Absolutely awesome and stunning place to visit!!!… the views are a photographer paradise!!!…the coastal path/ walk from Lynton is beautiful, but please be very careful, keep dogs tight on a lead and children properly supervised as it's not for the faint hearted!… but this is certainly worth doing as the views of the coastal scenery is astonishing and especially on a clear day!!!!… there is also a small cafe, and toilets when you get down to the open valley ground. This place is well worth the 5 stars rating!!… as I love photography and I loved this place, I will definitely come back soon.!!📷👌👍

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).
