Visit the Dales


Cotter Force

One of the National Park's most accessible waterfalls with its specially graded path suitable for pushchairs and wheelchair users. A bench near the falls means you can rest and enjoy the delightful scenery.

From Hawes take the main road - the A684 - towards Sedbergh. After crossing the River Ure on a narrow bridge you will shortly find a lay-by on the right. A path leads from here to the waterfall.
