  • "Cosy and comfortable shepherd's hut in lovely surroundings."

    All essentials provided but no unnecessary clutter/gadgets. In private area with parking and looks out at garden/orchard. Very easy access to local walks (Dales Way is a 5-minute stroll from the hut) and short drive to other local villages. Friendly and welcoming owner. Perfect for a short retreat.

  • "We had a wonderful week at The Cabin."

    Such a relaxing and beautiful setting with plenty of walks straight from the door. The Cabin itself is small but cleverly laid out with everything you need for a perfect "get away from it all" break. We will definitely be recommending it to our friends.

  • "The Cabin is compact, yet comfortable, with all I needed."

    I had access to a field next door with seats on all sides so you could always sit in the sun (and it was a week of wall-to-wall sunshine!) or in the shade as needed. It's very peaceful, with the sound of birdsong all around. You can access walks and the Dales Way directly from the property, and a special shout out for the map provided, which is a custom print and covers the area brilliantly (you need two of the regular OS maps to cover the area!). A good property in a beautiful location - I could see myself returning...

  • "Clean, very comfortable and well equipped accommodation."

    A perfect location for a short stay in beautiful Upper Wharfedale, with easy access on to The Dales Way and central to other attractions in the Yorkshire Dales.

  • "This was our second visit and we enjoyed it very much."

    The facilities are first rate and for people who like to walk, including the dog, the location is difficult to beat. We enjoyed the silence and the views. Thank you!

  • "What a fantastic property."

    Loved every minute of my stay. The owner is lovely and very accommodating. Stayed with my Border Collie and he had loads of room to run around safely…with the owners dog. Plenty of great walks on the doorstep and a lovely pub.

  • "I had a wonderful stay in the Cabin."

    It was spotlessly clean with lovely bedding & towels & the shower was amazing. The Cabin is extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly need. The Hosts are absolutely lovely & are right on hand if you need anything but left me to enjoy my stay - there was a bottle of milk in the fridge & biscuits in the cupboard - very thoughtful. The surrounding area is stunning & there is a map in the welcome / information pack. I am in love with this place - I felt totally relaxed & refreshed - I will definitely be booking again! Thank you!

  • "We enjoyed our holiday."

    The cabin was spotlessly clean and everything inside was to an excellent standard. The location is wonderful, quiet but with immediate access to a variety of walks. We have already re-booked for later in the year.

The property

Buckden 1.8 miles.

Resting in the Yorkshire Dales National Park in Starbotton near Buckden, Wharfdale, is this inviting shepherd's hut, The Cabin.

The perfect base for a couple who love the outdoors, the hut is situated down a country lane, moments away from a range of peaks and walking trails, including the Buckden to Starbotton hillside and river walk.

After parking up in the off-road parking area, make your way up the steps and into this attractive abode, where everything you need is at your feet.

Wander over to the lovely kitchen space, where shaker-style cabinets enjoy wooden worktops and all the appliances you need to create easy meals, including an electric cooker.

These treats can be enjoyed as a meal for two at the dining table whilst the woodburning stove crackles away in the background.

Alternatively, you can wander down the steps and tuck into your meal at the bistro table as you soak up those views of Birks Fell.

At the end of the day, freshen up in the shower room before snuggling up in the double bed.

In the morning, why not take out a cup of steaming coffee to the nearby lawned area, where you can unwind on the seating amidst those views; a fire pit can also be found here, ideal for summer evenings!

The hut enjoys a prime location in Starbotton, with two welcoming pubs practically sitting on your doorstep, and hikes up Birks Fell and Great Whernside being within easy reach!

Continue to Buckden, another delightful village, where more of your amenities rest in one handy spot, as well as access to Buckden Pike and its nearby waterfalls, such as Cray Gill and Middle Falls.

The market town of Hawes isn't far and is home to the renowned Dales Countryside Museum, the historic delight of Gayle Mill, as well as the Wensleydale Creamery Visitor Centre.

The delights of Malham, Settle and Skipton are all within easy reach and offer even more to see and do.

Choose The Cabin for a romantic break to remember.

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!
