The Dingles' Homestead is based on "Wishing
Well Cottage" which is not part of the built Emmerdale set
but is a farmhouse to the west of the set.
To see the original building there are two possibilities as
1) It can be approached via public footpaths/bridleway.
2) It can be seen from the tour bus
3) A part of the end of the building can be seen from the
path to the village
How to find it on foot not on the Emmerdale Tour
Possible place to park (though be aware that the coaches for the tour
travel up this road so ensure ar is well off the road
The footpath starts by this gate. Turn right onto a Bridleway to go past
the Emmerdale Tour facility
Seeing "Dingle's Homestead" from the Emmerdale Tour bus.
Even though the start of the tour is just along from the
building, the tour operators make it clear that you may not leave their
site along the bridleway.
However the road
to/from the compound does enable a view of the building, and the speed
is low so photographs can be taken through coach windows.
To do this ensure you sit on the left side of
the coach to the tour and on the right for the return.
