Located along the main hiking ascent route of Whernside - one of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks. It is estimated that over 200,000 people attempt the 3 Peaks Challenge each year, with many others tackling Whernside in isolation: a high footfall passing the cottage every year. Adjacent to the Settle to Carlisle railway line and just up from the spectacular Ribblehead Viaduct, the area is also a magnet for train buffs and photographers. The limstone karst scenery and extensive moorland is a draw for outdoor enthusiasts, seeking unique hiking, cycling and caving adventures. The property is approx. 12 miles from the town of Hawes and 7 miles to Ingleton.
