Things to do in the Yorkshire Dales

Our distillery is tucked away in a village called Kettlesing in the Yorkshire Dales. A fantastically beautiful area, and the inspiration behind our Sing Gin, we’d like to share insider tips on where to visit…

For sheer breathtaking beauty, try Malham Cove. This curving limestone rockface attracts rock climbers, nesting peregrine falcons, and offers incredible clifftop views! World Heritage Site Fountains Abbey is a truly special place for us. As well as ancient abbey ruins, there’s also the Studley Royal Water Garden, which inspired our Sing Gin branding.

Aysgarth Falls is home to stunning woodland and a triple flight of waterfalls which featured in the film, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Sculpture lovers should try Coldstone’s Cut. This is Yorkshire’s biggest and highest public artwork with spectacular views of surrounding Nidderdale. Gaping Gill is a famous cave and one of Britain’s largest underground chambers.

Ribblehead Viaduct is a triumph of Victorian engineering and carries the Settle–Carlisle railway, passing through the famous Three Peaks. And if you love a good castle, Bolton Castle where Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned offers a dungeon, old kitchens, armoury, falconry displays, beautiful gardens and maze, and countless family activities.
