Just goes to prove you don’t need to spend money to have a great time. Unbelievable to think we live in such a beautiful part of the world to have this on our doorstep. I agree with one reviewer who recommended the 2nd car park...More

The walk to the waterfalls is long with some steep hills and difficult terrain. Not suitable for those with walking difficulties or serious medical conditions. Once you manage the hike to the first waterfall you realise it's worth it, and by the time you've finished...More

I have been here a few times and the views are spectacular! However as we took the dogs, we found some issues with disposing of their waste. Hopefully BBNPA will add some more bins to the area soon!

Absolutely amazing places! We parked in Cwm Porth carpark £4 for all day. It is well worth all the walking, took us just over 4 hours to do all 4, there are very steep steps down to some of the falls, the weather was damp...More

I would say that the 8 year old should manage fine and I would assume that the youngest would be in a sling or carrier. The rucksack type, or in front of the chest sling would keep the hands free to negotiate the terrain. I... More
