Grounds

In the natural environment of Malham Moor, High Trenhouse is an oasis of calm and security. As you slowly leave behind the city’s turmoil, cares fall away, traffic thins, the roads shrink to empty tracks and the animals in the fields take time to stare. Finally you arrive where time has been forgot. Peace at last! Five acres of grounds incorporate ponds, woods, open spaces and intimate gardens, with secluded corners. Whether you want space for outdoor exercises, to contemplate, relax in nature or simply chat, the grounds can accommodate your requirements. Picnic tables and parasols identify pleasant corners for those who want to meet, work or play outside.

Surroundings

Beyond the grounds you can enjoy some of the finest scenery in Britain. The beautiful surroundings give you access to crags, caves and moorland. Right from the door you are immersed in the unspoiled upland landscape of the Yorkshire Dales, well away from the madding crowds. Just to step outside is to be in the hills. The air is clean and pure. There is no rumble of traffic or light pollution. This authentic living landscape assures you peace, seclusion and space to make the very best of precious time. Wild rolling hills invite exploration. In the folds of the landscape, small communities have their villages, established in ancient times. Between is space to wander, reflect and regenerate. History is written on the landscape.

Malham

High Trenhouse located on Malham Moor, overlooks the international nature reserve of Malham Tarn, an upland limestone lake with raised peat bog and fenlands. There are many fine excursions to be made, with the dramatic beauty spots of Malham Cove, Janet’s Foss and Gordale Scar within walking distance. Within a few miles you can discover pretty dales villages like Arncliffe and Malham or the market towns of Settle and Skipton. Head north over Fountains Fell and, should you so choose, you can walk all day without meeting a soul.
