Spent a lovely few hours here. We loved the fact that you could take a walk up to the top of the waterfall, and the views from the top were stunning. Luckily we went on a very quiet day, so felt we had the place...More

I found myself popping into Canonteign Falls cafe for a warm drink. Ruby, the young lady serving, suggested trying their Halloween hot chocolate. It was just what I needed. Thankyou as always for such a friendly service.
