  • "A very cosy and warm cottage with excellent supplies of everything you could need."

    Except perhaps a welcoming tea bag. Good location with walks from the door. Not easy to find and the parking wasn't easy at the weekend as the party staying opposite in the barn had five cars and a van.it was fine once they had gone An idiots guide to the TV would have been useful. I never did find live tv channels and spent a lot of time trying. The bath was quite high and I have a slightly dodgy knee so getting in and out of the shower was tricky as there was nothing to hold on to. However I very much enjoyed my stay. An excellent location with a good pub round the corner. A pleasant outside sitting area, comfortable seating and beds. I will certainly think about returning.

  • "Had a fabulous stay in December 2021."

    The cottage is the perfect size for a couple and in an ideal location. It was well equipped with everything that we needed for our stay. The only minor issue for us was the heating... even with the storage heaters turned up full the cottage was cold, not too bad in the lounge as we used the log burner but certainly on the stairs and in the bedroom. It would have been nice to have had a weeks supply of logs, then the burner could have been lite for longer and this would have helped to warmed the cottage. We have already recommended the cottage to friends and family and will definitely return for another stay.

  • "Great location for a relaxing walking holiday."

    The cottage was very clean and had a well equipped kitchen. Second bedroom may be a bit cramped for two adults but it was fine for our needs.

    Beautiful hike from the cottage up and over the hill to The Queens Head at Litton & had the best steak & ale pie ever!

The property

In the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this characterful period cottage is surrounded by stunning scenery and ideally situated for anybody who loves walking, with both challenging hill climbs and a selection of more leisurely rambles along the beautiful River Wharfe.

Set within the village of Buckden at the foot of Buckden Pike, Dale Head Cottage enjoys views over the countryside whilst providing charming holiday accommodation.

The cottage offers satellite TV as well as superfast broadband, ideal for streaming your favourite movies or music and, being in a location where mobile reception can be hard to find, a telephone with free unlimited calls to UK landline and mobile numbers is bound to come in handy.

With all mod-cons provided, a master king-size bedroom offering glorious views across the dale, and one quaint twin bedroom, a stay at this lovely property is topped only by a relaxing stroll to one of the fabulous local pubs!

The parish of Buckden is just a short drive away from the popular village of Kettlewell.

Grassington, famed for its summer festival and Dickensian Christmas celebrations is a 15-minute drive and Hawes, celebrated for its Wensleydale cheese, is approximately 12-miles away.

The historic market town of Skipton, with its Norman castle and award-winning high street hosting a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants, is around 18-miles away.

Make the most of this memorable location by choosing Dale Head Cottage!

Note: This property can be booked with Ref.1012594, together sleeping eight people.

About the location

BUCKDEN

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!
