Property Type: 
Coastal catered house sleeping 12 for special occasions and walking breaks, near the coast of Exmoor, in Lynton

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Woodlands, Lynton, Devon, sleeps 6-12 in 6 bedrooms.

Woodlands is a luxury boutique guest house perched on the side of a hill overlooking the picturesque West Lyn Valley in Exmoor. It is just 10 minutes walk from the villages of Lynton and Lynmouth, linked by the famous water powered Cliff Railway, and provides an excellent base for exploring the many delights of North Devon as well as a retreat for those seeking some rest or relaxation with friends.

The owners aim to provide their guests with a great night's sleep and wonderful good quality locally sourced food. Steve is an accomplished cook and can offer catered dining at the property, making Woodlands perfect for a group of adults celebrating a special event.

The dining room has a lovely valley view opposite the house and guests can watch our wild bird life while eating breakfast or dinner. Outside seating is available to enjoy some al fresco dining with views aplenty or you may prefer the elegant lounge, a sociable space for the group to enjoy the open fire and a drink in a relaxed atmosphere. An excellent local pub is only 500 yds away.

The 6 bedrooms at Woodlands provide a luxurious experience with top notch contemporary en suite facilities, fluffy towels and complimentary toiletries. Two superking rooms have access to a first floor balcony offering a further wonderful opportunity to take in views of the surrounding area.

The hosts, Steve and Lesley, are both avid walkers. Lesley is a qualified Nordic walking instructor so why not take advantage of this great opportunity for groups to learn a new skill in a fantastic environment. From the setting of Woodlands on the coast in Exmoor, 4 key walking paths (the South West Coastal Path, the Two Moors Way, the Tarka Trail and the Coleridge Way) can be accessed directly, so there really is every opportunity to get out and about. And after a big hike, Lesley (also a qualified sports massage therapist) can offer guests a hard earned pamper session, or just treat yourself to a relaxing therapy.

Visitors to Woodlands might also like to explore the quaint Victorian towns of Lynton and Lynmouth, with lots of cafes and good quality restaurants. This is unspoilt hidden and rugged North Devon.
