Accessible bunkhouse sleeping 30 on the Yorkshire 3 Peaks walk close to Ribblehead, ideal for families

Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Old School Bunkhouse, Chapel-le-Dale, Yorkshire, sleeps 15-30 in 5 bedrooms.

Old School Bunkhouse is situated in the Dales National Park in the shadows of Whernside and Ingleborough. It is positioned directly on the route of the Yorkshire 3 Peaks walk and is therefore suitable for groups doing this challenge. The location is remote but has excellent road and rail access. The nearest railway station at Ribblehead is just over a mile away. Here you can also see the famous Ribblehead Viaduct.

The accommodation is ideally set up for walking groups, friends and family groups, climbing groups or people just wanting to relax. The bunkhouse is 100 metres from the nearest pub and is also a short drive away from the town of Ingleton, well regarded for its climbing wall, waterfalls walk, showcave, outdoor swimming pool and local shops and pubs. Further afield are the market towns of Hawes, Settle and Kirkby Lonsdale, the latter two offering access to supermarkets.

The fully heated accommodation is very well equipped to serve up to 30 people and has a large kitchen/diner with a separate lounge with TV and assorted DVDs. There is a payphone at the bunkhouse but no internet or mobile phone reception. However, mobile reception can be obtained a little further up the road.

Each of the 30 beds is supplied with mattress protector, pillow and pillowcase. Cleaning equipment is supplied for groups to leave the bunkhouse 'as they find it'.

All year the same rate applies with no increase for Bank Holidays or school holidays.
