  • "Great location, wonderful views."

    Clean, very comfortable and well equipped. However, the listing does not make it clear that there are some low beams in the cottage. The stone spiral staircase could be difficult for someone with mobility issues.

  • "Nice cottage except for the concrete/stone stairs."

    Could do with a carpet on it. Couldn't hoover when we left as no hoover. Front door requires an inside curtain to stop draughts. Otherwise very good. WiFi good.

    Thank you for your comments.There has always been a working hoover in the property, in the cupboard under the stairs (original sandstone, dating from 1830). Property Owner

  • "Dale View was the most well equipped, warm and cosy cottage we have ever stayed in."

    The area is perfect for walkers with numerous footpaths on the doorstep. Even better for us was the little shop and The Buck Inn right next door. Great food with a warm welcome.

  • "Dale View cottage is delightful, with lovely gardens front (with an incredible view) and back."

    The accommodation is spacious, and the kitchen is the best equipped of any cottage we've stayed in to date. The bird life around the cottage is extraordinary, and we were amused daily by the flocks of sparrows and chaffinches in the bushes and on the path, plus the swallows and goldfinches generally swooping about. We enjoyed stepping out the front door to a wide range of hill and valley walks (so no need to drive - hooray!). Recommend it highly.

  • "Fabulous well equipped cottage, fantastic location in the centre of the village, it was so easy to get around the dales and into Skipton."

    Pub/village store within a few minutes walk. Perfect front garden for taking in the views and beauty of the dales; we would definitely return.

  • "Dale view is a character cottage in the heart of the village of Buckden."

    The front garden has a beautiful view of the hills across the valley and the enclosed back garden gave us privacy and some shade as we visited during a heatwave. Several wonderful walks and cycle routes are signposted from the public car park in the village, and a pleasant stream to paddle in can be found a little up from Dale View. We walked up Buckden Pike and around the valley and back along the river. The stone cottage stayed lovely and cool, I am sure it would be cosy in winter too, and there was heaps of piping hot water (be careful!) We found it to be very well equipped and it was good to have our own parking space. The cottage felt a good size for four of us with a generous sized lounge, it has some low thresholds where you have to 'mind your head', stone staircase and use of a full landline telephone and good WiFi. There is a small village shop, a pub serving food and we had top class takeaway pizzas from Cecilia's Pizzeria in Starbotton. Using the 'What Three Words' address will help you locate the cottage as the location given on the Sykes link is not accurate, although we were also given verbal directions.

    The house is fantastic, very spacious with a fully equipped kitchen containing everything you need.

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!
