Popped in for a cup of tea and a brilliant bacon butty. Great staff- very friendly. The cavers were a bit of a let down, self guided, with very little information as to why different parts were named as they were. Sadly they have had...More

This is a must-see if you are in the area. An absolutely fascinating insight into the most beautiful naturally created caves. Having never really been into a cave before, I was astonished by the sheer beauty of the place. £8 entry is reasonable and there...More

Easy to find just off the main road between Pateley Bridge & Grassington and no walking required as the caves are directly under the gift shop and car park. I’d still recommend boots though as it’s a bit wet and slippy underfoot. We got vouchers...More

Despite our children's reluctance to visit, Stump Cross Caverns was one of the highlights of our stay in the Yorkshire Dales. The cafe was excellent serving good quality food at reasonable prices and the caverns themselves are well worth a visit. It was the quiz...More

Hi sorry for the delay! I would say not really as you go down a flight of steps to get to the cave and the floor is uneven you have to bend a lot so you don’t bang your head ( you are provided with hard hats) hope that helps. More

No, you can turn up anytime between 10am and 5pm and buy tickets when you arrive. The tour of the cave is self guided so there's no specific time you need to come for. We hope to see you soon!
