  • We visited the Force at the beginning of March during a particularly cold spell - which was maybe why we were the only people around. Maybe because of the wet weather the Force was in full flow - amaz...  more »
  • Short walk to the falls - as in very short from the car park! We didn't spend too long here, but can see how it can made in to an extended walk if you climb up the steps and walk up to the top and rou...  more »
  • We viewed just after the snow had melted and it was pretty fierce and impressive. There is a pretty and short walk to the fall. I imagine it would be lovely in summer for a picnic.  more »

  • This really is a lovely place to go. Make sure you have change for the turnstile, as the pub often doesn't have much spare!! It's only a short walk to the waterfall, but once you are there you can walk round and behind (providing you are very careful) and up the other side to the top. It's quite an incredible sight, around 100ft drop. Can get some lovely photos if you're into photography, I took my Phantom 4 drone up too! The surrounding area has got many walks around so it's quite easy to add it in to a whole day's worth of activities. Been there twice now and it's a very pretty place and there's never masses of people there. Some picnic benches are located around for if you want to stop for lunch. Overall, highly recommend going.
  • Impressive waterfall in nice gorge. Lots of paths around the area so you can explore. Looks like a great place to camp as well. Costs £2.50 per adult to get in.
  • Delightfully quaint little pub. Barkeep has a cool moustache. Fresh food served. However alot of the carbonated drinks are out of bottles which go flat. Stick to beer.
  • Fantastic ace to visit. I've been a few times now d just simply love it. Great for the kids and Ideal walking spot for any dog.
  • A great attraction and a spectacular waterfall. The top path no longer makes a complete loop because of a missing bridge but you get a great view from the upper path on the east side of you have the time. Be prepared with change to get in £2.50 in exact change per person during the winter!
