Exmoor Coast Weekend Day 2 - Valley of Rocks & Watersmeet
7 people attending
13 places left
The second of two day walks around the beautiful Exmoor coast
This 10 mile circular walk starts and ends in pretty Lynmouth. We then head along the coast towards Valley of Rocks with its wild goats and interesting rock formations before before looping round to Watersmeet - a dramatic river gorge in ancient oak woodland. There's a great National Trust cafe there and hopefully we'll have time for a cream tea.
Dogs are welcome on the walk but will need to be on the lead at times.
Fancy making a weekend of it?
This is day 2 of a weekend of walks in the Exmoor coast area. Day one is a linear hike from Porlock Weir to Lynmouth.
I'll be camping nearby on Friday & Saturday night at the lovely National Trust Cloud Farm campsite. Welcome to join me for beers around the campfire or stay elsewhere.
