Lovely walk
Nov 2021
For those of you that don’t do hills well, I can recommend going to Janets foss. It is a flat walk from Malham and the scenery is breathtaking. It only has a couple of small inclines so easy on foot. One of the easier walks to enjoy.

The fairies were hiding
Oct 2021
Unfortunately, the fairies must have been hiding. But you can see where they must live when the crowds disappear. Just a normal week day in October, but parking was a problem. Malham is a beautiful Village without the obvious commercial establishments you usually get when places get popular. The area has spectacular scenes, limestone paths and shouldn’t be missed. The problem is people keep returning

a lovely waterfall after a fair hike
Oct 2021
we were told this was worth visiting and duly walked there on a lovely sunny day. the walk was fine until we approached the wooded area where the path became irregular and rather challenging. the falls were fine but difficult to appreciate as it was quite crowded and the path out of this gorge steep and difficult to manage if you have mobility problems. go early to miss the crowds.

Janet Has No Office Hours.
Sep 2021 • Friends
I was told that this is the home of Janet, the supposed Queen of the fairies.

It is ridiculous that she cannot post her office hours online for pilgrims who are on a limited timescale. I had wishes I needed granting that have not been fulfilled. Disgraceful service.

I would advise anyone needing genuine help to try and find it elsewhere from another mystical being until Janet learns how to properly schedule herself.

Waterfall was nice. Bacon butties in Malham amazing. Public toilets in the village a vision of Golgotha. Museum toilets tolerable.

Beautiful place - as they say a ‘must see’.
Oct 2021
The walk is lovely from Malham village, very well signposted. The waterfall and pool are stunning - there are some stones to climb to go on further to Gordale Scar . There is a caterer en route between Janet’s Foss and the Gordale Scar with excellent food

Lovely woodland waterfall
Sep 2021 • Couples
It's a lovely walk from Malham, the route that makes the most sense.

The water flows well and it's a nice view from a well constructed area.

Do note that the rock steps out of the viewing area are quite rough hewn and need mini scramble

Short walk from Malham
Sep 2021
There is a very easy path from Malham to this waterfall. You enter a wooded area before coming across Janets Foss. You can view it from below on some rocks or go to the top to look down on it.

We continued on from here to Gordale scar.

Gorgeous

Stunning! Lovely to have a paddle in, if you’re able to brave the cold. There’s a couple of spots ideal to have a picnic or a quick stop and snack. Lots of photo opps too.
