“Armospheric”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

This is a lovely spot with strange shaped rock formations and lots of goats, although not so many as in years gone by, when they would come and put their nose through your car window!. You can walk down to Lynmouth, to Lee Abbey or to Fore point lighthouse, with views across to Wales if you have binoculars. If you are really adventurous you can climb some of the rock formations. There is a new car park, so not as good now for just sitting by the side of your car on the grass as it was years ago. Our son took his first steps on the grass here thirty six years ago so the place has special memories for me.
You can end your walk with a visit to Mother Meldrum's tea garden which has excellent food.

“Goot for goat lovers”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Good for a walk, and the goats are fascinating. Its on the coastal path, so easy to include in a days walk.

“Simply stunning, wild and enchanting”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

One of the most natural beauty spots i've ever visited.
It's natural beauty will blow you away. There are even goats grazing on the hillside who are not shy in coming your way so watch out for these.
It's rugged and green. The coastal path around is without barriers so be careful where you walk.
I loved it more than i could imagine and wish i could take the view home.

Parking is handy and close. I had no problems parking and paying for an hour.

“Natural beauty.”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Stunning views and an outstanding couple of hours. Not a tough walk, but well worth the trip. Wildlife lovers and amateur geologists will fall in love with this spot.
