Welcome to Canonteign Falls

Home to England’s highest waterfall, Canonteign Falls is a magnificent example of a Victorian folly set in a magical natural paradise.  The waterfalls themselves descend a staggering 70m making this one of the most breathtaking attractions in Devon and providing a wonderful day out for all the family.

Water rushing over Canonteign falls in Devon

Situated within Dartmoor National Park in the heart of Devon’s Teign Valley, the 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.  Mossy pathways take 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 plant life and trees.
