Disappointed that they close so early. They basically shut the gates under our noses. And it was only 4pm. We were not only one who wanted to walk and see the falls... It was so lovely and sunny evening, it would have been lovely walk.

Lovely country park, nice lakes with gentle walks. If you want to climb up to the top of the fall, its 90 high steps. However, its a great photography location if you are interested in log exposure shots of waterfalls.

A big climb, lots of steps, but very worthwhile! Great reward at the end though, a lux hot chocolate by the lake in the sunshine!

It's advertised as open all year including a road sign less than a mile away but was marked as closed until Easter at the gate so a completely wasted journey.

Spectacular setting. Easy to find, signposted from the dual carriageway. Easy parking and reasonable entry prices. Stunning walk up through the waterfall, a bit of an uphill hike, resting places provided on the way up and well worth the effort when you reach the top!!
