Staying in West Burton, the falls were a short walk from our cottage. They are accessible on foot with minimal effort and offer great photo opportunities! Despite the noise of the water there is a lively atmosphere as yo7 are surrounded by trees and bird song.

This waterfall is also known as cauldron falls. If you only visit one waterfall in the Dales and want somewhere less touristy, these are the falls for you. We visited after a period with lots of rain so they were particularly good The main waterfall drops into a pool, it when cascades under a pretty arched bridge. There's plenty of flat rock and grassy areas and would be a perjswim in the pool below the waterfall. I could have happily spend hours here. There isn't much parking but that means that visitors are limited. I would also reccomend the homemade cake at the local shop.

Also known as Cauldron Falls, this is a hidden Gem in the charming village of West Burton. We walked from nearby Aysgarth (also well worth a visit) through the village to this hidden gem, there was a few families but not overcrowded and the views are stunning, amazing that this is free but there is the option to make a donation which we did. After exploring and being able to get very close (safely) to the waterfall (the water is very refreshing!) we enjoyed a quick pint at The Fox and Hounds in the village. A very enjoyable morning!

We heard some of the major waterfalls get very busy and are expensive; these were quiet and free! Lovely spot in gorgeous village of West Burton which has pub serving morning coffee and then lunch. We did 6mile circular walk along river heading south which was beautiful.
