About our home

Our lovely Edwardian home is in the centre of the popular Yorkshire Dales village of Ingleton. It's perfect for a family looking for a holiday in the Dales and Lake District.

From your door, you can go straight up the mountain, swim in the heated village pool (summer months only) or walk the famous Ingleton Waterfalls Trail.

It's private and quiet, with no traffic, but only a minute to the village shops.

It's built high on the river bank next to the village church, facing west, so you can hear the water and see the woodland overlooking the river. The view is special, and the sunsets are occasionally spectacular.

The whole house was renovated in 2015. Good size kitchen-diner, and lovely sitting room with wood burning stove.

We're all set up for kids. The riverside park, with play area, village pool, and river for paddling, surrounds the bottom of the house.

There are four large bedrooms, so you can comfortably sleep six to eight people.

1. Super-king bed
2. King bed, en-suite
3. Double bed
4. Single bed

You can comfortably sit six at the kitchen table (more if you squash up; we could do with a bigger table). There are two plumbed showers and four WCs.

The terraced garden is work-in-progress, but there's a contained yard / sun terrace (if you're lucky!).

- We're a shoes-off house (please bring your slippers!).
- Sorry, no pets.
- We don't have a TV, but the Wifi is good.
- OK, the swimming pool isn't really our pool.... :-) It's owned and run by the village - but it's literally next to our house so you can walk there in your towel! Search for 'Ingleton Pool'.
- Due to the stairs and access, our house isn't really suitable for people with restricted mobility.
- Our house is very clean and comfortable. We'll treat your home just like ours, promise!

>>> INGLETON has been named the nation’s second favourite village 2019! In the "hotly contested" annual BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards, while North Yorkshire as a whole won the award for favourite holiday destination.

There's so much to do:

- Heated outdoor swimming pool
- Indoor climbing wall
- Pump track for kids
- Mountain bike hire available
- Waterfall walk
- Award-winning village bakery
- Guided outdoor activities for families with Cave & Canyon
- White Scar and Ingleborough show caves
- Ribblehead viaduct and Settle-Carlisle railway
...and so much more.

The Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Morecambe Bay and the Forest of Bowland are all within driving range for day trips. We can provide tailored walks and days out for your family.
