Nice easy walk around the area, very picturesque. Quiet sheltered so even when raining the walk is nice. Take a torch for later afternoon/evening as no street lights (you wouldn't want them as they would stand out too much in the natural surroundings)

We walked to the Fairy Glen from our guest house in Betws-y-Coed as part of a circular walk and I am glad we did, its beautiful especially after rain. Be sure to take a camera.

Nice little walk down to the water, little bit rocky so be careful when walking down. Charges are ok. 50p per person and £1 for a car. Great for the kids when you get down to the picnic area. So quite and tranquil.

Such a stunning place. Only a short gentle walk, can be done in half an hour, but as the entrance is 50p (plus £1 for parking) so worth it. Take a picnic so you can sit and admire the scenery!

Definitely worth a visit. Beautiful walk and lovely scenery. The path is easy to follow. A short scenic route to the fairy glen and then a riverside walk back. Not a long walk bit definitely worth a visit

the kids loved clambering over the boulders, the magical place is a stunning gorge with torrents of water and a picnic site.
