We stayed in Malham and had wonderful weather exploring this beautiful part of the Yorkshire Dales. On our first day we visited Janet’s Foss (pictured above), Gordale Scar and walked towards Malham Tarn and enjoyed walking on the limestone pavement before descending to the bottom of Malham Cove (see here for walk).
The next day we went to Settle, where we visited Attermire Scar, Victoria Cave, and Catrigg Force:
before returning via the River Ribble to explore Settle (see here for walk).
Our final day we visited Hanlith, Airton and Kirkby Malham,
before returning to Malham (see here for walk). There’s more photos on our Facebook page here.
We stayed at the Windermere Hotel. Despite all the recent bad weather, and some gloomy forecasts, we managed to find some enjoyable walks – and avoid the mud and rain! In view of the ground conditions our walks were shorter than usual, but the recent extra rain helped the waterfalls to look good!
On our first day we went to Waterhead at the northern tip of Windermere and saw Stockghyll Force and Ambleside.
The next day we enjoyed sunshine and snow topped hills:
as we explored Elter Water and Loughrigg Tarn.
As it was a little misty on our final day, we had a last minute change of route and did a short but enjoyable walk along Lake Windermere to Bowness-on Windermere.
