A charming, stone-built terraced cottage, located in a quiet cul-de-sac near the centre of Buckden, a pretty village resting amongst the beautiful rolling meadows and woodlands of Yorkshire’s Upper Wharfedale Valley.
Nestling beside the village brook, this Buckden cottage provides spacious and comfortable accommodation in the very heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, perfect for groups looking to tour this stunning area.
This Buckden cottage has an unusual upside down layout, with a homely sitting room with dining area on the first floor, along with a well-equipped kitchen and a lovely double bedroom, while the ground floor features a twin bedroom and a bathroom.
Ideally situated just two minutes’ walk from the village amenities, this traditional Buckden cottage provides a comfortable retreat to explore this wonderful area.
There are many walks nearby, a favourite of which is the circular trail along the old Roman road to Cray, where you can stop at a welcoming pub for a midway tipple before passing waterfalls and deep pools on the return journey.
For the more energetic, the ascent of Buckden Pike is not to be missed, but there are equally enjoyable, gentle walks alongside the River Wharfe to nearby Starbotton and Kettlewell.
With Malham Tarn and Aysgarth Falls just a short drive away, and the towns of Grassington and Skipton nearby, this Buckden Pike cottage offers a homely base in a fantastic setting.
About the location
Kettlewell 5 miles; Hawes 12 miles.
Nestling at the foot of Buckden Pike, near the head of Upper Wharfedale, this idyllic village makes the perfect place from which to explore the wonderful scenery and pretty villages of this magnificent Dale. Much of Upper Wharfedale is National Trust owned – an indication of the beauty of its classic countryside, with dry-stone walls and barns, important flower-rich hay meadows and valleyside woodland. Undoubtedly, this is one of the best walking areas in the Dales with The Dales Way passing nearby. The village itself comprises a cluster of stone-built cottages and houses with a traditional green at its centre. A perfect location for a holiday!
