The Waterfall

Home / Aberfforest Bay / The Waterfall

Just a minute’s walk from Barnacle Cottage, nestled in the woods, is the waterfall, a fabulous place to explore, for adults, children and dogs alike.

A circular route follows the picturesque track to the beach and back to the cottage through ancient woodlands taking in the waterfall on the way. Alternatively head straight in to the woods from the yard, cross the dramatic waterfall and follow the stream as it idly meanders its way to the sea. Stepping stones bridge the stream near the beach but wellies are advised to cross the head of the waterfall!

Every time you visit the woods you will discover something new or notice some novel or intriguing aspect in this ancient, natural and ever-changing landscape.

The sound of the stream flowing over the waterfall, audible from the cottage, provides a subtle and charming acoustic backdrop to a stay in Aberfforest, making it impossible not to relax and unwind completely.
