Season (11 Mar 2020 - 2 Nov 2020)

* Due to the nature of our location, in times of heavy rain or high winds it may be necessary to close Canonteign Falls for health and safety reasons. Prior to travelling, we would recommend that you call us (after 10.00am) on 01647 252434 and speak to our receptionist for a daily update.
Dog friendly! Four legged friends are very welcome but need to be on a lead at all times due to the abundance of wildlife in the Falls.
