  • Turned up and parked Sunday 23rd only to find out from adjacent car that the gorge was closed due to anticipated high winds??? Nanny state gone mad or compensation culture worries. Quite ridiculous, are there not trees at most national trust properties? Why not close them all on windy days! Get real please.
  • Lydford Gorge is an excellent stop off on the way to (and from) Cornwall. There's the option to do different sections of the gorge and waterfall and you can drive between the two main attractions. Both parking points have a cafe, which while expensive have a good selection. The lower parking (devil's cauldron) also has a shop selling the normal NT goods and postcards. The area is beautiful and a great place to take photos and go for a good walk. In winter or heavy rain it's probably worth taking walking boots and phoning ahead to make sure it's open (it has flooded in the past).
  • This is an amazing national trust spot. Really cool walk with beatific but steep paths along the gorge sides to a most spectacular waterfall then back and into some of the coolest caverns and pools. Beautiful wildlife spot. Awesome.
  • If you are in the area, you CANNOT MISS this place. Everything about it, from being greeted by a very lovely lady by the Waterfall entrance, to the walk around the gorge and the tea stop at the other end, it is an adventure. The walk itself... is just stunning. It feels like entering a wonderland. All natural, with no safety lines apart from a few metal handrails on wet rocks and a few woodden bridges to get through the water, it is a paradise for nature lovers. Remember to bring some shows with a grip, though, as you might slip otherwise!
  • Really friendly staff and lovely little tea rooms. Had a cream tea which before going in, was very generous and delicious. Lovely to walk around the gorge, takes about one and half hours.
