What our HF Holidays' route testers say:

leaderClassic Malham circuit -"If you only have half a day to spare then this walk will introduce you to three of Malham’s geological wonders. The tufa waterfall and pool of the fairies at Janet’s Foss; the collapsed cave of Gordale Scar and the 300 ft cliff and former waterfall which is Malham Cove with its limestone pavements consisting of clints and grikes." David Butcher, HF Holidays Leader 

leaderSimon's Seat -"A rewarding route, mainly in the Duke of Devonshire’s estate, offering an ascent of Simon’s Seat. It provides splendid views of Wharfedale, Parceval Hall, Nidderdale and, on a clear day, the White Horse in the North York Moors National Park." Lynne Noble, HF Holidays Leader
