Romantic walk along Lydford Gorge which was beautiful even in the rain. We wore wellies which were essential in this weather. Great day out with loads to see and explore. Staff were friendly and the facilities good.

We stopped at Lydford Gorge for a quick hike on our way home and were amazed at the beauty of the valley and the waterfall. Unfortunately as we were there "off-season" and later in the day, some of the hiking trails were closed, but we...More
