Days Out In The Yorkshire Dales – Malham
2nd February 2013
Situated in Skipton, the Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales is Thisledo Holiday Cottage.
This self catering property makes an ideal location for a weeks stay in the Dales and for the next few blogs we will let you know some of the favourite days out our previous guests have mentioned.
A visit to Malham Cove is high on everyone list.Â The cove is a 260 foot amphitheatre shaped cliff formation of limestone rock. Once upon a time,Â a huge waterfall flowed over the cove as a glacier melted above it.
Our favourite way to visit Malham Cove is to park in Airton village and then walk along the River Aire public footpath to the village of Malham.
We usually time it so that we arrive in Malham around lunchtime, so that we can have a pint and a pub lunch at the Lister Arms (dogs are welcome) or the Buck Inn.
Fed and watered we then head off through the village of Malham to Malham Cove, before turning around and walking back to Airton. Then we head off back to Skipton where we can enjoy an evening out at one of the many restaurants or pubs in the town centre which are all located just a few minutes walk from the holiday cottage.
