Amazing place, can spend hours just watching the waterfall and the scenery around it, although the walk can be challenging

We walked this with our 4 daughters (aged 10-11) and they really enjoyed it. It was muddy in places as it is so shaded so can be a bit slippery. The waterfall at the end was stunning and we enjoyed eating lunch here while watched...More

Probably the prettiest waterfall in the UK. A good day hike. Proper walking shoe and dress recommended.

Sgwd yr Eira is the biggest and most spectacular of the four waterfalls in this area, however it is well worth doing the four waterfalls walk rather than just visiting the one. There are a couple of places to start the walk - I parked...More

The paths are reasonably good, so I believe you could use a buggy for the 3 year old. The inclines are not steep. It took us about 40 minutes to walk to the falls at a leisurely pace with a few stops to take photos. Enjoy... More
