Upcoming events

A hidden gem

Situated within Dartmoor National Park in the heart of Devon’s Teign Valley, natural and manmade waterfalls tumble down ancient rock formations to meet the tranquil lakes below, offering some of the most spectacular waterfall and woodland scenery in Devon.

A breathtaking sight, described by one visitor as “one of the most idyllic places on earth”, wildlife thrives in the peace and tranquillity that makes the Falls a haven for both adults and children alike.  Mossy pathways lead you on three scenic walks catering for all ages and abilities, whilst our Victorian Fern Garden and the Secret Garden are fascinating places to learn about history, geology, plant life and trees.

If you're wondering where to go or looking for places to visit and things to do in Devon or you enjoy walking on Dartmoor and discovering new places of interest, Canonteign Falls is a hidden gem and one of the most idyllic places to see and explore with children.  Perfect for outdoor adventure, our children's play area with our 30m zip wire, new wooden play galleon, trampolines and children’s mini assault course will keep the children entertained, whilst our 'Home Farm' cafe serving locally sourced, home made food, and the wondeful new range of gifts in our Gift Shop will ensure that your every need is catered for.

One of those truly magical places to visit, don't just take our word for it - follow us on Facebook and Twitter and hear what our visitors say about us, and come for a day out to see for yourself!
