Throughout the Summer months we are surrounded by village events and mini festivals for families, couples or people travelling alone and looking to make new acquaintances along the way. Our lovely family-run park makes a great base for exploring these events, whether they’re in the Yorkshire Dales, Forest of Bowland or The Lake District.
Countryside Festival Bentham
The Countryside Festival is a local one day event that runs from 12pm – 5pm on Saturday 24th June at Bentham Primary School, to fundraise for the local school. The afternoon will be fun packed with live music, dance performances, BBQ, local craft stalls, face painting, bouncy castles and much more! Entry is free and it’s walking distance from our park!
The Overground Underground festival runs from May to September and celebrates the Ingleborough Dales. The festival has a wide programme with events and activities for everyone including guided walks, informative talks, cycle sportive, family fun days and extreme canyoning!
