“Not to be missed”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Definitely worth a visit to see and hear the roar of the water as it changes from a flat, slow moving river to a mighty power house. There are exhibits, a film to watch, a lovely gift shop and Tea Room. Although it's not a place to spend a complete morning or afternoon, it is well worth including this site on a visit to other nearby attractions. Both educational and inspiring, I will definitely return. The staff were very helpful, knowledgeable and courteous.

“Water, water everywhere - including in the teapot and pristine loos!”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

The waterwheel, waterfalls, museum and teashop make this an excellent place to visit if you are handy with a camera, or interested in local history and industrial heritage sights.

Across the road by the car park there is a pathway through to something completely different.

Walk down by the river and there is a delightful scene of brightly coloured cottages alongside the canal.

Keep to your left and walk under the viaduct to the main road, turn left and left again after the pub, under the brick viaduct and you can have a peaceful place to picnic by the canal.

There's plenty of space to relax.

“Lovely day out”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

This is a lovely attraction, with excellent facilities for wheelchair users/prams. We visited with our 10 weeks old baby and I was worried it could be difficult to take the stroller around the site. In fact the place is so well thought and facilities are excellent that it really wasn't a problem. The site is perfectly kept, all staff were lovely and we had a fun afternoon. The site is too small for a whole day but definitely worth a visit if in the area. Next time we'll go back after a rainy day as I'm sure the waterfalls will be even more beautiful.

“Spectacular waterfalls, the rest a bit boring”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

This is a small site and not a great deal to see, the roar of the waterfalls is great and the site of them is spectacular, however the rest of the exhibits are a little boring and there seems to be a lot more to do, it does not look well cared for

“A Welsh Gem”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Visited today superb the Museum, incl film show, and falls proved a great day out. Staff all most helpful, cafe superb and vg value all home made. Many staff volunteers, lifts throughout the site for those with children or less abled. Free parking on roadside and opposite. Many choirs and handbell ringers to celebrate St Davids DAy were performing today this added to the superb atmosphere.
