A level tarmaced cliff top path a short walk from Lynton. Very dramatic and terrific views from the coast. Well worth the detour.

This geological enigma is a strange, haunting wilderness, with the barren landscape and rocky outcrops giving the impression of being on another planet. If heading west, the road continues on a steep and winding path, in parts close to the cliff edge, and continues to...More

We took a walk through the valley of rocks from our guidebook. We ended up very high up with some stunning views down into the valley and out to sea! The footpaths were of mixed quality and at times a little narrow and steep. Worth...More

The rain gave the valley an eerie atmosphere but it was very scenic. The local goats added to the experience, plus the walk back along the coast to Lynton was very enjoyable.

We walked from Lynmouth, up to Lynton and then to the Valley of the Rocks. The effort is rewarded with the most stunning views. Well worth the effort.

I have visited North Devon many times over the years & can't quite believe that I missed this - it is absolutely stunning! We didn't have time to walk around on this visit, but will definitely return and I will do a proper review afterwards....More

What an amazing place to visit . All the rock formations perched on top of the cliffs that make you think are going to roll down on top of you.

It was a very long walk. It was a Crapy day when we visit so a little foggy so can't see far much but still beautiful view. A little narrow walks so in my opinion not recommended with very young kids.

Im pretty sure you can, most of the path is tarmac I just cant remember exactly how far. Its a decent way though. There is a lack of shade so if you can take some cover/sunscreen for your child if it is hot. Hope this helps!
