Suitable for all ages, this is a lovely little walk. You can then continue onto Gordale Scar and/or Malham Cove. Janet's Foss itself was peaceful and beautiful, if a bit smaller than I was expecting.

This is a wonderful little beauty spot, which is serene and so relaxing, and only a short walk from the village. It would be a pity to visit Malham and not experience one of its little wonders. Well worth the trip.

We visited Janet’s Foss at the end of our walk which had incorporated Malham Cove, Malham Tarn and Goredale Scar. As waterfalls go, it’s not huge or spectacular but it’s in a nice peaceful location. It’s an attraction where I can see people on a...More

We started from Malham to do a circular walk. Easy walk and very picturesque through the woods until you reach the amazing waterfall Janet’s Foss. As the sun came out and glistened on the water I can only describe it as a magical place. It...More

It's easy to reach Janet's Foss from Malham by following a level path along the stream. After spending a few days in the Yorkshire Dales where we had seem many impressive waterfalls, including the one nearby in Gordale Scar, this one was a bit disappointing...More

We visited this after visiting Malham cove and climbing all the way to the top so understandably we were a bit tired by the time we got here. However, I am so glad we made it here. What a beautiful little valley, exploding with patches...More
