Dramatic river gorge, ancient woodlands, tea garden and shop in stunning surroundings

Take a stroll around the 2,000 acres of Watersmeet and Countisbury, a haven for wildlife and breathtaking views.

On Exmoor, Watersmeet is the meeting place of the East Lyn river and Hoar Oak Water.

Explore the rich woodlands of the Lyn Valley and stroll along the riverside at Lynmouth, Combe Park and Rockford.

As a contrast, the South West Coast Path runs along the dramatic Glenthorne Cliffs, towards Devon's most northerly outcrop, Foreland Point.

Watersmeet is part of the North Devon coast managed by the National Trust.


Discover more of what Watersmeet can offer on one of our lovely Exmoor walks.
