The outdoor range includes fleeces, rucksacks, boots, and things that you might need to explore the Gorge and wider Dartmoor area. Walking poles, which can be useful when traversing the uneven paths in the gorge, are also for sale. Sweets, chocolate and biscuits are a cheeky indulgence after all that effort, but worth it.

You can find herbs, wild flowers, shrubs and more in the plant centre, all plants are supplied by the National Trust Lanhydrock nursery.

A small selection of confectionary, children’s toys and outdoor essentials are also available from the Waterfall entrance visitor reception.
