Although a bit of a longer walk than it seems from the car park the waterfall that you can walk up to was pretty cool and worth the climb in the end. Very pretty and fairy tale like I can imagine it would be very...More

Magical place, wellies supplied to paddle in the water to find one of the 3 waterfalls. The cafe above the trees was unexpectedly modern and beautiful. Menu is fantastic and Diane served us with humour and was very knowledgeable.

This was our second visit having visited for the first time at Easter of this year. The woodland walk to the glen is lovely, so peaceful and tranquil. The new Restaurant/Tearoom and Ice Cream Parlour is a great new addition. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting outside...More

It's a long walk to get there, and very steep in places. Once you get there, it's a few waterfalls in a peaceful verdant setting.

St Nectan's Glen is situated between Tintagel and Boscastle and is well worth a visit. The walk, although quite challenging in places, is wonderful, and culminates in a beautiful waterfall. At the end of the walk there are steps up to a café and shop...More

The walk to get here goes through magical ancient woodland following a winding stream up to the visitor centre. The fee to visit the waterfalls is worth it. They are beautiful and well kept. The people at the visitor centre are lovely and lend you...More

Watch out for the mile-long walk through boggy (but beautiful!) woodland to get there, but definitely worth the effort. Peaceful, beautiful, wonderful little place tucked away in a special part of Cornwall.

Drive from Tintagel to Boscastle (and vice versa) on the coast road (B3263). Park in the free car park situated just off the road in Trethevy. It's a small car park and easy to pass by. From Tintagel the car park is on... More
