A surprisingly easy walk and some great views on the way up. We walked from the Malham Cove Visitors Centre to the top and back again in just over an hour.

The optional walk up the 400 or so steps to the limestone pavement well worth it (if you are fit enough)

Beautiful place even more so in the snow. Lovely walk, great views. Not too arduous walk, but worth the effort for the views.

Yes it’s on a field at the side of the track to the cove and a stream runs down the other side, very pleasant but basic. Again not sure of name but national park will answer your query. We stayed there over 30 years ago, had... More

In the village there are public toilets but not at Malham Cove itself. There are also a couple of places to eat that should have toilets.
