Lovely river and waterfalls. Had great fun. Beautiful and peaceful place for dog-walking and getting away from it all.

We have walked here as family, with and without dogs, for many years. The management of the whole area is positive, discreet and succesful. The woodland walks have not been sanitised - nor has H & S gone mad. For those who like tranquility and a river getting on with its own affairs, I heartily recommend a visit to Golitha.

Delightful stroll along the river & falls in the woods & amongst the bluebells. Amazed to find it all free of charge, even the parking! Unfortunately the Tripadvisor location was incorrect, but thanks to Google maps it was found about 6 miles away.

Been there in the first week of May and although it was not a sunny day we could still enjoy the colours of the flowers and the diiferent hues of the river bed. This is not a water fall as we are used to but a long stretch of river with instances of higher rock formations that form a water... More

It may not have a large single waterfall, nor was the weather the best (drizzle and downpours all weekend), but it is just so beautiful and such a peaceful walk that none of it matters. Just park and walk! We started by climbing the large hill, which we weren't prepared for, then descend into a lagoon like world. We ended... More

We walked from Siblyback lake to Golitha, on a gorgeous summer day. The trek to the falls kept the kids occupied along the riverbank. This location is a must for a countryside walk with the family or the dog. Don't expect the Niagra but the actual falls were disappointing.

We recently visited Golitha Falls when we were staying in the area. Really, really enjoyed the walk especially at this time of year as the woods are full of bluebells and the beech trees are a beautiful spring green. You need to wear reasonable footwear as the ground is quite uneven (lots of tree roots sticking up) and some of... More

Golitha Falls is a very attractive gentle walking area through ancient woodland along the banks of the river Fowey. It is a good area for the study of native trees together with interesting wildlife, when observed especially early on a bright, Spring morning. The car park is uninviting and the toilets are always locked, which were the downsides of this... More

This place is a truly beautiful place to visit. With the stream and the walks any member of the family would enjoy the visit from the rambler to the codger. The only down side is wheelchair access is only limited to the stream area
