Lynton’s centre is within healthy walking distance and offers a good selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and tea rooms. Lynton is twinned with the pretty village of Lynmouth, set on the banks of the River Lyn, overlooking the sea and reached by a cliff-side railway. Lynton and Lynmouth are within Exmoor National Park and nearby there are excellent walks including The Valley of The Rocks. Coves and beaches range from small sheltered locations such as Lee and Woody Bay to the World renowned surfing beaches at Woolacombe, Putsborough and Croyde. More extensive shopping facilities and amenities are available at Ilfracombe and Barnstaple, both about 45 minutes by car. The area can be accessed from Junction 27 of the M5 Motorway and along the A361 North Devon Link Road which leads on to the A39 Atlantic Highway. The nearest Train Station is located at Barnstaple which connects to Exeter and from there, or Tiverton Parkway, there are regular mainline railway services to London (Paddington in just over 2 hours).

DESCRIPTION
Alford House comprises an attached period property which presents whitened rendered elevations (only just repainted) beneath a slate roof.
