Beautiful waterfalls in well kept parkland. Multiple sites for viewing the falls, from top to bottom. Remember to bring a lot of loose change to get through the gates. Bank notes not accepted at the turnstiles.

It was a really pretty waterfall with lovely views, however it didn't take long at all to visit. There are only 2 viewing points. Costs £1.50 per person. There is a lay-by to park in along the road.

Yes I went with my 5 month old but I wouldn't bother with the pram as there are quite a few steps. They would be best in a carrier, hope this helps. X
