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 😎

The trail from Malham through the fields and past Janet's Foss up to the limestone cliff is great. Even though there are lots of people, it's a great day of exercise and the landscape is breathtakingly beautiful. There are stone walls and fences everywhere you...More

You can get to the base of the cove with a stroller. But not up the cove, very steep steps. To eat: the Secret Garden Bistro near Malham. Beautiful spot by the river.
