We have again taken advantage of our new National Trust memberships by taking a little trip out to Lydford Gorge. Lydford Gorge is the deepest Gorge in South West England and has an absolutely stunning 30m waterfall. There is a three mile round walk through the woods and along the river however we decided to just take the short walk from the Waterfall Tea-Room to the beautiful White Lady Waterfall.
There are two routes down to the waterfall- short and steep, over 400 steps or long and easy, a sloped winding path. We decided to go for the long and easy route down, the path is not really suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs as the terrain is a little rough but luckily I was carrying our littlest so this wasn’t an issue for us. The views from the path looking through the woods and down to the river were just spectacular.
We had a little bite to eat in the tea-rooms before heading out for our walk. I love that a lot of the National Trust restaurants have crayons, pens and colouring pages to keep the little ones amused whilst you enjoy a slice or two of their delicious cakes.
Along the trail there were a number of handcrafted wooden reindeers, we had great fun trying to find them along the way and Willow particularly enjoying patting this one.
There were hundreds of two pence piece embedded in this carved wooden toadstool.
