Been coming to Cornwall for years, only discovered this place this year. Decent walk, nothing to strenuous, up to the water fall. Nice cafe for a drink and a snack after, although service in the cafe was so slow......well worth a visit......pretty unique I think.

A pleasant walk through the woods, but very expensive if you want to see the waterfall.Some people may appreciate the atmosphere but we are not into crystals and goblins!! You need wellies, but there are some there which you can borrow.

It is possible to do the beautiful woodland walk by the river for free and add on a trip to the falls for an extra payment - definitely worth doing all of it! Leaving the car in the clearly indicated car park, there is a...More
