Dalegarth, Buckden

Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 4
Buckden, Yorkshire Dales National Park, North Yorkshire, England
‘Dalegarth’, in the village of Buckden, is situated at the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park at the head of Wharfedale, amidst glorious unspoilt limestone scenery. The cottage was built in a former Victorian walled kitchen garden and its large lounge / dining room is at first floor level to take advantage of the long distance views along and across the River Wharfe; sliding patio door windows give access to a spacious balcony, from which to sit and sip and watch both sunrise and sunset – and the occasional appearance of wild dear from the wooded hills opposite. Anglers should be aware that the River Wharfe is noted for its wild trout.

Our aim is to provide Guests with comfort and quality -a ‘home from home’ ambience, where they can immediately relax and soak up the idyllic views, peace and tranquillity. Of course practical ne...

We stayed for a week and had the most wonderful restful time. The property is spotlessly clean, light, extremely comfortable, well equipped and has the most glorious views from the balcony. It was wonderful to take our breakfast whilst watching rabbits playing below and listen...More

About the neighbourhood
Buckden, Upper Wharfedale, is right at the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, yet really easy to access. Travel 9 miles north from Skipton to Threshfield - where one could make a special right turn for Grassington, the 'capital of the upper dale - and continue straight on for a further 9 miles, passing Kilnsey Crag and Kettlewell before arriving at Buckden. Uniquely, still travelling 'up dale', one has a choice of routes since the road divides and gives two routes into Wensleydale. Veer left and you pass through the hamlet of Hubberholme en route to Hawes, passing over Yorkshire's highest road. Bear right and an equally dramatic route passes along Bishopdale to Aysgarth in Wensleydale, famous for its Upper, Middle and Lower Falls.
