The Valley of Rocks
A walk along the coastline - and just a few minutes from our doorstep! A round trip will take on average, around 45 minutes, and you'll get to see some amazing views that this picturesque location has to offer. This walk follows a solid path from door to door. You'll get a clifftop view of Lynmouth and - on a clear day - the Welsh coastline over the Bristol Channel. To walk along to the end of the Valley will take a little longer but those extra steps will pay huge dividends...
This walk involves a little more climbing! From our doorstep you'll need to walk down to Lynmouth - or take the Cliff Railway down to the harbour. From there you can commence the walk along either side of the East Lyn river, along the gorge and experience some stunning scenery. There is a lower riverside path or for more spectacular views of the valley the higher woodland path is worth the climb. The Hoar Oak and the East Lyn rivers join at Watersmeet - this is National trust land and there is a picturesque tea room serving cream teas and light snacks.
You could take the car to Malmesmead, which is about 5 miles from Lynton, where another beautiful walk is to be found. The confluence of the Oare and Badgery Waters and the entrance to the Doone Valley, which was used by R.D. Blackmore as the location for his well known novel Lorna Doone. Starting off from the little arched bridge, follow the meandering river as far as you want to walk, then turn back and head for a refreshing cuppa at the Farm!
