  • This is a lovely hidden gem in the Dales. We always make a point of visiting here when we come to the area. Just go and have a look words cannot discribe the splender of this waterfall at the end of.....  more »
  • Have visited before and love this short flat walk as I having limited mobility, Benches along the walk are ideal for a quick rest before you get to the pretty waterfall.  more »
  • They are well sign posted with space for parking a couple of cars, then a very easy walk flat to these very pretty falls.  more »

  • On a busy day, parking may be tricky, but on our non half term February day, we were the only ones. With much water driving the force, it was a dramatic sight at the end of a short walk. What is great about this waterfall, which is rare, is that it is accessible for wheelchair users.
  • Pretty waterfalls just outside Hawes. Very limited parking but the path to the falls has a good level surface meaning it can be accessed by parents with pushchairs and also possibly by wheelchairs. Worth a visit if you can't manage the walks to some of the more famous falls and even if you can!
  • Lovely quiet waterfall, nice short walk down to it, if you are brave enough good for a swim.
  • Short 1/4 mile walk impressive after heavy rainfall.
  • Nice short walk over good paths to a beautiful waterfall, easily missed as it is signposted by a small wooden footpath sign but well worth the visit. Car parking in a small roadside layby.
