We visited whilst staying close by. Set right next to the petty village of West Burton & easily accessible by car, the falls made a lovely stop to take pictures followed by a walk in the hills accessible via steps over the bridge. Very relaxing to watch and listen to the sound of the water.

Falls are located in West Burton so an easy walk. Great for pictures and relaxing. Needs more benches. Be careful on the rocks as it can be slippery.

We visit this little gem every time we go to the Dales and it is different every time. This time there was a tree trunk absolutely smothered in toadstools, a great photo opportunity. The falls are easily missed as you drive between two houses, but there is free parking and you are right next to the falls, so no distance at all to walk.

Visited this waterfall whilst on holiday in Skipton. Beautiful waterfall and peaceful to sit on the benches nearby. The village was very picturesque and the Fox and hounds pub was lovely to sit outside of whilst having a soft drink.
Recommended area to visit

Most folks rave about Aysgarth Falls, and rightly so.... BUT West Burton Falls.. aka Cauldron Falls, is truly magnificent both during a torrent and tranquility. Well worth a visit, especially, if you have dogs... Loads of uphill dog walking opportunities from here.

Park on the green and walk back towards the B 6160 and take a right turn to find the falls just up from a little bridge. After enjoying the falls, cross the bridge and walk up some steps that take you into open pasture above the village. There are circular walks out (to Morpeth Lane) or longer walks up (to Morpeth Scar) to reach some fabulous viewpoints. The Knights Templar's chapel is about a mile and a half away and is a historic monument. Small but interesting. Good beer and decent pub grub in the Fox and Hounds. Or have your picnic sitting watching the falls tumble down.

At the north-eastern end of West Burton's beautiful village green, a small lane leads to the waterfalls. Even on a busy day, there is ample room for parking around the village green, but take care to avoid obstructing private access drives. The falls are easily accessible to those with limited mobility and there are plenty of seats for viewing the falls or enjoying a picnic. Here, Walden Beck drops over the upper and lower falls into a deep stone hallow fringed with trees, before flowing down the dale to join Bishopdale Beck and the River Ur. From the viewing area, a small stone bridge, takes a public footpath up above the falls into pasture land. For those who fancy a one mile circular stroll, the public right of way continues through several fields to meet a quiet road heading back to the top of West Burton village green (Town Head). The falls are also known as "Cauldron Falls", though I've not researched the history of the name.

West Burton village is very quaint but the waterfall is very peaceful and nice to sit by for awhile there are benches provided. Easy walk to the falls. Another place to visit is the cat pottery really good especially if your a cat lover.

The falls were so beautiful to look at and walk round. The whole area was a place where you could spend a while relaxing. Well worth the visit
