Galleny Force is an attractive waterfall located in a wonderful setting, and isn't too far from Stonthwaite for those which are in the area. Even though it's only a short distance from the nearby campsite, it's still relatively quiet and hidden for a quick dip. It's not the biggest spot to swim in, but it's certainly the most quietest.
Galleny Force are beautiful waterfalls and are a must-visit if you're around the area. However it's worth noting that the paths are very uneven and quite tricky in place, however it's very much worth the trek up the valley to see them!
Stunning. Parked at the camp site £5 all day, the water was so fresh and the whole family enjoyed diving in and having a swim! – Google Review
Since the Galleny Force Waterfall is located right next to a large campsite, you may want to avoid visiting in school holidays if you want some peace and quiet at the falls. Also, if you find the main pool slightly busy, keep walking up the path and you'll find further pools with nobody in!
