About Glen Helen

Formerly known as Glen Rhenass, it was bought by a Liverpool man named John A Marsden and developed as a resort under a new name (his daughter's). A large area themed on glen gardens with rustic bridges and waterfalls through foliage. The picturesque cottage was once the private residence of Mr Marsden. It burned down in 1983, but was rebuilt as it was before and is now run as a restaurant. The main attraction of the glen is Rhenass Fall, a stream which makes its way down between two hills lined with boulders. One side of the glen has wide well maintained walkways. On the other side of the river, the path is narrow and can be wet. There is a playground with equipment for children near the beginning of the glen. Food and Meals available from the family friendly Glen Helen Inn.
