coming from Boscastle towards Tintangle you hike via green pastures and along hedges of blackberries which feed you all the way. Hike is easy and well marked. Allow 2-3 hours depending on quantity of Picture taking Brakes you consider.

What an amazing experience to see the remains of the castle that was built in the medieval times! To walk around the cliffs with those amazing views, and see the statue of king Arthur that was erected on those hills! Absolutly worthwhile making the trip!
