Accessible walks nearby

Cotter Force

Cotter Force is one of the most loved waterfalls in the Yorkshire Dales. To this end, it has been made accessible for pushchairs and wheelchairs by the creation of a purpose built track that leads from the roadside parking area to the waterfall.

Aysgarth Falls

A view of the impressive falls at Aysgarth has been made possible because of a purpose-built footpath from the car park to the middle falls. Here there is a viewing platform for wheelchair users. The gate is wide and easy to open and there are benches along the way.

Hawes Town Walk

This is a circular walk through the town, taking is a short stretch of the Pennine Way. 

If using the Minimo Plus we suggest that the steeper section may be too steep for the machine and we advise that the full route is suitable only for a sturdy 4x4 all-terrian wheelchair.  

Our alternative route would start at the Creamery. turning left from the carpark, head uphill to the start of the bridle path. follow the bridlepath all the way to the church.  Here we suggest to turn around and travel back the same way that you came.
