It's good for family outings unless you are disabled. There are huge boulders to climb over and a small animal park for children.

It's decades since I visited Becky Falls so it was time to renew my acquaintance with this lovely valley in Dartmoor. It's advance bookings only at the moment due to covid restrictions but booking and paying online was quick and trouble-free. There is free parking on site, too. The waterfall here is the central part of the attraction and is absolutely stunning, falling from a height of 20 to 30 metres down to a jumble of huge granite rocks and boulders. There are several routes you can take on a walk around the falls, from an easy walk to more challenging routes that involve scrambling over boulders. For all walks sensible footwear is a must and I would recommend walking boots for the most challenging option. Becky Falls also offers a display of animals, including goats, meer cats, owls in the main complex and a short walk away there is an indoor animal house with reptiles. This is a bit hidden away but it's worth the effort to look for it. There's a gift shop, but I found this a little under stocked to be honest. The cafe is excellent with a small but good menu of classics, such as pasty, burgers, chips, a packed lunch for the children and a range of drinks. A big thank you to the lady in the cafe who kindly provided a cool pack for my wife who was suffering from a bout of arthritis at the time. Much appreciated. All in all this is a must-see and the drive across Dartmoor to Becky Falls is all part of the experience.

Visited this awesome place of tranquillity on my birthday, A little mini zoo before walking down to see the spectacular view of the waterfall. There are many places to sit on the big rocks and enjoy the waterfall and the tickling stream running past. Some points can get tricky to walk the further down you go.

We enjoyed our visit and felt we made the most of what was on offer. We completed the three walking trails and enjoyed the falls; we met the animals and had lunch in the cafe. It is a great spot but I would agree with other reviewers, a little over priced. We completed everything, including lunch in just over two hours and lunch was the most over priced aspect - £7 for a panini! When I was asked if I would like Mayo, I thought I was going to get a salad, but no, just a panini - it was nice but pricey.
