Good stroll. Lots of walkers and many walking their dogs. Good place to take your kids to chat about river flow and bank erosion.

Nice long walk along the river in the woods. It is a small waterfall, however, very beautiful woods and surroundings. The walk could take 30 to 60 minutes. Free car park.Cafe 'Inkies' at the Car Park serves yummy smoked BBQs.

25 years ago this was a place that the Cornish folk kept secret from the rest of us - except by personal invitation. Although it is just 2-3 miles from the A38 near to Liskeard only the locals knew about it. But the secret is...More

1.2 mile round walk with lots of scrambling. If you've got a pushchair you won't make it far along, and granny had had enough by the time we got back to the car! Beautiful scenery and amazing icecreams back st the cafe.

If it was rainy it could be pretty muddy but it's not steep. Just uneven. Trainers or walking boots would be fine. X

This place sounds beautiful however I need to know if these paths are wheel chair friendly for my daughter?

In my opinion no. They are not 'made' pathways and in the lower reaches are a bit up and down with tree roots across the earthen pathway
