Ability requirements (key)

Directions

From Cardiff, take the M4 to junction 49, the end of the M4. From there, take the A48 to Camarthen. From Camarthen, take the A40 towards Fishguard. Follow it for a very long way until just after the Narberth roundabout, then take the B4313 to the right. Once you have passed Rosebush, turn left at the B4329 crossroads onto the B4329. After 0.5 miles, a forestry track leads off on the right, and a gated concrete track and gated footpath can be seen on the left. Park at the entrance to the forestry track. SN 0566 2955.

Route

The cascades are at their best when the Rosebush Reservoir is overflowing, which usually happens throughout the winter. However, at all times of year, some amount of water will be ejected above the main cascade. There is no public access to the site, and it is essential that you ask for permission before visiting. They are unlikely to refuse, and you will get the added bonus of being able to find out if the reservoir is overflowing. The site is owned by Dŵr Cymru/Welsh Water as part of the Llys y Frân management area. Contact details are available on the Visit Pembrokeshire Web site.

Follow the concrete track (which soon loses its concrete) down to the Rosebush Reservoir's dam. Immediately before the dam, a stepped path leads down on the right to the base of the dam. From there, a grassy path leads downstream, soon reaching steps down to a bridge. The cascades can be seen from the bridge, one upstream and one downstream.
