You continue along the beautiful coast path to Lye rock before returning to the start point in the village.
The area is steeped in Arthurian legend with the walk taking you past King Arthur's Hall in Tintagel village. This historic building contains works of art telling the story of King Arthur and is a popular visitor attraction.
