Absolutely beautiful. Not a too tasking a walk - we had a 5 & 3yo with us. Waterfalls are stunning and it’s a great way to spend a couple of hours. Kids loved it. Lucky for us the sun shone too

We parked in the top car park and walked up to view two waterfalls, then walked down from the top car park to find the lower falls. Heading up from where the two paths join the path was narrow and quite overgrown. The views of...More

Visited to experience the waterfalls with our dog. Quite a steady incline up to the waterfalls which is quite nice as has stepping stones with pools to paddle in. There are a lot of biting insects around though! Big biters along with usual gnats! People...More

Fantastic walking up to the waterfall and down the river. Eventually found the remains of a WW2 wellington bomber that had crashed here in 1942. I saw the remains of the plane 45 years ago with my dad although apart from a few bits of...More

I love this place. After Fan Y Fan Fach, this is my favourite place in the UK. So many fabulous waterfalls and all within a very short walk of each other. Can be a little slippery at times but the paths are good and not...More

A hidden gem in the Brecon Beacons. I enjoyed this place just as much as the four waterfall walk. Free parking. We parked on the lower car park and crossed the river so it was on our left. It offered much better views of the...More
