Not been here in over 30 years but as stunning as I remember. Beautiful natural scenery, part of the Yorkshire National Park, and so beautifully cared for and respected. We will be back in the summer 😎

A lovely easily accessible walk from Malham village to the cove. Scenery and the photographic opportunities were ‘wow’. We were expecting more of a walk in but the teens were pleased it wasn’t a hiking expedition! A good walk for families. The local pub looked...More
