Lovely cottage in a brilliant location!
Went here for a weekend as a group of 4 couples celebrating my 50th birthday. It was perfect. The cottage is a good size - plenty of room for everyone. Well equipped. Located really well. No need to use the car once here. Walked up Malham Tarn and Cove on Sat afternoon which took around 3-4 hrs. Ate at The Buck Inn one evening. Food was good. One bonus was having no wifi and patchy phone signal. It meant that we weren't on our devices all weekend which made the weekend even more relaxing. Would def return.

Comfortable cottage in a popular location
A lovely cottage, really traditional and nicely furnished and equipped, just on the edge of Malham. Malham has become incredibly popular now and from the cottage we walked up to Malham Cove, over the top to the limestone pavement and across the fells to Malham Tarn. The next day we visited Janet's Foss waterfall and Gordale Scar, again easily accessible from the cottage. An enjoyable long weekend and chance for a group of friends to catch up.

The cottage is very pretty and in a great location, clean and very comfortable. It definitely needs some decent kitchen knives buying though! Our visit was tarnished by a power cut the first night that lasted around 6 hours, and then again on the 3rd day which had happened when we woke up and lasted until mid afternoon. Unfortunately, everything in the house is electric (cooker, showers, everything) so we were completely stumped. Also, in a separate issue, the dishwasher wasn't working so we had to wash up quite a lot too.

The house was great for our two families, with plenty of space to spread out. The children enjoyed the garden which felt perfectly safe from the road. The living and dining rooms were great for relaxing, eating and playing in, and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare food and clear up afterwards.
Mrs Crowley

The house was very comfortable and spacious. It was very handy for the village and also for Malham Cove and Gordale Scar. We enjoyed being in Malham itself, it is a lovely village with a great family pub and it is very central for exploring the Dales. There is plenty to do in the Dales for families.
