About
Ingleton Pottery is a small family run business making high-fired, hand thrown Stoneware pottery in the Yorkshire Dales village of Ingleton, by the riverside. Established in 1971, we are the longest established working pottery in the Yorkshire Dales. We are open from 9.30am until 5pm, most days, but if you're coming out of season please ring and check to avoid disappointment. We make a wide range of extremely tough tableware, electric and oil lamps, candlelights, vases, wine sets and more - all at sensible prices. Everything we is hand made and is dishwasher, oven and microwave safe. All our clays & glazes are entirely lead-free and made from our own recipes. This ensures an absolutely unique product and style.

We had our 1st trip out since lockdown eased up, we took a trip up to Ingleton North Yorkshire. We had to pay a visit to our most favourite pottery in the whole country, INGLETON POTTERY it was a pleasure to be greeted by the owners Mr & Mrs Unsworth & their son. This little pottery is such a nice quaint shop, every time we visit we always buy something, as all the items on sale are handmade by the family right their in the pottery. The items range from Tea light Holders right up to big pots & vases, they even make Egg cups etc, the merchandise is reasonably priced and of the highest quality. Thank you the Unsworth's for making us feel so welcome, see you soon.

Lovely pottery items for sale at unexpectedly reasonable prices. Unfortunately no one was in the shop so we didn't meet the "friendly owners" mentioned in other reviews. A bell was provided to ring for assistance. Beautiful oil lamps, wine goblets etc. and some quirky pieces for sale. We will certainly visit again and maybe buy some Christmas presents here.

Called to check pottery open and politely ask if there was a good time to visit the shop and also perhaps see pottery being made, if he was intending to be making pottery that day (other reviews indicated that if you were lucky, this could be seen from the shop without encroaching into the workshop ie not a covid issue). Perhaps a stupid question but chap on the phone said "it's not a natural history museum" and was just so rude... as if the idea of being interested in seeing pottery being made, at a pottery.... that does mention demonstrations and workshops on the website and being able to see pottery being made... is some sort of insulting and freakish suggestion. I tried to recover from that and be friendly, said we would be popping into the shop at some point anyway because so many reviews have raved about the lovely pottery and he said "I shall count the minutes until I see your smiling face"! So we didn't go. Visited Bentham Pottery, and spent our money with the very friendly and welcoming lady there instead. For all I know, Ingleton Pottery makes great pottery and sells it at low prices but they can keep it if they find the most basic level of curiousity about their craft so insulting. There was no need at all to be so sarcastic and rude, maybe just "it doesn't work like that, I can't give you a time" would have been better?

Me and my partner popped into the shop twice in September during our visit.
Nice place and very well situated, but both times we had the impression that the staff there didn't really care for our custom. We tried to say hello and engage with you and we were completely ignored.

Despite this, we are happy with the two items we bought, they are good quality pieces and look very nice.

This little shop attached to the Ingleton Pottery is a delight. It is owned by Dick Unsworth, a one handed potter. The selection is immense and a delight to walk round it is so colourful. I purchased a Mortar and Pestle at a very reasonable price. Dick is very friendly and will talk the hind legs off a donkey. I have no hesitation in recommending this lovely shop.

I love visiting Ingleton Pottery and call in when over that direction. I have bought lovely gifts and also lamps and vases for our home. The family that run it are very welcoming.
I always encourage people to call in and have a browse if in the area as it is well worth a visit.
