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 carvings were nice to see.

A popular haunt of the locals who fancy a nice walk this is the go to if you enjoy nature, history and getting out there. The path is a bit muddy in sections but to be expected, the place has beautiful colours and a very mystical feel.

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 than St Nectans glen, you can see the power of the sea first hand.

Used to come here regularly as a child but couldn't remember what it was called so thought it was lost to me. After scouring maps of the Cornish coast, finally found it and can't wait to revisit. One of the hidden beauties of Cornwall, 100% worth the visit.

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

Hard to access from the coastal path but well worth the scrabble over rocks.Well worth a visit,beautiful place with a tranquil atmosphere. Walk to the old mill nearby you will find the bronze age carvings. The whole area is owned by the national trust so is well looked After.

Well, what a fabulous treat! We found the two labyrinths that have been carved into the rock wall in Rocky Valley. It had been raining so they were easy to find.
