Watersmeet

Watersmeet

Where the Lyn rivers meet is a lovely spot for sketching, just watching the birds and animals or having a cream tea at the National Trust house. A 45 minute walk from Lynmouth takes you through the stunning wooded river valley which is one of the deepest in England. A shorter walk is from the car park on Watersmeet Road. There are beautiful waterfalls and the whole area is a walker's paradise.
