Canonteign Falls, Bovey Tracey, Dartmoor National Park

On the eastern border of Dartmoor National Park, Canonteign Falls is a popular family day out.

Promoted as 'England's highest waterfall', there's a super circular walk up to 'Buzzards View', the high ground from which the water falls into the valley below. The views from here across the Teign Valley are superb. The circular walk continues down through beautiful woods to the lake where you'll find a good cafe and gift shop.

There's a children's play section and plenty of open grassy areas.

Near Canonteign Falls, we'd recommend the Tottiford, Trenchford & Kennick Reservoirs Circular Walk. Bovey Tracey is to the south and Moretonhampstead to the north west. Haldon Forest, Exeter and The English Riviera are all within easy reach.

This part of Dartmoor is lush and green and a far cry from the bleak, wet Dartmoor stereotype.
