There are literally hundreds of paths and walking routes for all levels of fitness and ability in and around Ingleton.
Many of these are accessible direct from the door of the cottage, including the route up Ingleborough, with stunning views, and Whernside, the tallest of the Three Peaks and the highest point in Yorkshire.
The wonderful Ingleton Waterfalls walk is famous across the country, running along the banks of the rivers Twiss and Doe. On this four and a half mile walk you will see some of the best waterfalls in the country. You can take your time and carry a picnic or stop and buy an ice cream along the way. The geology of the Waterfalls walk gives a visual exhibition of all of the rock formations as far back in history as Pre Cambrian era.
See Ingleton Waterfalls Trail for more information.
The limestone flats between Ingleton and Malham are clearly exposed and will accompany you on many of the walks around the local area. You will be able to see exposed caves, magnificent scars, high cliffs and deep gorges together with too many beauty spots to count.
You will find that the cottage is fully equipped with books of walks, maps and other information for suggestions of walks around Ingleton itself, from a gentle stroll to a vigorous day out. If you wish, you can go slightly further afield; either way the information is there for you to choose to do a planned walk or go exploring and discover your own favourite paths and views.
The weather station and free Wifi will help you to plan your day with knowledge of the local weather forecast.
Many people visit the area to undertake the Three Peaks challenge where the summits of Ingleborough, Whernside and Penyghent are all reached on the same day. This is a demanding challenge, and a notable achievement, but each of the summits can also be reached by those who are less fit and the beauty of the views enjoyed if they are tackled separately.
Less strenuous walks can be found around the nearby Giggleswick Scar, Victoria Cave and Stainforth Force.
A little further is the famous Malham Cove and Malham Tarn.
