Had a great day out here - climbed to the top of the falls - fabulous views. Great cafe too - friendly and helpful staff. Dogs are welcome as long as they are on leads. Definitely worth a visit.

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!
