Ingleborough is one of the famous Yorkshire Three Peaks and recently I hiked up Ingleborough to complete walking all of the Three Peaks.
I previously walked up the other two Peaks, Pen-y-Ghent and Whernside but didn’t make it up Ingleborough on that occasion. Click here to read about the walk from the day.
I filmed our walk up Ingleborough and afternoon in Ingleton as part of my day in the life series here:
We set off early to drive to the Yorkshire Dales where we could park the car in Ingleton. There is a large car park in the centre of the village with toilets and tourist information.
Walking Ingleborough from Ingleton
Walking to Ingleborough is easy to navigate and an easy path upwards. There are some challenging parts where it was a bit steeper. There was a tiny amount of scrambling towards the top but nothing bad.
On the summit of Ingleborough, we had an obligatory photo at the trig point.
There wasn’t much of a view that day and it was quite windy. We had a quick stop at one of the protected seats at the top before going back down. We were fortunate that at the farm there was a charity cake sale which meant we could stop for cake and a drink which was very much appreciated!
A night in Ingleton
Once we got back into Ingleton we checked into The Craven Heifer where we were staying for the night. It’s a nice pub downstairs and we sat outside and ate some chips which were delicious!
Our room was nice, modern and clean. We chilled for a little while in the room, we needed to rest our legs after walking to the top of a Yorkshire peak.
In the evening, we had booked to go to a local restaurant and went for tapas at La Cascada. It’s a small and cosy restaurant and the food was incredible. We enjoyed a great selection of tapas and everything was so good, I would love to eat it all again!
We had a drink back at The Craven Heifer before it was time for a good nights sleep!
