Postman’s Rest is a beautifully renovated second floor apartment in Lynmouth which enjoys sea views from the living room and bedroom. Situated with a very short walk of the centre of Lynmouth and having a private parking space 300 metres 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 is at the back of the cottage with hillside views and is well-equipped with an electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge/freezer, washing machine and slimline dishwasher. The bedroom is light and airy and the fully tiled bathroom has a corner bath with an electric shower over it. Postman’s Rest is 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.
