Lynton & Lynmouth Cliff Railway
If you decide to head off to the coast, a great place to visit is the coastal village of Lynmouth and especially its cliff railway that connects to the village of Lynton. Lynmouth has lots of independent stores, ample parking and has a great harbour wall to enjoy some fish and chips. If you like golf they even have a pitch and putt course with a great view of the coast.
Of course, if you use the Cliff railway you elevate to the village of Lynton. The cliff railway is known as the highest, steepest, water powered railway still in operation. As one carriage descends, it pulls the other carriage up. It is, a marvel of Victorian engineering. At the top of the incline, you can get some lovely views of the surrounding coastline. Walking into Lynton you will be surrounded by narrow streets, gift shops and you will be spoilt for choice on restaurants and ice cream parlours.
