As national Trust members, we were able to get free parking in the car park, which was great, however, if we had to pay, it would have been well worth it.

Aira force was a lovely walk and a real treat. We were lucky to have great weather the day that we went. When we followed the initial walk to the falls, I think we may have done it the opposite way from many others as most people we met were travelling in the opposite direction. I have to admit that this suited me fine, as I felt that our climb was less steep than it would have been the opposite way (and it was hot). Maybe something to ask the National Trust staff at the hut on the way in if you have difficulty with steep climbing, as some areas may be challenging for some people if having to climb up rather than go down.

Waterfalls and surroundings were stunning, and everyone we met seemed to be in awe of the place, in the same way that we were. I'd say allow a good hour and a half to two hours to enjoy it fully, and be able to stop and just absorb it on the way.

Not to be missed in my humble opinion.

Gentle walk uphill through leafy woodlands. Saw a Yew tree that must be very ancient. Lovely waterfalls, tho low at the moment due to the current sunny, but dry conditions. Well worth a visit.

Absolutely stunning! Options of length of walks to do that cater for all capabilities and if you go right to the top you will not be disappointed with the view

Easy to park and free for National Trust members. Lovely Tea shop with cake and sandwiches as well as hot food and ice cream. Its not a massive walk up to see the waterfall so is suitable for everyone, but at the moment as it is summer there was not very much water. But a nice trip all the same.
