Not breathing for me, but still nice place to visit. Allows you to walk a lot and explore and hike. It has plenty of parking places where you need to pay for parking, but it is not too expensive. It needs min. 2 hours visit or more. :)

You should go when the weather is nice. When we went there, it was raining all day, although you cannot expect sunny days everyday in England. The footpath takes to Lynton, but we gave up given the heavy rain. If the weather is nice, the scenery would be magnificent. There is public parking at the bottom of the rocks. If you get 4 days free pass for Lynton & Lynmouth, you can park here for free.

An absolutely beautifully stunning valley whichever way you come from . I walked uphill from Lynmouth then the coastal path before climbing up the peaks of the valley with spectacular views all round. Wild goats , wild exmoor ponies , just spectacular x
A place filled with beautiful sceneries of nature. Great way to spend a day hiking and enjoying the lovely views of rock formations and the sea next to them. Ample parking, clean toilets and a cafe with friendly staff are available.

A truly magic place! Walk along the steep cliffs, climb the highest peaks and enjoy the views. The goats will keep you company and the wind will whisper stories from long ago in your ears. Take the toll road to Woody bay to complete the experience
