We walked here and then walked down to the Beach for a great day and walk from Lynton. Take some water, sunscreen and good shoes and then look out for the mountain goats.

A cliff side walk from Lynton gives you views of spectacular rock formations. The path is well maintained but there are steep drops on the sea side.

Beauterful scenery if you are in the area its worth a visit short walk from Lynton, if you want a longer walk it's about 8 miles from Lynton via the rocks to the hunters Inn

Accessible walks past the great rocks some on tarmac. The views out to sea and along the coast were breathtaking. Plenty of bird to watch too.

Leaving even the hilly pleasure of Lynton doesn't prepare you for the incredible Valley of the Rocks. Couple of car parks and lots of places to sit and picnic, or walk round the rocks, wonderful views on the coast path down to the Bristol Channel,...More
