Canonteign Falls

Canonteign Falls is a stunning natural attraction in the heart of Devon.   You’ll find playgrounds, trails and hidden surprises for family fun across 90 acres of parkland.  Yet if you’re looking for peace, you’ll find that too - among our waterfalls and lakes, ancient meadows and woodland.  Escape the crowds and experience the highest waterfall in Dartmoor National Park.  

For garden lovers, The Victorian Fern Garden, awarded Plant Heritage National Collection status in 2022,  is an historic snapshot of the 19th Century craze for ferns and fairies.   Climb up through ancient woodland via the original 90 steps into a magical landscape before carrying on to view the Falls themselves and see the panorama of the Devon countryside at your feet. Finally, return down to the Lakes and explore all seven as they meander across the meadows, providing habitats for a profusion of wildlife.

Canonteign gives children the opportunity to discover nature at its best and parents a place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Explore the adventure playgrounds, complete with trampolines, wooden galleon, zip wire and mini assault course. Children adore the challenge of the steps up to the Falls, spotting our resident fairies and willow animals, including Terence the T-Rex, along the way.

With a bee garden, Roald Dahl-inspired living “green ship”, poets’ corner, standing stones and 90 acres of ancient meadows and woodland, you’ll find plenty of quiet spots to make your own. Finish the day with a  browse in our award-winning gift shop.  We are dog friendly inside and out!   Book tickets online at
