The walk took about 45minutes. It starts at the path to the right of the salvation hotel. We parked in town for ease. We were able to fit the walk in before dinner. But there were benches at the top where you could eat lunch....More

This is just a stone’s throw from the centre of Ambleside. Pretty much all uphill (which you expect when you’re looking at waterfalls). Well-signed, and decently-maintained tree-lined paths (although can be a tad muddy in places, with quite a few high steps). Some good photo...More

So glad we fitted in a walk to this beautiful location as the bluebells are in full flower. Walked up to both bridges to just stand and admire nature at its finest. The paths are clearly marked and were mostly dry. Walking shoes are a...More

The waterfall is a short walk from the town of Ambleside, you can drive half way through but parking is very limited. There's a path to walk around the waterfall and it's marked by arrows, there is some seating place where you can relax, or...More

It was a lovely walk up, but given the waterfalls near were I live a little disappointing, but fresh air and small clearly marked walk made it worth it

We drove up Stockghyll Lane behind Ambleside Salutation Hotel & Spa, leading to the entrance of Stock Ghyll Force. There are two or three parking lots by the roadside, with a disc parking notice. A short distance from the entrance was a small waterfall. Further...More

We walked to the falls after taking the ferry from Bowness to Ambleside. It begins on a road and then turns into a wooded trail with several little bridges and falls at the end. It’s very easy and quite pretty. Heavily trafficked.

Very short walk, nice to do if you are in the neighborhood already. I would not say it is worth taking a long car ride for. It is a nice but small waterfall. As far as I could tell there is no walk/ hike tour...More

Walked up from Ambleside and took plenty of selfies up here with the waterfall in full flow. Crossed the bridge and got lost, I think our guide book is out of date. Ended up climbing a fence onto the road and adding a few miles...More
