Things to do, Places to go

We are lucky enough to live in a beautiful part of the country with plenty of things to get up to. Whether it be pony trekking or mountain biking on the trails of Triscombe (5 minutes away), or visiting the prehistoric Valley of the rocks at Lynton and Lynmouth; below is a list of some great places to go while you visit us.

Valley of the Rocks

The Valley of the Rocks is a dry valley that runs parallel to the coast about half a mile west of Lynton. It is famous for its geology, its stunning views and of course its herd of goats.
There are two public car parks in the valley. For those not in such a rush, you can start from Lynton by the Valley of Rocks Hotel and follow the ‘North Walk’, which forms a coastal path leading to the valley and offering stunning views of Lynmouth Bay and the sea.
The coastal cliffs here are amongst the highest in Britain and provide a real challenge for climbing enthusiasts.

Kilve Beach

Kilve Beach is not far from Watchet just the other side of the Quantocks. The beach is a mixture of rock, shingle, coarse sand and mud making it the perfect location for fossil hunting, there is also a fresh water pool that you can fish.
