This path meanders a lot. it has steep climbs, rocks, and some mud (if it's wet) and sand, so you have to be on your toes, but it's worth it. We sat by the sea just watching the waves roll in and out. It was...More

Gorgeous walk out to the sea, past two labyrinths carved into the cliff face behind the old mill. It's a challenging walk beyond the mill, but overly so. Wear good shoes and use a walking pole if you feel at all unsteady. So peaceful and...More

Although a challenging walk, it is worth the effort for the spectacular scenery. Perfect for dogs too!!

A lovely walk along the river. The name 'Rocky' valley gives you a clue about the terrain and as a 5ft woman, there were some parts I found tricky as I had to stretch or jump. The remains of the mill house and the labyrinth...More

This lovely rugged valley is one of the best on the north Cornish coast by far. A hidden gem which is fairly easy to navigate. To sit at the foot of the valley on the rocks and watch the waves is just fantastic. Far better...More

See my review of St Nectans Glen - its a much better walk and gets you down to the coast and the coastal footpath. There is a bit of parking on the road near the start of the footpath.

Well worth a walk, past the holiday accomodation, past the ruin of a mill and through to the cliffs. Spectacular and walks also onwards to Boscatle from here

Park in the Bossiney Bay car park, walk across the fields through there and then a wooden signpost should say Bossiney Bay and point down. Do NOT follow this path! Go up the steps at the side and there you are- Rocky Valley... More
