For a challenging Ilfracombe walk, the 18 miles between Ilfracombe and Lynton includes some beautiful views, including the Valley of Rocks. This walk is on the South West Coast Path and is well signed. It’s worth splitting this walk into two, stopping at Combe Martin.
It’s worth bearing in mind that one of the highlights of the walk is its views across the coast and over to Wales, so it’s perfect for bright clear days. Oh, and take note - the best spots for admiring the stunning scenery are Little Hangman, The Valley of Rocks and Great Hangman.
