Looking to get back to basics and spend some time with nature? Pick up your campervan from our Leeds depot and head for Malham. Spend the night at a secluded campsite right at the foot of the path to this unique limestone rock face. There’s no electric hook-up here so you can fully appreciate the night-time view from a designated dark sky discovery site.
Just a short walk away in Malham village you’ll find a couple of pubs serving home cooked food and of course, a pint or two. The nearest shop for all of your camping essentials is The Farm Shop at Town End Farm. Pick up your bread, bacon and sausage for a fry-up or grab a bite to eat in the tea room.
GOAT Roadtrip Leeds Depot (58 Commercial Road, LS5 3AQ)
Pick-up in the afternoon on the first day and drop-off in the morning on the last day (specific timings depend on the vehicle – see here). To extend your stay by adding more nights, please specify in your enquiry.
This 70m high limestone cliff has been attracting visitors to the Dales for decades. Formed by ancient glaciers and huge floods, the cove was once the scene of a giant waterfall. From the limestone pavements at the top of the cove there are incredible views over the village below. The rock face itself is well-known nowadays for protecting a pair of nesting peregrine falcons as well as house martins and a parliament of owls. This unique landscape also featured in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
Take a walk from Malham village to Janet’s Foss. Legend has it that the Queen of the Fairies once lived behind this magical waterfall. Start your walking route at the Buck Inn, crossing the stone bridge over Malham Beck and follow the signs for Janet’s Foss. Pass through the kissing gates into Malham Tam Estate and continue along the woodland path until you reach this mysterious waterfall and hidden cave.
Created during the Ice Age, Gordale Scar’s waterfall and gorge provide the perfect backdrop for a weekend of hiking. Climb alongside the waterfall to Malham Tam, a former glacial lake which is now a National Nature Reserve. Unfortunately, at the moment, the main route up the waterfall is closed due to social distancing but there is an alternative path available.
Visit the Yorkshire market town of Settle and spend a day browsing the independent shops in the town’s historic centre. The marketplace has an array of galleries, craft shops and cafes, perfect for a spot of people watching. Head outside of the town centre and into the hills to Attermire Scar. Follow the Pennine Bridleway up Gorbeck Road to Victoria Cave. Evidence cave bears, elephants and hyenas from the Ice Age have been found among the caves here.
