I have attached a database with 6 tables (main, county, amenities, disability access, mode and species) and I would like to create a form that allows me to:
 
                  select one or more counties from the county table and
                  select one or more amenities from the amenities table and
                  select one or more modes from the mode table

Once I have selected my criteria the form would return all of the waterbody names from the main table that meet the selection.  

I have no idea how to do this..can someone please walk me through the process. I don't really know VB, but I can try to learn it as I go...

Then you picked a project that is not really at a "Beginner" level...

See capricorn1, links first.

Also look into using a Multiselect Listbox to help collect the values to Filter

Finally note that you will have to also consider AND and OR Logic and possibly create a way to set these operators...

See this very basic sample as a start
