The Ups and Downs of Lydford Gorge

Lydford Gorge


Lydford Gorge is a stunning walk taking in Devon’s highest waterfall ‘The white lady’ and the impressive Devils Cauldron where water gushes through a chasm at a very fast rate.


This place is a hidden gem – crystal clear waters & lovely, lush surroundings. A marvellous way to spend an afternoon … some splendid views of trees and streams as you weave your way through the first part of the walk, you then descend into the Gorge to stand at the base of the White Lady waterfall. We took our shoes and socks off and paddled in the cold clear water, which was very relaxing. You then follow the river through the Gorge to the Devils Cauldron, the Gorge gets really deep and the path is narrow and can be slippery at times. But, It is great fun.


Tip: Wear sturdy shoes
