About Exmoor Bunkhouse

Surrounded by dramatic valleys, rugged moorland and an impressive rocky coastline, the 18-bed Exmoor Bunkhouse is the ideal holiday destination for intrepid explorers of all ages.

Ramble along the coast path or head out into Exmoor to discover some of this beautiful National Park’s hidden gems. Fishing enthusiasts should make a bee line for the River Lyn, one of the best waterways in the area to hook a salmon or trout. Otherwise, you can explore the river by canoe or kayak.

With the Atlantic battering the North Coast of Devon, fantastic surf spots are in no short supply. A little further afield, the nearby towns of Lynton and Lynmouth offer a relaxing diversion from the wealth of outdoor activities available.

Take a ride on the famous cliff railway before stopping in at a café or traditional inn for a hearty lunch.
