I have a problem with this place, well two really. First of all - there is a lengthy walk in - partly along a private residential street and then later in the Glen. For many visitors - less able oldies and families with young kids - I would say this is a no, no. When you actually get into the... More

We took a walk from Tintagel town centre to St Nectans Glen one afternoon. It's a gorgeous walk through the Glen. Nothing to strenuous so if you're not a confident walker it's still do-able. Cute little tea/gift shop just before the "magical waterfall" which was manned by two very welcoming and friendly ladies. £3.95 per adult to gain access to... More

The walk from the car park through the glen is beautiful, indeed there are many beautiful walks around the area. We paid the charge in the girft shop/coffee shop and had a quick cuppa (very good and friendly staff) before we walked on the new path that has been built to look at the waterfalls. We were lucky as it... More

It was a beautiful and serene walk to the woodlands of St Nectan's Glen, we visited Christmas Eve, as we walked by the woodlands the mystical gurgles of the water, gentle rustling of the plants can be heard with the mild winter breeze, robins and others birds singing. They have a cafe where they serve lovely and gallery where they... More

At St Nectan's Glen the Waterfall and Kieve are truly magical but now there is so much more to embrace. Access has been created to the other beautiful waterfalls on this devic area of Cornwall. A must visit.

As our visit was in November on a wet weekday, there were only 6 other people there so we were able to appreciate the fairytale atmosphere. The lady on the till couldn't have been more friendly and a coffee and cake after our tour was brought out to us as we cowered from yet more rain under the gazebo. Well... More
