Glen Lyn Gorge

Equipment Available: 1 Tramper
  • Inland Water
  • Forest/Woodland
  • Information centre
  • Dog friendly

Glen Lyn Gorge is a dramatic gorge near the mouth of the River Lyn near Lynmouth on Exmoor. A number of steep paths lead to waterfalls and viewing areas with great views into the gorge, across Lynmouth and over to the Welsh coast.

The Tramper can be used on two paths. The first gives access alongside the river to 'Moses Pool' and the second leads upwards through woodland to a viewing area at the top of the gorge. Both options are 'out and back' along the same route.

Opening times and Tramper availability vary throughout the year due to the owner's other commitments. Booking the day before a visit is therefore advised.


The Power of Water Exhibition tells the story of two great events in Lynmouth’s history: The 1952 flood disaster and the epic 1899 overland launch to Porlock of the lifeboat Louisa. See how the once destructive waters of the Glen Lyn Gorge now provide “green energy”. Please note The Tramper cannot be taken into the exhibition and access is via steps.

There is a public pay and display car park opposite the gorge entrance and accessible toilets in Lynmouth at the National Park Visitor Centre which is also well worth a visit.
