Perfect cottage,in a perfect location

  • 4 of 5

Rowan Cottage is the perfect get away from it all cottage.In a lovely totally unspoilt Yorkshire Village,if the you want bright lights hustle and bustle then it's not for you. The cottage has wonderful views in all directions,and is perfectly equipped for all your needs,with a lovely large garden which isn't totally enclosed,which with some dogs could be an issue,ours soon learned not to go down the side of the cottage,hence only 4 stars instead of 5.,and a real sun trap of a patio. Perfect location for walks,with wonderful walks on your doorstep,we caught the Dales bus into Kettlewell,and walked back.Small village shop with basic supplies( we had a home delivery from Tesco on our arrival day),nearest main supermarket is inSkipton about half an hours drive away, two village tea rooms, although one has recently been sold,the pub the Buck Inn remains closed,but the George at Hubberholme is a half an hour pleasant riverside walk away.Oversll would definitely recommend Rowan cottage,and we are already considering a return visit.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here in Buckden, the cottage was very clean, well equipped and comfortable, the only thing that would be handy is a Rotary line in the garden. The village is very friendly, and the tea rooms are a must, the pub serves lovely food even though a bit pricey the staff are very helpful and friendly. We were very lucky with the weather and was able to do plenty of walks from the village. We would definitely stay here again and will look into booking again in the near future.

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

A cosy and convenient cottage in the heart of this tiny Dales village. Very well-equipped and clean, with a lovely back garden to catch the sun, which luckily shone for us! Buckden is delightful, an interesting National Park exhibition a few yards away, shop equally close, though sadly the pub and the café attached to the shop have both closed. Other pubs only a mile a way though. Such a beautiful part of Yorkshire, we especially loved Langstrothdale.

Perfect location for access to most beautiful Dale

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was just spot on for our Dales walking holiday; well fitted, tastefully presented and quietly located, yet within a stones throw of all village facilities - we loved it !

What a delightful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

A delightful property! Very well situated for a range of different walks to suit all the members of the family and delightfully quiet. The Buck Inn, 2 minutes walk down the lane, was a great place to eat and drink. The garden was a real bonus for dogs and children. The cottage itself was very well equipped (better than any other I have stayed in), extremely comfortable and cosy too - a real home from home! We look forward to returning soon!

You will find that Buckden is the perfect centre for exploring the Yorkshire Dales by car, bike or on foot. Sitting on the banks of the River Wharfe, in some of Britain's finest unspoilt and spectacular scenery. Because of this beauty, much of Upper Wharfedale is owned by the national Trust and is superb walking country. Strolls to a nearby pub along the river or if you prefer, a more energetic climb to the top of Wharfedale's highest peaks, Great Whernside and Buckden Pike, both over 2,300 feet await.

Wherever you go you are assured of dramatic views over the surrounding dales and fells. Within a two mile radius there are three lovely country pubs.

Further afield, amongst the many attractions are the Three Peaks Walk, Settle to Carlisle railway, Skipton's Medieval Castle and Bolton Abbey.

A short drive will take you into the Lake District, the spa town of Harrogate, the historic City of York, and the Cities of Bradford and Leeds.
