Lovely scenery, well kept, gr8 walks, ideal for kids

Having said all of the above, there are better walks around Devon which are free. As for April 2015 price per adult is 7.75 Pounds.

This is the second time we have been to Becky Falls, both times we have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. My Husband and I are keen walkers, and yes you can walk across Dartmoor and Exmoor for free. Those people who point this out, are totally missing the whole concept of Becky Falls, and I feel the owners are in the awkward... More

In this day and age it is amazing to find somewhere that let's you, in fact encourages you, to climb over rocks and up waterfalls. I was not expecting to have so much fun with my kids. The woodland walks and trails are good on their own, but the opportunity to scramble over boulders around waterfalls is a total winner... More

This is a nice place to get some fresh air, see some of the beautiful surroundings, enjoy a walk around these pretty natural waterfalls. Pick a route thats suited to you and go explore. There is also a very very small petting zoo for the kids (a couple of ponys, rabbits etc) and a little cafe who do a great... More

We visited Becky Falls today with four children of age four and under. The attraction is clean and tidy, but there are one or two worrying things mostly the 'crossing' from the car park to the main attraction. There aren't any road warnings to say that there is a crossing on a blind bend. It would be easy to warn... More

Years ago this was free and natural. Attempts to make it more commercial have limited appeal. There are similar places on the moor that are equally good and unspoiled and free!

Thank you for taking the time to review your visit to us and we're obviously disappointed that you felt unable to give positive feedback. Becky Falls has been open to the public since 1903 and, yes, years ago (in fact over 30 years ago) there was no admission charge, but neither was there a car park, cafe, safe and maintained... More

It truly was a stunning place, hidden off the road and surrounded by untouched wildlife. I visited with my mother who also found the walks and scenery breath taking. Advised wear suitable foot ware as some climbing is involved. Food was lovely and cheap. It really is fun for all the family, mostly outdoors as advised to go when dry.

Thank you for your 5 star review - it's very much appreciated. As you mention, good footwear is pretty essential - trainers etc will suffice, but we're definitely not a place for flip-flops or stilettos! We hope you'll visit again when you're next on Dartmoor. More

If you enjoy waterfalls and nature, you will love this. My son and I went on a cold sunny day in March. He is an agile 29 year old and I am a reasonably fit 60 year old woman. We decided to do the difficult purple route and it was a challenge for me as I had to have help... More
