A long walk from our guest house at Pine Lodge, Lynway. The views around every bend are spectacular. The walk was easy and enjoyable. There were some steep slopes but being rewarded with outstanding views was well worth it.

Easy flat walk around the headland with the most stunning views you could imagine. Amazing. Top it all off with a treat at the tea rooms by the car park !!

A lovely walk especially if the weather is good. Need to be reasonably fit, but well worth the effort.

The valley has some spectacular rock formations. Paths are good, but once you go onto the coastal path be prepared for a bit of vertigo. You're quite likely to see wild goats. Parking is limited at busy times.

Im pretty sure you can, most of the path is tarmac I just cant remember exactly how far. Its a decent way though. There is a lack of shade so if you can take some cover/sunscreen for your child if it is hot. Hope this helps!
