I found this little gem by chance and I am glad I did. Walk towards the waterfalls (about 20min) takes you through the antient woodlands full of bluebells this time of the year. There are refreshments, icecream and toilets when you get there. The main...More

This is a seriously lovely area, well worth a visit. Here's what you need to know: Parking is a bit sketchy, so half a star off. A couple of small, rough dirt laybys, if you can't fit in there, park on the verge up the...More

The walk is lovely, as is the waterfall but at nearly £6 per adult just to see the waterfall I thought it was a little expensive for what it is.

WOW!!!!! This place was incredible. We went on a warm spring day. Take plenty of water as the walk up to the top can be a bit strenous. Take your time and stop at the benches provided if it gets a little hard. The walk...More

That’s according to my 7 year old. A wonderful, magical wonderland that soothes your soul as you walk barefoot across the stream. Heaven on earth.

It was hard to get up and down the steps but when you get to the bottom of the waterfall, you realise it's so worth it! Nature at its most beautiful and the sound of water cascading is just delightful. There seems to be too...More

Our second visit here. Will always visit when in Cornwall. The walk from the car park takes about 15 minutes and is not suitable for prams or wheelchair as the steps are steep and slippery

Whatever you’ve heard about St Nectans Glen I can guarantee you it will surpass your expectations tenfold. You park on the main road between Tintagel and Boscastle and head past the little church affording stunning views over the nearby coastline. You turn a corner and...More

All very secure. I agree, buggies not advisable, baby on your back is the only safe option in my opinion. If I were you I’d call the glen, the staff are extremely helpful.
