All reviews lovely walk national trust car park beautiful waterfall steep steps parking fee natural beauty nt members lake district ullswater steamer heavy rain two hours walking boots easy walk worth the climb red squirrels well worth the effort
Called through here on a walk just to see and were very nicely surprised! Lots of paths and things for kids to do and a great sight to see the waterfall itself. Would be worth spending more time here than we did!
Arrived on the ullswater steamer run service from Glenrydding.A beautiful walk up to the top of the falls took about 20 minutes quite steep in places and uneven surface but well worth the effort.Nice National Trust cafe near entrance to car park.
Easily located off the road running around around Ullswater. The walk can be as hard or easy as you choose to make it and the views are well worthwhile.Some of the terrain is taxing so wear appropriate footwear, and I'd recommend checking the route maps...More
You have two main options to walk to Aira Force. Either use the NT car park near to the shore of Ullswater and walk upstream and then back down, or if you want a longer more challenging walk take the track opposite the Royal Hotel...More
The walks around the falls are arguably better than the falls itself. Worth donning stout shoes and spending a few hours strolling. There are interesting natural things to see pretty much wherever you look. Lots of people seemed to avoid the bottom of the falls...More
By U.K. standards an impressive series of falls. Not suitable for anyone unsteady on their feet. No dedicated parking spaces for campers and motorhomes which is odd given there is room within the existing layout.
Absolutely stunning place. The walk is not overly strenuous but does require some exertion - some routes with several steps. You do have to watch your footing due to tree roots & stones though. You can join the walk from 1 of 3 car parks...More
We walked up the route via the stone steps which I found a little challenging due to mobility problems.It was raining so things were a little slippy - you really need to wear the correct footwear up there. It would be good if there were...More
Smallish car-park. Cafe rudimentary with the usual NT fare on offer of moderate value. The attraction of the water falls bring many to the site; but not for the moderately noble as stony and much climbing [steps] but still tricky. Perhaps the NT should adopt...More
Just to add to my initial answer, we went back and headed to the top section via the higher car park and path and you could do that with the pram so can do the bottom and the top as two separate sections if you are visiting... More
Just to add to my initial answer, we went back and headed to the top section via the higher car park and path and you could do that with the pram so can do the bottom and the top as two separate sections if you are visiting with serious walkers, just wouldn’t suggest that you try to complete the whole thing with a pram (apart from anything else once you get as far as you feel you can, you’d need to head back)
