Access: This one is very easy. Before I was interested in waterfalls I drove past it several times without knowing there was a good view of this fantastic, deep gorge and very high waterfall.

To get there when travelling along the B4518, from Staylittle / Penffordd-Las towards Pennant; these are small villages. About two miles from Staylittle turn left onto a wide unclassified road signposted Dylife. After about three quarters of a mile there is a long lay bye on the right. Stop here get out of the car and the valley will spread out in front of you. The waterfall to the left. I suppose it is less impressive in summer. It appears that many people go into the farmer’s field to get a better view. The author of, “The Waterfalls of Wales”, John Llewelyn Jones, warns that; “especially after rain the approach can be as slippery as glass, and they should keep well away from the edge of the giant gorge”. In snow and ice I prudently declined the better view was from behind the fence!




Comment: Park next to it in a lay-bye.


The Icicles in this picture are about 12 feet long!
