Parking on the main road, this walk has a bit of everything. Walk along the woodland paths which are beautiful, then a wander round the old mill and then the path turns more rocky ending in the valley and sea. This is the second time we have been and enjoyed it as much as the first. Not too strenuous but sensible shoes are needed.

We parked at the car park opposite the tea room, walked down the hill to just before the lay-by and followed the footpath sign. The walk is a little rocky and steep in places so bear in mind if walking is difficult. But it’s worth the effort. Along the stream, under trees, passed the old ruins of the mill / rock carvings and up/ down to the valley and sea. We came back going up to the top, and along the sea path to the parking. Views are spectacular.

If you love rocks and water and natural architecture carved by the river, it's a dreamy place to visit. It's not an easy walk for those with any kind of mobility issues but it is most certainly worth it. There are treasures all along the journey, not just the final views of the sea. I liked the labyrinth carvings at the old mill.

I always caution with these things about people with mobility problems probably wanting to take a pass. Having said that there is a pull-off across from the Trevillet Mill where one can park. The walk is moderately difficult so wear good shoes. It's really beautiful, the ocean, the trails, just all the natural features, an old mill, some carvings said to be thousands of years old.

Lovely walk up the river from the beach up to the road. Can be slippery when wet and wear good shoes/boots

This is a beautiful valley leading down to the sea following the course of the Trevillet River.Good walking shoes are adviced and in summer watch out for snakes as there are very many of them around.

Stunning walk past an old mill with Iron Age carvings. Following the river/ stream as it flows through an amazing beautiful valley, you are rewarded with great views where it eventually flows out into the bay! You will need decent foot-ware but it is not too strenuous - we did it with two children and we saw walkers of all ages. You can park at the Bossiney Bay Car Park just out of Tintagel and walk roadside towards Boscastle where you'll find the walk signed about 1/3 mile on the left. Then Follow the Rocky Valley to the end, take the steps up to the coastal path and back round to the Bossiney Bay car park for a really nice circular walkk with cracking views!

This is a pretty straightforward walk that takes you down the valley to the sea, but with some fantastic views. You can access it either as a longer cliff walk, or by driving to the end (although their is a bit of a steep part near the road to be aware of) and you can easily combine it with a walk up to St Nectan's Glen

I'd heard about this place from a friend, so researched a little, online & planned to visit, with other friends, during our stay in Tintagel.
Good footwear is a must, especially after rain as it can become quite boggy. The greenery is wonderful & I simply love places where you walk alongside a stream that tumbles over rocks, such as this.
After a while, you come across some derelict buildings, which used to be Trethevy Mill now in ruins. This was a Corn Mill later used for making blankets, yarn & worsted cloth for hose. It's in this vicinity that you can see the 2 strange 7-ring labyrinth carvings in the rock wall, supposedly dating back from the Stone Age, between 1800-1400 BC. I imagine that many people fail to see them & walk on by. Locals have been aware of them for many years but they were only officially recognised in 1946. Some experts say they are fakes.
It's quite atmospheric, yet peaceful, near the old buildings; wish we'd had more time that day. There's an air of mystery, yet calm. People make pilgrimages there & leave offerings to the Ancients.
There's no tea room or facilities but I'd quite happily take a picnic, then sit & watch the water, whilst wondering who carved those labyrinths & why?
