With heavy hearts, we have made the decision this morning to close Canonteign Falls for the foreseeable future in response to Government mandatory orders and to minimise the spread of Covid-19.  We’re very lucky to have a wonderfully supportive and amazing team here and an incredible visitor base who have continued to support us during this time of uncertainty.  We will navigate through this time but at the moment our primary concern is to flatten the curve and minimise the spread of this virus.  So we will remain closed until it is safe for our team to come back to work and for visitors to return.  If you have any questions please do email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and he will happily help you.  We will keep everyone updated via our website and social media platforms.  Canonteign Falls is committed to supporting their staff and given the recent Government announcements, we will not be making any redundancies.  Stay safe and healthy everyone and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
