 We had a very enjoyable two night stay. Welcomed by very friendly staff. Lovely site with the river running alongside.

Toilets showers and wash basins very new and always pristine clean.

If you walk through the campsite and past the pub, its a lovely 15 / 20 min walk into Lynton, along a wide easy path. Although a fairly short but steep hill at the start and end.

Lynton has plenty of pubs cafes and restaurants, many of them do takeaway. Also lots of interesting small independent shops and even a small cinema.

Other lovely walks nearby, especially a circular walk to Watersmeet.

The pub that is next to the site is very recommended for its beers and delicious Thai food.

All in all a perfect stay which we would definitely recommend.

 Amazing views guaranteed to offer you 50 shades of green, and if you are really lucky some blue skies to go with it.

The site is fantastically clean and ran by extremely friendly and professional team.

The shop is small but very well stocked up.

We stayed on the platform next to the river, it can get a little noisy with the sound of downstream water but we enjoyed it.

It is not the easiest site to get to so drive carefully.

 Nicely located site next to a small river. Mixture of touring vans, tents and static homes. Facilities good - they look a little outdated from the outside but have been recently refurbished inside.

There is a charge for using the hairdryer provided in the ladies (disappointing as the last site we stayed on provided one free of charge). Site was well set up with dedicated water and power supply.

Dishwashing and laundry area and freezer for icepacks. It's about a one mile walk into Lynton which should be not be attempted down the road - but there is a pleasant alternative path.

The walk to Lynton might be challenging for the less fit / able as it's quite hilly in places.

There is an adjacent pub with Thai restaurant which we recommend - the food was delicious.

Staff at the site were very friendly and helpful.

 A really nice place with a very friendly welcome.

Everything is neat and clean.

A footpath goes directly from the square to Lynton.

We can gladly again.


Ein wirklich schöner Platz mit einem sehr freundlichen Empfang. Alles ist gepflegt und sauber. Ein Fußweg geht direkt vom Platz nach Lynton. Wir können gerne wieder.

 Sunny Lynn Campsite is a lovely little campsite in a beautiful setting with nice and friendly staff!

It's location means there's only a nice little walk into the local village.

 We have just returned from a really lovely short break at Sunny Lyn. We stayed in our tent, with electric hookup, and were a family (and a grandad!) with two children aged 8 and 6.

The site was beautifully kept, and is situated along the bank of a small river. The pitch was spacious and level, and water taps/electric was easily accessable. There seemed to be a set for the pitch in front and behind each pitch.

The facilities were at one end of the site, but not much of a walk. The showers, which were brand new were hot, plentiful and we didn't have to wait! Previous reviews mentioned that they were small - but this definitely is not the case. There was plenty of room to shower and there was a dressing area with a bench and ample pegs to hang towels etc. They were kept very clean.

We really liked the fact that cars were not allowed on the pitches - there is parking for one car opposite.

The campsite was very peaceful, the owners respectfully asked for noise to be kept to a minimum between 10. 30 pm to 7. 30 am, and everyone seemed to follow this. It was lovely falling asleep at night listening to the river and the owls hooting away!

The children were able to paddle in the river, and were absolutely delighted to find tadpoles and bits of "treasure" they found in the river. There are steps leading into the river, but water shoes are a must, as well as some old clothes as the boys got a little muddy!

There is a footpath from the campsite you can take which will take you right into Lynton, and you can take the victorian railway down to the pebbly beach below. It's a really beautiful walk, although very steep in places, but it was lovely to not have to drive anywhere!

We had a breakfast on the last morning before we left, and it was excellent - the perfect incentive to pack up the tent as quickly as possible!

All in all, we all thought this was the nicest and friendliest campsite we had been too, and the boys even said they preferred it over others where there had been a playground.

Reviewer: BandS504 1 review from this member

 Beautiful site in a beautiful location beside the river. The Wardens were super friendly and helpful.

As our stay was at the end of the season we unfortunately did not get the opportunity to use the cafe as it was already closed as was the shop.

One small negative was the size of the showers, tiny cubicles which made showering a challenge for any other than the smallest folks! However, this did not detract from our stay which we thoroughly enjoyed despite the weather!

Hopefully the next time we visit the pub next door will be up and running. If like us you have a motorhome and rely on walking to get out and about be aware the walk down into Lynmouth is via a very steep road as is the climb up to Linton via the footpath, although do-able.

 Wonderful little campsite - spotlessly clean site and facilities.

Flat grass pitched situated by a flowing river.

We were greeted by super friendly staff.

Easy and scenic walk into Lynton.

 Uncomplicated and fairly formalised tent pitches alongside the river. We were the only tent to pitch there for all of October.

The rest of the site was static caravans, lodges, or formal pitches for campervans.

Clean and tidy facilities. Staff were friendly.

Easy walk to Lynton, Lynmouth, and most importantly a 1minute walk to the Olde Cottage Inne pub and Thai restaurant.
