Fantastic cliff and coastal walk from Lynmouth with goats grazing, beautiful views. It's a must for walkers or alternatively car parking with toilets and café at the Valley of Rocks

We walked from Lynton town centre up past the Tourist Information Centre, and then along the coast path to look down on the valley. Beautiful and peaceful - we saw only a couple of other people on a sunny September day

Walked from Lynmouth on circular route, easy walk. Good views, worth a visit. Plenty of rocks to climb if you want but also some big drops! Good for dogs too. Nice cafe in valley for pit stop..

Yes dogs are more than welcome on these walks providing they are kept under control and on a leash for their own safety. There is plenty of active wildlife that you will see as you travel along the path. Mountain goats... More
