This cosy bunkhouse can be found at Countisbury close to Lynton and Lynmouth on the North Devon Coast. The bunkhouse is surrounded by the dramatic Watersmeet Valleys and Exmoor. From it you can easily access the coastal path, the Atlantic Surf beaches and it is a great place to experience Exmoor's dark skies. The perfect base from which to explore north Devon. With hiking from the door and lots of great places to cycle. There is salmon and trout fishing on the nearby river Lyn and in the winter there's canoeing. The bunkhouse sleeps 6 in bunks in one room so is perfect for family groups. Exmoor bunkhouse (also in this guide) which sleeps 18 is across the road so bigger groups can also be accommodated. The Blue Ball Pub is also across the road and Lynmouth is just 1.5 miles down the hill. Facilities include a well equipped kitchen, electric showers, bed linen and woodburning stoves. There is an open grassy area at the side of the bunkhouse but no formal garden. Parking is available. Children must be supervised outside as the A39 runs close by.
