Not as spectacular as waterfalls such as High Force and others, but worth a look nevertheless if you're visiting Wensleydale. Harmby Waterfall is situated almost directly opposite the Pheasant Pub about a mile east of Leyburn, on the A684.

Popped here at the weekend and decided to go see the waterfall. We were expecting to have a little walk around but the drops are very steep. The waterfall was lovely though.

The pathway opposite the pheasant inn, on the right as you face out of the village leads to a very well concealed ravine, not twenty yards from the road. There is the waterfall, clearly audible from the road. volumes of water depend on the recent...More

You wouldn't believe this lovely little waterfall is so close to the main road. You could drive past it, if you were walking you could be forgiven for thinking it was rustling leaves. Stop at the Pheasant inn, buy a drink... cross the road, down...More
