The Rising Sun, Lynmouth, Devon, Exmoor National Park
The Rising Sun in Devon is an award winning 14th Century thatched smugglers inn overlooking a tiny picturesque harbour and Lynmouth Bay with its stunning backdrop of the highest hogback cliffs in England and situated on the edge of the Exmoor National Park, where herds of deer, wild ponies and birds of prey roam free.
All of our rooms are comfortably appointed and possess a charm and individuality seldom found in modern hotels. Fabrics and furniture add to the olde worlde charm of a 14th Century inn, while features such as TV's, telephones with data ports, hairdryers and kettles provide the modern comforts.
Many of the bedrooms have half tester beds and have been refurbished, combining the latest design fabrics with traditional elegance within a 14th Century ambience, assuring our guests of an unforgettable romantic experience.
The Rising Sun has an excellent restaurant specialising in fish, seafood, Lynmouth lobster in season and local produce, and we also serve great food in our bar area. Our menu usually changes daily.

Lynton and Lynmouth first became popular as a holiday resort in the 19th Century when the Victorians named it “Little Switzerland” due to its charm and the scenic location, with Lynton perched above high on the hill and Lynmouth nestling below in the valley.A water powered cliff railway was built to connect the two and is still in operation today. Earlier visitors to the area were the romantic poets Southey and Shelley, who were inspired by its beauty.
