Valley of the Rocks, Lynmouth
(4.8/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Feral goats and evidence of the last Ice Age, draw thousands of tourists annually to Valley of the Rocks. Startling rock formations line the 0.8 km (0.5 mi) basin that runs parallel to the coast in north Devon. The coast path is generally level thanks to a formally surfaced path that leads the way. If you prefer an even easier walk, several parking lots allow you to choose a spot close to your preferred destination. Ancient fossils line the valley. It's okay to pick them up during your walk but return them to their original spots to preserve the area. Public picnic areas and a cafe provide quiet spots to snack.

  • you need to get out of your car and explore, and visit the retreat a little further down towards Woody Valley. 
  • Stunning views, probably not for the faint hearted as it's pretty high yourself on windy days. 
  • So glad we found this place, very dramatic piece of coastline, lots of parking and quite a hairy, winding drive out. You can walk from Lynton but you can also bring your car.
