Aira Force Waterfall

No items found.


National Trust pay and display car park at Grid Ref NY 400 200, located off the A592 that runs along the shore of Ullswater, adjacent to the junction with the A5091.


This is a very steep and rocky and uneven pathway and not for those who are unsteady on their feet and unsuitable for pushchairs. The pathway was also slippery in areas. Steep drops to one side of the path in places. Good footwear advisable.


Plenty of water to swim and paddle in, but must be careful of the strong currents of the waterfall in places.

The depth was also very deceiving in places.

About My Walk

This was a beautiful and exciting walk up the waterfall, plenty of places to stop and admire the surrounds and for Mishka to have a paddle.

It was very busy which can be difficult when passing on the narrow tracks.

It seemed to be a great place for all the family to enjoy and have a paddle.

There were large rocks to sit on and dip your toes in the water.

We would recommend this walk.

Facilities: Toilets, tearoom serving light lunches, cakes and hot drinks, and an information kiosk selling snacks and cold drinks, all located within the car park.
