Family holiday

Adrenaline and exhilaration for all the family

The Lost Earth Adventures’ team have their bags packed ready to come and meet your family. Below are our top picks of family-friendly adventures to help blow off the Covid-cobwebs.

Unspoilt beauty, quaint market towns and an abundance of adventure opportunities make the Western Yorkshire Dales a superb location for your family’s staycation and day trips out.


Ribblehead Viaduct

Just outside Ingleton, you can find the iconic Ribblehead Viaduct: a must see for anyone visiting the area. The 32 m high, 400 m long structure, built by 2,300 men 150 years ago, is a true testament to the visionary ambition of our Victorian ancestors.



Ingleton sits in the shadow of Yorkshire’s highest peak, Ingleborough. It is full of locally owned businesses, including Ingleton Pottery (where you can see Dick, Jill & Dan Unsworth creating their hand-thrown pieces), and the Old Post Office Microbar. If your family have an interest in anything vintage (clothes, furniture, cars, stuffed animals…), make sure to stop in to Lords Antiques & Salvage.
