Pistyll Rhaeadr (Wales) Reviews
Newest Review: ... toilet block for those unavoidable calls of nature. From the parking area it is a short walk of a few minutes to the waterfall itself. You cross a stile at a little clearing with a carved wooden statue and make your way down a rocky path to where an iron bridge has been built over the river to stand and admire the waterfall. It truly is an astounding sight. 240 feet above, a cascade of white water falls thunderously from a sheer drop. Halfway down, the force of the torrent has carved a hole in the cliff through which the pounding waters surge, tainted a browny-yellow from the peat in the soil. From there, the water gushes impressively do... more

LOCATION Waterfall Lane Llanrhaeadr Ym Mochnant, Powys, SY10 0BZ, Wales Tel: 01691 780392 Web: www.pistyllrhaeadr.co.uk Email: firstname.lastname@example.org We visited Pistyll Rhaeadr (tr. the spring of the waterfall), one of the Seven Wonders of Wales, on a cloudy day in September 2011. It's easy to find. Head to Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant (tr. the church by the waterfall in the commote of the fast-flowing stream), get yourself onto Waterfall Lane and just keep going for several miles. The road ends at the waterfall so you can't go any further. I say road - it's a single track lane with passing places, so don't ... Read the complete review

(On Ciao quite a while ago)... According to an old doggerel, there are seven Wonders of Wales: 'Pistyll Rhaeadr and Wrexham steeple, Snowdon's mountain without its people, Overton yew trees, St Winefride wells, Llangollen bridge and Gresford bells.' Right, in order... 1) Pistyll Rhaeadr - Have patience. I'll deal with it in a minute. 2) Wrexham Steeple - A steeple? This? Hello? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Stgileswrexham.jpg 3) Snowdon - Well, I'm not quibbling with that...the finest mountain massif in England and Wales. And so much better when not infested by day ... Read the complete review

Pistyll Rhaeadr is the highest waterfall in Wales. With a drop of 260 feet, it is actually higher than Niagara Falls in North America (although the volume of water passing over is a lot less than Niagara, of course!). The waterfall is also the highest single drop waterfall in the whole of the UK and is listed as one of The Seven Wonders of Wales. The Welsh name of the falls means 'water spout waterfall' which seems an excessive description, but the falls actually comprise of a water spout, shooting over a cliff, followed by another fall, so the ancient Welsh who named Pistyll Rhaeadr knew what they were doing! To get to Pistyll Rhaeadr is not the ... Read the complete review

I recently read an opinion by Ellen67 of the Foz do Iguaco falls in Southern Brazil, which plunge 289 ft into the Iguacu river below. Entitled ‘Do not read this if you suffer from vertigo’ the review was a well-written piece of work describing one of the world’s largest and most impressive waterfalls. As it happens at the time I was considering writing an opinion on a waterfall close to where I live, but decided to shelve the idea after reading the review because Pistyll Rhaeadr seemed to pale into insignificance compared to the majesty of this South American Waterfall. However I’ve had second thoughts, I’ve decided that ... Read the complete review
