We are fortunate to be less than a mile from the start of the Ingleton Waterfalls Trail. It's a payable 4.5 mile trail, sturdy footwear required.

Some guests come to hike The Yorkshire 3 Peaks, as a personal or group challenge. Many enjoy The Peaks 1 at a time too - a day each for Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-Ghent. More advice about the Yorkshire 3 peaks HERE.

When you book your stay, we'll send you more details about the Waterfalls Trail and the 3 Peaks. Just get in touch if you'd like this beforehand, to help you plan your stay. There are some lovely walks around the Ingleborough Nature Reserve and Ribblehead too.

Start your day with an early breakfast and we can provide a packed lunch so that you can enjoy a full day in the fresh Dales air (charge for lunch).

If the weather has been unkind, we can hang your wet clothes to dry and warm out of your way.

For lots more information about local things to do, dining out and events, see our village website ''
