  • "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!
