The Impressive Falling Foss Waterfall on May Beck has a drop of 30 feet and is viewed from a pathway. Falling Foss lies deep in the heart of Little Beck Wood which is walked through by all long distance Coast to Coast walkers. The Hermitage, a cave carved out of stone is just 10 minutes walk from the waterfall.
Falling Foss Tea Garden, situated around 5 miles from Whitby, is a small but beautiful tea garden set in the grounds of Midge Hall, a small cottage which nestles at the top of the magnificent Falling Foss Waterfall in the heart of Sneaton Forest.
The property was originally built as a game keepers cottage in the late 1780's and was subsequently opened as a tea garden in the early 1900's. Unfortunately, in the 1960's the property was abandoned and after a period of 50 years became derelict and unloved. Steph & Jack Newman bought Midge Hall in spring 2008 and, after completing the renovation works on the property, re-opened the Tea Garden for business once again in July 2008. For many years this natural beauty spot has been a favourite for children.
