Cautley Spout, Cumbria


The wild, remote area and a magnificent waterfall at the end of an easy to follow path makes this  short walk an exhilarating experience.

Despite the barren landscape there may be sheep around, but otherwise it's ideal for dogs.

The Cross Keys Temperance Inn (015396 20284‎) is the starting point for the walk, but if you're not planning to patronise the inn there's a few parking spaces in an adjacent lay-by. Dogs aren't allowed in, and if you want a post-walk alcoholic drink you'll have to take it in with you!  The food is very good, and booking is advisable at busy times.

Take the obvious path behind the Inn, bear left and walk downstream alongside the rushing beck. At a meeting of streams turn right and follow the path towards the spout, which you can see already.

Dogs need to be on leads and well under control at the top as there's a mighty drop down from the viewpoint, and a bit of a scamble to get there too.

Return to the Inn the way you came.

From the North East come off the A66 at Brough, pass through Kirkby Stephen and at the top of the hill (after the train station) turn left to Sedbergh on the A683. The Cross Keys is on the right after about 7 miles.
