“Picturesque”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

You can only view from viewing point would've liked to be able to get nearer to falls and walk along the side. Very steep lots of steps and not suitable for older or disabled persons. Easy access though through gate £1 each

“Swallow Falls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Absolutely beautiful and an easy short walk from Betwys-y-coed.
Because of the dense woodland the light is a bit gloomy and, in wet weather, the steps down to the waterfalls can be a bit slippery - but nothing that a good pair of walking boots cannot handle!

Stunning! Don't forget your waterproofs - the mist from the falls will get you. Steps down quite steep and uneven, take care.

“Lovely scenic view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Lovely view but be prepared to pay for it! Be careful on the steps if its raining as they can get quite slippy. Its tucked away so can be difficult to find but worth the effort!
