The Flying Horseshoe Caravan Park Location
The Flying Horseshoe Location
The Flying Horseshoe is located in Clapham in North Yorkshire. It’s a charming village, as you’ll see, with Clapham Beck trickling through the heart of the village itself.
Another great reason to stay with us in Clapham is to enjoy some of the refreshing walks that can be started right here in and around the village.
If you’re prepared for a climb, you could even try climbing one of the famous Yorkshire Three Peaks, which include Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough.
Visiting Settle and Skipton
These are the two nearest towns to Clapham. Settle is a market town and is situated very close to a number of caves that have revealed prehistoric remains over the years. It’s great for shopping, not to mention the chance to enjoy a bite to eat in one of the tea rooms or local pubs. All kinds of heritage-based and other attractions are available locally too.
Meanwhile, Skipton is dominated by the 11th century castle, while the market town is also home to High Corn Mill. This is packed with small local businesses and provided a real cornucopia of shopping possibilities. Don’t miss a visit to Aireville Park or the chance to take a day cruise on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal nearby.
Welcome to the Dales!
Of course, Clapham is also nestled in the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales. This opens up all kinds of possibilities for getting out and about and exploring the natural world around you. If you’re looking for a break from civilization, you’ll certainly get it here!
The Dales are popular with drivers and walkers. The extensive cave systems beneath are home to several attractions too, so make sure you visit them to see the Dales from beneath…
Exploring the Forest of Bowland
This is another possibility to get out and about, as part of the forest falls within North Yorkshire. This is still something of a secret few tourists know about, so you could have a chance to really get away from it all. You can also discover why it’s called the Switzerland of England when you visit, and why it has been confirmed as an Area of Natural Beauty (AONB).
