This Magical Woodland Walk Finishes At A Tea Garden Next To A 30ft Waterfall

The summer holidays are here, and we are all racking our brains on how to keep the kids busy for six weeks! With most of us staycationing this year, we are looking at good old God’s Own Country to provide the entertainment – and tucked away in the North York Moors is the mystical woodland Falling Foss tea garden.

Take a walk through magical woodland to this idyllic tea garden that sits beside a 30ft waterfall by following babbling May Beck. The pool below is perfect for taking a dip on a cool summer’s day. You can either take an excursion through the woods on a two-mile walk or park up in the Falling Foss car park.

Found just 6 miles outside of Whitby, Falling Foss Tea Gardens is situated right next to the stunning waterfall of the same name. The area provides a natural play area, becks to paddle in and woodland trails for you and your kids to enjoy in the woodlands of North Yorkshire.

How do you get down to the waterfall at Falling Foss?

Before you tuck into scones with clotted cream and jam, the waterfall walks is worth it to work up an appetite. The 30ft waterfall sits below the cafe and is a 1.5 hour ciruclar walk starting from May Beck.

The magical woodland walk is a 2-mile circular with shallow waters to paddle in and perfect for a little jaunt although it’s not great for anyone with a pram or wheelchair. The guys at Falling Foss cafe are great for any advice, if you’re unsure.

If you decide to have a go at the walk, there is a great map here.

The rustic setting is the perfect backdrop to one of the most incredible tea rooms in the UK. You can enjoy homemade scones with jam & cream, cakes and hearty bacon butties washed down with barista-style coffee or some classic English tea.

It’s perfect spot for letting your kids play in nature whilst you enjoy a quiet cuppa and a well-deserved rest. Being out in nature is proven to relieve stress and we could all use a bit of stress relief that’s for sure.

On our visit we enjoyed a sarnie with a coffee, crusty bread and with a few olives and of course a nice slap of Rocky Road for that sugar hit.

The tea gardens have a firepit where they sometimes provide free marshmallows for you to toast as well as plenty of other activities for you and your kids. You can also bring your pooch along as they are pet-friendly which is an added bonus.
