Description

This spectacular hill majestically rises some 800ft (240m) out of Lynmouth Bay and provides the most beautiful backdrop to Lynton.

Hollerday Hill is a great place to walk and explore for families, couples and dog walkers alike. Wander through a spectacularly rock-strewn landscape and woodland, the flat remains of an ancient Iron Age hillfort and the most spectacular views of the Valley of Rocks and beyond.

Hollerday Hill is probably most famous for the grand old Hollerday House that used to sit proudly near it’s summit. This once imposing mansion was built in the 1890s by Sir George near the summit of Hollerday Hill, directly behind the Lynton Town Hall.

Sir George died here in June 1910 and in August 1913 the mansion was destroyed by fire. The remains of the house were demolished by the army during the Second World War and much of the stone re-used to build bridges and structures destroyed by the 1952 flood.
