An easy walk on the South West Coast Path through a patchwork landscape of tiny fields bounded by ancient stone walls and dotted with iconic mine chimneys and engine houses such as the Botallack Count House and the world-famous Levant Beam Engine.

Although the weather wasn't great , we enjoyed our day here. The National trust rep was helpful and knowledgeable and the site has a nice little teashop. Nice day out.

The ruins at Botallack on the cliffs in combination with the blooming nature are simply a truly beautiful sight. There is not much signage but just to walk through the area makes the visit well worth while! The people at the count house are lovely...More

Botallack is a very photogenic place, great for dramatic photos or for filming a period drama, such as Poldark. At the Levant mine we had two guides. The first guide showed us most of the site, then handed us over to the gentleman that was...More

A beautiful coastline with plenty of ruined engine houses. The workings of the Botallack Mine are possibly the most famous and certainly the most spectacular. The main track is easy, although it can be wet in places, but if you want to explore you need...More

This part of Cornwall is exactly how you imagine it to be, with steep cliff walks peppered with old mill structures in various states of repair. The section around Botallack has a high concentration of mills, and there are a number of circular walks from...More
