  • Really great place to walk by the river and see the falls. Devils cauldron is great experience just for the noise as is the white lady water fall. Note the walks down to/up from the valley floor are a bit tough and can be slippy but we'll worth it. National trust site so has the normal quality shops and tea room at both car parks. 1 ticket to access both parts.
  • Would have loved to spend longer here but we were traveling to our final holiday destination that day. Even though the weather could have been better the paths were fine and the gorge itself was a real experience. The café was reasonably priced and the staff were friendly.
  • 1 of the best hikes I've had in the area. Never a dull moment along the gorge hike, always something interesting to look at too.
  • Wow - just stunning. Felt like we were in the tropics at times. Last minute decision to visit with family. So happy we did. One of the best days out of our holiday despite the occasional shower. Great staff and breathtaking views whatever the weather.
  • Loved every minute of it. If you are short of time park in the main car park and go and see Devils cauldron well worth the visit.
