Lovely place for peaceful walk with the dogs.

Little expensive for the car park but the actual walks were worth it. Our dogs loved the walks around the woods.

First visit to this place, good walks, lovely waterfalls. Take good walking boots/shoes, the purple walk is demanding, the other two are ok. There are meercats, and owls to see, and a few other animals. There is a tearoom, lovely cream tea, and a gift shop. £8.25 for Adults, could be a bit better value.

Thank you for your review we are really pleased you and your dogs enjoyed your time here. I would just like to mention that the fee you pay in the car park to our attendant is not a fee to park your car, it is your entrance fee to the park. This allows us to maintain the park, its amenities,... More

Becky falls is a natural falls in dartmoor national park. The main attraction is the falls itself and the tortuous routes that are there to get to it. There is a kids route which is suitable for children of all ages and abilities. There is a slightly more steep route which is what we took and a more steep and... More

I filled in the end of a day by stopping here and the low falls were worth the visit and the trails in the woods were fun. Young children will like the petting area but overall I was expecting more for the £8+ (more for a family) entry fee. Not a huge amount else to say, baring the trail fencing... More

It's not an inexpensive exercise, however it is a lovely outing with a three different walking options through unspoilt forests. The falls are not massive, but very picturesque The petting zoo is well looked after, and even the adults enjoyed the ponies and pygmy goats. The dining room and gift store are unimaginative, but the cream tea was delicious.

We enjoyed this place. £30 seemed a bit steep for a family of four, but there's enough on offer to warrant the price I'd say. I.e. a couple of walking routes, the ability to clamber over boulders and up the waterfall (good for kids 5+ I'd say) and some animals e.g. meerkats, owls. We spent a fun few hours here.

There are walks of different lengths and degrees of difficulty and its is a great place for children to let off steam and run around. In our party of 120, one adult and one child managed to get very wet, so take a change of clothes, especially for children. Check for discount vouchers as we saved £2

We really enjoyed this day out. Becky Falls is beautiful, a very natural setting and run by nice people. We took two kids and a dog along and we all had a great day. You need a expect a little bit of walking and some minor rock climbing (very tame) to get the best out of it, but it is... More

A delightful Dartmoor spot with pretty good cafe and facilities, clean toilets and a nice petting zoo for children. We were looking for somewhere different to walk the dog and it is great for that. The only down side is entry cost which is a little steep for what it is.

Wonderful setting for photography and enjoying nature - scrambling about - be sure to wear good walking shoot or better still boots. the waterfalls are just lovely, though not accessible for the infirm or those worried about getting muddy. In the sunshine the falls looked amazing and the little animal collection at the end was interesting too.
