23rd October 2022
This is the first in series of posts about places to visit whilst staying in Skipton and the Yorkshire Dales.
Malham Cove needs to be somewhere near the top of your list. This magnificient limestone cliff is 260 feet high and is very popular with visitors to the Yorkshire Dales.
From Thisledo Holiday Cottage in Skipton the drive of 11 miles takes around 30 minutes. There is a car park in the village from where you need to walk to the Cove as there is no close vehicle access. Malham has two very good pubs, The Lister Arms and The Buck Inn which do lunches and serve great beer. There are also several cafes and shops.
Malham Cove has featured in various TV programmes and filsm including the Harry Potter films.
Various websites provide information on Malham Cove, here is a selection.
