'The Ghyll' is a collection of three cottages - named after local birds:Heron, Dipper and Swallow - sharing a sunny secluded garden, nestling below Buckden Pike. Currently, only 'Heron Ghyll' is available for self catering holiday lettings.
'VisitEngland' has given the cottage '4 Stars, Gold Award' as a result of their latest annual Inspection. As the Inspector said - 'it is a 5 Star 4 star cottage'!
With private parking adjacent to the open logia and level entrance to the cottage, it is ideal for any family that has a member with a mobility difficulty. Passing through a small interior porch (ideal for outdoor coats and boots), you enter a south-facing lounge / dining room off which are doors leading to a kitchen and a ground floor double bedroom. Access from the bedroom leads to a full en suite...

We saw Buckden and the surrounding Wharfdale countryside at its best with glorious sunshine and blue skies. The cottage was in pristine condition on arrival, and offers 3 tastefully decorated bedrooms, a cozy and comfortable sitting room, 2 spacious bathrooms and a cute, new kitchen....More

I’ll try to ignore the perfect weather we enjoyed throughout the week in the beautiful Upper Wharfedale and concentrate on the accommodation! Heron Ghyll, part of a three cottage complex, and was located away from the main road through Buckden and proved a very quiet...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.
