What a stunning place! The walk through the woods to the waterfall is magical and the view from the top is spectacular. Ruby’s coffee in the cafe is excellent - and a great accompaniment to the home-baked cakes. We will be going again!

Really enjoyed our walk in the summer. As we expected the Falls were a bit empty but after no rain for 2 months that was not a surprise. The fairies, dinosaur and other little interesting bits and bobs kept our 7 years olds interested and...More

We visited for the afternoon this week and enjoyed a very worthwhile walk around the park and the falls, admiring the spectacular view from the summit. For those with young children the play areas are excellent and we enjoyed a lovely lunch in the cafe.
