We really enjoyed our stay in Ingleton. Autumn (7yr old almost 8, Granddaughter) remained excited about her holiday throughout and when we handed her back to Mummy, the whole adventure was given in great detail and enthusiasm. We hoped to go into White Scar Cave but the flash flood put paid to that. Autumn was excited by the flooding and the water gushing out of the cave. The “wow” from seeing all the swollen streams made her day too. We also did some Geocaching around the area. Autumn does that with her Mummy and knows how to find them with the help of gps and an app on her phone (only used for the geocache). If you want to know a bit about Geocaching, look at this site, https://www.geocaching.com/play We visited Ribblehead Viaduct, Autumn much impressed by that. Malham and Janet’s Foss impressed her greatly and she studied the rocks and flowers. She also enjoyed an hour in the Ingleton Swimming Pool. On the way home we visited RSPB Leighton Moss, where we had lunch before walking around the site. Autumn enjoyed 2 children’s activities while there. She also enjoyed the bird watching and recorded her observations. I do bird watching with her and we started when she was much younger. I asked Autumn which part of the holiday was the most special? We got a very diplomatic answer of, "It was all so special she could not pick one part out.” Thank you for your welcome and gifts, we enjoyed them.

We were 7 (3 adults and 4 children) and there was no problem with the house , it suited our needs perfectly. The house was clean and well-maintained as well. The house is not only used for renting but the owner does live in the house when it is not being used . We visited a number of places and were all pleasantly surprised by all of them. The children had lots of fun and can't wait to come again! The landlord is also very welcoming and friendly.She gave excellent advice on places to visit .Overall we had a lovely time and I would definitely recommended this anyone with a family and loves the nature.
