Lynton, Devon

Enquire Now You enquired

Sunny Lyn Holiday Park is a charming park found in the picturesque heart of Exmoor National Park, a short distance from the spectacular North Devon coast and the small village of Lynton. The park is open throughout the year, and offers a small, level field that can accommodate touring caravans, motorhomes, and tents across 38 pitches.

All of the motorhome pitches at Sunny Lyn Caravan Park are hard standing, while a selection of the touring caravan pitches are. All motorhome and touring pitches benefit from electric and television hook-ups for guests to use during their stay. A small number of the camping pitches offer electric and television hook-ups, too.

Static caravans, holiday lodges, and apartments are also available on the site for guests looking to stay in the area.

On the site, guests are free to use the heated toilet blocks, which also have hot shower facilities as well as shaving power points and hairdryers. Wi-Fi internet is also available for guests staying at Sunny Lyn Caravan Park to use during their stay. Pets are allowed to stay on the site, however guests are encouraged to fully read the guidelines related to pets on the park website.

The park offers easy access to local friendly businesses and shops that are found in Lynton. Guests will find everything they need in the village for a comfortable stay at the park. A short walk takes holidaymakers down to the Harbour of Lynmouth, which offers remarkable views of the surrounding area as well as some wonderful scenic walks.

Exmoor National Park offers so much to do that guests never have to leave the area during their stay if they don’t wish to. As well as being open to explore at guests’ own leisure, there is a wide range of organised activities that take place across Exmoor throughout the year. Such activities include guided walks and cycling pursuits, horse riding, and climbing. Guests looking for their own leisurely activities often enjoy finding a quiet fishing spot either along the coast or on the banks of one of the many waterways that meander through Exmoor. Such locations often provide beautiful walking routes, too.

The Exmoor Heritage Coast is a ‘must see’ destination for anyone staying at Sunny Lyn Holiday Park. The park owner’s recommendation is that early mornings and evenings are often the best time to take in the landscape, owing to the relative lack of fellow tourists you’ll encounter at these times.

Guests looking to explore beyond Exmoor have plenty of options at their disposal. Driving along the North Devon coast in both directions from the park is highly recommended. To the west guests will find the popular seaside town of Ilfracombe, while a short drive to the south takes them to Barnstaple and Bideford, which themselves lead onto roads that take guests into the heart of Devon to Dartmoor and Exeter.

Closer to the park a drive to the west takes guests to Minehead, a popular tourist town in its own right and one filled with shops, pubs, and restaurants as well as cultural attractions including art galleries, cinemas, theatres, and live music venues.

I stayed here 08-11 June 2017 to attend the Lyn Valley Classic car event and meet up with some friends in the area. The campsite is fairly small, in a quiet picturesque area behind the Old Cottage Inn car park, (access via a style or gate) on the bank of the fast flowing West Lyn River above the Lyn Bridge. There is no parking on the grass, parking is along the roadside adjacent to the pitching area. It would be better if more tent pitches had hook up, such as those adjacent to the roadside parking area. The new owners are very welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them, (they made phone calls and checked on the internet for me to find out where the Lyn Valley Classic was actually being held). The site is very well kept and managed, the facilities are very clean. The hair dryer in the gent's operates on 20p's. The shower cubicles were a bit cosy, but just about managed to get changed without any problems. Plenty of piping hot water. I didn't use the cafe or laundrette so can't comment. The river is fast moving which meant no mosquitoes or biting midgies. The sound of the river was quite therapeutic. The Old Cottage Inn, serves Thai food, highly recommended, apparently the landlady is a Michelin star chef, which accounts for the high standard. There are some good real ales, I can recommend the Doone, a dark bitter - very nice. Lynton is a short 5 minute walk along Lynway which is directly opposite the pub, a short fairly steep climb which levels out, along an enchanting pathway, then a short equally steep descent into Lynton, and Lynmouth another 5-10 minute walk, with plenty to see and do in both villages. I can also recommend the Vanilla Pod in Lynmouth as a place to eat. There is often live music from local groups in a few of the pubs, perfect place to stay for easy access to Lynton and Lynmouth, and there as some good walks in the area. I had a thoroughly enjoyable and peaceful stay, and highly recommend this site, good for families, couples or solo travellers.
