The property

A delightful, stone-built terraced cottage, nestling in a quiet corner on the outskirts of the village of Buckden, one of the prettiest villages in the Upper Wharfedale Valley, 12 miles from Hawes.

A delightful Buckden cottage, it has been fully renovated and combines original character, including the feature stone fireplace, with contemporary comforts and appliances.

Boasting an open plan living area with well-equipped kitchen, dining area and sitting area with cosy woodburner, this Buckden cottage is great for a romantic escape or small family holiday.

Enjoy a relaxing afternoon by the River Wharfe, or follow the numerous footpaths and many peaceful walks through the village and absorb the striking views.

The village pub, just three minutes' walk away, offers fine ales and tasty food, while the old Roman road route, just adjacent to the cottage, is a particular favourite amongst locals, with a welcoming pub located at the halfway point of the walk.

With Malham Tarn and Kettlewell just a short drive away and the towns of Grassington and Skipton nearby, this is a superb location for exploring the Dales!

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!
