Seven of us went walking in the Valley of the Rocks, our ages ranging between 47 and 74. We split into two groups according to ability and fitness, one person suffering with rheumatoid arthritis thus being restricted in mobility.

The coastal walk from Lynton to Valley of the Rocks is fantastic. As you approach the Valley of the Rocks the scenery gets more and more breathtaking. We have been many times as it is so impressive.

An interesting valley with goats and sea views. Probably not a key destination in itself but would make a good addition to a walk.

A lovely gentle walk from Lynton on the coastal path which is tarmac, the views are just wonderful, wild goats on the slopes, well worth a visit.
