This stone-built detached cottage is located by the side of a stream on a quiet lane in the heart of Buckden, one of the prettiest villages in Wharfedale Valley.

With a cosy sitting room with wood-burning stove and a bathroom with feature roll top bath, this property also features a patio overlooking the pretty stream. With the attractions of the village just moments away and the town of Hawes within easy driving distance, this is a well-situated cottage to explore everything that the surrounding countryside has to offer.

Set at the foot of Buckden Pike near the head of Upper Wharfedale, the idyllic village of Buckden is a wonderful holiday destination for any walking enthusiast. Much of Upper Wharfedale is owned by the National Trust and retains its traditional dry-stone walls and barns, important flower-rich hay meadows and valley-side woodland. The varied surrounding countryside offers a number of bridleways, cycling trails and paths whilst the village itself is composed of a cluster of stone built cottages and houses with a traditional green in the centre. The green is home to the famous 'Buck Inn' - a lovely Georgian construction retaining much of its old charm.
From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?
