Holme Force | Hidden Waterfall in Lake District, England

Updated: Jan 2

The hike to Holme Force can be quite challenging for some individuals, however it is definitely worth it. It is a stunning waterfall and is still fairly unknown to the majority of people so you'll more than likely have the whole place to yourself.

Holme Force is often missed by people who visit Holme Woods and follow the path around the lake (I guess that's why they call it a hidden gem!). Interestingly, the waterfall actually drops down in several cascades between Burnbank Fell and Carling Knott.

Loweswater is a beautiful place and the waterfall was quite stunning although the walk up was a little bit steep it was worth it. Parking was good and the scenery was amazing.– Google Review
