A magnificent stretch of coast path that allows you to marvel at the unique rock formations whilst simultaneously enjoying the sea views. NOT to be missed if you're in the area.

Stunning walk along the coast line. Easy access on a flat paved path makes this incredibly accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs There isn't any fence or barrier and its quite a sheer drop down to the sea so care is required. Lots of longer walks...More

Great easy walk. Beautiful scenery. Launch off for a number of other walks. Can do the short circular walk or select much longer. All easy enough for all ages. Lynton great little village to stay.

There is a car park at the mouth of the valley although i left my car in the village so i walked to and back from the valley. It took about 30 mins. It is a short, moderate walk with stunning views.

Not that I know of. The main spot for fossiling on the South West Coast Path are Lyme Regis and Charmouth on the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site in Dorset (about 2 hours away by car)
