We mention in our guide - www.treworgeycottages.com/guide - issued on receipt of each new booking, loads of places of interest, places to eat, walks, etc. One such walk is only a few miles away at Golitha Falls which at this time of the year is truly spectacular, not only because of amazing autumnal colours but also because of the tremendous sound of the river, swollen by the recent rain or rather storms! Any photograph cannot do the river and the waterfalls full justice as to see it in full, mighty flow is truly amazing.
The falls at Golitha are a series of cascades and waterfalls along a section of the River Fowey as it makes its way through the ancient oak woodland of Draynes Wood. It is one of the best known beauty spots on Bodmin Moor.
As the river flows through the woods the scenery varies, from wide wooded glades to the steep sided, craggy gorge where the falls are at their most dramatic. Over the course of the falls the river descends 90 metres meaning the water is always fast flowing.
After an interesting and enjoyable walk, it's hard not to be tempted into Inkie's Smokehouse and BBQ back at the car park for a well deserved feast or coffee and cake. The food is amazing, the portions extremely generous and service friendly, efficient and quick. The poached egg and bacon is served on maple syrup pancakes - they look like, but definitely are not the plate!
All in all, a great day out, particularly at this time of year.
