Malham cove

Malham Cove is not to be missed during your stay with us at Miresfield Farm. The Cove is a huge curving amphitheatre shaped cliff formation of limestone rock. The vertical face of the cliff is about 260 feet high. Climb the 400 steps to reach the top of the cove and appreciate the stunning views down the dale.

Janet's Foss

Janet's Foss is a beautiful waterfall a short walk away from the centre of Malham. Follow the path from the front of Miresfield Farm and follow your feet and you'll find it. The waterfall carries Gordale Beck over a limestone drop and is surrounded by lushes woodland. The pool at the bottom of the waterfall was traditionally used for sheep dipping but now attracts more wild swimmers than farm animals.

The scar has two waterfalls running though it and has inspired many artists over the years. The route to the base of Gordale is accessible so can be enjoyed by all visitors to Malham.
