From our Hotel (The Heatherville), we walk down Tors Road to the harbour and took the Cliff Railway up to Lynton. After a quick look around The Lynton Leather Shop we took the cliff path toward The Valley of the Rocks. The path is in good condition but has quite a steep drop on the seaward side, so caution is advised. About half a mile along the path there is a fork where the right hand path continues along the cliff path. It is worth taking the left path, up over the top of the hill where the valley is to be seen in its full glory. The wonderful cricket pitch is below. Continue on the path, down to the road, turn right and skirt the cricket pitch. Just past the pitch is a super café - M.M's - (can't remember the correct name but those are the initials. After your refreshment, continue the walk down the valley to a small roundabout. Here you can make a decision to start back or continue for another medium difficulty walk to the Monastery/Retreat and then return. Take the cliff path back toward Lynton. After you pass through the gate at the end of the cliff path, there is a track off to the left which leads down to Lynmouth village. This is not recommended for those who are not so agile who can take a tarmac path a little further on. Both of these paths will bring you down to the village where a welcome drink can be taken at The Village Pub or a cream tea in any one of the tearooms to be found in the village. We are not spring chickens so the whole venture (including lunch) takes about 5 hours - but the views and the scenery make a rewarding exercise.
