Advice on Cottage Holidays in Clapham, Yorkshire Dales

Clapham Cottages in the conservation area

Within Clapham there is the village church of St. James, a fine looking example of Norman architecture.  At Clapham Railway Station, just over a mile from the village, the old station house is an unusual structure for the locality, being a timber framed building and it is a Grade II listed building.  There is also a village store and a Post Office.

Clapham Church of St James

One of Clapham’s most famous local, natural features is Ingleborough. Along with Whernside and Penyghent, they form the Three Peaks. If you are fairly fit (and suitably equipped and clothed), it’s an enjoyable challenge getting to the summit. There is more than one approach from the village to Ingleborough. Standing at the top brings the reward of superb views.

From the tops to down below, the fascinating local geography and geology can also be appreciated underground. Potholing is a popular pastime in these parts, but ordinary members of the public can get a taste of the world of stalactites and stalagmites in show caves. Ingleborough Cave is one such cave. It’s a safe environment with sympathetic lighting illuminating its wonders. Expert guides lead tours and explain how millions of years have led to the cave as it appears today. The cave can be reached by going through the Ingleborough Estate grounds.  If you are planning on taking advantage of some or all of the activities in this part of Yorkshire then you may want to guarantee yourself some relaxation and pampering by staying in a cottage with a sauna or a hot tub.

Nearby, Gaping Gill holds the record for being the highest unbroken waterfall in England, which drops into the largest pothole in the country. Ingleborough Estate is worth a visit in its own right and the nature trail is an enjoyable walk for a family outing during your self-catering break. Wild flowers, a lake and woodland make up the trail and it is particularly noted for its display of rhododendrons.

Just six miles from Clapham, the market town of Settle is a pleasant day trip for visitors. You can relax with a cuppa in a homely café or make arrangements to ride the steam train on the famous Settle-Carlisle line. Market day is Tuesday (unless it’s a public holiday), with not one but two markets. Local produce, household items and electronic goods go on sale at the Street Market and the indoor market at Victoria Hall.

If you want to get away from the stress of urban life, there is no better sanctuary than North Yorkshire. Clapham is a gateway to the heritage of its people and the natural wonders that make this area rather special.
