3 Peaks Challenge

Holly Grange is the ideal place to stay for guests wishing to complete the strenous 3 Peaks Challenge of Yorkshire.

The challenge means an early start for walkers so we provide fruit juice and cereals that can be eaten in your own room before you set off.
Our rooms all have their own silent running fridge so before you arrive we are able to arrange with you what sandwiches you would like leaving in your fridge so that you dont have to worry where the nearest cafe is while climbing Whernside!
Full English breakfast might seem like a good idea before you set off but we have found out that most people can not face it so early on in a morning and if they did manage it they then regret it......usually just before the summit of Pen-y-ghent!!
We can also offer route advice and a written time guide that informs you how fast you must get between point to point en-route so that you can complete in 12 hours.
At the end of the challenge you have the satisfaction in knowing that your room has a full sized bath in your en-suite and that there is plenty of hot water and muscle soak Radox for your bath.
The most popular day for doing the challenge is on a Saturday during the Spring and Summer months this can get extremeley busy during June, July and August when many of the big national charities organise sponsored walks led by experienced guides for this reason we must insist on a 2 night stay with us however if you want to take a chance and not book while the last minute we may have had a cancellation or a 1 night vacany available.
If you are wanting to enjoy the challenge when it is quieter I would suggest picking a weekday although if you are wanting to clock in and out at the famous Pen-y-ghent cafe then avoid Tuesdays as the owners and staff have a well deserved day off.
