    Yorkshire Dales Cottages for New Year

    December 3, 2013 at 6:08 pm

    Yorkshire Dales Cottages New Year

    Stylish and cosy base for doing The Three Peaks – or just exploring lovely Ingleton.


    In the 30 or so years since I first used to visit it, Ingleton has moved on somewhat – from what, if I’m totally honest, was a rather harsh Dales working village, to a charming touristy sort of place, with plenty of little Tea-Rooms, Cafes, Pubs and the like. What remains however is the beautiful scenery all around, ranging from that along the river on the “Waterfall Walk”, or up on the Fells, to Ingleborough or beyond.

    The quality of accommodation has also moved on from the days when we used to base ourselves for The Three Peaks Walk in a pub with very basic rooms, and hot water if you were really lucky! Invariably good beer though, so mustn’t complain.

    Nowadays though, I think I’d rather go here, to Beechtree Cottages just outside Ingleton itself. These luxury Yorkshire Dales cottages are well-equipped, and furnished with a great sense of style – including the all-important wood burning stoves.

    And the great news is, they have some availability for New Year, and it’s reduced by up to 25%!

    Maple Cottage shown above sleeps 5 people, and for five nights commencing Sunday 29th December, the cost is just £740 rather than the usual £920. Cottage details

    Alternatively, if you are just 4 people, Holly Cottage on the same site sleeps four people, and has been reduced by almost 25%, to just £640 for the same 5 nights. Offer details
