Coronavirus Update: Lynton & Lynmouth is in Lockdown

24 March 2020

Further to the UK Government's instructions restricting travel in order to limit the spread of coronavirus, we are asking you not to visit Lynton & Lynmouth and to stay at home until told otherwise.

Government guidance states: "Essential travel does not include visits to second homes, camp sites, caravan parks or similar, whether for isolation purposes or holidays. People should remain in their primary residence. Not taking these steps puts additional pressure on communities and services that are already at risk."

We will endure this, but only with your help in following our Government's instructions.

Staying away keeps our community and businesses safe
By stopping the spread, you are giving our community more time to rebuild and recover.
Be safe, and be smart. Thank you.
Lynton & Lynmouth.
