About the local area

Ingleton is a small village in North Yorkshire at the edge of the Yorkshire Dales that is popular with walkers and climbers. It is situated approximately mid-way between Kendal and Skipton and has easy access to the A65, the main road linking Leeds with the Lake District.

The village lies at the foot of Ingleborough, the second highest fell in the Dales. The fell is part of the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge, a competition that involves scaling Pen-y- Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough in less than 12 hours. Ingleborough itself is an easy walk for the average fit person. At its peak, you'll be able to see the coast of the Irish Sea at Morecambe Bay.

Explore the White Scar Caves that lie under Ingleborough. This is Britain's longest cave system with underground streams and waterfalls. There are fascinating geological formations called Witch's Fingers, Devil's Tongue, Arum Lily and the almost lifelike Judge's Head. It takes about an hour and a quarter to tour the caves.

Two rivers meet at Ingleton. The River Twiss flows from Kingsdale and the River Doe flows from Chapel-le-Dale, to form the River Greta. The Waterfalls Trail is a five mile circular trail that sets out from Ingleton and continues along the banks of the Twiss and Doe rivers. It passes through woodland, gorges and a series of waterfalls. The Thornton Force along the River Twist is one of England's most spectacular waterfalls.

The market town of Kirkby Lonsdale is just eight miles away. Hot air balloons from here set out over the Yorkshire Dales to the east, or the Lake District to the west.
