Watersmeet Waterfalls, Lynmouth, Devon, UK | National Trust Waterfalls in a deep, wooded valley (10 of 10)

Watersmeet Waterfalls, on National Trust property, near Lynton and Lynmouth, Devon, UK

 

Although my main interest is in gardens, the waterfalls in this set of photos represent ‘nature’s garden’ at its best. Mosses, ferns and lichens all grow in profusion in the ideal micro-climate of the permanently damp surroundings near the falls.

 

Watersmeet falls are in one of England’s deepest river gorges within a steep wooded valley. The waters that meet here are Hoar Oak Water and the East Lyn River.

 

Location: The falls are near the National Trust’s Watersmeet House, Watersmeet Road, Lynmouth, Devon, EX35 6NT, UK. There are tea rooms at the site, situated in a fishing lodge dating back to 1832. The area is part of the Exmoor National Park.
