Falling Foss is a delightful waterfall, accessed through woodland on either side of Littlebeck and Maybeck. By car, it is on the B1416 road approximately four miles south of Whitby, passing over the bridge through Ruswarp and on to the Red Gate bend. Follow the sign for the parking (Sneaton Forest Car Park) and the picnic area. In the woods nearby, and accessed via a footpath is Midge Hall, a gamekeeper's cottage built in the 1780s and recently renovated in 2008, as Falling Foss Tea Gardens. The Tea Gardens open April to October.
Parking The nearest car park is the Forestry Commission Car Park at Falling Foss, this is just a short walk (5 mins) from the Tea Garden & Waterfall, it's free to park but fills up early in the day during peak season. Often, in summer, the local farmer offers overflow parking in a field just before you get to the Forestry Commission Car Park, this makes for a longer walk (approx. 15 mins) and currently costs £3 for the day.
Park up and wander down hill to the waterfall and the tea room. We took the track to the left and wandered by the stream in the woods for quite some time on the clearly marked paths, but the highlight was the cafe. We sat out side with the dogs, and ordered from the little hut which sells delicious food!
