Yorkshire Three Peaks

Checkout some great places to stay..

Booked onto our guided Yorkshire Three Peaks day challenge?

Here are our 5 recommendations for overnight accommodation

Here at Large Outdoors HQ we believe that walking the Yorkshire Three Peaks is a big enough challenge without the stress of having to travel on the day itself to make the 6.30am start time.

Therefore it’s definitely worth thinking about staying overnight close to Horton in Ribblesdale (our start and finish point) on the eve of the big day so you’re well rested and full of beans.

We’ve always preferred to stay in Ingleton, a lovely village just 30 minutes’ drive from Horton in Ribblesdale.

Taking on the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

It’s easy to find, has a Co-op, a bakers and a couple of other little independent shops. Plus, if you’re planning to celebrate post-challenge, there are a couple of nice pubs in the village too.

Staying in Ingelton is only viable for people travelling by car as you will need to drive to the start/finish of the challenge.

Ingleton Hostel –  best value-for-money accommodation in Ingelton. The hostel has a good number of showers and we’ve always found plenty of hot water, but the kitchen can get a little crowded at peak times.  Oh and there’s free WiFi.

The hostel is centrally located in the village and has some parking. However the parking area soon fills up and people frequently double park, so make sure you can get your car out in the morning or, to be on the safe side, park on the road or in the village car park.
