The cottage is an ideal place for a relaxing holiday in a very peaceful village within the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. It would suit couples or families that either want to walk and explore the local countryside and mountains or those who want to use it as a base to explore further afield such as Wensleydale (Hawes - village shops, cheese factory and weekly market),Swaledale , Skipton (market town, castle and swimming pool) and beyond. The accommodation occupies the front half of the building and has a garden on each side with patio and furniture for summer dining/bbq. There is a village pub (The Buck Inn) and village restaurant (summer only) within walking distance and 3 further pubs within a 2 mile radius. We pride ourselves on providing a cottage that you will think of as “home” for your holiday with everything you need for a well earned break.

The Yorkshire region

Buckden is in the heart of the Yorshire Dales National park, with a local information barn within the village as well as visitor centres at Grassington, Hawes, Aysgarth falls and Malham. There are hundreds of walks and cycle routes in the area, many of which are provided in the information folder at The Old Chapel. Our favourite walks include Buckden Pike via the lead mines, Buckden-Cray-Yockenthwaite-Hubberholme circular walk, Kettlewell via the higher path and Starbotton and back along the river and Littondale via Horsehead pass with lunch at Litton before coming back via Arncliffe (Strenuous).


Bucken provides a central location to visit the towns and villages of Hawes, Leyburn, Kettlewell, Grassington and Skipton. Local markets include Leyburn (Friday), Settle (Tuesday), Skipton (Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday) and Hawes (Tuesday).

There is a village pub "The Buck Inn", there are 2 tearooms in the village "Westwinds" and "The village shop"(not open all year), and a village restaurant which is open in the evening (not open all year).

A regular bus service (Mon-Sat) operates from Ilkley/Skipton/Grassington to/from Buckden which is handy for organising walks back to Buckden from Grassington or Kettlewell.

Buckden Gala happens every July with its famous fell race.

Other local events can be seen on the Westwinds tearoom website www.westwindsinyorkshire.co.uk/daleseventsdiary.asp

Fans of Walace and Grommit and Wensleydale cheese will enjoy a trip to the cheese factory at Hawes. If you are interested in a day out with a difference 'The Forbidden Corner' booked via the Leyburn tourist office may be of interest. If you remember the original 'Emerdale Farm' the first 'Woolpack Inn' is actually 'The Falcon Inn' in Arncliffe where the the beer (Timothy Taylor's) is still poured from a jug - a real trip back in time!
