Swallow falls

(Rhaeadr Ewynnol)

Swallow falls (or Rhaeadr Ewynnol) is a nice waterfall west of Betws-y-Coed in England, United Kingdom.

From Betws-y-Coed drive west on road A4 for 4 kilometer until you see a parking at the right side of the road opposite of Swallow fall hotel. A path leads to a nice viewpoint right in front of the waterfall.

Another point of view on Swallow falls is if you drive further west for 1,5 kilometer until you reach the bridge at Ty Hyll (ugly house). From here a trail at the north side of the river leads to another viewpoint on Swallow falls.

Swallow falls drops down over only 9 meter but is quit impressive because of its shape and most of the time a respectable volume.

Although it seems that Swallow falls has a consistent volume, best time to visit the waterfall is in late springtime or after a rainy period.
