Ingleton is just 6 miles from Kirkby Lonsdale, making the Sun Inn a great hotel base for exploring Ingleton and the Yorkshire Dales. As there are few Ingleton hotels, an overnight stay in Kirkby Lonsdale is ideal for exploring the countryside around Ingleton, where North Yorkshire meets Cumbria and Lancashire.
A North Yorkshire village set on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Ingleton is Kirkby Lonsdale’s quieter neighbour, although there are still plenty of things to see and places to visit during an overnight stay at the Sun Inn.
After a hearty breakfast, hop over the border to North Yorkshire for a day trip to Ingleton Waterfalls Trail. Open seven days a week, a walk around the 8km (4 mile) Ingleton Waterfalls Trail boasts some of the most spectacular waterfall and woodland scenery in the North of England. The circular route starts in the centre of the Ingleton and there’s also a refreshment stop part-way round the trail.
England’s longest show cave, White Scar Cave, is also within easy reach of Kirkby Lonsdale and the Sun Inn. At 90 metres (300 feet) long, visitors can marvel at the natural beauty of this hidden world deep underneath Ingleton.
In Ingleton itself, Frumenty and Fluffin is a delightful vintage tea room which serves the most incredible home-baked cakes. Guests could also visit Ingleton Pottery, the longest established working pottery in the Yorkshire Dales.
Meanwhile, looming high above Ingleton is Ingleborough, the best known of the Yorkshire Dales Three Peaks. For guests doing the Yorkshire Dales Three Peaks Challenge, the Sun Inn in Kirkby Lonsdale is perfectly placed for comfortable bed and breakfast accommodation close to Ingleton and the start of this epic outdoor adventure.
