Gearstones History

Standing on the peaks of the higher fells, reaching onto the limestone crags, grazing in the lower valleys, hiding in the maze of underground caves and passages, Ribblehead provides a great natural setting for Gearstones Lodge… and adventure!

“Just wanted to say a big thanks for a lovely weekend in Gearstones Lodge. Our running group loved it – lots of people saying it was the best of the three bunkhouses we’ve stayed in so far. Got full use out of the drying room too, rather wet for August!”

Ancoats Run Club

 “Thanks for a really lovely stay at Gearstones Cottage, we had a wonderful time with fantastic weather and great views. The cottage was everything we hoped for and was incredibly warm and comfortable.”

Hiking Weekend

Wanted to say that me and my walking group had such a fabulous weekend in the lodge. Lots of us managed to summit the Yorkshire 3 Peaks which was a great achievement.
