Walk the dramatic coastline, famous for its stunning coastal views and wildlife. Explore the ancient, dense woodlands; home to a number of rare species and England’s tallest tree.

Coleridge's most famous poem was written at a farm house between Porlock and Lynton.

You might be following their footsteps from hundreds of years ago by walking from Porlock to the Valley of Rocks or cross the Tarr Steps near Dulverton, a medieval clapper bridge.

Ride the famous Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway, the highest and steepest water powered railway. Opened in 1890, the railway was designed to move goods between the two towns. You can now enjoy spectacular views across Lynmouth Bay and the surrounding area.
