About this walk

This is a very picturesque walk. There are several different routes you can take depending on what sort of walk you want to do. Dogs are allowed both on and off leads, but I keep mine on due to there being some long drops down into the waterfall and river. There is a tea room which is open most days. Parking is free but the road in is very bumpy so take it steady.
