Clifford House Farm Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Clifford House Farm is a detached stone built farmhouse within the village of Buckden, twelve miles from the town of Hawes in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This cottage sleeps twelve people and has five bedrooms consisting of one super king-size double with fold-out single bed, one king-size double with en-suite shower, two twin bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor and one family room with three single beds, as well as a family bathroom. The cottage also has a large kitchen with dining area, and two sitting rooms, one with an open fire and one with a multi-fuel stove. Outside, this cottage has off road parking for three cars and a patio with garden furniture and BBQ. Clifford House Farm is a brilliant family holiday home within a National Park, which is renowned for its stunning countryside.

Located at the foot of Buckden Pike, and close to the head of Upper Wharfedale, the idyllic village of Buckden is the perfect place to start exploring the wonderful scenery and pretty towns of this magnificent Dale. Much of Upper Wharfedale is owned by the National Trust and is composed of dry-stone walls and barns, important flower-rich hay meadows and valleyside woodland. Renowned for its walking routes, this region is home to the famous Dales Way, which passes close to Buckden Pike. The village itself is comprised of a cluster of stone built cottages and houses set around a traditional green. The village is also home to the famous 'Buck Inn' a Georgian coaching pub that retains 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?

The new bathrooms and kitchen are fabulous. The house is very well equipped and is spacious but also feels homely.
Mrs Pringle
June 2016
Liked the situation in the centre of the village and all its amenities. Also, the log burners in both rooms made it very cosy. The big kitchen table seated 11 of us very comfortably and the Aga was great for warming the plates and also drying our clothes after a thorough soaking whilst walking the Dales Way.
Mrs Hayden
May 2015
A lovely farm house which was well equipped, perfect for large family party of all ages. It was well situated with fantastic walks from the house.
Mr Chisholm
June 2015
Liked everything! The Farmhouse has been refurbished and this was deeply appreciated by members of our party, especially the showers and kitchen. The pub next door is brilliant and the inhabitants friendly, plus the fact that any description of the Dales cannot do them justice.
Mrs Tyler
May 2015
The cottage is in a great position for exploring the Dales by foot or car, and having a pub almost on our doorstep was very convenient. The cottage was large but still retained a cosy feel to it and was very comfortable.
Mr Curry
December 2014
An ideal property for our family get together.
Mr Pearson
February 2015
The house was perfect for a family requiring five comfortable bedrooms, two separate lounges and a large, warm kitchen seating ten people round a large kitchen table. It is sited in a lovely village with a welcoming pub and shop in wonderful walking country and scenery. What more does one want?
Mr Kay
December 2012
Wonderful holiday. Lovely location. Would love to return.
Mr Langtree
May 2013
Over 11 years of walking, this was the best property we have had. Clifford House had everything we required and the Buck Inn round the corner made you very welcome. Would certainly recommend it.
Mr Ariaens
July 2013
Beautiful surroundings, and possibilities for hiking. Buckden is close to a lot of places of interest. Buckden Inn as a neighbour was also very pleasant.
Miss Curry
December 2013
Lovely place to stay, along with being convenient for travelling to other villages. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, could not find any faults.
Mrs Mansfield

Mr Turner

A very good accommodation for a large party. It was a good location for walking and general base for excursions.
Mrs Forrester
October 2014
Clifford House Farm was a very roomy, warm property. We had 4 children in the party who loved it. It had all that we required for a base to do walking etc. The Buckden area was a great location.

Peaceful location
Miss Crawford

We liked the location - very quiet and peaceful.
Mrs Lawty
August 2012
Fantastic location, with lots of walks on the doorstep. There were 11 of us so it was great for a family get together.
Miss Poole
July 2012
The farmhouse was brilliant for us. There was plenty of space and we were all pleased with the layout and facilities. The closeness to the pike was fantastic and meant it was easy to walk the dogs. Food in the village was lovely and despite the weather we managed to get walks and picnics in. It was particularly good for families as when you were at one end of the house those at the other end couldn't hear any noise!
Mr Hill
August 2012
The location of the cottage was excellent. The village very friendly. The countryside around Buckden is stunning.
Mrs Elborough
October 2012
The cottage was extremely spacious but cosy at the same time. Gorgeous kitchen had some good evenings around the huge table. Plentiful supply of logs for the fires. Excellent position in the village. Well situated for walks in the Dales.
Mr Batho
August 2009
Very clean and felt very spacious even though there were 9 of us. Tea/coffee/biscuits waiting for us on arrival was a nice touch!
Mrs Kelly
August 2009
The house is ideal for a group holiday, spacious and comfortable. In a beautiful location with great walks from the village. We found both Sykes Cottages and the owner very helpful. There are some excellent pubs close by, with very good food (and good beer!) We'd be happy to stay at Clifford House Farm again, and will definitely be using Sykes Cottages for future holidays.
Mr Middleton
August 2011
The cottage was spacious even with the full complement of eleven people. The location offered outstanding views of the Yorkshire Dales with plenty of walks on the doorstep.
Mr Law
October 2009
Good location, good weather, good accommodation. Well equipped kitchen. Two lounges for watching TV or quiet reading also appreciated.
Mrs Dewhurst
February 2010
Lovely big family kitchen, always warm, even in the bitter cold, due to the AGA style appliance. The real heart of the property. The house was big enough to have a holiday with lots of family members yet still enough room to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet. Superb walks straight from the house.
Mr Foster
August 2010
Everything - we had a great time, the house worked very well for us.
Mr Evans
March 2011
Good location - Buckden is in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales, felt like we were really getting away from it all. Clifford House Farm was very nice to stay in.
Ms Lasseron
November 2009
Wonderful location! So many walking possibilities from the doorstep. A lovely, warm and welcoming cottage. Very helpful owner.
Mrs Rust
June 2009
A very enjoyable holiday. House situated in a beautiful part of Wharfedale with walks direct from door - choice of 3 completely different places to eat - all within 3 minutes walk and all meals absolutely delicious. House was large and comfortable - lots of olde character and everyone had a lovely time. Recommended to our friends and we will visit again, hopefully. - BRILLIANT!!!!
Mrs Allsopp
August 2008
The cottage was in a lovely position and just the right size for our needs. It was comfortable and warm and had a really friendly feel about it. We all enjoyed the holiday very much, especially visiting the restaurant attached to the village shop, which was just round the corner.
Mr Burrows
January 2009
All the facilities were of a good standard. The linen and beds were very comfortable. Open fires were also excellent.
Mr Carlson
April 2009
Great place, great company, great weather, great food and an excellent cottage. What more could anyone want?
Mrs Davidson

Excellent property - very well equipped and situated. Availability of fuel for fires very much appreciated!
Mrs Stanton
October 2007
The location of the cottage was ideal for walking in the Dales. The cottage was lovely, providing great accomodation for three families.
Mr Snow
December 2007
The area, which is fantastic, the space in the house for a large group, the fact that the house felt warm on entry (due to the rayburn being on before we arrived), and that despite very cold weather, we were always comfortable. This is a house where you immediately feel at home, and the ability to have real fires is great.
Ms Dahlstrom
February 2008
Great location, comfortable warm cottage with all the necessary amenities.
Mrs Bownass
April 2008
The size of the property for 10 adults was ideal - a great location and it was lovely and warm.
Mrs Barton
October 2006
The house was well equipped and comfortable and well situated for walks directly from the house.
Mrs Ross
May 2008
The cottage was an excellent size for a party of 10, with plenty of room to escape from the 'madding crowd' if necessary. The kitchen was homely and an excellent place to congregate round the table. The location was beautiful. General cleanliness was excellent.
Mr Frewin
August 2006
The location was excellent for walking either at a low level along the river or up on the hills. The property overall was lovely and spacious and well equipped. The large dining table in the kitchen was lovely for family gatherings and gave a really homely feel.
Mr Unnuk
July 2006
The farmhouse was great for what we needed, i.e. a large group of people coming from a number of locations to spend time together in the middle of the Dales.
Miss Collingwood
March 2005
The property is fantastic - I'd stayed there before and was glad to find an excuse to go back. The owner is also very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent for hill walking, and perfect for taking a complete break.
Mrs Beard
June 2005
A great location for walking. The owner was extremely helpful...
Mr Spence
April 2006
Cosy accommodation, perfect for a walking holiday base. An excellent location for access to the Dales in general.
Mrs Swain
December 2004
An excellent property for families or friends sharing. Excellent walks on the doorstep. A Shop and pub only 1 minutes walk.
Mr James
December 2004
The Buck pub is 2 mins walk away and is excellent for food and beer. You can start out on beautiful walks direct from the property.
Miss Williams
December 2004
Lovely cottage, very roomy. Would definitely consider going back.
Mrs Miller
December 2004
The Buck Inn does the best 'Haddock chips'. Lots of space for 2 families in the house. Very well equipped - we went home with most of the stuff we brought up!
The Bryants
October 2011
Lovely cottage. Very comfortable and clean. A garden would have made it slightly better as we had small children and couldn't use the patio which was at the end of the lane. It is however in a lovely peaceful spot right next to the Dales way and Buckden Pike. Easy driving distance to the Three Peaks, Skipton, Bolton Castle, Leyburn, Hawes.
April 2010
Lovely property, well equipped for large party, lovely and warm, fantastic walks direct from property. Great walks within easy driving distance. Walks of all types for all abilitys. On suite really weird, a shower in a bedroom but hey ho it worked. Superb warm, large kitchen.
May 2011
The ouse was excellent for our needs. Enough bedrooms to sleep us all. Games to keep us entertained, a week functioned kitchen. Wood and fire to keep us warm. From the village we were able to walk straight out of the house on to an excellent walk along the Dale tops without needing a car. Only downside - its a shame the pub has closed down - hope it reopens soon.
Mrs Kuby
December 2004
Location good for walking straight from the cottage. Lots of things to do and see within driving distance. Fountains Abbey excellent - spent a whole day there.
April 2012
The house was very nice ,once we had got it warm and that took 3 day's,so not the best start to a holiday,with young grandchildren.Buckden is very nice,pity about the buck inn,as we were looking forward to eating there,no food and very run down.What we liked best was the wonderful kitchen ,and the very large table,and the only warm place to sit !.least never go there in the winter,unless the owner has told the caretaker to put the heating on.

I stayed with my two sons, daughter-in-law and a bunch of Matt's mates from Australia. They were over for fell walking from pub to pub, with about 15 miles of rugged hill between. Jen and I were backup drivers, delivering to the departure point (pub) and collecting them from destination (pub), where they were watching the WorldCup Rugby tournament. Another reason for their visit. Jen was mummy to them all, while we both did the shopping daily, and enjoyed excellent pub lunches in the area. while the lads were hiking the hills. We took our turn in cooking the evening meal, in the well appointed kitchen while they watched more rugby on the TV. Plenty of room for the 8 of us, plus we celebrated Matt's Grandpa' 99 'th birthday with other family members including my other daughter-in-law, Granddaughter, and first wife. A very large kitchen table and two comfortable living rooms, one with a wood burner making a cosy warm atmosphere. Lovely place to stay: could not fault it, and two minutes from the Buck Inn. I would revisit if I could!
Miss Edwards
December 2004
A thouroughly wonderful location and excellent standard of accomodation. Nice to have all the comforts of home including DVD player and DVDs to watch as well as amazing fires.
Mrs Bankes
December 2004
We were totally impressed with the cottage...The village is lovely and picturesque and we had a lovely walk along the river to Kettlewell which is about 4 miles to see the Scarecrow festival which is held there.
February 2010
We rented this cottage for my husband's 60th birthday - We invited some of our friends. We all had the best of times. We had the birthday meal at the restaurant attached to the village shop - it was brilliant. Plenty of other places to eat in the village, all very good. Did some lovely walks straight from the house and must return some day to do some more. The cottage was huge - lovely family kitchen where we all ate breakfast together. Lovely bedrooms and 2 living rooms. so plenty of room for all. Recommend this cottage and hope to return, maybe for MY 60th!!
February 2010
