Tudor House dates from 1849. It was built as Bell Busk Station to service the village of Malham by the North Western Railway Company (a.k.a. Little North Western ) which was soon to be amalgamated with The Midland Railway. The line was originally the Leeds to Morecambe route but by 1876 the now famous Settle to Carlisle line was completed and became part of the main west coast route between London & Scotland. The station was closed on 4th May 1959. The property first became a B&B/Guesthouse during the 1970 s and nowadays offers a unique experience combining comfort hospitality and a fascinating piece of local history. We will endeavour to build on the reputation developed by previous owners and expand and extend the range and level of experiences our guests can enjoy. Apart from the bedrooms we have a comfortable dining area and a relaxing sunroom overlooking the railway line. The unique residents lounge fashioned from the original station Waiting Room has a TV radio/CD/MP3 and warming log-burning stove to ensure a cosy atmosphere. Over an acre or well-kept gardens is the ideal environment for a relaxed day reading a book or chilling out after a hard days walking sightseeing cycling pony trekking shopping bird watching or any of the other great variety of things to do locally.
