Dyserth waterfall walk

Including Rhaeadr Dyserth.

Ability requirements (key)


From Cardiff, take the A470 to Builth Wells, then the A483 to the A55 junction at Chester. From Chester, take the A55 towards Conwy. Exit at junction 31, and take the A5151 towards Prestatyn, reaching the village of Dyserth after 6 miles. At the traffic light junction at the far edge of the village, turn right onto the B5119, signposted to the waterfall. Follow it down the hill to the Rhaeadr Dyserth waterfall site on the right, and park in the parking area just after it. SJ 0562 7930.


The waterfall can be seen from the road, but for the best view, pay the fee to enter the site, and explore the industrial heritage. The waterfall lies at the back of the garden, tucked into an alcove behind a large stone wall. A smaller waterfall lies on the path to the right at the base of the main waterfall. Behind the stone wall, some steps lead up to an upper garden, where various paths lead into the little woodland. One to the right also reaches the top of the waterfall (take care near the drop).
