FOLLY GOOD SHOW
Canonteign Falls is a magnificent example of a Victorian folly set in a magical natural paradise and home to England’s highest manmade waterfall which descends for over 70m through ancient ferns and moss covered rocks finally opening out to lakes and meadows. There are seven lakes, including the Lily Lake and Swan Lake, and the Fern Garden has been restored to its former glory with many species the Victorians would have recognised.
There’s a Secret Garden dominated by a massive Scots Pine and a bridge at Devil’s Leap with spectacular views.
Art is scattered throughout the gardens – look out for wire fairies, willow herons, deer and hares and the large T Rex. Canonteign Falls is a popular spot for artists and photographers.
