Fishermans Rest has just had a Complete Refurbishment.

The cottage is now fully furished with all new high quality furishings.

Fishermans Rest is an absolutely stunning detached Cottage built in 1656. It is perfectly situated just minutes from Lynmouth centre in a secluded and private location. The property itself is finished to a tastefully modernised standard and perfectly placed on the edge of Exmoor National Park, Fishermans Rest provides excellent accessibility for walkers and families alike to explore the breathtaking and unspoilt moors, which surely can only be fully appreciated by strolling through them.For the more extreme of you water-sports & surfers can access the sandy beaches of Croyde, Woolacombe, Puttsborough Ilfacombe, Appledore & Instow which are just 20 Mins away.

This holiday cottage is perfect for families, walkers or cyclists who would like to explore the many footpaths and coastal walks that Exmoor has to offer as some footpaths start right from your doorstep!

Many examples of the outstanding beauty of Exmoor are nearby including the Doone Valley, Valley of the Rocks, Woody Bay and the Brendon Hills.

After a long day out you can relax on the sunny front terrace with the sound of the river as it winds its way down to the sea or stroll down to the harbour and jump aboard the cliff railway to Lynton. This pretty cottage is in a perfect location just off the centre of Lynmouth, a quaint seaside village boasting many pretty tearooms, eateries and thatched inns.

You can also head out of Lynmouth along the coastal road, up Countisbury Hill & into Sommerset enjoying the stunning views & famous wild Exmoor Ponies along the way. There are working market towns, pretty harbours and ‘chocolate box’ villages such as; Exford, Blue Anchor, Kilve, with welcoming pubs and other attractions. Others, like Dulverton, Watchet , Porlock & Williton are thriving small towns providing all the day-to-day needs of the surrounding villages and hamlets with butchers, bakers, tea rooms, pubs and restaurants which locals and visitors alike enjoy.

Some areas like the Quantocks and Brendon Hills are close by to some villages and offer that extra attraction to visit for that perfect day out !

The pace of life in Somerset and North Devon is leisurely, people still have time to stop for a chat, so relax and enjoy some of the places where the modern world seems a million miles away.

Shops, Pubs, Restaurants and the award winning Fish & Chip shop are no more than 50 yards away, all in all there really is something for everyone!

The West Country region

On Exmoor whatever time of year you visit you are sure to experience the full extent of Exmoor's beauty, from early spring with its snowdrops and the bluebell carpeted woods and primrose covered hedgerows of late spring through to summer when Exmoor's moorlands are a vibrant sea of purples, lilacs and yellows, alive with the sound of birds and insects. Autumn brings a wonderful golden colour and rustic charm to Exmoor's oak woodlands, and there's always the chance to hear the sound of rutting stags locking antlers. Winter is also a magical time on Exmoor. When it snows the landscape takes on a whole new beauty and snow covered Exmoor ponies are a sight to remember.

Steeped in history Exmoor area covers a wide range of places to visit from Combe Martin in North Devon along the spectacular coastline of Exmoor National Park, across the Quantock Hills to the tip of West Somerset and inland to rural villages and acres of open space, from rugged moorland to wooded valleys. It's all dotted with pretty villages where you'll find a friendly welcome.

Exmoor National Park covers 267 square miles of the beautiful rolling Devon and Somerset countryside. The Visit Exmoor area, which you will find on this website, stretches well beyond the boundary of the National Park, to include a variety of rural and coastal towns and villages and the Quantock Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Lynton

The spectacular combination of sweeping moorland with high, rugged, tree-clad cliffs and enticing sheltered bays make Lynton and Lynmouth almost unique.

Lynton and Lynmouth grew up slowly around two splendid deep and wooded river valleys, those of the East and West Lyn which have their origins in a maze of tiny streams high up on Exmoor and meet as they reach the sea at Lynmouth.

It was the Victorians who made these twin towns holiday centres, the quiet charm of which led them to name it the "Little Switzerland of England".

About a mile from the centre of Lynton is the famed Valley of Rocks. It can be reached easily by car but is much more rewarding to approach on foot via North Walk or Hollerday Hill. Dominating the valley is Castle Rock, while other strangely weathered formations bear names such as Ragged Jack and the Devil"s Cheesewring. The valley is populated by wild mountain goats - the only surviving group south of the Scottish borders.

The famous Cliff Railway operates at a gradient of 1:1¾ covering a vertical height of approximately 500 feet. The gauge is 45 inches and each car has a 700 gallon water tank which is filled at the top and emptied at the bottom, thus causing the lower car to be pulled up to Lynton, while the heavier car from the top descends to Lynmouth. The Cliff Railway was officially opened in 1890 and is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular rides of its kind offering an unusual trip with fantastic views.
