Stunning views. Trails well marked and there are many of different lengths and for different abilities. We took the waterfall trail which was spectacular. Large carpark. 5 pounds to park but well worth it. Its a great day out. Good toilet facilities and a great...More

Loved the Waterfall walk.... Not too strenuous or long and lovely escape from the busy coastal days out. Parking was £5 regardless of length of stay. Good cafe & toilets. Beautiful scenery.

This is a lovely area for walking. We did the red trail and it was challenging. We continued on to the waterfall route as well. Beautiful landscape. The car park doesn’t take card and the cafe doesn’t give cash back. We came up from the...More

The only rating I gave here was for the stunning views because you can't really argue with that. Other than this, I was thoroughly disappointed. Traveling just short of 50 minutes to get to the park, me and my boyfriend were really looking forward to...More

Both walks do have hills. The waterfall trail is beautiful, it's 1.5miles or so but does have a few steep hills.
