Discover How Stean Gorge
Step into nature and discover How Stean Gorge. Wander along the footpaths, negotiate the wobbly bridges and venture through caves. As you make your way along the spectacular steep-sided gorge, water rushes over large rocks, constantly carving them into fantastic shapes. Fossils from a bygone age are there for you to discover and wildlife is in abundance throughout the seasons.

For larger groups we can cater for up to 40 at a time in the gorge and 16 on the new ultimate via ferrata.

With 22 tent pitches How Stean is a great place to meet up and spend time with family and friends. How Stean Gorge is the perfect base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales.
