Canonteign Falls and Country Park

Canonteign Falls is the highest waterfall in England and is situated in the beautiful Teign Valley. Steeped in a fascinating silver mining history, the Falls were created in 1890 when the 3rd Lady Exmouth, to keep the redundant miners in Devon employed, used them to divert the water over the high outcrop of rocks thus starting the landscaping of the estate.

The Falls descend almost vertically for 220ft (67m) and run on through rock formations and ancient woodlands before cascading into tranquil lakes below.
Canonteign Falls offers a spectacular day out for all the family, with nature and wildlife trails, walks through woodland, wetlands, lakes and parkland and extensive play areas for children. Other facilities include a cafe and gift shop.
