Malham and it’s Cove.

Malham was looking lovely whilst we were there. Not only was it decked out for the Tour de France but there was also a festival with lots of models of animals throughout the village. This did mean it was quite busy, especially as the weather picked up for our last day, but it added a great atmosphere.

We went to explore above the village on a random hillside with a friend, who was also in the area, and her dog who loved exploring the hillsides.

Our main stop for the day was Malham Cove. Being a massive Harry Potter fan this was the area I was most excited to see. The cove is a filming location from the Deathly Hallows part 1 where Harry and Hermione camp before deciding they want to visit Godric’s Hollow. Geeking aside, as arguably the most famous landmark for Malham there were plenty of tourists around.

As you walk to get there you came towards a large cliff face. Many people were gathered there with binoculars to view the birds nesting along the ridges.

We climbed up the steps to the top where you find the limestone pavement. It is so much fun jumping over the cracks and the views down along the valley are spectacular.

We went for a walk around the area at the top which got us away from the crowds as most people were just sticking to the main cliff top, before heading back down to the village to set off back home.

Whether you have seen Harry Potter or not this area is beautiful and should e on anyone’s list of top places to visit in the UK.
