Exmoor Bunkhouse, Countisbury, Lynton, Devon, EX35 6NE

Exmoor Bunkhouse is a converted barn owned and managed by the National Trust providing comfortable, high standard accommodation. Two large dormitories each sleep 8 in bunk beds and there is also a 2 bedded leaders’ room. Facilities include excellent hot showers, drying room, lounge/eating area, fully equipped kitchen plus a barbecue and outdoor seating. Environmental awareness is practiced with recycling and composting facilities, the hot water and heating are provided by solar energy (with a back-up boiler for those less than sunny days). The bunkhouse is situated at Countisbury on the North Devon coast surrounded by dramatic Watersmeet Valleys, moors of Exmoor and coastal paths. Lynton and Lynmouth are nearby and the Atlantic surf beaches are within easy reach. Other local activities include walking, horse riding, boat trips, fishing and cycling. However you spend your time the bunkhouse is ideal for getting away from it all with friends, family or as an organised group. Butter Hill Barn (also in this guide) which sleeps 6 is opposite if you wish to bring a larger group. Photos ©John Millar, ©Stuart Cox & ©Chris Lacey.
