This Centre, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, occupies a large Georgian country house, leased from the National Trust. 

Malham Tarn is an unusual lime-rich upland lake, set amid a variety of habitats with a range of nationally-scarce species. To the west of the Tarn is an area of fen and raised bog, while the surrounding grassland has areas of limestone pavement and a rich flora.  The woodland around Tarn House is also of conservation importance.

The Tarn and its associated wetlands and woodlands form a National Nature Reserve. The reserve is part of the much larger Malham-Arncliffe Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). The area’s importance in an international context is recognised by its designation as a RAMSAR site and as a Special Area of Conservation (SAC). The National Trust manages the reserve in partnership with Natural England and the Field Studies Council. For every paper copy of a workshop/course booklet requested by a participant for a course held at Malham Tarn Field Station, £5.00 is donated by PR~statistics to the National Park to compensate/offset the carbon footprint of printing a paper version – this is done for all venues situated in National Parks that host our courses.
