Rutter Force
Rutter Force
One of the most scenic (and easily accessible) of all Cumbrian waterfalls. Rutter Force is a horseshoe shaped waterfall on Hoff Beck, near Appleby-in-Westmorland, in the Eden Valley.
Immediately beside the waterfall is an old mill, with a restored waterwheel. The mill is no longer a working mill, but has been converted into holiday accommodation. The best view of Rutter Force is from a narrow footbridge across the beck, which has been constructed a few feet upstream of a ford for automobiles. The setting is superb, and it is well worth a visit.

If you prefer to arrive under your own power ther are footpaths leading along the River Eden from Appleby that will lead you to the falls.
