What an amazingly beautiful gem, excellent place to visit for all ages. Loved the day we spent there, from the walks to the coffee and cake. Even the gift shop had something a little different.

As the weather has been so kind recently thought I would pop in here. Although I live close by have never visited before although I wish i had.
I had our three year old with us and he loved the trampoline and play area. Lunch in the cafe was also excellent with very good freshly made sandwiches for us.
Then we climbed towards the waterfall and what a fantastic sight.
If you get the chance go visit.

Called in at the last minute and had a lovely afternoon. Dog-friendly location and started with a light lunch in the cafe. The parsnip curry soup was really lovely. Next, it was a hike up to the falls just be aware it is a very natural walk and not for those impeded in any way, however, there is a flat walk around the lakes you can go on also.
After our walk, it was back to the cafe to replenish our energy with coffee and cake. We both enjoyed the visit

We went to the Falls after lunch and needed all afternoon and strong shoes, to climb up to the top and also see the victorian ferns in a valley next to the falls. Don't miss where the falls were increased in height to make work for ex miners and provide a leat for fresh water for locals in the valley.
The lunch menu looked very interesting - particularly the specials. We had a cream tea when we came down and it was delicious.

We stumbled upon the Canonteign Falls, after the Becky Falls car park was completely full and we left in disgust and went exploring. It's a gorgeous place that we will re-visit. The walk up to the falls was energetic and rewarding and the falls themselves spectacular, constructed when Silver was mined here 200 years ago. We stopped for our sandwiches and a drink at the fern garden and made a dam. The little "leat" and bridge at the top was good for a game of pooh-sticks, the kids absoluterly loved the outing. There are beautiful lakes and gardens and a play area, excellent café and gift shop. It's a family venture, a labour of love, well worth supporting. Masses of space and a great day out.
