“Overpriced”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Nice for the kids but overpriced for what you get, especially when you have Watersmeet right on your doorstep for free

“Behold the awesome power of water.... Etc etc”
Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

Spooky little "exhibition" in a church hall, industrial water jets, lots of painted signs stuck on things, steep paths, big trees and an amazing waterfall. Was ace.

“Lovely”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Nice walk into the gorge, although steep in places.
The museum room could do with a bit of an upgrade as some of the interactive exhibits didnt work.

“Ok for a Fiver!”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

This gorge is lovely, but it isn't my first so perhaps I was being too judgemental! The paths are steep going but if you take it slow you will be fine - keep kids close by at all times, as there are no railings. Leafy trees overhead make it pleasant, but when I went it was rainy and damp. The waterspouts are fun, and the gorge is peaceful - take a picnic if its a sunny day!

“Wonderful walk”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

Great for a morning walk and picnic, very interesting too and beautiful scenery. Recommend when weather is nice, interesting history of Lynmouth to learn about (flood 1952) but mainly enjoyed the environment, very peaceful.
