See and Do

Gable Lodge and Lynton are within the beautiful, unspoiled Exmoor National Park.  The guesthouse is a few minutes walk from breath-taking views and landscapes that have been untouched by time.  The area is a walker's paradise but there are also a whole range of activities for adventurers of every age and inclination.

The Valley of Rocks

The Valley of Rocks was formed during the Ice Age when the East Lyn River was diverted westwards.  Once the ice retreated, the river could resume its usual course leaving the dry valley we see today.  A short stroll away, here you can enjoy dramatic rock formations and caves.  Stop for tea or ice cream at Mother Meldrum's cafe and while away the time watching the feral goats.​

The Cliff Railway

Enjoy a ride on the only fully water powered railway in the UK.  It's been here since 1888 and is still the most eco-friendly mode of transport bar your own two feet!

Woody Bay Steam Railway

Step back in time with a ride on the Woody Bay steam railway.  Roll through the Devon countryside and enjoy tea at the station.

Heddons Mouth

The Heddon Valley, on the Exmoor coast, was a favourite haunt of the Romantic poets Wordsworth and Coleridge.  It is one of many locations in the area with towering cliffs sloping away to lush wooded areas and quiet bays.
