Rookery Cottage is a time honoured stone-built property; originally a Coastguard watch tower(and was used as such as recently as world war 2).

It commands the most spectacular sea views and is situated in the stunning Conservation area of the Exmoor National Park. The owners have for several years allowed guests and as a holiday let, the property has proved to be exceptionally successful, year on year; receiving back to back bookings throughout the entire holiday season.

Such unique properties rarely come onto the market...Rookery Cottage has been in the ownership of the current owner for over 30 years! This is a rare opportunity to purchase such a unique piece of history.

Lynton offers a variety of amenities to include a good range of shops, restaurants and cafes. It also has the historic Cliff Railway, which provides access down to Lynmouth and back again.

Known as Little Switzerland, the village offers some interesting walks and has some stunning scenery, which includes the famous Valley Of the Rocks.
