  • What a truly special place this is! Especially for a marriage proposal! The walk up to the waterfalls is very beautiful and you feel like you are somewhere far far away. Upon arrival the young blonde lady (sorry we didn’t catch the name) in the gift shop gave us a very warm welcome and told us about the place. We were the first people to arrive so it was very peaceful. The facilities were great and we purchased two lovely necklaces from the shop. To my surprise my boyfriend proposed to me in front of the waterfalls and the staff at St Nectar's Glen gave us a huge congratulations and they very kindly gave us a complimentary drink each. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this place to anyone thinking of visiting – the staff, the facilities and the beautiful setting were excellent!
  • Lovely walk down to the waterfall along the river with pretty bridges and pathways through the trees. Narrows down to a single track up to the gift shop, cafe and entrance to the waterfall which you pay to visit. Great for a family day out in the heart of Tintagel, Cornwall .. remember to take your wellies!
  • St Nectan's Glen is a beautiful place worth a visit. My wife and I have been going there at least once a year for the last 30 years. Now we visit every month. True it has changed over the years and the hermitage is now growing to accommodate more activity. The new walkway to allow access to previously unvisited waterfalls is excellent. It is a place of serenity, magic and beauty and should be treated as such. If I have one request of visitors it is to be quiet. Noise disturbs the spirit of the place. Sarah and the other staff there are fantastic, helpful, accommodating of people and so welcoming. A visit there is like visiting family. Please do so with respect for nature and the spirit of the fall. Enjoy yourself and leave feeling rejuvenated and with a vow to return
  • This place was Amazing, and a really great experience that surpassed our expectations. Would be fun for kids as well as adults, and there's a fantastic new place to eat when you arrive which has just opened, and all the staff at both the restaurant and in the shop just couldn't have been more lovely. Thankyou for a great afternoon!
  • Gotta be honest I was a little miffed they were charging to see a waterfall but when we got there it was well justified. They walkway down is very steep but would have been dangerous without their path and the cafe at the top and whole atmosphere of the place was so calming and peaceful. We went on a warm day and took the shorter path. To actually see the waterfall you have to walk through the water which was very cooling but possibly not practical in bad weather. Staff were all lovely and very friendly.
