Cwm Porth Information Point sits directly above the entrance to the Porth yr Ogof cave system where the waters of the Afon Mellte are swallowed whole as they enter Wales's largest cave entrance. 

Here in the heart of Waterfall Country, Cwm Porth is also a great location to start your exploration of this fascinating area. You will find car parking, toilets, outdoor changing facilities and a small shop.

You can reach the car park by following signs along minor roads from the village of Ystradfellte.

The car park and shop is staffed seven days a week; pick up your maps and guides for Waterfall Country and the wider Fforest Fawr Geopark here, and select from a small range of drinks and snacks to fuel your visit.

You can also purchase the exclusive Waterfall Country Pack here -  the only guide you will need to explore this fantastic part of the Brecon Beacons National Park.
