This was a most magical place and will be visiting and enjoying it again soon. This is ideal for both families and adults alike - although not very young children - could be lots of carry's!

We decided to go to see the waterfalls on our recent trip to Wales and it was well worth it. However, I am glad no one told us before that it was quite a walk and a lot of climbing up and down was involved...More

Part of 4 and a 1/2 hours walk around 4 waterfalls, well worth the long walk and steep descent to the waterfalls and climb back up to the main trail. Able to walk behind the waterfall and touch it - another tick off the bucket...More

We completed the four fall trails and surely this is the crown jewel. Well worth the walk and the weather was great too which really made our trip more posts pleasant.

Another part of an amazing day. These walks and waterfalls and once again breathtaking. This is an area that requires a packed lunch and lots of water but definitely worth the planning. We only managed two of the falls but will return.
