NY3P Challenge: Best Accommodation Options

14 December 2018

Many people taking part in the NY3P Challenge are probably not local to Yorkshire and have perhaps travelled a considerable distance to arrive here. As such, visitors to the NY3P may have built up a considerable thirst. Thankfully, we have recommended a number of fantastic pubs in the local area. Similarly, if you are away from home, you will need to think about arranging suitable accommodation. In our latest post, we mention three great accommodation options close to the starting points of the NY3P Challenge. Hopefully, this will take some of the hassle away from searching for the perfect place to stay.

The Buck Inn, Malham

A traditional, family run pub and B&B in Malham village, this B&B was built on the site of an old coaching inn, dating back to 1874. Featuring 10 en-suite rooms, you are always guaranteed a warm reception. Furthermore, the A65 is relatively close by, along with a number of other attractions such as Malham Cove, Foss and Gordale Scar. Skipton, a historic market town, is also in easy reach.

There are a number of different room types available. All featuring breakfast in the morning, free WiFi, towels, hairdryer, TV, toiletries and tea/coffee making facilities. Choose from a single, twin or double room. If you are a dog owner, you can bring your dog along for a small extra charge too!
