Just Show Me Buckden Cottages

Dust off those boots and head for Upper Wharfedale, a region of unspoilt countryside offering wonderful walks in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Stay in a Buckden cottage and savour the village's tranquil atmosphere and welcomingly slower pace of life.

Walking in and around your Buckden cottage…

Surrounded by dramatic scenery, explore the soaring fells and remote moors, tracing the steps of the 'Calendar Girls' and that famous country vet. Find cascading waterfalls, flower-filled meadows and dense ash woods. Much of the land around and about is owned by the National Trust, enhancing its special appeal. Climb to the top of Buckden Pike for amazing 360-degree views. Another popular route is the circular walk from Buckden to Cray. Long-distance walkers can test their stamina on the Dales Way or the shorter, but equally challenging Dales Traverse. Alternatively, opt for a gentle riverside walk to Starbotton or Hubberholme - home to J.B. Priestley's grave.

Back in Buckden mix with locals - though essentially peaceful, the village has a thriving local community and there's a lengthy list of annual events. Enjoy refreshments in the pub, a meal in the restaurant and find all your essentials in the village stores. Discover more about the region's past at the National Trust's exhibition in a village barn. Or while away an hour in the riverside gallery, where you'll also find a National Park Information Point. And don't miss a visit to the local farm shop - the best place to purchase meat and more for a meal to remember in your Buckden holiday cottage!
