I stayed here 08-11 June 2017 to attend the Lyn Valley Classic car event and meet up with some friends in the area. The campsite is fairly small, in a quiet picturesque area behind the Old Cottage Inn car park, (access via a style or gate) on the bank of the fast flowing West Lyn River above the Lyn Bridge. There is no parking on the grass, parking is along the roadside adjacent to the pitching area. It would be better if more tent pitches had hook up, such as those adjacent to the roadside parking area. The new owners are very welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble for them, (they made phone calls and checked on the internet for me to find out where the Lyn Valley Classic was actually being held). The site is very well kept and managed, the facilities are very clean. The hair dryer in the gent’s operates on 20p’s. The shower cubicles were a bit cosy, but just about managed to get changed without any problems. Plenty of piping hot water. I didn’t use the cafe or laundrette so can’t comment. The river is fast moving which meant no mosquitoes or biting midgies. The sound of the river was quite therapeutic. The Old Cottage Inn, serves Thai food, highly recommended, apparently the landlady is a Michelin star chef, which accounts for the high standard. There are some good real ales, I can recommend the Doone, a dark bitter – very nice. Lynton is a short 5 minute walk along Lynway which is directly opposite the pub, a short fairly steep climb which levels out, along an enchanting pathway, then a short equally steep descent into Lynton, and Lynmouth another 5-10 minute walk, with plenty to see and do in both villages. I can also recommend the Vanilla Pod in Lynmouth as a place to eat. There is often live music from local groups in a few of the pubs, perfect place to stay for easy access to Lynton and Lynmouth, and there are a good variety of walks in the area. I had a thoroughly enjoyable and peaceful stay, and highly recommend this site, good for families, couples or solo travellers. Point to note – there is very little mobile phone coverage in the area, or at least if you are with vodafone! – though there is a telephone kiosk outside reception.
