A very interesting and atmospheric place - and beautiful with the autumn colours - would like to go back in the summer when all the paths are open and explore the whole thing. Well worth a visit!

Visited the gorge today and was quite disappointed. We are NT members so it was free for us, but we had to pay £5 for our student son! It is just a woodland walk really, you couldn’t tell you were in a gorge & any...More

Now this walk won't be suitable for everyone due to the steepness and lack of paths in places. However, we managed it with people aged between 3 and 70 (with limited mobility). The circular walk has 2 different styles. The high side has a recognised...More

We stayed in Lydford as we wanted to visit the Gorge whilst on a short break. We were the first visitors of the day so it was very peaceful. The walk was very atmospheric as it was quite misty in the Gorge. We were kitted...More

The best river walk we have ever done. The scenery is gorgeous and you get to walk right next to the water. I could wax lyrical but to say too much or share too many photos would spoil it for those who haven't been. We...More

Lydford Gorge offers a great experience for all the family. I particularly enjoyed the Devils Cauldron, however it is not accessible for small children and animals. Don't let that put you off the views are still beautiful and the White Lady Waterfall is amazing with...More

Not too far and really worth it. It's truly stunning. As others have said, there is a short route and a longer route. Maps available from the entrance. Very well maintained, but wear footwear with good soles as can be a bit... More
