  • Loved this place. Lovely walk even my 7 and 10 year old boys enjoyed it. Beautiful views and great waterfall. Would definitely go again if in the area.
  • Great place with truly amazing views of the waterfall and devil's Cauldron. The kids loved it aswell as they felt like Indiana Jones while holding onto the rails on the narrow parts of the path next to the river. Lovely friendly staff also.
  • Beautiful really lovely, obviously quite a hike so leave enough time! Also be aware that the two cafes are tea rooms so don't do substantial food only snacks
  • This place is beautiful, you could easily spend most of the day here. I packed a picnic but you could head to the tea rooms for a light bite and refreshments. They have some fun activities for the children at different times during the year and the staff are always welcoming and helpful. You can do one big trail (depending on fitness) that would take approximately 2 hrs or a couple of shorter ones that would take 30 mins each possibly longer if you doddle and take lots of photos like myself. Highly recommended this place especially see Devils Cauldron, that was amazing.
  • Gorgeous walk, not for faint hearted! Keep dogs close, steep falls to side. Free for National Trust members.
