The Valley of the Rocks

The Valley of the Rocks is a stunning section of coastline on the northern edge of Exmoor. It’s unusual from a geologic perspective as the valley runs parallel to the coastline, which boasts the highest sea cliffs in England. With incredible views from the coast path, take in the salty sea air and why not stop by the see if you can find the ‘White Lady’ near the top.
