This is a National Trust owned site and is one of the prettiest walks that I have been on. Note that to see the waterfalls you need to be reasonably fit with a decent pair of walking shoes on. Although we have are having a dry season there was still waterfalls to be seen.

We visited this stunning gorge whilst staying nearby in Lifton. A place of outstanding natural beauty and well worth a visit.

I'm a frequent National Trust customer but this left me disappointed. The volunteer that took our payment was very rude and even though my husband had our 4 month old in a carrier when we were paying, he told us afterwards that you are only able to walk in one direction on the path between the waterfall and the gorge....

We visited this site on a weekend over easter holidays, expecting it to be relatively busy but we were surprised at how few people we encountered. Even by the time we finished our walk, 3 hours later, and the car park had filled up, it still didn't seem crowded anywhere. The scenery and views are stunning, and my anti-walking 6... More

Outstanding views throughout the gorge. A most enjoyable walk on very uneven ground in parts but not really suitable for disabled.

We enjoyed this walk, although sometimes hard going !!! The waterfalls were a wow factor! Thought it was a bit pricey! I think they should have paid us for walking the whole circuit! Very enjoyable day!

Amazing place, beautiful walk, we took our grandson last time, and he managed it although he was only 5 at the time. We love to do this each time we come. Not good in wet weather.

A sunny day in spring is great for a walk - and this one is a great one, with enough 'interest' in the form of the waterfall, 'tunnel falls' and finally the devil's cauldron as well as the wold garlic and bluebells. Altogether a very pleasant walk - which we got round in normal shoes - with 7 and 9... More

I went here just after I was bored on a sat day and found this has a waterfall. But was surprised to find a walk that was relaxing and surprising at times. Trip for entrance to the waterfall was easy enough and through woods. Return was on a rocky path, sometimes just one foot wide path. But very enjoyable. With... More
