About Exmoor Bunkhouse

Set on the fringes of Exmoor, you’ll have miles of coastal hikes and moorland adventures on your doorstep.

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 make 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.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
