An easy accessible waterfall which most people surprisingly find unexpectedly! You can park in Hartland Quay which is only a 30 minute stroll to see the waterfall. Once you get to the waterfall you will also be rewarded with amazing views.

Along the South West footpath on a great stretch of coast line is Speke's Mill Mouth Waterfall. It's a unique waterfall in our eyes, and it's something different to see on a coast line (especially on one of the best coast lines in Britain!).


Why not take a scramble to the beach at the bottom too to enjoy the scenic views and also have a play around in the rockpools?

The most unexpected and heavenly find. We planned to do a little walk to the waterfall but didn’t expect it to be faced with a 48m giant. – Google Review

The walk to Speke's Mill Mouth Waterfall is relatively easy, with the only tiring part being the steep climb down the steps just before the waterfall. If you happen to be near the area, we absolutely recommend as it's such a nice spot to visit with amazing views!
