Accommodation

Our accommodation for the weekend is the stunning YHA Ingleton, offering our group comfortable accommodation in the heart of a beautiful Yorkshire Dales, surrounded by stunning scenery at every angle. After a long day hiking, we can head back to our accommodation and enjoy a tasty home-cooked meal.

Our accommodation for the trip will be in 4-bed and 6-bed dorms, exclusive to our group. If you’re booking with a friend let us know and we’ll make sure you get a room together. 

NOTE: There is limited car parking at this hostel, and is first come first served.

Food

Our meals for the weekend will be prepared on-site at YHA, for breakfast and dinner. Saturday lunch is not included, as we will be out all day, so please bring something to eat for Saturday lunch, such as a packed lunch. And as this is a challenging hike and we will be out for 10-12 hours, please also consider additional food to keep your energy up throughout the day.
