Glorious weather today, so I can’t stop clicking my camera!
Gauber bunk barn at Ribblehead is in a great location. You’ll know from the name that its close (a 15 minute walk) from the iconic Ribblehead Viaduct on the beautiful Settle-Carlisle line. I recall travelling in my youth in an atmospheric corridor-train on this line and the owners of the hostel similarly celebrate the railway by posting smashing shots of steam trains chugging along it on their socials whenever they can. If you’ve seen the 2016 drama Jericho, you’ll know a bit about the history of the viaduct. Local historian provide guided walks with further information.
If scenic railways aren’t your cup of tea, and I’ll grant that its a bit of a niche thing, then how about the wealth of amazing landscape. With the Yorkshire Dales just over there and White Scar Caves, Ingleton Waterfalls, The Three Peaks and Malham Cove and environs. Their website has a lovely gallery of photographs which will only serve to entice you more.
This attractive, comfortable bunkbarn has 3 rooms and sleeps 12. Downstairs is a large convivial dining kitchen with wood burning stove and a cavernous wooden table perfect for evening gatherings.
