Exmoor's very own 'Little Switzerland'

We recently spent a lovely afternoon in and around spectacular Lynton and Lynmouth. The sun shone and views were stunning. Hadn’t had a trip on the cliff railway for years – how could I show I was nervous standing at the front of the carriage as we descended 500 feet – on a 1:1 gradient - when two under five year olds were standing next to me without a care! Gulp! 

After a spot of lunch al-fresco style in one of the many tempting restaurants – we headed off for a wander at The Valley of the Rocks.  No sign of any goats – but a friendly Exmoor pony paused his munching as we passed. The famous white lady was there for all to see – even though she wasn’t there! For those who don’t know the White Lady is a hole in a rock which, viewed from one particular spot resembles the shape of a servant lady (can you spot her in the photo attached?!). Move from the viewing spot and she reverts to just a hole in the rock!All in all a fabulous afternoon in this beautiful part of Exmoor.
