Pistyll Rhaeadr | Waterfall in Wales

Updated: Jan 2

Pistyll Rhaeadr is the highest waterfall in England and Wales, and has to be viewed in person as the photos really don't do it justice! The waterfall itself and the surrounded woodlands are absolutely stunning.

Visitors will be greeted with an amazing waterfall as well as scenic views when they plan a visit to Pistyll Rhaeadr. The road leading up to it however is very narrow and is only a single track, so we recommend not going when it's during busy season.

This is a truly stunning waterfall, when viewed from the bottom. Plenty of rocks to climb/walk on too. – Google Review

For those feeling adventurous, you can venture to the top of Pistyll Rhaeadr by taking the path on the car park side. Please take extra care if you do decide to hike up it!
