“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Disappointed that they close so early. They basically shut the gates under our noses. And it was only 4pm. We were not only one who wanted to walk and see the falls...
It was so lovely and sunny evening, it would have been lovely walk.

“Pleasant few hours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We spent about 2 hours here having used as a stop off/time filler on way back from a weekend away. We circumnavigated the main lake with a disability scooter but unfortunately could not manage the climb to the very top of the waterfall, but the view from the bottom was good enough. A peaceful place that also had a couple of play ground areas, a shop and café. On the Sunday we visited the local model boat club was using the main lake which added interest. We finished off with a cream tea from the lovely café and all in all it was a great break in our journey home. Next time we will take a picnic and make better use of the facilities.

“Good day out with the family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We spent about 3 hours here doing the long walk to the top with a 5 year old, a pensioner and the little one in the rentable back carriers. We made it to the top (220ft up) and the views were beautiful! When you get back down the cafe is very nice for recharging and there is an onsite shop as well with locally made jams & biscuits. There are 2 playgrounds for the children and they can buy food to feed the ducks on the beautiful lake!

“90 Steps to the top....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Lovely country park, nice lakes with gentle walks. If you want to climb up to the top of the fall, its 90 high steps. However, its a great photography location if you are interested in log exposure shots of waterfalls.

“Highest Waterfall in England!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

A big climb, lots of steps, but very worthwhile! Great reward at the end though, a lux hot chocolate by the lake in the sunshine!
