  • Another one of Cornwall's "Must See's". Not just great views, but a really enjoyable walk and views of "King Arthur" statue.

  • a short walk along a small river that leads into the sea, that has carved its way through the rocks and opens into a stunning canyon with flowers and waterfall and rock pools. I loved this place

  • Easy to reach from Tintagel, even by foot, and there is definitely something special about the glyphs, although they are somewhat easy to miss due to the absence of signs (the wall that contains them is on the eastern side, right before the abandoned mill when your back is facing the coast). If you are in the area, this should be at the top of your list (it takes about half an hour to get from the road to the sea or vice versa)
  • What a beautiful place to explore. Various directions you can walk, and lots to discover. We spent an afternoon paddling in rock pools, exploring follies, and generally just exploring the area. Not overly busy when we went. Not wheelchair friendly, parking cam be a bit of an issue too. But worth a trip.
  • Absolutely beautiful here. Very much so recommend going here if you haven't already. But there is definitely quite a lot of walking to do but it's definitely worth it. You can walk all the way around I think to Tintagel or Boscastle but I just walk up and back down which takes a good 20 minutes or more.
  • Rocky Valley is a small valley in the parish of Tintagel, north Cornwall, and has been carved by the Trevillet River in Trethevy around one mile east of Tintagel. It is a super walk down to the valley/canyon. You follow a short path alongside the river and various small waterfalls, through a wonderful woodland, including some historical buildings and interesting Labyrinth carvings. The highest point above the river of this stunning meandering slate valley, or canyon, towers over 70 feet. The river mesmerisingly cascades over various levels carving and creating deep pools and gully’s as it drops down to the ocean and wonderful cliffs below! It can be tempting to jump in, but be very cautious, it is not as easy, or as safe as it looks!! Just stroll on down and marvel!! 🙌 See if you can find the carved poem near the ocean.
  • 1000x better than St Nectan's Glen. Forget the over populated and over prices St Nectan's Glen and go to Rocky Valley instead. Nowhere near the walk, loads better views of the sea and a great waterfall that collates into a fabulous pool. Why not go for a swim 😉
