We had a fabulous day out at Becky Falls. Such a beautiful spot in Devon and the little animal zone at the start was a very nice surprise, as well as the insect and reptile hut. We were a bit taken aback by the initial entry cost, mainly because we didn't know it was a chargeable activity but it was well worth the money. Spotlessly clean everywhere, well sign posted footpaths, the ability to free roam within reason across the rocks. Definitely a must visit!

Beautiful place. Friendly staff who are very helpful. Plenty of parking. Affordable. The animals were well looked after, and you can pay £1 to feed them, they also give talks about them and ofer animal encounter experiences in the reptile house. There is a cafe, toilets, gift shop, reptile house, several walks, waterfalls and picnic areas. You could easily spend all day there.

We had a great time at Becky Falls, we (a 73 year old and one of us carrying a baby) followed the purple trail which takes you down alongside the river, through the ancient woodland, up a steep path through the woods and back along the other side of the river. So peaceful, incredible scenery and the informative signs along the route were a bonus. Personally not a fan of the animal area but the rest was definitely worth a visit.

Becky Falls is definitely worth a visit if you're in the area and have a mixture of age groups in your party. On one hand you can explore a very attractive environment via the several paths that loop around the falls and the river. And on the other there is a small but interesting range of animals for children to see and enjoy - especially if they like creepy-crawlies. I'm not sure that you could spend the whole day here, making it a slightly expensive excursion if you don't book in advance, but you can certainly fill a morning or an afternoon. There's also an on-site café that provides a reasonable range of standard dishes and these seemed to go down well with the kids. All in all Becky Falls was a worthwhile side trip and certainly easier than walking in the hills!

Wonderful time with my bestie. I'm not overly active but was still able to do the red trail and I would suggest the red trail as you get to see so much of the waterfall and you can take it as slow as you need to. The staff are really friendly and we're amazing with the dogs even though mine was a little yappy 🤦🏻‍♀️🤣. Absolutely beautiful area and so cute to see the meerkats and farm animals.
