“Pretend”? You mean it isn’t really?
2 reviews of Dyserth Waterfall in English
I spent all my holidays in Dyserth as a child, as my grandparents lived in thispicturesque little village. The waterfall is an overlooked, magical little place. I used to pretend it was a fairies’ dell in the middle of the woods; there is a mini-wood around it. It is situated by a steep road leading between Dyserth and Prestayn, near the crossroads.
In the warmer months there is a small cafe and gift shop, even selling postcards of this natural beautyspot. They sell locally made ice cream and gorgeous scones and teas. They’re also very friendly, homely people. If you want something more substantial to eat, there is a pub offering meals, literally just across the road.
Both premises have a small amount of free parking. It is also worth exploring the church (if my memory serves me correctly, St Bridgets?) and its graveyard, next to the waterfall and opposite the pub.
The waterfall itself is magnificent and fascinating. I used to love sitting here being cooled by its spray on hot summer days. Be warned that it can be slippery around here, so keep hold of kids/pets.

knibbd, 24 January 2009:
Often overlooked by pleasure-seekers en-route to Rhyl’s noisy amusement arcades, Dyserth is a lovely and tranquil little place, blessed with a couple of fine pubs, a highly picturesque church and churchyard (check out some of the most unusual tombs and memorials), a good-value cafe with outdoor seating (although presently, as of 2008, the business is up for sale) boasting, for 30p, admission to invigorating views of the beautiful high waterfall which cascades down into a circular pool below. Take the steep steps up through the man-made gorge on the left, and make your way up to the higher ridge for rewarding panoramic views to the coast. If you’re nimble on your feet (and incredibly safety-conscious) nip over the wall to take a look further upstream, where you’ll find some impressive caves on the left-hand bank. Free, but limited, car-parking is available right next to the church, where you’ll also find the public toilets. Don’t just drive by the place, stop and take a look.
