  • Amazing beautiful waterfall. To see such beauty is so peaceful an great to be at. I enjoyed every moment being here and taking images of it. Bear in mind, be cautious about driving on the road, it's a single track road and has some pot holes, there are some crossing ways and please make sure to use them. There is ample parking right at the waterfall with minimal walking, maybe not as easy for wheelchairs. Charge is approx £4 for the car park and 20p for the doors at the toilets, which close at approx 630 I believe. Do take your time here and be safe.
  • Good point is the waterfall. It’s stunning. Good walks all around. Helpful staff. Car Park was £4. Lots of good view points and maps to show the walks. Negatives. The approach is awful and lots of selfish people parking on an already narrow single track road making it really difficult to access and leave. The route up is steep in places so take your time. Windows open to hear oncoming vehicles as passing points are small and few. It was 20p to use the toilets, even if you use the cafe, which I think is a bit cheeky if you’ve bought food and drink. It also didn’t work very well with several people getting stuck in the turnstiles while we were there.
  • Stunning waterfall. I love and respect the fact that it's unspoiled by guard rails and safety barriers and relies on common sense to keep people away from the edge... There are footprints leading right up to it! Great views, fair rates for parking, friendly staff in the little cafe
  • Great place. Lovely walking. You can do a steep long walk to the top or just take the kids to look around the bottom. Amazing waterfall. Be aware that it's 20p for the toilet and it doesn't give change. There is a lovely cafe and little car park right at the bottom of the waterfall so even people who can't walk far can access the falls. That dark park is £3 but there is an unofficial layby rocky car park for free just a little further down the road. To get to the falls there isn't really much signage and the road is quite narrow so take caution when passing cars. Definitely recommend good waterproof footwear.
  • WOW! what an awesome place. Love the scenery and clean facilities too. Great place to spend a (wet) day in the hills!
