Camping at a waterfall is quite a rare opportunity, but luckily the owners of this privately owned farmland are willing to share. An incredibly narrow road will bring you to the farm Cfen Uchaf (a harrowing experience for those with caravan). It is possible to pitch your tent at the bottom of the waterfall, next to the Nantcol river. The area is peaceful and is all about leisurely walks, enjoying the scenery with not much else than the free-roaming sheep. There are various trails around the area, from river walks to woodland walks. There are the rugged Rhinog Mountains a mile away, great for hiking. The campsite facilities are basic. In the summer months, there are portable toilets on site and the chance for bathing in the river. In the winter months, there is nothing. This camping experience is best left to Summer, when the simple pleasures and sights of the surrounds are at their best.
