Mill Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
This stone-built detached cottage is located by the side of a stream on a quiet lane in the heart of Buckden, one of the prettiest villages in Wharfedale Valley. Just 12 miles from Hawes, this former saw mill has been lovingly renovated and now combines original character - such as old beams and exposed stonework - with contemporary comforts. With a cosy sitting room with wood-burning stove and a bathroom with feature roll top bath, this property also features a patio overlooking the pretty stream. With the attractions of the village just moments away and the town of Hawes within easy driving distance, this is a well-situated cottage to explore everything that the surrounding countryside has to offer.

Set at the foot of Buckden Pike near the head of Upper Wharfedale, the idyllic village of Buckden is a wonderful holiday destination for any walking enthusiast. Much of Upper Wharfedale is owned by the National Trust and retains its traditional dry-stone walls and barns, important flower-rich hay meadows and valley-side woodland. The varied surrounding countryside offers a number of bridleways, cycling trails and paths whilst the village itself is composed of a cluster of stone built cottages and houses with a traditional green in the centre. The green is home to the famous 'Buck Inn' - a lovely Georgian construction retaining 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?

Oil central heating with woodburning stove in sitting room. Electric induction hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher, TV and DVD player with surround sound, radio/CD player, WiFi, selection of books/games/DVDs. Fuel, power and initial supply of logs for woodburning stove inc. in rent, additional logs can be purchased locally. Bed linen and towels inc. in rent. Cot available on request. Off road parking for 1 car, additional roadside parking nearby. Small front garden and rear patio area with garden furniture. One well-behaved dog welcome. Sorry, no smoking. Shop 3 mins walk, pub 1.4 miles. Note: There is a drop from the patio to the stream of some 4 feet, thus small children must be supervised. Note: Due to remote location, WiFi is limited. Note: This property accepts dogs only - no other pet allowed.

The cottage was one of the best we'd stayed in, really comfortable and with a lovely view of a stream and a waterfall from the living room.
Mrs Bartlett
February 2016
It was quiet and the location was lovely next to the stream. Mill Cottage was wonderful; really warm and cosy with everything we could want or need. It was an advantage having a washer/dryer as I didn't have to take dirty walking clothes home!

Mill Cottage is perfect and in a wonderful setting. The scenery is lovely and we found it all very relaxing and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The dog loved all the walks! This was our second visit to Buckden which is a lovely village and everyone is very friendly. The Buck Inn and West Winds Tea Rooms, both with very good food, are added attractions.

Mill Cottage is a lovely property and a good base for those who like walks, close enough to larger towns to shop whilst still being far enough away to enjoy the countryside.

We had a really good break at this cottage and enjoyed the snow as well. We were very comfortable. The log fire, the proximity of easy walks by the river, the village pub and village store were all a bonus. It makes an ideal retreat for 2 adults who like walking.
Mrs Punter
September 2008
A homely cottage located in a picturesque village. The fact that the cottage was so well appointed was a joy but the icing on the cake was that it was so clean! Our first visit to the Yorkshire Dales but definitely not our last. We will be back!
Mr Slawther
April 2008
This was a superb small cottage ideally suited to a couple like ourselves who enjoy Dales scenery and walking. It was a lovely comfortable and warm retreat with no passing traffic. Brilliant !

Miss Hill

A wonderful location and a lovely cottage.
December 2009
This cottage was absolutely perfect: a stream ran past both front and back doors, the decor was immaculate, the bed superbly comfortable and the deep rolltop bath an absolute boon after a day's walking. The kitchen was totally modern and well appointed, there were full instructions in the drawer about using the applicances - couldn't be better. The only disappointment was the local pub - the Buck - where the food was poorly cooked and presented, and the pub itself was over-lit and not very welcoming. Even the George at Hubberholme, although well known as a good local hostelry, seemed to have lost its vigour, and the food was again disappointing. The White Lion, up the hill from Buckden, was an awful lot better than its local rivals.
August 2014
Had a wonderful holiday at Mill Coottage, Buckden. A very cosy, well equipped cottage in a wonderful setting. Would have liked a shower as the bath is very difficult to get in and out if anyone has joint problems. We did not use the dishwasher as there wasn't enough crockery.
August 2011
A lovely comfortable warm cottage, a couple of negative points is there is no shower, and no sun shine in the evening, shaded as under trees. And the pub in the village was close. But the area was great for many lovely long walks with the meadows looking amazing.
Dave Smith
August 2011
Mill Cottage is a very comfortable place to stay, it is in a very good location for walking. Sadly the pub, 100 yards away, was closed. I understand it did open but closed again. There are good pubs within 2 miles, but it means getting the car out.
May 2012
Lovely cosy cottage Sooty ( the dog ) loved warming by the wood burner.Had a brilliant time watching the birds feed by the stream.Very high specification in kitchen & bathroom just a shame no shower. Brilliant area fantastic scenery and walks from the door. No enclosed area for dogs.
February 2013
A lovely cottage, with excellent decor. Even boasts its own stream running by the back door! The excellent Buck Inn is next door, offering great food & drink.
August 2013
Our stay in Mill Cottage was wonderful. We had some initial problems with the heating, but the owners got in touch within minutes of hearing about it. The peacefulness of the cottage and surroundings was accentuated by the bubbling brook alongside the cottage and terrace and the sound of the sheep that roam the surrounding hills. The cottage has all the amenities one could wish for. The location is great, and we loved our neighbours, the local pub, with free wifi, friendly service and good food. The village is very pretty, the surroundings beautiful. The local shop only has the very bare essentials, so pick up your groceries on the way to the cottage. That would be the only disadvantage.
August 2014
What a fantastic cottage! Spotlessly clean, well equipped, beautiful location in the middle of Upper Wharfedale with a stream running past it. Cottage has everything you need, including WiFi which has been installed since we stayed the first time. However, with the Dales on your doorstep and all the wonderful walking, WiFi is not that important! An open fire is lovely for the chillier evenings. Our daughter loved the stream and regularly put her wellies on and went exploring for 'treasures'. Perfect, and we will go back for a third visit.
December 2009
This was a perfect location for a walking and cycling holiday. We walked to Hubberholme, Kettlewell, Buckden Pike. Cycled to Starbottom, Grassington and Greenfields. The cottage was in a picturesque location with some good pubs within walking distance, and a couple of coffee shops and a convenience store in the village. The cottage was very clean and comfortable, lots of room and very well equipped. There was a really pretty seating area outside next to the stream. Unfortunately, we couldn't use it because of the swarms of midges at that time of year. We are looking forward to returning. This accommodation would provide a perfect location at any time of the year, and is probably lovely and cosy in winter.
June 2010
We had a lovely stay at Mill Cottage with a 10 week old baby; our first holiday away. The village is perfect for this type of holiday, with a shop, pub and tearoom on your doorstep as well as lots of accessible walks for all levels. Within easy driving distance there are plenty of interesting tourist days out.
