Hard to fault this for a beauty spot. I only give it 4 stars because there are bigger waterfalls but really it is a very scenic stretch of river including the waterfall. It is easy to walk there to see it though it is a little hidden away. It is barely 5 minutes walk from the village green. You can scramble around on rocks if you like but it is not necessary and there are footpaths leading off somewhere if you want to go further.

West Burton is a very scenic dales village. Apart from the waterfall there are no other "attractions" as such but it is a pleasant place with its green, stocks and the proverbial "olde worlde" charm. I had a good meal at the Fox and Hounds pub.

The waterfall is beautiful and very accessible. Lovely village to visit. Great place for a paddle and a picnic.

Only a small falls but set in a lovely village and there's a park and football goals on the green x the fox and hounds pub overlooks this so you can have a drink in the sun while the kids are playing!

We visited this village 09-01-14 after heavy overnight rain, the river was up and the falls were full giving a dramatic scene. West Burton is easy to find and although restrictions on parking are in force you will find somewhere to park. Access to the falls is ver easy and you can even get along side them. there is a green with seats around it so well worth a visit.
