Relax and Unwind

Whether you’re in the midst of the Coast to Coast walk or perhaps just out for a leisurely saunter through the fabulous ancient woodland, Falling Foss Tea Garden is the perfect place to relax and unwind, enjoy a light lunch, a sumptuous cream tea or perhaps just an ice cream.


Falling Foss Tea Garden is a small but enchanting tea garden set in the grounds of Midge Hall, a tiny 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.

Imagination Runs Wild

For many years this natural beauty spot has been a favourite for children. Let there imagination run wild in the forest, build a den out of bracken & sticks, perhaps visit the Hermitage – a unique cave carved out of stone (just 10 minutes walk from the waterfall) or just relax with a cup of tea while the children enjoy paddling in the beck and playing pooh sticks on the footbridge (pooh sticks provided!).


All food is freshly prepared and homemade cakes & scones are baked on site daily. We use only quality ingredients which are sourced locally wherever possible.
