Long Pool, Watersmeet

  • _MG_1744

Watersmeet is a famous National Trust area of wooded river walks. There is a Waterfall or Gorge with small plunge pools by the teashop but 1.5km further on is Long Pool, a rather eerie long ravine and pool overgrown with ferns and oaks, set under a Waterfall or Gorge. Very deep, 50m long. Watersmeet is 2km south of Lynmouth on the A39.

Lovely swim but look out for the tiny leeches!

Started at watersmeet tea rooms, paddling in the shallows. Slowly walked upstream finding shallow pools to swim in along the way, with the occaisional natural water slide in the form of gentle rapids! Really fun day out in a stunning location in the woods. We were there for a whole day and only saw part of it but would highly recommend it! Easy to hop in and out of all the rock pools with the dog who loved it too. But deeper bits you can swim properly in too.Great day out, especially the chance to dry off in the sun and get a slice of homemade cake at the gorgeous tea rooms after 🙂
