Just a mile away from Lynton along the SW Coastal Path lies the breathtaking Valley of the Rocks. This stunning natural wonder is home to a variety of goats and boasts incredible rock formations that will leave you in awe.
Immerse yourself in the beauty of the entire coastline. After an amazing time exploring the enchanting Lynton and Lynmouth the day before, it was time to embark on our adventure through the Valley of the Rocks.
Parking is a breeze! We had previously parked in Lynton’s spacious car park to gather supplies, and to our delight, our ticket was still valid for the car parks here too. Ample space, clean facilities, and even the presence of police officers ensuring everyone’s safety during these uncertain times added to the charm of this picturesque area.
Prepare to be amazed as you ascend to the top of the rocks, treating yourself to a mesmerizing view of the Bristol Channel. With a gentle breeze to keep us cool, comfortable walking shoes were a must as the loose scree could be deceiving. But trust me, the effort is absolutely worth it for the breathtaking panoramic vistas.
