A nice low level walk for all the family with the great waterfall at the end. Lots of wildlife and plants along the way and maybe catch a glimpse of the queen.

From the village of Malham, Janet's Fosse is a gentle stroll through a wooded valley alongside the brook and the masses of wild Garlic. I suppose about a mile to get to a delightful little waterfall, Janet's Fosse, Niagara it ain't but the flow of...More

11/4 mile walk with a good path. Need to climb at the end to get to the waterfall. Pretty though. Not too crowded.

At the tourist information centre I think there were motor homes. There is an additional car park in a field opposite that you would definitely fit on.
