Could have sat watching the changing sky and sea all day. The sea views are amazing. Even enjoyed watching the wild goats play amongst the rocks.

This walk from Lynton is a well maintained tarmac path, and not too difficult to climb. However, this path is very high, and not at all suitable if you do not like heights!!

This valley is near Lynton and worth a visit. You can walk from Lynmouth if you are fit. Otherwise you can drive there and take a small walk along the coast path. The views of the rugged coastline are stunning and the sea below is...More

We have visited here many times but are still memorized by the scenery. The walk along the coast path is recommended down to Lynmouth. We were lucky to see the wild goats that roam the Rocks, there is a tea room and public toilets.

The views from these rocks are absolutely stunning. Walk around them. Sit on them. But be aware that there are no safety features that guards you from the 100+ meters free fall into rocks, beach and sea. Though I have vertigo I didn't want to...More

Stunning views from the cliff path and lots of goats. At times the path is very narrow with steep drops so a good head for heights is needed. Well worth the visit - and call in at the Sandrock for a beer on the way...More

Hello I'm afraid not. Have you looked at the Tarka Trail?

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!
