“Simply stunning, wild and enchanting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 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.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 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.

“Watching the dolphins wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2014

We were visiting Lynton and Lynmouth and saw signs for this place so we walked along the road to it. If I'd known what a lovely place it was I would have taken a picnic and made a day of it. Amazing view from the rocks. We walked the coastal path back to Lynton and spent a while just watching all the dolphins In Lee bay. Definitely a place to go back to.

“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.
