Yorkshire 3 Peaks (and Cheese) Challenge Overview

Like hiking? Like cheese?

Great! We have the perfect weekend lined up for you, book your place here!

Arrival on evening of Friday 13th August 2021 for a welcome meal and stunning views across the Ribblehead Viaduct.

Tackle the 12 hour Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge on Saturday 14th August with support crew and a qualified Mountain Leader so you can focus on enjoying the hike.

Recover like a professional with a visit to the Wensleydale Creamery in nearby Hawes. We'll have a cheese making demo and afterwards you can visit the cheese museum and sample approximately 20 different cheeses (local beers and ice creams are available too). We'll round the weekend off with a final team meal for a Sunday Carvery (veggie options available). We'd also highly recommend a stroll around the stunning market town of Hawes before you head back home for a well earned rest.

Friday 13th August 2021:


We'd recommend aiming to arrive by 7pm so you can join us for dinner. We'll cook a pasta meal to eat at around 7.30pm - a great way to get to know your new friends and to have a chat about the challenge ahead. The accommodation is very modern and has excellent views our across the gorgeous Ribblehead Viaduct, making a great spot for a sun-downer.

Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge

The Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge is a 24 mile circular walking route within the spectacular Yorkshire Dales National Park. The route includes Yorkshire's 3 highest peaks;

Ingleborough (723m/2,372ft);

 Pen-y-ghent (694m/2,227ft); and

Whernside (736m/2,415ft).

The 'Challenge' is to complete the route within 12 hours.

We provide Mountain Leaders and support (water and snack resupply).

This hike is achievable for almost anyone that is prepared to put in some preparation work over the summer to build up to this challenge, but you should not underestimate it, it is a challenging day out. We highly recommend you undertake a number of day hikes prior to the event. If you are prepared, this is a beautiful, social and sometimes boggy event for someone looking to challenge themselves in 2021!

We have beautifully converted barn accommodation on the route, with stunning views of the Ribblehead Viaduct, where we'll stay on the Friday and Saturday nights. This means that you won't have to worry about any logistics on the day of the event, and gives us somewhere comfortable to return to after conquering the peaks! 

Sunday 15th August 2021:

Wensleydale Creamery

After a hard day's trekking on Sunday, we'll recover like professionals with a visit to the nearby Wensleydale Creamery. Wallace and Gromit's favourite cheese is Wensleydale, and you'll get to find why out for yourself! We'll enjoy a cheese making demonstration, visit the cheese museum and we'll get to sample around 20 different cheeses, all made on site. There's also various ice creams you can enjoy from the creamery, as well as some local craft beers to celebrate your Grand Day Out. We'll end the weekend with a Sunday Carvery (vegetarian options available) before the weekend officially ends. However, as we're in the stunning market town of Hawes, I would highly recommend a wander around (or even a walk if you're up to it!) before making your way home for a well earned rest after an amazing weekend of hiking, cheese and new friends!

Please note that, whilst we aim to provide the activities listed above, occasionally they may be subject to change at short notice due to factors such as weather conditions and the abilities of the group.
