My wife and I spent four nights in our campervan at this very nice, peaceful site in a beautiful setting. Facilities include a small shop, a café, launderette and toilets/shower facilities. The site is situated in the village of Lynbridge on the outskirts of Lynton. It is a very clean and well cared for site, albeit rather basic but still represents good value for money. If you have small children they would need to be very closely supervised as the site is adjacent to a stream in the lower part of the valley. On the down side, freeview TV reception was non-existent at the site until we were informed we would need to connect up to the post adjacent to our pitch which gave us an analogue signal, affording us six channels. The aerial connection cable was supplied to us free of charge from the shop which catered for most basic needs for campers. Be warned though, if you choose this site as your base and want to leave your camper/motorhome on site, Lynbridge is in a VERY hilly location. It took around 20 minutes to walk into Lynton but it was very tiring to do so. Lynton is very nice and the shops (those that were actually open) consisted mainly of tea/coffee shops, a Costcutters and one other small convenience store. Lynmouth is at the bottom of the extremely steep hill and is also worth a visit. We would recommend travelling on the famous cliff railway to get in and out of Lynmouth as the cliff walk is an absolute killer on the legs! As for the Sunny Lyn site, if you want a quiet, clean and affordable site, this could well be for you - but beware those steep hills!
