Quite an easy walk. There is a small walk around one of the main hill that is easily reachable, you will walk alongside the coast and may find wild goats – before to head to a small bush and to come back on the road. We didn’t want to use the road so we headed back to where we came from and used a small shortcut – but going up the hill (you can then easily access to the parking back – much better than using the all road section).

Valley of the Rocks is awesome. You walk along a spectacular coast path from Lynton which starts through woods but soon opens out to sea views with a quite sheer cliff drop on one side. It is covered with bracken so not as dangerous as it looks. There are many wild goats living there and their antics are fun to watch as you walk along. Within 15 minutes you come to spectacular rock formations which you can climb for even better views. It's amazing!

Valley of Rocks. National car part, toilets available. And very beautiful view. 1-2 hours sufficient to cover main area. If you have kids, please take extra care while walking round the path/mountain.

One of the most scenic and stunning places to see in this country. A beautiful area to walk and a rocky adventure if you want to climb!

Incredible place to visit and can be done easily too.3 hours we climbed the rocks and walked around them and the lower coastal path in to town and back up on the higher coastal Path. About 3 miles in total.
