Swallow’s Rest – The perfect location for your holiday.
Swallow’s Rest is just 3 miles from Lynton and Lynmouth, and a mile from the North Devon coast, and 3 miles from the Somerset border. There are far reaching views across the Exmoor landscape, and National Trust Woodland. Nestling in the delightful Exmoor countryside on the Devon and Somerset borders it is blissfully peaceful, yet not isolated or remote. The approach overlooks Lynton and the sea, and the South West Coastal path is just a stroll away, linked by a footpath which runs through part of the farm.
There is much to see and explore on Exmoor – the area was designated a National Park because of the flora and fauna, the beauty and variety of its wild landscapes. These include moorland, woodland, farmland, river valleys and the spectacular North Devon coastline with some of England’s highest sea cliffs.
Exmoor has the highest concentration of Red Deer in England, and boasts over thirty other native mammals.
The Exmoor pony is a unique species that is also becoming rare. Visit the Exmoor pony centre near Dulverton to find out more about this native breed. www.exmoorponycentre.org.uk
Countisbury, boasts England’s highest sea cliffs rising to 800 feet from the sea, a small parish church and a welcoming local pub The Blue Ball serving excellent food and drink.
Lynton and Lynmouth, often referred to as ‘Little Switzerland’ with the harbour village of Lynmouth where the tide is the 2nd highest in the world and Lynton perched on the cliffs above. This is where Exmoor meets the sea!
