Wow - didn't know this place existed. Well worth the walk from the car park to this magical location with a beautiful walk through woodlands. I would definitely visit here again and spend more time taking advantage of the tearoom and shop

The most beautiful place to visit, the walk through the woods is spectacular. The tea shop is wonderful with a shop and ancient chapel with all the history. Very spiritual and my favorite place.

Nice touch was free wellies boots to paddle in the water so you can get... More

Mum and I visited on a sunny February day. The walk from the car park through the woods took about half an hour. We had sturdy boots on, which were needed as it was muddy and quite up and down, but the paths were well maintained. We really enjoyed the walk down to the waterfalls. Wellies were provided so we...

Totally beautiful walk by the river and up the stairs to see the waterfall, just Magical. You can walk some way on the level but would not be ideal for people with walking issues or buggies as is steep and has steps. Very beautiful well worth the visits, dogs welcome.

We had a day trip from Bristol to St Nectans and Boscastle. It was our first time to St Nectans and I have to say I is a truly magical place. The staff at the cafe were extremely helpful and really friendly. We will definitely be back
