Full Description: The Yorkshire Dales village of Stainforth originally got its name from the ‘stony ford’ which connected two settlements on opposite banks of the River Ribble.
The ford was replaced by a packhorse bridge in the 1670’s. The bridge today joins Little Stainforth with Great Stainforth. Further downstream lies Stainforth Force, this is where the river flows over a limestone shelf and cascades into a deep pool. Creating an exquisite waterfall effect!
Traditional grey stone cottages cluster on an uneven green next to Cowside Beck, and a small clapper bridge stretches from bank to bank. Catrigg Force further along Stainforth Beck is just a mile away.
There is much to see including visiting one of the best preserved limestone kilns or countless magnificent caves and caverns.

The Craven Heifer Hotel is a traditional pub in the quiet village of Stainforth, at the heart of Ribblesdale. We serve a range of good ales, wines and spirits in our cosy bar. High quality home cooked food is served in our restaurant area.
Set in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the park stands on the 45 acre estate of Knight Stainforth Hall, a manor house dating back to pre-Norman times, which belonged to the Knight Templar. The park is not only ideally situated for exploring the dales but is also within easy traveling distance of the Lakes and Herriot Country. The park is now run by third generation of Maudsley involved in tourism, Chris and Paul, with help from their wives Linda and Gemma. The site has now moved forward offering high quality facilities in this exquisite location. The Touring Park is open from 1st Mar - 31st Oct and offers 100 touring pitches for Caravans, Motorhomes and Tents. 75 of these are serviced with electrical hook-up points. On site facilities include a shop with off-license selling basic supplies, camping accessories and gas refills (both cartridges and bottles)
