Malham is unquestionably one of the "jewels in the crown" of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, a small unspoilt and picturesque village set amidst dramatic limestone landscape features, the most dominant of which is the Cove. The village is naturally a haven for those who enjoy the countryside and wish to take advantage of the many varied walks that are available. It is also a very appealing environment for the residents, a choice of cafés and public houses with restaurant facilities. There is also a well-regarded primary school at nearby Kirkby Malham. Malhamdale is in the catchment area of the highly regarded grammar schools in Skipton and there is also a comprehensive school in nearby Settle. The market towns of Settle and Skipton are within some seven and eleven miles respectively and offer a wide range of amenities. The railway station at Skipton has services to Leeds, Bradford and London.
