Yorkshire Dales Activities: Things to see & do around Ingleton
Nestling under Ingleborough, one of the famous ‘Three Peaks’, the village of Singleton on the edge of The Yorkshire Dales offers a good range of shops including a newsagent, butcher, chemist, gift shops and outdoor shops as well as numerous pubs and places to eat plus a super bakery. Also a Climbing wall and Outdoor swimming pool for the more adventurous!
The centre of the village is pretty with narrow and winding streets, centered on a small market square. The village’s well known White Scar Cave (a mile outside the village on the Hawes road) are open to the public and have a dazzling display of stalactites and stalagmites, caverns and a huge underground lake. Walk the famous Ingleton Waterfalls Trail which takes in some impressive cascades. If you are coming to Ingleton to celebrate a special event with family and friends why not have a handmade bespoke cake made by Lilypad Bakery to mark the occasion. Or what about planning a Pamper Session with the beauty and massage therapist coming to you.
The Dales countryside offers numerous walks and cycle routes, with the famous Three Peaks of Ingleborough, Whernside and Penyghent just a stones throw away. We are about 20mins drive from Gisburn Forest which has superb mountain bike trails for all abilities and beautiful woodland walks aswell. If you like to cycle but dont have room to bring your bike 3 Peak Cycles can help. Maybe you might like the comfort of someone who knows the way, guided walks, help with navigation techniques or even outdoor childrens treasure hunts can be arranged by Settle Wolf Tracks. Perhaps more gentle relaxation is your thing then the Settle to Carlisle railway offers a journey through some of the most spectacular scenery our country has to offer.
This is an excellent location from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales and within easy reach of the Lake District, the West Coast and the Trough of Bowland.
