With its commanding position overlooking Lynmouth town and harbour Clooneavin makes the perfect base for exploring the delights of North Devon. The spectacular scenery surrounding Lynton and Lynmouth prompted the Victorians to dub the area "The Little Switzerland of England".
Exmoor National Park is on the doorstep with over 700 miles of footpaths and bridleways. The rivers provide both fly, game and course fishing, whilst horse riding and walking allows the visitor to experience some of the most stunning landscapes in the country. The magnificent rock formations in the Valley of the Rocks show this landscape at its most surreal.
Dotted with pretty little villages such as Dulverton and Oare, where, in the famous book "Lorna Doone" Lorna was shot on her wedding day in the villages little church, Exmoor's history will fascinate and enthrall you. A walk along the steeply wooded valley to Watersmeet to view the dramatic waterfalls is also a day out to remember.
North Devon also offers a wealth of things to do and see. Barnstaple and Ilfracombe have excellent theatres and during the summer, festivals take place right across North Devon. Trips to Lundy Island twelve miles off the coast are well worth the effort and North Devon's miles of sandy beaches are some the cleanest and finest in the world.
