What we have to offer

Please note: All prices are based on hiring the whole place per night.

YHA Ingleton is an old Victorian house, situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, in the stunning village of Ingleton - giving great access to miles of walking routes leading to some of Englands most stunning countryside, caves, waterfalls and mountains.

There is plenty to do for keen walkers, climbers, mountain bikers and cavers including top spots, White Scar Cave, The Waterfalls Walk; starting from Ingleton, Ribblehead Viaduct, the Pennine Way and Gisburn Forest Mountain Bike Trails.

If you are looking for more of a challenge, why not take on the Three Peaks? YHA Ingleton is ideally situated near Ingleborough, the best known of Yorkshire's Three Peaks, making it a great starting point to then take on Pen-y-Ghent and Whernside.

If you are looking for something a little more relaxing, why not hop in the car and take a trip to the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District, the Forest of Bowland or Morecambe Bay - all a short drive from the hostel.
