We just spent 2 days staying at Devils Bridge falls and were totally blown away! Would highly recommend.. very unspoilt and stunning location. Close to lovely campsite and gorgeous food at the Haford hotel.. we will be back for sure!

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed this trip. The views are out of this world and really quite magical. I would not however recommend it for little or old legs. Some of the steps are really very steep. However, we did share a sense of...More

Lovely short walk around the falls. We did the longer walk which took about 30mins. Worth visiting if you're already in the area but not a big enough attraction to make a long journey too.

We went to the falls after staying in the nearby hotel Hafod. The walk around was really interesting and the wildlife, helped to build the interest into the falls. We went early in the day and it was quiet, so we could enjoy the views...More

There are two separate activities around the bridge and falls. The trip to the punch bowl is just £1 and the view of the bridges and the water is epic

There are 2 areas to walk the punchbowl on one side of the road and devil's bridge on the other. Both offer a good view of the bridge. Views are spectacular! A good level of fitness is needed for the bridge (there is a health...More

The scenery around Devil's Bridge is amazing and if you are in the area, it's well worth a look. The walk down and up the falls is extremely steep with lots of steps. It can be quite slippy in places and walking boots are a...More

There are a lot of steps which lead you down into the gorge to see the waterfall. I'm so glad you thought the walk was worth it. Thank you so much for your review.

I personally would not take a little one to Devils bridge, the footpath in very rock and the steps at Jacobs ladder are steep and very narrow. There isn’t much else to do there but there is a cafe in the hotel. Beautiful... More
