Lynton to Foreland Lighthouse

A long climb to Foreland Lighthouse.

Approx: 1-2 hrs |

Highcliffe to Lynmouth

After leaving Highcliffe House, follow Sinai Hill to the bottom then walk past the Vanilla Pod cafe.  Follow the pedestrian road up towards the Valley of Rocks Hotel.

Cross the road and take the narrow road between St Mary’s Church and the Valley of Rocks Hotel.  This is called North Walk. Keep walking and where the road branches, take a right turn then first left.

Lyndale Bridge in Lynmouth

Take the Tors Road follow the East Lyn River on your right until you reach the sign for Countisbury. Bear left and continue to climb until you re-join the Countisbury Road. Follow the signs to the Lighthouse.

To Foreland Point by car

Take the A39 towards Minehead, passing through Lynmouth over Lyndale Bridge. Pass the Blue Ball Inn about ½ miles to the Car Park on your left. Follow the signs to the Lighthouse.

Getting back to Highcliffe House

A little way down the hill on the left is a sign to Wind Hill which will bring you back down to Lynmouth avoiding a walk on the main road.

  1. Walk back up the ‘zig zag’ path – remembering how steep it is
  2. Take the Cliff Railway from Lynmouth to Lynton
  3. Walk back up the main Lynmouth Hill road.  This is not the best of walks and can be dangerous as there are no footpaths.
  4. Call one of Lynton’s taxis
