Zig Zag to the bottom of the hill and you will see a picturesque bridge going over the river to Sunny Lyn Camp Site and The Cottage Inn.
Enjoy some local beers in The Cottage and / or some food, the beer garden looks over the West Lyn River and during summer months there is often a nice selection of Roses on display from the landlady.
If You are staying at Sunny Lyn camp site this will obviously be your starting point.
All set ? so its time to head up the hill, don't worry we are not taking the cattle Shute again, cross over the bridge and turn left, follow the path along the river and up to the top of the hill until the trees clear and you see a bench on you left, this is a view point over Lynmouth, many walkers stop here for a breather and a selfie. Walk on a little further and take the wooden gate on your right, this leads over the field and through a lane to the starting position, could go back in for another pint ? ha ha, go on.
When opening gates to fields please always remember to close fully behind you and never have dogs off of a lead, many local farmers have had problems with sick sheep and cattle due to stress from dogs so must be respected.
