Hi can anyone advise what the approach down to Tintagel boulders is like in terms of steep grassiness/scrambling ? Cheers Ed

It's a pretty steep path down through a grassy/bushy slope, but not scrambly until the very end as you get down onto the shorefront rocks. I'd say you could probably do it but it isn't a walk in the park.

Tricky but doable decent I would have thought.

You will need to keep a really close eye on them though once down there - round the back of the main bouldering block are some big holes a toddler could fall down and end up in the sea.

Personally I’m not sure I would take my toddler down there, certainly not on my own, but if you’re a couple who don’t mind taking it in turns to watch them while the other climbs then I guess it could be ok.

Other options that would be much more kid friendly would be Northcott and Hartland further north/east along the coast, or Godrevy quite a long further south/west.

Seconded. If they are mobile it's potentially quite dangerous down there

Ed - there’s a thread running on the other channel at the moment with more detailed suggestions on places that would be more suitable with a little ‘un in tow.
