A ‘honey-pot’ that has probably the most visitors of any site/sight along the whole Pennine Way, where hikers, day-trippers, field study students, and lost tourists come together. These days there is adequate parking just south of the village, and a good path from Cove Lane...More
This is a good walk so make sure you wear the right footwear. It's across fields and when you arrive at the cove it really is something spectacular. If you're not 'too good' with heights view from a distance but if not the views are...More
Amazing sight. Visit the visitor centre to learn about it first. Its a fairly long hike to the cove itself as you cannot park at it. No disable access at all which is sad. We were there on a sunny day in summer but it...More
Stunning and spectacular highlights of the Yorkshire dales are in abundance around Malham and this is the most famous. We went up the steps to climb to the top and enjoy the views whilst clambering over the limestone paving. Be warned that when wet this...More
We visited for a family walk in Oct 2018. Unseasonably warm weather was delightful, not too hot for walking.
We parked on the road in Malham - there is a milk churn to pay £2 towards upkeep of the village. We then walked up to...More
One of the most dramatic cliffs in Britain set in beautiful surroundings, the light grey limestone beautifully set off against the surrounding greenery. There is a path up the side to a terrific view at the top. Interesting to geologists as it is part of...More
Hello, If we are to do one short and easy walk (bearing in mind that we will possibly have to carry a 2 year old - we won't be bringing his stroller), which one should it be? Our options are: 1. Malham Cove 2. Malham Tarn 3. Hardraw Falls - understand that this is a very short walk from the car park? 4. Ingleton Falls TIA!

Hi again, Hardraw isn't really a walk it's too short. Ingleton is uphill that could be tricky with a toddler I would drive up to Malham tarn and walk as far as a two year old will allow. However only in the dry, if there's been a lot of rain it won't be good underfoot. Whilst in the Lake District a great walk with a toddler is Tarn Hows

I'm traveling solo so I'm looking for a cheap group tour around the Yorkshire dales national park that includes malham cove and the water falls. It can last from one to three days. Does anyone knows some travel agency that does that? Thank you!

Not sure if it is on your plans already, but try to get to Gordale Scar as well which is stunning and very near Malham cove.
Walk from Malham Village to Malham Cove (15 Replies)
Hi Can anyone please tell me how far it is to walk to Malham Cove from the village and whether it would be very difficult for inexperienced walkers? Thanks.

I can't remember exactly how long the walk to the cove is (someone else is bound to know), but it's level and doable up to the actual steps up to the limestone pavement which are only for the fit due to being steep, uneven, worn and slippery in wet weather. Ditto the limestone pavement itself. You can walk to Gordale Scar quite easily, passing lovely Janet's Foss (waterfall) on the way, so maybe just walk up to the Foss or the Scar and back. You can see the cove as you approach the Scar.
