Canonteign Falls Dartmoor UK

We were most impressed with our visit to this truly beautiful spot. There is so much more to do on the estate than just see England’s highest waterfall.  It is in a lovely setting with surrounding meadows and lakes to walk around and lots of places to have a picnic. The meadows are filled with gorgeous flowers and there is of plenty of wildlife to be seen around the ponds and lakes.  

When you get the entrance there is also the chance to hire a carrier for your little ones, as the track up to the top of the falls is not buggy or wheelchair accessible. The carriers are also equipped with sun shades, perfect for a hotter day. Its a nice climb up to the top with many great view points. When you reach the top, the buzzards view point is stunning and well worth the 400ft climb.  

There are also lots of parks and activities to keep the children busy including a zip wire and trampolines. There is also a nice cafe next to the shop and entrance.  We only visited here for a couple of hours but we could have definately made a whole day of it.  A great little adventure, and a lovely family achievement when you have made it up to the top of the waterfall together.

Lots more details of prices and opening times can be found on the website.
