Staying at the jamaica inn in January we went for a drive over bodmin moor and followed signs for different places,St noets for one (worrying steep hill with ice on the way in). Found signs for goliath falls (never heard of before) and the area when we got there was so lovely and peaceful we decided to do the 20min... More

Perfect for a stroll with tranquil picturesque surroundings, if you take the dog like me, would strongly advise an extendable lead as the water can be very fast flowing in places.....and it's all downhill.

We enjoyed a peaceful walk along the river, dotted with trees, watching birds skim the water. It was a lovely walk, but when the river quickened pace to flow downhill, we found the paths had been badly eroded by flooding, and the only way we could find to view the falls was to balance precariously on a narrow rock ledge...

I am fortunate to have Golitha Falls on my doorstep and visit almost every day with my dogs . Whilst I have no problems walking the whole site, it would be impossible for disabled people like my husband as the paths quickly turn to very uneven bumpy tracks with many tree roots to trip on ! The falls themselves are... More

We came across the location just by chance as we were driving around. It is a secluded woodland location and although it is a small attraction, it's a nice walk and perfect for a little bit of exercise.

A very beautiful spot, particularly on a fine summers day. Cross the Dreynes Bridge and there is a car-park with toilets, to park. The River Fowey meanders down to the Golitha Falls about a mile and the latter is an impressive torrent of water cascading over boulders. The ancient Broad Leaf forest is scenic with some prepared walks. Excellent for... More

It isn't Niagara falls, but it is secluded and beautiful. A pleasant walk in and a real natural wonder. On a hot day a real cool place to go.
