Where two rivers meet in the shadows of Ingleborough, one of Yorkshire's Three Peaks, this charming market town features some lovely Ingleton cottages.
Natural attractions abound and whether you explore above or below ground, expect amazing adventures. Let's start with the mysterious world of stalagmites and stalactites in White Scar Cave, the UK's longest show cave! Discover underground streams, waterfalls, pre-historic mud pools, the enormous Battlefield Cavern and the remarkably life-like Judge's Head stalagmite. More subterranean excitement is on offer at Ingleborough Cave while, if your Ingleton cottage holiday falls over Whit or August bank holiday, do consider booking a descent into the extraordinary Gaping Gill - a legendary cave that's the size of York Minster!
Walks from your Ingleton cottage
Of course, if fresh air and sweeping skies are more your thing, Ingleton is a gateway to Yorkshire's stunning limestone Dales - a paradise for walkers, climbers and mountain bikers alike. Test your stamina on the Three Peaks Challenge, guaranteeing twenty-five miles of mind-boggling scenery. Or opt for the much gentler Waterfalls Trail at Ingleton Waterfalls, a lovely circular route through ancient woods, featuring stunning watery cascades including the famous Thornton Force.
Back in town explore Ingleton's winding streets lined with gift shops, galleries and cosy tearooms. There's a market every Friday, a great children's playground, an open-air swimming pool right by the river and Ingleton Pottery - a good place for keepsakes. What else? The Settle-Carlisle Railway just a short drive away and interesting festivals from folk to Wild West!
