We have many steep hills around Lynton and Lynmouth. Tackled sensibly they are nothing to feel worried about.
Make sure your vehicle is in good condition. Select a low gear for long descents and do not use your brakes for too long. A short stab on the brakes should be all that is needed if you have selected the correct gear. Failure to follow these procedures may result in your brake linings catching fire and, even worse, your being unable to stop when required.
Lynmouth Hill (B3234) is not suitable for caravans and heavy vehicles with limited manoeuvrability. Please use Watersmeet Road (A39) and take care on the bends.
