Valley of the Rocks, Lynmouth

(4.8/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • Stunning with plenty of parking and goats, if you like goats! Not massive in area but hosts some good meandering walks. Don't suggest letting dogs off here. 
  • If you are in the area or near you have to visit the Valley of the Rocks, its breath taking! The town of Lynton is nearby, although we visited in January and everything was shut, but the walks around ...  more »
  • Just outside Lynton on one of the prettiest sections of the Coast path in Devon, this is a most interesting section with its rocky formations. Footpath at this stage is gentle making access easy.
