Lydford Gorge

The combination of geology, water and climate change has created the deepest river gorge in the south west providing a truly breathtaking experience which has been enjoyed since Victorian times.

The steep sided wooded gorge hidden on the western fringe of Dartmoor has many myths and legends including the 30-metre Whitelady waterfall and the turbulent pot hole called the Devilís Cauldron.

You can explore the gorge with a choice of adventurous walks from one to three miles. Throughout the seasons there is an abundance of wildlife and plants to see, from woodland birds to wild garlic in the spring and fungi in the autumn.

There are car parks and tea-rooms at either end of the gorge. The shop sells a range of outdoor clothing, books and walking boots as well as delicious local food.

There are a range of events throughout the year.

Picnic and childrenís play area. Dogs accepted on leads. Note: Strenuous walking, rugged terrain and vertical drops
