We are closed from Saturday 21st March in response to mandatory Government Guidelines and to minimise the spread of the Coronavirus.


With heavy hearts we have made the decision this morning to close Canonteign Falls from 2pm today for the foreseeable future in response to Government mandatory orders and to minimise the spread of Covid-19.  We’re very lucky to have a wonderfully supportive and amazing team here and an incredible visitor base who have continued to support us during this time of uncertainty.  We will navigate through this time but at the moment our primary concern is to flatten the curve and minimise the spread of this virus.  So we will remain closed until it is safe for our team to come back to work and for visitors to return.  If you have any questions please do email [email protected] and he will happily help you.  We will keep everyone updated via our website and social media platforms.  Canonteign Falls is committed to supporting their staff and given the recent Government announcements, we will not be making any redundancies.  Stay safe and healthy everyone and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.


An award-winning tourist attraction nestled in the Teign Valley on the edge of Dartmoor.

Set in 90 acres of park and woodland, Canonteign is a must-see for Devon visitors, with walks and activities for all ages and abilities. From a gentle stroll around the lakes where ducks and our black swans await, to a bracing stomp through spectacular woods up to the top of the Falls, our beautiful corner of the countryside is perfect for enjoying the fresh air and having fun with the family.

90 original Victorian steps lead up through the Victorian fern garden to the top of the Falls itself, with soaring panoramic views available from many vantage points. Children can play safely in two different areas where a zip wire, pirate ship and trampolines await. Canonteign Kitchen  serves exceptional, locally-sourced food and drinks. New for this season weekend breakfasts available from 8.30am – 11.30am and Sunday lunch 12 – 3.30pm. So whether you want to soak up the sun on our terrace or hire a back-pack to take the little ones on a woodland adventure, we invite you to have a wonderful day with us. Finish the day with a  browse in our charming gift shop.  Entry to the Cafe and gift shop is free.  We welcome dogs on leads both inside and out.

Myself, my husband, 2 kids and grandparents visited here whilst on holiday in the area.

We all absolutely loved it, was great value for money and the kids loved the fairy walk and the addition of the T Rex dinosaur was a hit with my son.

We went at lunchtime and stayed for about 3.5 hours. Beautiful walks, views from the top are gorgeous – lovely cafe on site and local ice cream. Playground also for the kids at the end. Great way to spend an afternoon and a must see attraction if you’re visiting the area.

What a stunning place! The walk through the woods to the waterfall is magical and the view from the top is spectacular.

Ruby’s coffee in the cafe is excellent – and a great accompaniment to the home-baked cakes.

We will be going again!
