It retains a picturesque charm, with 17th century farmhouses and cottages.
Just outside the village is the spectacular Great Scar limestone scenery.
Malham Cove is a huge limestone amphitheatre with 300 foot cliffs, from which issues a stream once thought to be the source of the River Aire.
Gordale Scar includes waterfalls only accessible on foot.
Malham Tarn is a lonely moorland sheet of water.
Charles Kingsley wrote part of "The Water Babies" at Tarn House, and the writer Bill Bryson lived for several years here.
The Pennine Way runs through Malham.
