We used this postcode SA10 9PG on the satnav to find Henrhyd Waterfall. Although this isn't for the car park it gets you quite close. The car park is owned by The National Trust. The waterfall can be reached after a steep walk down into...More

Drove all the way there. Ground was slippery and soggy. Signage wasn’t too clear for new visitors. Parking was good. Local residents friendly.

Having watched Batman Begins and watched the Batmobile (thanks to CGI) jump through the waterfall into the Batcave, couldn't resist the chance to visit Henrhyd Waterfall where it was filmed. Free carpark at the top with a steep 10 minute walk downhill to the falls...More

Bit of a climb to get to and not suitable in wet weather. Falls are well worth the effort to find and to hike to. Free car park which is great.

Getting to a hidden waterfall is a bit of a gamble. Will it be worth the effort? The harder to reach, the harsher the judgment upon arrival. If it's challenging, we want loud, high, wide falls crashing down in a splatter alongside jagged outcrops. If...More

Decided to visit with little research. The path was steep and damp under foot so care needed. Water was not at full force. My husband walked behind the fall but obviously care is needed. Wouldn't go again.

It’s a long walk up a steep hill to the car park which is free (the one above the Henrhyd ).... but it’s the batcave so it’s worth it, very slippy if it’s raining, you can walk under it but some of the path has...More

Beautiful in any weather but when its wet and water is running fast it adds a new look on the falls, in summer its very beautiful when its hot sunny and again looks amazing
