Ingleton is a beautiful Yorkshire Dales village nestled on the lower slopes of Ingleborough, one of Yorkshire’s famous Three Peaks.
Turn off the A65 and you will find yourself in the pretty village centre with a variety of shops, cafes and restaurants to explore and enjoy.
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. We are proud that Ingleton was voted as runner-up in the Countryfile Magazine Best Village award 2019 and was the only village in Yorkshire to make the shortlist.
For the more energetic, there are some excellent road and mountain bike routes to explore.
There are many walks around the Ingleton area to enjoy. More details can be found on our ‘Things to do’ page. An example of a walk route that takes in the village is ‘A Pennine Journey’, an updated version of Wainwright’s challenging circular walk.

Walking leaflets can be found in many of the shops and also in the Tourist Information Centre. More details of the long distance ‘A Pennine Journey’ can be found here: Pennine Journey Website
