This walk is a must if you are staying in Lynton. It is part of the South West path and has a good surface for walking. Much if the walk is high up with a steep drop to the sea below but the views across...More

There is literally nothing here for those not interested in walking, but for them that are, it's spectacular. Unfortunately, there's very little information available unless you prepare in advance, there being no mobile service in the valley. However, walk and be rewarded. The cliff paths...More

The walk around the coast was tarmac and very easy to walk, and if you start at the right end (just up hill of the car park) it's mostly down hill with lovely views

I don't have the best head for heights, but I got over it to go back again as it was such an incredible place. The views are truly stunning. We ate our lunch along the cliff path and even though it was drizzling we had...More

Drove through and parked up last week to show son the valley. He was in awe and making up stories of dragons and knights due to the rock formations. Great for imaginations and the views are breathetaking even when there is a fine mist.

Lovely walk, part of the coastal path walk, from Lynton to the Valley of the Rocks was not too testing but it was harder work further on towards Woody Bay.

This is a great walk combined with a visit to Linton or Lynmouth. Great views and safe for supervised children. Watch the teashops in Lynmouth though, some are a rip-off - see my other reviews.

Coastal erosion of a former river valley has led caused this extremely unusual but spectacular geological feature which is definitely well worth a visit although you'll need a good head for heights if taking the coastal path.

Lovely peaceful walk. I wouldn't recommend for young children, pushchairs or wheelchairs as some of the paths are narrow and beside a steep cliff. Leads down to a very nice beach.

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!
