Lynmouth then up through Wester Woods onto South Hill Common then down to Watersmeet and back along the river.Andy Savin, 30 June 2022
A mystical valley surrounded by peaceful walks in the countryside made famous by RD Blackmore.
The Lorna Doone Valley was made famous by RD Blackmore in his famous novel Lorna Doone. Today you can enjoy the extensive walks, bridleways and tea room, or stay longer at the Cloud Farm Campsite where you can sleep underneath the stars in a dark sky reserve.
Explore the valley and wider area, including Watersmeet and Foreland Point on the miles of waymarked footpaths, by bike or even on horseback. Nothing beats a good hot drink after a great adventure. Our tea and coffee are from fairtrade suppliers and we’ve also got a great range of herbal teas. For a real treat, we do a luxurious hot chocolate and of course, we are also famous for our cream teas – delicious any time of year.
A National trust car park and public toilets can be found at here. The buttery is fully accessible, please enquire about accessible parking, near to the Buttery.
The Buttery, Malmsmead, Lynton, EX35 6NU
Open 10.30-5 pm daily (1 April – 31 October)
