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

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.

My husband and me visited this hidden gem. Beautiful woods and streams create a perfect magical atmosphere... you feel peace and tranquility all around, and the waterfalls really outstanding. Don’t miss the St Piran church, small but full of character. Highly recommended and can’t wait...More

Enjoyed the nice walk to the falls and the falls very beautiful. Bit pricey though I though for a 10 minute walk to loom at the falls. We paid nearly £18 for 4 to look at a natural water fall! However the free wellies were...More
