Ingleton is a beautiful Yorkshire Dales village, nestled on the lower slopes of Ingleborough, one of Yorkshire’s famous Three Peaks. Ingleton has a rich and diverse history from mining, railways and textiles to connections with authors such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Michael Moorcock.
You will always receive a typically warm North Yorkshire welcome in Ingleton, which is located between the market towns of Settle, Kirkby Lonsdale and Hawes, lying close to the borders of North Yorkshire, Cumbria and Lancashire.
Ingleton boasts some lovely independent shops, cafés and pubs, plus it is home to the oldest operating pottery in the Yorkshire Dales.
Ingleton also has a challenging indoor climbing and bouldering wall, cycle pump track, outdoor seasonal swimming pool and children’s riverside play area.
There are many walks in the area, including the famous waterfalls trail and an opportunity to explore underground at White Scar Caves or by hiring one of the local guides to explore some of the extensive caving systems in the area.
The impressive Ribblehead Viaduct is approximately 10 minutes’ drive from the village centre and definitely worth a visit to admire this feat of engineering on one of the most scenic railway lines in the country.
For the more energetic there are some excellent road and mountain bike routes to explore. There are lots of planned activities throughout the year too, which you may want to take part or get involved in.
There is a wide range of places to eat out, including traditional inns or restaurants. With so much to see in the area and an annual events calendar, you may want to stay over and there’s a choice of places including camp sites, inns, bed and breakfasts, caravan sites, hostel and bunk barns.
There really is something for all tastes. More details of what’s on throughout the year can be found at www.thisisingleton.co.uk.
For those either currently visiting or intending to visit, we aim to be an excellent resource, with detailed listings for accommodation, places to eat and drink and things to see and do. We don't leave it there - whilst on holiday you could need a dentist, doctor, vet or optician. We offer details of where to find some of these too. In addition we provide weather information, transport options and even places you can recharge an electric vehicle.
