A lovely waterfall, well worth the small admission fee - only a very short walk and parking is free if there is space in the layby outside.

Swallow Falls are only a short walk from the main road, though entry is through a pay turnstile, currently £2.00. Worth a short stop to visit.

Having not visited the Swallow Falls since childhood, they were even more spectacular some 50 years later! Three points to mention: 1) Entrance charge is only £2 per adult (in cash); 2) the Swallow Falls are some two miles before you get to Betws-y-Coed and...More

We don't have a dog so am not certain, although we did se people with dogs on our walk. However, if dogs are permitted it would be dangerous to let them off the lead as they could fall into the fast flowing river
