Description from owner

Description

Our lovely 17th century farmhouse can fit up to 12 people comfortably with the twelfth person having a substantial fold-up bed - a perfect set up for two families or a group of friends who want to holiday together.

In 2015 we invested in some major refurbishments with completely new kitchen, showers and bathrooms, new beds as well as some bedroom alterations, on top of our regular programme of upgrades. Monsoon showers were installed to freshen those tired limbs!

The large kitchen, with its long refectory table and AGA in the alcove, is ideal for those big holiday breakfasts and dinners. We have two living rooms, one with a 42" LCD SMART TV with FreeSat, video and DVD (perhaps the TV and games room for the youngsters?); the other lounge is with a CD player (WiFi available generally). One lounge has a woodburner stove and the other has an open fire. The house is in the heart of the village, easy walking distance from our village pub, the renown Buck Inn.

The house itself is set in a quiet courtyard, with stunning views up to Buckden Pike, the hill that rises sharply behind the village. There's an open patio area with a built-in barbecue, ready for that perfect summer's evening.

Clifford House Farm has been owned by a group of friends since 2002 who have all fallen in love with the beauty of the valleys, lanes, villages and hills of this breathtaking part of England. We all holiday in the house ourselves, several times a year, relishing that first pint of Old Peculier and stiff walk up the path to Cray as we make the long journey up the M1! We certainly hope that you will also leave at the end of your holiday with the same fondness that we all have for the village and the dale.

Location description from owner

The Yorkshire region

The Yorkshire Dales is perfect walking country, although there is plenty to see and do which does not involve walking. There are market towns, castles, ruined abbeys, cheesemaking, model farms, steam railways, picturesque villages, pubs, upmarket restaurants and so much more all within a short driving distance. And if you're looking for that perfect winter setting, Buckden is high enough that we usually have snow during the winter.

Northern England

The village of Kettlewell is only a ten minute drive down the valley (Kettlewell is where they filmed "Calendar Girls") and Grassington, the lovely old market village, is a further 15 minutes along the road. Skipton, "Gateway to the Dales", is the large market town closest to us, where you can do your normal food and general shopping (that said, there is a handy village stores in Buckden itself, where you can get your basics: paper, milk and postcards). Fountains Abbey, Jervaulx Abbey, Bolton Abbey, Ripon Cathedral, Harrogate, Embsay-Bolton Abbey Steam Railway, Malham Cove, Ribblehead Viaduct, Skipton Castle and Wensleydale Creamery are all close by.

Buckden itself is a village at the top of Wharfedale, where the road splits in two. Both branches run over to Wensleydale, one branch up over the very top via Hubberholme and Yockenthwiate. The other via Cray and Bishopdale, and past West Burton. Buckden sits on the River Wharfe and the Dales Way passes by. The village pub, the Buck Inn, is a large, Georgian coaching inn. There are two hamlets a mile or two further up the dale, Hubberholme with its ancient parish church (J B Priestley's favourite church, his ashes are held there) and Cray. In Hubberholme you can visit the George, a pretty whitewashed pub opposite the church and next to the river. And at Cray you have the marvelously friendly White Lion. Both pubs serve good pub food in front of open fires, fabulous settings for a lunchtime pint or an evening meal.

Back down the valley you have the village of Starbotton (the Fox & Hounds pub is lovely) and then Kettlewell with its large village stores, tourist shops, three pubs (try the Bluebell) and gorgeous church. And Grassington is only a few miles further back down the road, where you can pretty much get all your shopping done (there's a small supermarket, butcher, baker, that sort of thing).

The kids will love climbing up Buckden Beck behind the village and up to the waterfall. They can also splash about at Yokenthwaite where the river flows gently over the flat "limestone pavement", forming pools and little cataracts.
