A Trip to Golitha Falls

Last week I took a little drive to Golitha Falls, an hour’s drive or so away. It’s not a big waterfall, but a series of tiny dinky little waterfalls. And I use the word “waterfall” lightly.

Here are some photos from my trip.

    That looks very peaceful and lovely. I would have likely sat down with a book and not moved for several hours. πŸ™‚

      It was peaceful, and I only saw a couple of other people the whole time I was there. I didn’t take a book this time, but it was my first time there and I’m always a bit nervous when I drive somewhere alone for the first time.

      It was lovely, though! I only even heard about the place a couple of months ago and it’s almost on my doorstep.

      It is. Now I know where it is I’ll plan a bit better next time, proper walking shoes and so on.

    How lovely. Looks like a good foot-dipping stream πŸ™‚ If it isn’t already too cold. It snowed in Canada already. I’m worried we are next.

      It was quite a warm day – a bit of a last-minute summer – so I doubt the water was all that cold.

    Looks like a poet paradise.

    What a glorious place. It would be a perfect place to set up a tent for a week or so. You could write some great stories there πŸ™‚

      It would be a lovely quiet place to camp out!

    So peaceful looking. I love the sound those sorts of streams make.


    • September 10, 2014 at 9:27 am

      There was all sorts of gurgling and rushing water sounds.

    it looks like a wonderful place to spend a day and the water seems to fresh and clean. got fishes or stream critters in there? πŸ™‚


    • September 10, 2014 at 9:28 am

      It mentioned somewhere that there was fishing there. I saw a couple of ripples from fish jumping as well.

    Ali, It looks like the kind of stream to go wading in. I agree with the other comments. I looks lovely and very peaceful. I could almost heat the birds singing and the water gurgling. It looks so clean and well landscaped. πŸ™‚ —Susan

      It is the sort of place where you could just sit there with your feet in the water, eating a picnic maybe.

    Often the best places to visit are only round the corner! It looks lovely, my kind of place that πŸ™‚

      Living in Cornwall it’s surprising the number of places which are “just around the corner”! I often just think “cliffs” or “beaches” but there’s plenty of moorland as well I tend to forget about.

    A lovely place to visit. I would not be surprised if this would become a favourite of yours


    • September 11, 2014 at 11:56 am

      It could well. It’s a bit of a drive, but worth it.

    Beautiful. Die for hiking or camping site. What. You didn’t take food? I always take snacks.


    • September 11, 2014 at 7:41 pm

      I’m not much of a snacker to be honest. It was a bit of an exploratory mission as well – I wasn’t sure if I was even going to be able to find the place!

    How incredible! Quiet paths with water nearby are my favorite places to wander around! Can’t beat that!!

      That’s high on my list of favourites too! You can’t beat the bubble of a little stream (the River Fowey actually, in this case).
