Relax, Explore, Active or Extreme
Whatever escape you're looking for; relaxing by the fire watching shooting stars, leisurely stroll to a great eatery or adventurous activity to let off steam. For a very small village we have so much to offer, don't forget to book ahead, some of the pubs and activities can be booked up well in advance.
Mountains, forests and rough terrain, we have a variety of areas to test your bike adrenaline.
Escape Bike shop - If you want to use your own power to get out and about then Escape Bikes can offer mountain bike hire and have organised trail rides you can join.
The Land of Caves and Waterfalls has the perfect walk for you whether you're looking for a stroll, hike or marathon.
Westhouse Walks - Gentle strolls between 3 and 5 miles over beautiful countryside, starting from the site entrance on well marked paths.
Ingleton Waterfall Trail - a more ambitious 5 mile strenuous hike up stone steps, through forest paths, over river bridges past 6 sets of stunning waterfalls. Wear walking boots, take water and a little towel.
3 Peaks - The Yorkshire three peaks can be tackled from Ingleton giving a 30 mile marathon route including 1500m of climbing up Ingleborough, Pen-y-Ghent and Whernside. Or you could just try Ingleborough to give you a taste before committing to all three! Make sure you have planned your route carefully, have plenty of food and clothing supplies as it gets very cold at the top.
Inglesport - If you’re an experienced caver, climber or swimmer then head to Inglesport for some expert local knowledge and kit hire or purchase.
Saaig - 3 peaks, navigate, night walks, hill climbs, abseiling and exploring caves; SAAIG Outdoors can tailor trips to suit your requirements or join one of their activity days.
Whitescar caves - If those options are a bit out of your comfort zone then why not start your adventure underground at the England’s longest show cave, safe for all the family. The cave offers guided tours every hour in peak season.
Vertical skills - Caving, climbing, abseiling and canyoning. The Yorkshire dales are packing with hidden adventures.
