St Nectans Glen is a 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.
St Nectans Glen is a place where animals and birds play amid a mysticism of fairies, piskies* and spirits, serenaded by the wonderful sound of bird song. The area has been appointed a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) due to rare specimens of plants. Once at the hermitage enjoy a well deserved cream tea or coffee, visit our shop & gallery for gifts to take home and visit the meditation room for a time of self reflection.
Finally wonder down to the Waterfall and experience one of Cornwall’s hidden treasures, one of natures beauties unspoilt by man. Whether your on a pilgrimage or a day out the reward is in natures embrace.
* Piskie also known as a Pixie in other West Country counties.
