Holiday Rental House
‘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 view...‘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 needs have to be met and the kitchen is invitingly spacious and well equipped. The master bedroom has full en suite facilities and, for users of the second (ground floor) bedroom there is a second bathroom, complete with sauna room. There are landscaped gardens to front and rear, yet the cottage location is only 100 yards from the village pub (The Buck Inn) and a very special old English tea room (West Winds). Buckden is surrounded by National Trust land and there is a National Trust information centre within the village. Whether your ambition is to riverside amble, hillside ramble – or scramble – there are paths right from your doorstep. Touring locally opens up the scenery so evocative of the ‘Calendar Girls’ or James Herriot’s ‘All Creatures Great and Small’. From castles to caves, sailing to abseiling, geocaching or photography, or quietly mastering crosswords, Sudoku or catching up on your Kindle, we hope and trust that ‘Dalegarth’ will give you a breadth of scope to ensure a successful holiday.

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. Local Shows, such as that at Kilnsey, attract thousands of ...
