Walks around Allendale

'Ingleby' is ideally situated for several walks around the 'dale. A selection are available as PDF downloads here and printed versions are provided during your stay:

  Brides Hill This pleasant walk to the north-west of Allendale Town takes in pastureland, woodland and the riverside. A shorter version goes through the hamlet of Thornley Gate before returning via the river.

  Chimneys This walk runs the width of the East Allen valley from the riverside below the village and up a long incline through farmland to the big stone chimneys on Dryburn Moor.

  Peckriding This is a scenic walk through fields and wooded areas and over the footbridge at Peckriding. There is an option to take a short cut, otherwise
the route continues past several farmsteads on the east side of the valley before descending down to the village through fields alongside Lonkley bank.

  Woolley This easy walk through pasture and hay meadows passes old defensive bastle houses at Woolley and Nine Dargue before crossing the
river at the footbridge below Peckriding.

  Moorhouses This short walk offers good sunset views over Allendale from the ruined farmhouse at Moorhouses. A shortcut to take an alternative route means the walk can easily be covered in 40 minutes.

Three more local walks have been mapped by the North Pennines Geopark in conjunction with the award-winning Allendale Caravan park. These walks are:
