Opening Times, Parking and Directions



Below is a table showing the up to date opening hours of our beautiful waterfalls, ice cream parlour and gift shop. Please check back on these opening times, as they are subject to change based on footfall and date.

Please note, you will need to allocate 30 mins to walk from the car park to the site.



The local farmers pay and display car park (£3.00 all day, cash only)on the main road has limited capacity. Our peak times are between 12.00 noon to 3.00pm, so you may struggle to find a parking space around and between those times.

The field car park is open for the season, accessible from the pay and display car park.

Please note that you cannot gain access to St Nectan’s Glen through Trevillet Quarry.

Struggling to find space to park? It’s also possible to park in Tintagel Visitor Centre Car Park and catch the number 95 bus to Trethevy, where it stops directly opposite St Pirans Church where the walk to The Glen begins. Alternatively you can walk to the Glen from this car park, which takes approximately 40 minutes. Please see timetable in the link below (Please note times are subject to change):


By Road

From Tintagel to Boscastle (and vice versa), take the coast road, B3263. The independently managed pay and display car park is situated just of the road in Trethevy.

For Sat Nav, please enter the post code PL34 0BE

By Bus

Take the coastal bus service 95 or 96 from Tintagel to Boscastle (and vice versa). Stop off at Trethevy; the trail starts opposite the bus stop. 

From the car park / bus stop to the waterfall

Crossing the main road from the car park in Trethevy, and following it up to the right, you will pass the inscribed Roman pillar on the roadside by St Piran’s (a former Monastery). Walk a little further, past a few private residences on a private tarmacked road, and as you reach the edge of the woodland, here starts the magical journey to a world of tranquillity and abundance. 

As you make your way along the edge of the river, follow the path – without forgetting to pause a while, here and there, and take all the natural beauty deep within your soul and your lungs! – until your reach our gate at the top of the walk; but make sure you have appropriate walking and waterproof footwear.

Please note that you cannot gain access to St Nectan’s Glen through Trevillet Quarry.
