Local Area

Ingleton sits perfectly on the edge of The Yorkshire Dales National Park. It borders Cumbria, with Windermere & The Lake District just a 40 minute drive away and in the other direction borders Lancashire with the unspoilt Forest of Bowland, an area of Outstanding National Beauty.

There are numerous Market Towns & picture postcard villages nearby & a wide variety of walks to suit all abilities.

The iconic locations of Malham Cove the Ribblehead viaduct and the Yorkshire Three Peaks are a short drive away.

A slightly longer drive takes you over Buttertubs pass, which links Wensleydale and Swaledale and was one of the climbs when the Tour de France came to Yorkshire in 2013.
