Description

Lyn Cottage is a delightful traditional home sat alongside the church with views over the rooftops to the sea. It is a double fronted detached property of great character in a surprisingly quiet yet central spot. The front door opens into the spacious lounge where comfy sofas surround an electric wood burning effect stove. A separate dining room connects through to a fully equipped modern kitchen. The three bedrooms upstairs share a pristine family bathroom. The idyllic fully enclosed garden has lawns and mature shrubs and borders, plus a few steps down to the lane for a short-cut into the centre of the village. The village of Lynton is in an area known as England’s Little Switzerland. This Victorian village has a lovely selection of shops, tea-rooms and cafes and boasts The Lyn and Exmoor Museum, which is housed in St Vincent’s Cottage. It has some interesting exhibitions of Exmoor life, including information about the local lifeboat and the Lynton and Barnstaple Railway. Both Lynton and Lynmouth owe a great deal to Sir George Newnes, who in 1887 along with 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 in 1890 and, apart from needing new track in 1908, operates now as it always has. Head inland for Exmoor National Park, which has Europe’s very first International Dark Sky Reserve, the tallest tree in England, the highest cliffs in England, almost 250 species of bird and over 1,000 different flowering plants and grasses, the highest number of wild red deer in England and wild native ponies, perfectly adapted to the upland conditions of Exmoor. Drive west for Ilfracombe, which has a delightful mix of Victorian and Regency architecture, pretty harbour, independent shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs. The harbour, with Damien Hirst’s infamous bronze statue Verity, and the Tunnels Beaches, are well worth a visit

Reviews

An excellent location within Lyndon with easy private parking. It was very private with a lovely secluded garden where we were able to enjoy the great weather we had. Wifi was a bonus. The kitchen was well equipped as we enjoy cooking on holiday.

Mrs Mary C,

Excellent location and value for money.
