Guided Walks and History Tour


*NEW* South West’s  Highest Waterfall, Guided Walk and History Tour. Every Thursday and Sunday at 11.30 am . 

Discover the history behind the highest waterfall in the South West.

This guided walk takes you on a journey of discovery up 90 Victorian Steps into our magical Victorian Fern Garden and onwards to the top of Lady Exmouth Waterfalls, where the panorama of the Devon countryside is at your feet. Throughout the walk, our experienced tour guide will take you through over 200 years of English history, from the estate’s ownership, its mining heritage, and the Victorian love of plant collecting and garden design on an epic scale.

The guided walk will take approximately 1.5 hours and runs every Thursday and Sunday at £15.50 per person or include a cream tea for £21 per person.

The ticket price includes full-day admission to the estate, allowing you to make a day of it and explore the entire 90 acres at your leisure.

Dogs are welcome on leads.

Requirements and Accessibility: Please note that a certain level of fitness is required to walk the waterfall walk. The steps to the Fern garden are steep and uneven. 

Sturdy walking shoes are required, along with weather-appropriate clothing.

We welcome walking poles.

Today my wife and I took the guided tour through the woodland and Fern gardens to the Waterfalls. Accompanied by the excellent and knowledgeable local guide, Janet gave a charming and informative tour of the beautifully kept grounds. A great place for families, lots to do for the kids and dog friendly, it seems there’s more layers to this venue than at first appear on the website or brochure. Great facilities, beautiful gift shop and tea rooms. We ended up spending about three hours on the site and didn’t get to see all of it. Will definitely do a return visit when next in the area.”
