We visited here and walked the lower red route. We loved it especially the Boulder Clamber! You need good shoes and to have good mobility although there is another upper red route which avoids the boulders. The blue route is easier but you don't get to see the falls and the purple route is for fit serious adventurers. All the... More

This is a really beautiful place, rugged and natural yet maintained well and sensitively. We had a lovely couple of hours here with our dog and I would recommend it. Not a 'cheap' morning out but it's being run as a family business (by all accounts) and people should expect to pay for a quality tourism experience which is enhanced... More

We had a morning set aside to visit this area of the moors before driving back to London. We arrived at what we thought was the car park for the falls to be greeted by an attendant with a credit card machine demanding a very large payment before we could proceed. We explained that we just wanted 10 minutes for... More

This review is factually incorrect and has been reported to TripAdvisor. Becky Falls is a 50 acre estate in which the waterfall is situated. The whole estate is privately owned and there is no way of gaining free access to the waterfall. More

Made a video of our trip youtu.be/lsx-O56joA0 (copy and paste into browser) .Really enjoyable walk around this area of outstanding natural beauty. Walked the purple trail. I wouldn't recommend this unless you are reasonably fit.

The place is very beautiful. We reach around afternoon time. There is small zoo here where you can see few animals. The entry fee is very minimal for this attraction and having nice trail to follow to the waterfall. Must visit if you are going to devon side

Not everyone's cup of tea,nice walks through the woods and making your way to the top of the waterfall,nice walks around the grounds if you can't manage the steep climb to the waterfall.

Becky falls is the most amazing place I had ever been to and seen. I love to look at the wild bird the thing I absolutely love was the long long walks over rocks and bridges and water. The people in the cafe were so friendly food was nice and the man at the welcome gate was friendly free parking... More

Becky Falls is a natural wonder which unfortunately doesn't live up to expectations. The entrance fee of £8.25 should be enough to manage the site efficiently. Some of the handrails and steps on the trails are in a bad state of repair and should be repaired or removed. You expect rough terrain at a place like this but safety rails... More

Since September 2016 Becky Falls has been under new ownership. We have noted that there is maintenance required. However I would like to make it clear that none of the steps or handrails were 'unsafe'. The park is now closed for the season and by the time we reopen in February 2017 our maintenance programme will have been completed. More

We decided to do the Red part of the trail that called for a steep descent down to the main falls, clambering across boulders as we went, then we took the longer route past the Money Tree and then onto the Purple trail in which a 200ft demanding climb up from the lower falls was required. The Red and Purple... More

Visited Becky Falls this weekend and even though it was raining it was still a lovely day out. We had £1.50 off per person vouchers and the dog was allowed in for free. We did the red route and 3 of us did the boulder clamber which was good fun (although very slippy in the rain) but seeing as you... More
