Really nice but expected a slightly bigger valley of these amazing rock formations. Was rather windy in some places so watch your step in places.

A must see, you can either walk from Lynmouth Exmoor National Park centre (which I recommend as you get great views en-route and great exercise walking up hill) or alternatively park in the car park located in Lynton opposite the valley. Truly a great experience, if there is one thing you see while in Lynmouth and Lynton, see the valley... More

Well worth a visit , careful on the cliff path as it is very step with no hand rails or warning signs.

The views were stunning, plenty of trails to walk. The goats were delightful, a bit shy and wary but a lovely experience for us to see. Toilets were available and a shelter. Well worth a visit.

We have toured this area loads of times. However, it never fails to impress. Due old age ailments we stick to the car. Still great, what a wonderful County, what a wonderful Country.

We walked from Lynmouth, up through the gardens to Lynton & around the cliff path to Valley of the Rocks & down to Lee Abbey & Lee Bay. Total distance (there & back was 5 miles). It was a stunning walk with great views & fascinating geology. The cliff path was fun - quite exposed but feels very safe. Met... More

This place is magical. We took the coastal path to valley of rocks from Lynton. Take the path in front of the church (clearly marked). Walking past all the hotels brings you to the coastal path. The walk gets better and better as you walk further. Look out for the goats.. It can get very windy.. the path is paved... More
