The falls were in full flood yesterday awe inspiring. A short walk to the falls on level ground and we did not mind the £2.50 charge as they are privately owned.

This is a lovely waterfall with nice photography opportunities. It's a very short amble (5 mins) from the pub and not much there other than the waterfall but still ... it's one of the few waterfalls you can walk behind and its combination of singular...More

Park at the Green Dragon Pub and pay at the bar. Pay kiosk and cafe in CP is now closed. About 300m walk to falls but worth the uphill trek just to see this amazing sight. Seat are available on the way where you can...More

We visited and duly paid our £2.50 each to walk the path to the falls - it was just a dribble after such a dry period would look better after heavy rain no doubt but still not sure why payment is charged or what it...More

After seeing Hardraw force come out of the Green Dragon pub and turn right. Walk to the stream. Locals walk along there. However, there is lots of walks in the area. Just follow your nose. Beautiful area.
