Secret Yorkshire Walks with Kids
Walking is one of our favourite family activities and growing up I loved the book The Secret Garden. So when I saw this article, “, by the National Trust, I knew I had to give it a read. I was happy to find that two of the walks on their list are ‘hidden’ waterfalls in Yorkshire. nly Find On Foot”
The first walk is to a waterfall above Buckden, Upper Wharfedale, where you can actually stand behind the waterfall. The second walk is to another waterfall, Janet’s Foss waterfall in Malham, Yorkshire Dales. The area includes caves and trees which hide the waterfall from view. According to National Trust volunteer Jessica Swales, the autumn is a beautiful time to visit the falls.
For more information on the walks see theon the National Trust website. It makes me want to get out the boots, baby carriers and pack flasks of soup and cocoa for a picnic lunch! (Or more likely cold sandwiches and stop for lattes but that sounds pretty great too!)
If anyone has walked to either one of these places with kids I’d love to hear about it. Hopefully I’ll be able to give my own personal report before winter sets in this year!
