OverviewMalham Tarn Bothies, on the National Trust Malham Tarn estate in North Yorkshire, offer basic camping barn accommodation right on the Pennine Way. Ragged Robin Bothy and Meadowsweet Bothy each sleep 6 people on bunk bed platforms. Treat it like camping but without the tent, so you need to bring camping mats, sleeping bags and cooking equipment. There is one external toilet and wash up area with cold water, shared between the bothies. No heating or lighting, so a perfect location for those who want to escape technology and enjoy dark skies. Dogs are allowed by arrangement and there is car parking space for one car per bothy. Both bothies have an opening season from April to end October each year. One nights stays are welcome, except for Fridays and Saturdays when there is a minimum 2-night stay.

The perfect location if you’re looking to retreat from technology
Malham Tarn Bothies offer authentic camping barns for those that are more interested in experiencing Yorkshire. To be treated as camping without a tent, don’t forget your sleeping bags and camping mats. The Bothies are just a 15 minute walk from Malham Tarn, which is home to a lovely circular walk talking you onto the Pennine way and past the iconic smelt mill chimney. There’s also plenty of fun for birdwatchers as the national trust has placed a bird hide along the trail if you’re lucky you might even see an elusive Hen harrier. All this and more for you and your dog to experience
