St Nectan’s Glen is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Walk to the Waterfall & Hermitage through an ancient woodland with ivy clad trees and along the banks of the River Trevillet as it sparkles and gurgles busily on it’s journey to the sea.
This must be Cornwall’s best-kept secret. Across the main road from the car park in Trethevy, up to the right past the inscribed Roman pillar on the roadside by St. Piran’s, a former monastery, and on past some houses before you start the magical journey through St. Nectan’s Glen. You will enter a different world of deep tranquillity as you make your way along the edge of the river which meanders, sometimes rushing, over moss-covered rocks and pebbles under the most amazing canopy of ancient woodland.
