Valley of Rocks
Lynton, Devon EX35 6JH
The Valley of Rocks, just west of Lynton, is famous for its herd of goats, its geology and its stunning views.
A dry river valley, it is believed to owe its existence to a former extension of the East Lyn River which now meets the sea at Lynmouth.
Situated on the dramatic North Devon and Exmoor coastline, the Valley of Rocks boasts some of England’s highest sea cliffs. Climb up Castle Rock and experience the feeling of being on top of the world as you gaze across the Bristol Channel.
Beaches & Walks
Wringcliff Beach lies just beyond Castle Rock and can be accessed by a steep path.
The valley extends on to the Lee Abbey Estate which has wooded walks, and a small lane leads down to Lee Bay, a sheltered sandy beach popular for kayaking and wild swimming.
