This Grade II listed, detached cottage is located on the outskirts of Malham in the Yorkshire Dales and can sleep eight people in four bedrooms.

Town Head Farm is a luxuriously furnished, Grade II listed, detached farmhouse just on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales village of Malham. With two double and two twin bedrooms as well as a family bathroom, this cottage can sleep eight people in style. The cottage also contains a fitted kitchen, a dining room and a sitting room with an electric stove.

Outside the cottage, you will find gardens with outdoor furniture and a BBQ, off road parking for 4 cars and an outside storeroom for bikes or walking equipment. Close to the famous Malham Cove and Malham Tarn, Town Head Farm is an impressive holiday home for the discerning traveller who fancies a little bit of comfort after a hard day's exploring.


Could have been better
We have just stayed at Town Head Farm cottage and although it is a lovely house it is in desperate need of re-decoration and a deep clean. The whole house was covered in cobwebs which I can understand a few as in the country but they must have been there months. I had to take one shower head off to clean it as it was disgusting and the trim on the bottom of the shower screen was also full of grime. We did have a problem with the washing machine but this was sorted promptly and a new one installed. I do think that the price we payed for the cottage did not reflect its cleanliness or decor. The village is beautiful as is the surrounding area.

Run down and first review for a long time
The cottage was tired and run down - tv didn?t work properly, no controller for the DVD player... it was quite dirty and just generally unloved. This wasn?t cheap either... When we arrived we were greeted by a bottle of wine which was nice but all that was undone by the fact the heating nor water hadn?t been put on and with elderly folk we had to put it on and leave for the pub returning an hour later. The house was Damp - the radiator in the kitchen didn?t work - the furniture smelt of damp too To the people that own the cottage - if you can?t be bothered please don't take peoples money as it is unfair ? Malham is beautiful and this is perfectly located to get out and about. - not for young kids as there is nothing to do without a properly working tv or working DVD and no phone signal or internet - there is no WiFi at all - if you go, take lots of toys and puzzles but I would seriously think about going unless you are just using it as a hub for walking - if you are the hostels would be far cheaper and offer more I?ve used Sykes for years but I?m really disappointed- I never leave reviews but I feel I should here to warn other away

Perfect accomodation for exploring this wonderful area
We were a group of 5 friends staying here for two nights, while walking in the area. The property was perfect, and contained everything we needed. Plenty of space and nice, clean rooms and ample bathroom capacity. Highly recommendable !

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.
