Incredible views, take your best camera, lots of water and lots of energy! It's a beautiful walk but once you think you're in your stride, it gets mental uphill!

Took a lovely walk to the waterfalls. Parking is a little tricky but once we found our spot we set off. It’s a fantastic spot, the walk was challenging as the gradient was steeper than I thought, but the views are worth it.

This is a great place to go for a walk with or without the dogs, take a picnic and take in the lovely scenery.

Nice walk in a lovely area easily accessible from a road and parking a few miles away. Dogs are permitted but to be kept on a lead due to sheep grazing

We walked to the waterfall on a wet December Sunday. The path was well marked and felt safe. As regular walkers, we were surprised how quickly we got out of breath on this short walk. Would like to return on a sunny day.

You certainly can't get a push chair to the top, but I think you could manage if you had one of the backpack child carriers with the child firmly strapped in. It's quite steep in places, so you would need to be careful... More
