  King of the Forest
by King_Golo

The former hunting and fishing lodge of Watersmeet south of Lynton and Lynmouth makes for a great starting point for some nice walks through the oak forest surrounding the building. Just in front of the lodge (which nowadays is owned by the National Trust) the rivers East Lyn and Hoar Oak Water flow together, and on their banks a number of trails lead through the woods. I don't want to recommend a particular walk as we only strolled along some of the paths, but they were all beautiful with their gnarled oak trees and the soft burbling of the streams. The restaurant at Watersmeet House provides many a tasty snack. Unfortunately you have to pay a rather high fee for the car park (1 per hour), but you can avoid that by parking 500m up the road on a free car park.

Address: Watersmeet Road (A39)
