Ingleton

27th to 29th October 2019

As our house move drags on and on, we thought we'd take a break from packing and squeeze in a quick trip.  We had to go back to our new storage site near Lancaster anyway, to pick up D's phone.  We thought about going Barnard Castle or Hawes, but then we came across Thornbrook Barn touring caravan site, which is just outside the village of Ingleton, so quite a bit nearer.  Our second new site of the year.


Sunday


A couple of days off work, so a Sunday start.  It's great not having to tow the caravan all the way, and the caravan was ready and waiting when we got to the storage site.  The journey from there to Ingleton only took just over half an hour.

Wow, what a great site.  All of the pitches have hedges around them, the toilets and showers are excellent and there are great views from the site.  The only negative would be road noise - it's just off the A65 - but apart from the odd motorbike it didn't bother us.

There is a farm shop near the site, so we went there and picked up a few bits before heading into Ingleton, which is less than a mile away.  Ingleton is an okay sort of village.  Some of the pubs didn't look very inviting, but we liked the Old Post Office, which is a micropub, and the Masons freehouse.  We wanted Sunday roasts but they were all sold out, so we had to settle for a steak and a lamb Henry.



Monday

After a very cold night it was crisp and clear in the morning...very frosty first thing.


The plan for today was to do to the Ingleton waterfalls trail, which is a walk of about 4.5 miles.  We stopped off on the way to have a look at St Oswalds church, which is where Arthur Conan Doyle got married.


The waterfalls trail is a nice walk, well worth the £7 you have to pay to get in.  Plenty of waterfalls, of course, but also a stretch of open countryside.  The weather helped , lovely blue skies all the way.







We stopped off the the Marton Arms on the way back, which is opposite St Oswalds church.  The nearest pub to the site, the plan was to return later but we decided to have a night in the caravan instead.  Well, it was another very cold night!

Tuesday

A short journey back to the storage site with the caravan, then the rest of the journey flew by without having to tow it.

We really liked Thornbrook Barn and will definitely be back next year.

Coming soon...

That's probably it for this year, we have drained all the water out and "winterized" the caravan.  We might try and squeeze a trip in in December if we have time and the weather is ok,..
