Min­utes from the se­date plea­sures of Devon’s Lit­tle Switzer­land – aka the Vic­to­rian sea­side town of Lyn­ton – this wild val­ley gapes like a dragon’s maw, high above the sea. Two gnarly tors, Cas­tle Rock and Rugged Jack, thrust up like bro­ken teeth; cling­ing to their windy sum­mits is like rid­ing Godzilla. From here adrenalin junkies will love the ter­ri­fy­ing but beau­ti­ful toll road along the coast to­wards Combe Martin. The val­ley con­tains more sooth­ing plea­sures: a cream tea at the quirky Mother Mel­drum’s Tea Rooms or an idle week­end hour watch­ing wick­ets fall at the spec­tac­u­lar grounds of Lyn­ton and Lyn­mouth Cricket Club.
