Beautiful place to visit
May 2021 • Couples
My husband and I visited Canonteign Falls for the first time. We had a lovely time walking up to the falls and enjoying the views. Had an ice cream by the lake. What a beautiful part of the world! Staff were helpful and polite. My only comment would be to have more staff on at busy times to reduce queuing times for ice creams.

Great day out exploring!
Jun 2021 • Family
What a absolute gem of a place! We really enjoyed our visit today. Staff was really helpful and kind when we arrived pointing out where to find what and where to start the walk up to the falls. The walk up to the falls are steep, but it's shaded, a lot of benches to rest and marvel at on your way to the top. I really enjoyed reading the information boards along the way. The fairies and dinosaur made it magical for our 3yr old. We had a little picnic at the bottom by the lakes while our little one played on the boat play area. We bought some ice creams and coffees at the café and sat outside on the benches over looking the lakes. Clean bathrooms and nappy changing facilities as well. Big car park with a lot of shade. Make sure you wear suitable footwear when visiting.

Simply stunning
May 2021 • Couples
Such a beautiful place! We loved clambering up to the top of the falls with our dog and then taking a leisurely stroll around the lakes afterwards (although nothing is leisurely with our dog haha).

We had a drink and some cake in the safe afterwards and it was lovely. Absolutely recommending too all our friends who visit !

Hard work but worth it
Jun 2021
The walk up to the top of the waterfall is hard work for young kids, but was worth it and a great experience. The play grounds and picnic areas were also very nice and it was a great way to spend the morning.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us we really appreciate it. The walk to the top of the waterfalls is steep but as you say the views are well worth the effort! We also have a more gentle walk around Lily Lake and five lower lakes which are over much more gentle terrain. We are really pleased you had a nice day with us.

Beautiful!
May 2021
What a beautiful place! The climb up to the top of the waterfall was lovely. Benches along the way to sit and take in this beautiful place. The view from the top is amazing.
Had food and drink from the kiosk which was nice. We spent all afternoon exploring. We do wish we had gone in the morning then we could have had all day there. Well worth a visit.

Amazing views!
May 2021 • Couples
Absolutely stunning walk. We were so lucky with the weather, it was a beautiful place. The falls are breath taking when you arrive at the bottom of them. Can’t believe how cheap entry is to this hidden little gem. Staff very helpful and had a lovely cake at the end of our walk. We could have stayed for hours!

What an excellent day out. I took my 3 year old and baby. We hiked to the top, which wasn’t easy but so worth it. The play areas are lovely and the toilets were very clean. I’d highly recommend.

Wet Dog Walk
May 2021 • Couples
A very wet walk, but we dressed for the weather and was so glad we didn’t pass on the opportunity to climb this fall.
Stunning location with beautiful scenery, I can only imagine on a dry, sunny day this place would look even more magical.
The best part about the rain... No one else was there! So a very peaceful leisurely stroll with the dogs.
Didn’t visit the cafe due to covid restrictions and the rain however the bags of fudge from the shop went down a treat once back at our lodge.
