Magical Malhamdale: The Perfect Walking Base
This visually sensational, physically rewarding, Yorkshire Dales gem is a walker’s paradise. Nestled within an extensive limestone landscape Malhamdale is home to two of the most impressive sites in the national park – Malham Cove and Gordale Scar. The landscape will not disappoint.
As you walk, imagine ancient creatures swimming in tropical seas, now immortalised in the rocks beneath your feet. Amble through huge gorges, past gushing waterfalls, the swirling torrents of water eroding the bedrock below. Let your mind wonder, allow the magic of Malhamdale transport you to another world.
And where better for a walking base than Newfield House? This grand stately home, with extensive views of the Yorkshire Dales, is HF Holidays newest house. One of our first guests, Kate Smith from Stevenage, says: “This location is gorgeous! It’s perfect for walkers with beautiful routes right from the doorstep. And once we arrived, there was no need for a car at all. Love it!”
Award-winning experts in their field, HF Holidays have been creating walking and activity holidays for people of all abilities since 1913. Whether travelling alone, with friends or with family, there’s plenty to explore from Newfield Hall. You can go your own way on a self-guided break or leave the route finding to the experts. Whatever you choose, the iconic Malham Cove with its huge curving cliff, limestone pavement and nesting peregrines, is only a few miles away. Or you can hike through the collapsed cavern that now forms Gordale Scar. If you like a challenge why not take on the Yorkshire Three Peaks? Or go for a more relaxed break combining walking with creative pursuits like art or photography.
Whatever you fancy, HF Holidays will do you proud. Bob Rutherford from Manchester says: “I love HF! It’s hard to know what the best bit is. Loads of food, stonking locations or the brilliant walk leaders? Not only are the leaders expert navigators but they’re knowledgeable and good fun. They even have enough energy to put on some great evening entertainment after a full day walking. I’d never be without my yearly HF Holidays trip.”
