Came all the way from Scotland to see this sacred Goddess Waterfall. I was moved beyond expectation. It was spiritual, moving and uplifting. So worth the trip!

Had a beautiful day for my visit. and the walk along the glen is just lovely. Becomes challenging at the end to get up to the cafe and waterfalls. A great job being done to make it more accessible without spoiling the natural beauty.

Spent a lovely 2 hours here. We did the 3 waterfalls walk, which ends with the breathtaking main waterfall. Lovely people working there. The aubergine and lime cake was amazing. Felt very sad to leave.

Drive from Tintagel to Boscastle (and vice versa) on the coast road (B3263). Park in the free car park situated just off the road in Trethevy. It's a small car park and easy to pass by. From Tintagel the car park is on... More
