The scenery is arresting ,maybe what one would expect in Scotland say Skye , it is not what one normally expects at the English seaside.

Wouldn't want to do this on a very windy day due to narrow paths and steep drops to the side of the footpath. It can be a bit scary watching the goats bounding over the edge, but they take it all in their stride. Some...More

Well worth a visit. You will need strong walking boots. It was a very windy day, so warm clothing needed. Also, the path along the cliff is not very wide or fenced off, so was a little scary. The stunning views were fantastic.

If you are close by, or even if you are miles away, visit the Rocks. Great walks and gorgeous scenery. You will not be disappointed. Pleanty of parking too.

We have been here a few times and it is an absolutely amazing place and a must see on your list if you are in the area. Walk from Lynton along the very high path above the sea and then if you are brave enough,...More

We had seen coastal scenes, of course, but the Valley of the Rocks took things to a new level. Unbelievably gorgeous, and some of the paths are paved. Lots of locals there prove it's a great stop if you're in the area. Well worth the...More

A great walk in the Lynmouth/Lynton area and easily accessible by car or foot from both villages. The rock formations and views along the coast and valley are amazing; kids will love the local goats.

The cliff walk from the town of Lynton along the coastal path to the valley of the rocks is more than possible with a pram but it is a sheer drop down to the sea so obviously care must be taken and once in the valley of the... More

Yes dogs are more than welcome on these walks providing they are kept under control and on a leash for their own safety. There is plenty of active wildlife that you will see as you travel along the path. Mountain goats... More

Valley of the Rocks with children (7 Replies)
I will be staying in Combe Martin for a week soon with a 7 year old boy. We've done the obvious kid friendly attractions like Watermouth Castle, the Dinosaur Park, Tunnels Beaches, Wollacombe beach. I'm looking for other interesting places within an hours drive or so. The Valley of the Rocks sounds interesting, but is it suitable for a child? I don't want to end up walking along the side of a bluff or anything dangerous. Any advice?

It's an open area between hills with the coast on the other side. I'm thinking he may enjoy climbing up the paths and running down. There'a a small beach at the end, Lee Bay if he wants to go for a swim and the rockpooling is good. There's also a cafe with witches hanging/flying from the trees (dont tell him, let him spot them) with the relevance to the witches cave. And wild goats. He may enjoy Lynmouth which is near with the Victorian hydraulic cliff railway and the Water Jets on the...More

Valley of the Rocks Hotel- outside gardens (2 Replies)
Hi we are staying at the Valley of the Rocks Hotel for a short break and was wondering if the Hotel has outside gardens where you can sit in the evening and have a drink watching the sun-set ? Any information would be much appreciated thank you- Gazza

Response fromToopaz|
Gazza, it does have outside gardens - but there is no mention of sunsets so not sure of the direction. You can always sit outside the Sun at Lynmouth which has a lovely view of the sea of an evening & nice to take a stroll along the green. Of course then there is the walk back up the hill! Check out the little cinema if it is not the weather for sunsets. The quickest way to find out is to PM someone who has done a review.

We would like to visit Watersmeet House, Cliff Railway, Valley of the Rocks, Glen Lyn Gorge (museum) and Shingle and rock beach in Lynmouth Bay. Could you please suggest the correct order in which to visit these attractions within the 2 days that we have.

Hi Suraj I am going to Lynmouth this weekend and saw your post in Forum. Would you give a few tips from your experience on what's worth a visit on a sunny weekend? We will be driving from London after work (7pm ish), so probably will only have a Sat and half Sun to explore the location. We will be based in Lynmouth. Many thanks Svetlana
