OverviewA stunning location on a popular bridleway with far reaching views to Ribblehead, Park Fell and Ingleborough. This old agricultural building has been renovated to a very high standard with bedrooms, showers, toilets and drying room on the ground floor and an upstairs open-plan area with exposed beams, excellent kitchen facilities, dining area and seating area with large, comfortable sofas. A small resources room has a good selection of books, maps and games. There is free superfast fibre WiFi but limited mobile phone reception. The Dales High Way long distance path passes the door and the Pennine Journey LDP is just a field away, making it an ideal overnight stop. The Three Peaks can be walked from the door avoiding the crowds at Horton. Plenty of other walking, biking and caving opportunities in the area as well as the Ingleborough NNR across the valley and the limestone pavement of Scales Moor a short walk away. Broadrake is in a fantastic Dark Skies area too.

A perfect venue for DIY workshops
August 28th 2019
Are you looking for somewhere special, but not too expensive, for a residential workshop or retreat? Look no further than Broadrake Bunkbarn, near Ingelton in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
Sympathetically converted from an ancient stone barn to an exceptionally high standard, Broadrake bunkbarn lends itself to a whole variety of residential workshops. The wonderfully large and light first floor living and dining area with its polished oak floor is perfect for yoga, crafting, painting etc. The lovely large lawned area at the front of the barn, with stunning views across to Ribblehead viaduct (of the Settle to Carlisle railway fame) can be used when the weather is good. And for the more messy pursuits there’s a purpose built outdoor studio area that can be used by arrangement. With great value accommodation for up to 20, superfast broadband, stunning scenery and footpaths leading to two pubs what more could you want?
