About the location
Settle 9 miles; Skipton 10 miles.
The picturesque Dales village of Kirkby Malham is situated in beautiful Malhamdale amidst superb open limestone countryside. The village is made up of the Parish Church, a lovely old village pub, a scattering of dwellings and farmsteads. Kirkby Malham is a great starting point for walkers, with a route along the Pennine Way down to the river and a beautiful walk to Malham, its more famous cousin. More energetic walkers should explore Calton over Calton Moor to Weets Top and Gordale, or head eastwards towards Hetton. Nearby, Malham is a magnet for visitors to the Dales who flock to see Malham Cove, one of Britain's most impressive natural features. The Cove consists of a natural cavern or 'amphitheatre' of limestone rock, stretching 75 metres in height and 300 metres around the perimeter. A steep walk up man-made steps is rewarded with a superb view across the moors and limestone pavements to Malham Tarn, the Pennines' highest natural lake. Kirkby Malham is a wonderful central location with Skipton, Settle, Grassington all within easy reach of this Yorkshire Dales village.
