Malham is one of our favourite places to visit locally and it never ceases to amaze us. Malham Cove is one of the focal points of the Yorkshire Dales National Park (YDNPA) for a good reason, it’s outstanding. A must see for all visitors.

There are numerous walks in the area; The Cove, Gordale Scar, Janet’s Foss or Malham Tarn. Click on the links to explore them some more or if you are wanting something more challenging then combine them all for a spectacular circular 8km route.

The best place to park is in the YDNPA car park as you enter the village or on the road approaching this if there is space. There is no parking in the village itself. If you are walking the Tarn then parking is available up there.

If you are looking for somewhere to eat then you have a great choice. Three great pubs are in the village centre; Lister’s Arms, Buck Inn and Beck Hall. Beck Hall being the first 100% fully plant based hotel in the country. You will also find a couple of cafes – Cawden Barn on Gordale Lane and The Old Barn in the centre. There is in addition a well located butty van between Janet’s Foss and Gordale Scar. You will also find in Airton (a 2mile drive towards Skipton) the well renowned Town End Farm Shop.
