It was open this time and is a superb walk, with different routes, lots of wildlife including fish to spot. Nice cafe at the end.

Have visited Lydford Gorge before so was prepared with sensible walking boots/shoes. It was a warm day and even though it was shady walking by the water it was very hot and humid. Lots of steps up and down and a few narrow walk ways,...More
