Postman’s Rest 

The most Gorgeous picturesque Bay

A second-floor apartment with views over the river to the sea.

Tucked away in the centre of Lynmouth, Clifton House is steeped in Lynmouth history, previously housing the local Post Office, which played a central role in the Louisa Lifeboat Overland Launch of 1899 and also the devastating flood on the 15th August 1952. The doorway to the shop on the ground floor has a plaque depicting the height of the flood waters.

Postman’s Rest is a great base for enjoying all that Exmoor and North Devon has to offer.  Lynmouth and its twin village of Lynton are linked by road, steep footpath and famous water powered cliff railway and the area is known as Little Switzerland due to the spectacular surrounding countryside.

Local amenities including shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs are on your doorstep. With the added bonus of private parking you may wish to leave your car whilst you explore the area on foot. The area offers wonderful coastal, riverside and countryside walks that can be accessed from the village including famous beauty spots such as Watersmeet and The Valley of the Rocks. Alternatively, jump in the car, Exmoor has fantastic countryside to see, lovely flora and fauna and don’t forget the Exmoor Ponies and the famous Exmoor Red Deer whilst hidden coves and wide sandy surfing beaches are all within a scenic 40-minute drive.

The space

Set in the heart of the coastal village of Lynmouth, the apartment benefits from its position on the second floor offering views of the river, sea and coastline. Recently refurbished, it offers well equipped and very comfortable accommodation.
