A beautiful place, and during the cold winter months, very peaceful. It is an easy walk from Malham mainly on the flat, on a well signposted footpath. In the summer, it can get rather busy.

At the tourist information centre I think there were motor homes. There is an additional car park in a field opposite that you would definitely fit on.
