The weather forecast for our week in Lynmouth looked rather a mixed bag of wet and dry...but not a bit of it ! It was sunshine all the way with clear blue skies which was a real treat .
We got to do a bit of sketching in the harbour on the first afternoon to get into the 'swing' of it.
Our Hotel was the small and friendly Rock House perched right on the mouth of the River Lyn at the entrance of the harbour. There is literally a different view from every window.
Our first day out we drove down into the valleys and stopped at the small hamlet of Malmsmead with it narrow bridge and ford which was so captivating that we stayed all day. At times the only sounds you could hear were the murmouring of the river and birdsong....Bliss !!
The next day we headed up to the Valley of the Rocks where we picked a spot right on the cliff path with far reaching views right across to the far headland. It was quite warm in the sun but darned nippy in the shade !
On our last day we went up the Cliff Railway to Linton and spent a very pleasant few hours sketching and drinking coffee.
I have already booked dates at the Rock house for next year so if this a break that would suit you please check my website for details.
