Watertop is set in a beautiful area, and what better way to see it than to enjoy some of our scenic walks. The waterfall walk will take you through the trees and along the river from which the farm draws its name, as it rises to the surface only a few miles away.
During summer when the leaves are out and the sun is shining you can stop to enjoy the beautiful views on one of our many benches along the walks.
