Malton is the quintessential Yorkshire market town, traditional in the best sense and yet, with its new foodie scene, chic boutiques & festivals it’s also very modern and up to date. Located on the north of the River Derwent on the historic boundary between the North and East Ridings of Yorkshire.

The town is known as a top foodie destination with its famous food festival, monthly food market, Malton Cookery School, traditional food shops and ‘Made in Malton’ artisan producers. It was Antonio Carluccio who first called the town, “Yorkshire’s Food Capital!”. It also has a large number of excellent independent shops.

As well as Malton’s traditional weekly market every Saturday, there’s an exciting range of food-related events in the town, including the Malton Monthly Food Market (second Saturday of each month) – with cooking demos and live music – an annual Malton Food Lovers’ Festival (in May) and even a cookery school where you can dine in style at the ‘Chef’s Table’. You get also go behind the scenes of the artisan producers on one of the very popular Malton Food Tours.

Relive the dramatic experiences of life during World War II, visit nearby Eden Camp, a former Prisoner-of-War Camp turned modern history museum, other areas to visit include the famous North Yorkshire Coast, Castle Howard in the Howardian Hills AONB, and of course the North York Moors.

We had a great 3 days in Malton. The Penthouse in Chiltern Place is beautiful-so comfortable, relaxing with lovely décor & furnishings. It is ideally located too. We enjoyed our time in Malton and visited Castle Howard at Christmas and went to Helmsley.

We would defintiely recommend and I am sure we will be back.

The booking process was very easy and we would book with Beautiful Escapes again.

Kind Regards

We really enjoyed our stay in Malton, the penthouse apartment is fantastic, right in the centre of this beautiful little town with parking!

Food wise we ate in Florio’s an authentic Italian -fabulous! Also, Chapter One is great for a light bite. If you fancy a beer check out Black Castle Brewery.

We went to Castle Howard, well worth a visit as was the pub close by for a Sunday lunch, – Crown and Cushion in Welburn.

Thank you,

Tim & Kerry

We enjoyed a wonderful 3 night stay at Diane’s apartment. The accommodation is beautiful decorated and absolutely spotless. Diane was very helpful, providing some nice recommendations for the area and was very quick to respond to any communication from us.
Malton is a very pretty place and a great base for exploring more of Yorkshire. We would highly recommend Diane’s apartment to anyone!

We had a lovely week long stay in Malton. The apartment was beautiful, comfortable, and conveniently located just off the main square. Communication from Diane was excellent, with clear check in instructions and recommendations on where to eat/visit during our stay. Parking was easy with a dedicated parking space and Malton was an excellent base from which we explored the wider area. We would happily stay again.
