Best Malton Hotels

Malton Hotels

Malton is a small but thriving historic market town nestled beside the shimmering River Derwent in the forest-laden fields of North Yorkshire. With regularly held outdoor food markets - which are full of fresh produce, from eclectic cheeses and breads to simmering sausages and spicy curries - Malton is well on its way in becoming the food capital of Yorkshire. The small independent boutiques - offset by a few designer stores - align dozens of artisan coffee houses and vintage-sheik bars.

Things to see

Evidence of Malton’s rich history - which spans back to Roman times - can be found in the Castle Garden, an enormous 5-acre public park that joins Malton with the nearby village of Norton. The Castle Garden houses Roman fortress ruins and wide stretches of wild green woodland, where rare wildlife can be spotted moving through the trees. After a tranquil amble through the garden footpaths, head back into town and visit Malton Priory, a white-stone Medieval church that showcases a striking squared-off spire. For a family-themed afternoon, head to nearby Kirby Misperton, home to Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo, the largest amusement park in the county. Riveting white-knuckle roller-coasters and hundreds of beautiful animals make this a fulfilling excursion, where parents are sure to discover their inner child. As the evening draws in, unwind with a drink at one of Malton’s cosy candle-lit bars.

Hotels in Malton

Malton’s small size means that only a handful of hotels are situated in the centre, but the surrounding Yorkshire countryside and the many nearby towns offer a wide range of accommodation suited to all tastes and budgets. Malton’s central hotels boast sublime 4-star service set in half-timbered buildings, with enormous rooms complete with Georgian furnishings. In Yorkersgate Malton, an adjacent area that leads to the city of York, you’ll find a selection of affordable 3-star hotels and historic inn-style 4-star hotels. If travelling on a budget, York offers plenty of inexpensive guesthouses for a comfortable stay.

Where to stay

Stay in central Malton and roll out of bed on a Saturday morning to find yourself in the heart of the town’s buzzing outdoor food market. Spend the day sampling tasty delights at the array of stalls, from melt-in-the-mouth cheeses to cherry-topped cakes and fruit-filled pastries. Even though Malton’s narrow flower-flecked streets make for a romantic setting, for even more Eden-like surroundings, stay in Hovingham, a tiny hamlet situated in the peaceful forests of Howardian Hills. For more urban excitement with a youthful atmosphere and energetic academic culture, stay in the university city of York.

How to get to Malton

Malton is well served by a centrally located redbrick railway station, which offers regular direct services to Liverpool, York and Manchester, from where you can catch a connecting train to central London. Travelling by car is equally easy, with the A64 running north from York to Malton’s centre. Once in Malton, local bus services offer hourly trips to York and the surrounding towns. Bringing your own car is a great way to explore the vales and forests of Yorkshire’s deep green countryside, but if you plan to stay in the town, strolling around on foot is perfectly pleasant.
