Manager recommends

  • The Malham area is famous for its Limestone Geology. So don't miss the lovely Janet’s Foss waterfall, spectacular Gordale Scar, Malham Cove and Malham Tarn are all within easy walking distance and definitely worth the visit. The Pennine Way and Yorkshire Dales Cycleway both pass through this village at the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park so it's a good spot for walking holidays and cycling holidays. The hostel has good facilities for educational groups on school trips.
