Postman’s Knock is a beautifully renovated first floor apartment in Lynmouth which enjoys sea views from the living room. Situated within a very short walk of the centre of Lynmouth and having a private parking space 300 yards away, the spacious apartment benefits from a modular corner bed settee in the living room which can be converted to a bed for alternative sleeping arrangements. The modern kitchen/diner and living room are located at the front of the property with large windows allowing plenty of natural light through and with lovely views out to sea. The bedroom and bathroom are to the back of the property are are both tastefully furnished. The owners also have a further apartment that sits above Postman's Knock called Postman's Rest and can be found here. The properties are just a couple of minutes’ walk away from the centre of Lynmouth with its wide variety of shops, restaurants, pubs and cafes. Lynmouth is a timeless village that has recovered from the depths of despair following the floods in 1952. The village was ravaged by torrents of water during the summer of 1952 but has since been lovingly restored, and a memorial museum now stands proudly in the village, offering a sobering experience of the moments after the floods struck. Often known as 'Little Switzerland’, the area is a walker’s paradise – if you’re feeling energetic, try the spectacular Watersmeet circuit, or for something new why not give a geocaching trail a go. For a unique coastal walk, follow the path from Lynton to the iconic Valley of Rocks, famous for its unusual geology and intrepid goats! Lynmouth is connected to its twin village by the famous water powered Cliff Railway. In 1887, Sir George Newnes and Thomas Hewitt began to lay a 900 foot twin track up the steep gradient between the two villages. The unique water operated funicular cliff railway was opened three years later and, apart from needing new track in 1908, operates now as it always has.
