Very nice walk out of Talgarth. Not too strenuous. Better to go after it has been raining to appreciate the true beauty of the waterfalls

Came here for a quick stop before heading home from a short break in Talgarth. We had our 3 year old daughter with us who managed the walk to the main waterfall viewing area just fine. Enjoyed the spectacular views and took some amazing photos

Brave the narrow roads of Talgarth and enjoy the riverside walk on offer here. Parking for three/four cars only. There is an accessible ramp down to the river, but not to the waterfalls. For these you will need some good waterproof shoes when it's been raining as it will be very muddy in places. The upper path is, for the... More

We stumbled upon this spot by accident, having visited the mill at Talgarth & looking for somewhere to eat our picnic (and fresh bread!) We pulled up at the first available parking spot, which just happened to be above some steps leading down to the waterfall. The steps were quite steep and muddy following rain the night before, but my... More

This was the highlight of a circular walk that we completed around Tagarth. The reserve contains a picturesque waterfall and the shade from the trees was lovely. The paths were in good condition, but it was easy to see how they would become very boggy in the winter months.

Very muddy when we visited it due to the recent rainfall but that didn't stop the dog enjoying the walk and coming back covered in mud. Very peaceful and scenic, we went there on a Monday and didn't see a single other person.

We loved our walk down to the waterfall along the 'easy' path and then had a very muddy walk back along the river. Despite the mud, it was a thoroughly delightful place and great place to walk. We felt very close to the nature spirits and the devas.

There is a small parking area and an easy access path down to the river. However, if you want to visit the waterfall, you will need to be prepared for rough paths and sometimes steep drops. However it is well worth visiting if you are able to get to it. Even if you can't, this is a nice broadleaf woodland... More

A little gem of a wild and peaceful woodland walk to the waterfall. Narrow road to the start but you can park further away and walk. Great when the waterfall is frozen in winter.

The nature reserve is 8.5 hectares of beautiful ancient woodland, which slopes down to the banks of the River Ennig. At the eastern end of the reserve the river plunges over a spectacular waterfall into a dark pool below, known as the "witches pool" from which the reserve gets it name. The nearest town is Talgarth and the reserve's grid... More
