Gordale Scar, Malham

Gordale Scar, Malham

Malham in the heart of the Southern Yorkshire Dales is one of the National Park's favourite walking holiday bases and long beloved by poets and artists. Malhamdale landscapes around Malham village have even featured in a Harry Potter film! The village is a picture-postcard scene of streams, real ale inns, character village shops and a variety of accommodation from Grade II listed farmhouse B&Bs to old Georgian country house hotels, charming rural cottages and award-winning guest houses.

A real draw for the walker, with the Pennine Way National Trail cutting right through the area, Malham offers some mighty walking challenges around the great amphitheatre moulded limestone rock of Malham Cove,  Gordale Scar gorge with breathtaking waterfalls and the iconic Malham Tarn Nature Reserve. Lookout for Peregrine Falcons around Malham Cove! The scenery has a unique alpine feel, and alongside walking, other popular outdoor activities in the Malham area include climbing, caving and mountain biking.

Visit Malham during one of its many events and shows including the annual August Bank Holiday Malham Show, an agricultural extravaganza of farmers' markets, children's activities, vintage vehicles and famous Heavy Horse and Show Jumping competitions.
