Set in pretty countryside close to the Forest of Bowland, The Forest pub is a great base for exploring the beautiful scenery the local area has to offer.
Malham Cove is a huge curving amphitheatre-shaped cliff formation of limestone rock. The vertical face of the cliff stretches up 80 meters. The top of the cove is a large area of deeply eroded limestone pavement, which is particularly unusual in the UK. It also protects a pair of nesting peregrine falcons, which can be viewed during the summer months. For fans of the film ‘Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows’, Harry & Hermione set up camp in a tent on the Limestone Pavement at the top of Malham Cove.
A 30 minute drive from the Forest Pub, Hardcastle Crags offers 15 miles of footpaths to explore within 400 acres of unspoilt woodland with streams, ravines and rocks. The 19th century Gibson Mill and pond sits a mile into the valley, which has been restored by the National Trust to be fully off-grid as all energy used is generated on-site.
