Hen Party Hot Tub

September 27th 2019

Is it even a hen party if you don’t have a hot tub?! We think not.
A recent hen party at The old School Bunkhouse made sure they could relax in style after a long walk in the Yorkshire Dales

Picture it, a long day walking in the Yorkshire Dales followed by a pub lunch. Sounds pretty perfect to us. But a recent hen party topped it off by being able to have a hot soak in the tub looking out onto the amazing views!
It doesn’t matter what the weather is like when there is a hot tub, it’s just the icing on top of the cake for a great weekend.
If it is something you fancy adding to your booking, just let them know at The Old School Bunkhouse and arrangements can be made!


Explore the cave systems of the Yorkshire Dales

September 13th 2019

Caves and potholes including the famous Gaping Ghyll system and the White Scar show cave.

Beneath the rolling hills and pastoral landscape of the Yorkshire Dales, lies an underground community of tunnels, caverns, pools, waterfalls, and squeezes. Lovers of caves understand the contrasting excitement and intimacy of discovering this whole new world, under the footsteps of ordinary people.
