Lynton & Lynmouth

Lynton and Lynmouth is a small and friendly bowls club with a mixed membership, re-established in 1981, and well known for its delicious teas.  We have six rinks, plenty of parking, and we welcome both visitors and touring teams.   Each year we run promotional events to encourage new members who are always made very welcome. 

In 2013 we were awarded a grant from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities Fund to extend and modernise our clubhouse, which included provision for the local tennis and table tennis clubs.  We now enjoy using our very attractive, newly refurbished clubhouse which was officially opened on the 5th April 2014. 

Lynton and Lynmouth are situated in an Area of Outstanding Beauty within the ExmoorNational Park. Our bowls  green is in a picturesque spot in Lynton- nestling between hills near the entrance to the Valley of  Rocks.  There are some lovely walks nearby, around the Valley of  Rocks and along the cliffs, both easy and more strenuous, all with outstanding views. It is also possible to drive through  the Valley of Rocks, if time is short, (perhaps spotting  wild goats and Exmoor ponies on the way). Lynton itself has a good mix of individual shops, including two art galleries, a local art and crafts centre, and the Lyn and ExmoorMuseum, plus a good range of  cafés and restaurants. 

We have the unique water powered Lynton and Lynmouth  Cliff Railway with fabulous views as you travel up and down the cliffs from Lynton  to the pretty harbour village of Lynmouth which has retained it’s “olde worlde” charm.  Here, too, a good range of small individual shops and eateries can be found.
