The Three Peaks & the Yorkshire Dales


For those who like a real challenge, Yorkshire’ superstars, the Three Peaks beckon. The Yorkshire Three Peaks walk is a famous challenge walk in the Yorkshire Dales, taking in three of the highest summits in the area; Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough.

And Falcon Manor makes the ideal base from which to tackle the challenge.

Each of these hills is worthy of spending a day on but each year many walkers attempt to walk all three in less than 12 hours. The route is 24.5 miles (39km) long and has over 5,000 feet (1,600m) of ascent. If you make it in 12 hours or under, you can join the Three Peaks of Yorkshire Club, provided you’ve clocked out and in again at the Pen-y-Ghent Café in Horton-in-Ribblesdale.  Horton-in-Ribblesdale is a popular starting point and has a train station, so save your energy for the walk and leave your car at the hotel.
