A family run pub in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, The Buck Inn is perfect for leisure stays or business bookings alike. Situated amongst some of the most picturesque rural landscapes in the U.K, you will find us in the traditional farming village of Malham. Whether you want a relaxing location for a romantic weekend, an energetic escape from urban life or just a treat for the family, from the moment you arrive, you will feel the warm welcome of Malham and wonder at the spectacular countryside.
Built in 1874 on the site of an old coaching inn on the Pennine way, The Buck has 10 en-suite bedrooms and is within walking distance of the enchanting Malham Cove, Malham Tarn, Janet’s Foss and Gordale Scar and has been featured on Julia Bradbury's Best Walks with a View and Adrian Edmonson's The Dales.
The Buck is conveniently located in the centre of the village, and just a 30-minute drive from the A65. Guests looking to explore the local area are within an easy drive of historic market town of Skipton, known as 'the Gateway to the Dales' and home to Skipton Castle amongst other attractions. Bolton Abbey, Settle and Ingleton are a similar distance, offering sight seeing and leisure opportunities aplenty. In the immediate area, visitors can take in the sites of Malham Cove, Malham Tarn, Janets Foss & Gordale Scar in bite size chunks or tackle the lot and really make a day of it. There really is something for everyone at The Buck.
“Following a recent unplanned four night stay at The Buck Inn (due to a crisis in our rental cottage), we were extremely pleased to find The Buck under the new ownership of Karen and her son Steve. From the start, they were friendly, helpful and accommodating to our needs with good old Yorkshire hospitality at their core. Having frequented The Buck for many years, it has been some time since the inn has replicated its’ “homely”, welcoming feel of days gone by but has certainly done so now. All of their team were also cheery and friendly with excellent service, food and accommodation provided. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Karen, Steve and their team for all they did and wish them all success for the future, we look forward to visiting again soon.”
“Just returned from staying at The Buck Inn for two nights with my boyfriend. What a beautiful place, lovely food and lovely friendly people. Great location for walking in the gorgeous countryside. Thanks for a lovely relaxing time, just what we needed. Do not hesitate to stay here, just book it!”
“We stayed here on Saturday 29th October for a night. We chose a double room with a four poster bed with breakfast. From the first moment we arrived the service was spot on, quick efficient and genuinely friendly.
We had a great view out into the village and along the river. The shower room looked recently decorated and was very good indeed.
We ate are main evening meal here too, both of us going for the homemade steak pie which was lovely, and with Timothy Taylor bitter on tap and a lovely fire going, who needs more.
The breakfast was the full English kind and very hearty indeed although their were lighter options available too. Again the service was spot on.
Given there is some competition in the village which I’m sure is also good, overall we couldn’t fault this place and would happily return.”
“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. A gorgeous place in a stunning setting. Our room was cosy and comfortable. Dinner and breakfast were delicious, and the staff were really friendly. We will definitely be back!”
