The Labyrinth, Windsworth, Looe

Return to Gallery ->


Open to the four winds – whatever the weather there’s a lot of it here! The sense of achievement in gaining access to the labyrinth adds to the tranquillity of the place itself. It is a beautiful place, with stunning views, and extraordinarily quiet and peaceful. It is always open.

If you want to visit the labyrinth for the day, check that the tide will be going out when you plan to visit. Park at Millendreath or Seaton (the Cornish Seaton) and double-check that the tide's going out. Walk along the seashore for a mile or so, find a thick knotted rope running up the 60-foot shale slope and use it to haul yourselves up, then follow the steep, steep path up through the woodland and follow signs to the labyrinth. Approx 1/2 mile, and 300 feet up. Then it's back the same way.
Or try parking at NT Bodigga Cliff and fighting your way through the uncut undergrowth to access Windsworth land and its walkable path. That way, it's about 1/2 mile each way, with plenty of steep up and down.
Or contact the owner to ask permission to go through her garden and down through her pastures. That way it's a 1/4-mile walk each way and 100 feet steeply downhill through rough pastures.


The terrain is unsuitable for disabled access and there are no toilet facilities. Accommodation is available at Windsworth Old Coach House, a self-catering house for up to 8 people:
