“Use the road side pathway.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014

We approached the falls from the wrong side of the river. Path was quite difficult and the view (so I was later informed) is far better from the, road side.

“Breathtaking!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2014

Warning, not for folk with mobility problems as it involves an awful lot of steps. We parked over at the Pay-and-Display car park next to The Swallow Falls Hotel. We crossed the road and as the entrance was unmanned at the time, we put the £1.50 each entrance fee in the slot in the wall, and used the turnstile. As it was pouring with rain when we went, the steps were a bit slippery, but there are good handrails all the way down. There was also a bench to 'catch your breath' halfway down.
The falls themselves are well worth the effort and are majestically beautiful, and I would imagine on a sunny day would look even more spectacular. There was another set of steps to another viewing platform and I think more paths to explore. Well worth a visit.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

Well worth stopping and taking the walk down to the falls. Very pretty place to spend an hour. Sit and listen to the water rushing down the falls.
