Ingleton is roughly 25 miles south east from Kendal. It has a really well planned and maintained 4.5 mile circular trail through the beautiful landscape around it which is scattered with waterfalls. Thornton Force is the biggest waterfall on the trail and not to be missed. To use the car park and access some privately owned parts of the full trail there is a small fee of £6 per adult (price correct at July 2015). Although some of the waterfalls can be accessed on foot for free, we would highly recommend paying the fee to support the preservation of the area and take advantage of full access to all of the trail and waterfalls. It isn’t suitable for wheelchairs, pushchairs or very small children though, and has some difficult to navigate muddy and hilly areas.
The village itself is a lively working Yorkshire village, with plenty of places to eat, drink and sleep including a wide choice of B&Bs, guest houses, inns and cottages as well as caravan and camping sites nearby.
There is a particularly useful website at www.ingletonwaterfallstrail.co.uk where you can find out more and plan your visit.
