“Beautiful Waterfall”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

The waterfall is absolutley stunning, and has plenty of places to capture pictures. Also as the sun was shining we could just make out a rainbow from the river! The steps down are slippery in places as you would expect next to water. But not really much else to see/do unless you visit betws-y-coed which is a beautiful place

“Very pretty beauty spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Well worth the £1.50 entrance fee. Although its not the largest attraction to visit it is quite breathtaking to see the waterfall. Spend some time sitting on the benches and taking in the views and the relaxing noise of the falls

“walk there and pay to go down to the falls- worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We had a lovely walk along the stream from Betwy-Y-Coed and the falls were more extensive than we had expected - a very pretty spot.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

But there is a charge of £1.50 to see it which is a little overpriced for the time spent there. Definitely worth seeing though

“Definitely worth a stop.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

We stopped off here and enjoyed the short walk. The is a short walk down and then back up to a higher vantage point. Beautiful and easy to access.
