YHA Ingleton

Greta Tower, Sammy Lane, Ingleton, North Yorkshire, LA6 3EG


Love caves, waterfalls and all things mountainous? YHA Ingleton is a Victorian house sitting on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, surrounded by excellent walking routes and outdoor experiences. The hostel has two lounges for groups to socialise, free Wi-Fi, and grounds to explore. Whether you’re settling down for a film or enjoying a continental beer from the bar, you’re sure to feel welcome.

If you’re hungry after a hard day of caving, climbing or hiking, you can expect to come home to tasty group meals including breakfast, a packed lunch and dinner. We’re fantastic for cycling groups too, offering lots of local knowledge about the routes from our doorstep.

From the pretty village of Ingleton itself to underground attractions like White Scar Caves, there’s plenty for school trips and activity groups to enjoy. Don’t miss the famous Ingleton Waterfalls Trail – it’s a must-see for outdoor lovers and geography field trips alike.  We’re also ideal for climbing groups looking to take on Twisleton Scar or the village’s top quality climbing wall.
