Canonteign Falls

Region: Dartmoor - more
Home to England’s highest waterfall, descending a staggering 220 ft, Canonteign Falls is a breathtaking tourist attraction, and a wonderful day out in Devon for all the family.
Situated within Dartmoor National Park, in the heart of Devon’s Teign Valley, the waterfalls tumble down ancient rock formations to meet the tranquil lakes below, offering some of the most spectacular waterfall and woodland scenery in Devon.

A breathtaking sight, described by one visitor as “one of the most idyllic places on earth ”, wildlife thrives in the peace and tranquillity that makes the Falls a haven for both adults and children. Gentle pathways take you to three scenic walks, suitable for all ages and abilities, and our forest garden and nature trail is a fascinating place to learn about wildlife and conservation techniques.

If you are wondering where to go, and what to see in Devon; or you enjoy a spot of sightseeing and discovering places of interest, Canonteign Falls is a hidden gem and one of the most idyllic places to see and explore in Devon with children. Perfect for outdoor adventure, our children's play area and children’s assault course will keep the little ones happy, and our lakeside restaurant, snack bar and gift shop will ensure that your every need is catered for.

One of those truly magical places to see in Devon, don't just take our word for it - hear what our visitors say about us and come for a day out to see for yourself!
