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.

We visited on Sunday 27th, parked the car and set off following the signs, we had to walk up the track which was fine because the view from the top gate was amazing,we made it to the glen, got a brilliant welcome from Sarah who explained all to us. We donned the wellies supplied and set off round the magical... More

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

It's a bit of a trek but so beautiful along the way up. The waterfall is magical, a truly spiritual place that makes it worth the walk. I have ME and my friend has a bad back. So we were exhausted... Sarah who manages the gift shop and tea room at the top offered to drive us back to the... More

By no means a leisurely walk up to the top of the trail, especially on the wet autumnal leaves but was well worth it. You can walk right up to the waterfall if you have wellies on. Would certainly recommend if you are local. Would be a crime not to follow this with a trip to Charlie's cafe in Tintagel... More

Well this was amazing it was worth every penny and the walk from the car park. We get there and it was just so pretty and beautiful to see it and even on the way walking along the stream. Would highly recommend this to anyone!

Visited with my family during half term and found St Nectans Glen quite an expensive place to visit, although I appreciate that it's privately owned. We got to the main waterfall and found a group of women who had stripped off down to their swimsuits to stand under the waterfall (each to their own but not quite what we were... More

We enjoyed a beautiful afternoon walking through the woods up to the waterfall. The forest was beautiful, the views of the woods and cascading stream were wonderful. Just a small warning though as the trip to the top to get to the waterfall can be a little hard work as some of the stepping points were high/deep which was tiring...... More
