A splendid place for a short walk from the village to the waterfall, a distance of 1.5 miles. Quite muddy when my wife and I did it on 24 March but the day was fine and sunny. You are as close to the river as you can be without falling in and it was very full from endless rain when... More

Had a lovely walk from Bellingham up to the Linn. The walk was muddy but was to be expected at this time of year, good footwear needed. It is not really a child friendly walk but for us it was a really good stretch of the legs with amazing views of the waterfall.

A beautiful walk through a wooded gorge with a stunning waterfall at the end. It will be even more beautiful when the bluebells are out in a few weeks time. Highly recommend, worth the effort!

There is free and convenient parking right at the entrance to this walk. We went during the week in early March and there was plenty of space but parking is limited to about 9 spaces so would expect it would be busy during peak season. There is an electric vehicle charging facility, which was surprising but ideal for those with... More

This is one of the prettiest walks you could find. Managed to make it in to a longer walk by leaving the valley and looping out the top and following the Pennine Way back to Bellingham, but then still only 6 miles. For a 3 mile round trip this has a lot to offer, highly recommended

The Hareshaw is a burn which comes off the Northumberland fells and eventually joins the River North Tyne. The Linn is the falls and pool at the top of the walk. The area is an SSSI because of the unique ferns, mosses and worts that are a main feature. The walking underfoot is easy on a mostly man managed path... More

Lovely walk up the stream from a free car park to a spectacular waterfall. The path is well made with lots of bridges and views

Lovely waterfall at the end of the walk. Wear good boots as it is a muddy walk! Very enjoyable though as when you reach the waterfall you will be glad you decided to go on this walk

In December, on either bright frosty or damp wet days, this walk is more challenging than you might think, due to slippery paths, wet leaves underfoot, rocky steps, no handrails along most of the path, and ups and downs. However, if you can make it, and it is absolutely not wheelchair accessible or suitable for those with limited mobility, it... More

Beautiful walk on a bright cold November afternoon. Although a little slippy underfoot due to the ice and fallen leaves what a fabulous walk, there were a couple of small uphill bits but there were plenty of stopping point if needed. The views around every turn were stunning, I can't wait to go back in the spring
