Overview & description

Open to the public since 1952 and situated in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, the most idyllic location. Surrounded by the River Wharfe, with beautiful views for miles, there's really nowhere better to spend a day out with family & friends.

Escape the hustle and bustle and get back to nature. Whether you want to play with the kids in the river or just relax with friends, you'll find that this is the place to visit! Enjoy a yummy BBQ lunch followed by a delicious Yorkshire Dales Ice Cream and make the most of the beautiful sunshine this summer!

*Please note, YDIC are not always guaranteed to be on site. Weather dependent.

Parking is just £5/car for the whole day. Gates don't close until 8pm, so there's plenty of time to stay, play & make a day of it.  (Please note, there is no entry after 5.30pm)

If you fancy a nice cool pint, our local pub, The Red Lion, is just a short stroll over the bridge.

We have Gents, Ladies, Disabled & Baby-Change facilities on-site & everything you could need for the day is so close by.

Please be aware, as we're just a field, we don't have any card payment facilities available. Please bring cash with you, as the nearest cash machine is in Grassington (4 miles away).

Take your family and friends on a day out to remember.
