The Experience

A snug apartment with stunning sea views, close to Exmoor’s coastal path as it sweeps dramatically into the Valley of the Rocks. North Walk is a quiet no-through road that crosses – near the top – the funicular linking Lynmouth and Lynton, and the Downings have transformed their house into a calm retreat, with self-catering on the ground floor.

Living area, kitchen and comfy brass bed are all in one space – the bed cleverly hidden by a half wall topped with books and walking maps. Wind-blasted wanderers can return to sit on the suntrap terrace with homemade flapjack or cake and watch the boating world go by below, and then get cosy with a DVD. In the morning you may choose to seek out Sarah and Ian’s fabulous local and organic breakfasts in the B&B above – otherwise the kitchen has all the gadgets and the local deli is well-stocked with good things.

Your relaxed and charming hosts know the area well and can give you tips for getting the most out of the miles of coast, woods and moorland right on the doorstep – plenty of good pubs and tea rooms along the way too.
