If ever there was a magical woodland walk, it’s the 2-mile circular trail through the trees from May Beck to the charming Falling Foss waterfall.
It’s spectacular in autumn when the enchanting woodland colours are at their best and, as well as seeing the 30-foot waterfall, you get the chance to play pooh-sticks from a bridge and investigate the stone cave known as 'The Hermitage', once the secluded home of an 18th-century hermit.
He was happy foraging in the woods for food, fuel and shelter, but lucky visitors today have a far more enticing prospect – the Falling Foss Tea Garden located at the beautifully sited woodland cottage of Midge Hall.
Think homemade cakes and pots of tea served at outdoor tables in a rustic glade – the words ‘dingly-dell’ were never so apt.
