This waterfall is amazing! It’s a short flat walk from the cafe/entrance & £2.50 pp (as privately owned). The rock formations around the fall are stunning with an overhang of 20ft in places. The force of the water can be heard as you approach along...More

Beautiful place, very peaceful and relaxing. Nice to see it doesn't ride on the back of the 'Kevin Costner' story but why should it when it's it's own credit! Tea rooms were nice and cosy although we went to the pub instead for refreshments! Dog...More

Beautiful stop as we drove across the Yorkshire Dales. Easy to park and walk to waterfall. Doesn’t take a lot of time so easy to visit as you tour this gorgeous area.

Costs £2.50 to go in and worth every penny which helps the upkeep of the place. Mobility Scooters are a no no unless you got an all terrain one, wheelchairs would be hard work as it's uneven but I managed quite ok on 2 sticks...More

We drove miles to see this force of nature. Not so much a force of nature as a money spinner for the pub who charge you to see it. Wouldn't bother returning.

There are no waterfalls where I live so it was lovely to see. The waterfall is on private land and the fee is £2.50, £7.50 for a family of four. Seems perfectly reasonable to me. The grass is cut and there are plenty of seats...More

When are people going to stop paying for free things like this . Somebody has fenced off the only entrance to this waterfall and added a turnstile with a fee to enter . Disgusting .

It’s probably about 3 or 4 hundred metres - tops - I’ve taken my mother there and she thought it well worth the walk
