“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2014

Stunning views and incredible rock formations. Lovely walk - not suitable for young children as it's a sheer drop one side!
The mountain goats made us jump as they skipped their way sure footed up the rocks!

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Stumbled on this by accident, a really amazing place come rain or shine. Bring money for car parking, and warning roads are very narrow, single track.

“Great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

The cliff walk from Lynton is fantastic, mostly Tarmac and easy with great views and can be a round trip without retracing your steps.

“Stunning Views Of The Bristol Channel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

Was only here for about an hour, but at every turn there was another stunning view. The goats were fun to watch but i didn't like the way that some members of the public decided to try and chase them away.
But The Valley Of Rocks is a must see for anyone that's in the Lynton area.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

This is possibly one of the most surprising sites and sights in Britain. The valley is beautiful, and if you climb to the top of the left side it drops to the sea. I know of no-where else where you can climb from the valley floor to the top of the valley for there to be sea cliffs the other side. Loook after your children, I had not realised what the site was like, so allowed my 8 year old son to climb the valley alone. I nearly has a heart attack when I caught up with him at the top! Hand was then very firmly grasped!
