Route 277 travels through Exmoor National Park and out to the coast at Lynton. To the south, it connects with Route 3.

From the road between Hunters Inn and Martinhoe, Route 277 follows steep rural roads through Martinhoe and past Lee Abbey in Lynton.  It then takes you into the picturesque Valley of the Rocks - a dry valley that runs parallel to the coast.  

This is a beautiful but challenging route that hugs the coast as closely as possible and provides you with some fantastic views of the coast and surrounding hills.  Much of the route is single carriageway with occasional passing places.
