Buckden and the Local Area

Buckden itself is a village at the top of Wharfedale, where the road splits in two. Both branches run over to Wensleydale: One up over the very top via Hubberholme and Yockenthwiate, the other via Cray and Bishopdale, and past West Burton. Buckden sits on the River Wharfe and the Dales Way passes by. The village pub, The Buck Inn, is a large Georgian Coaching Inn. There are two hamlets a mile or two further up the dale, Hubberholme with its ancient parish church (J B Priestley's favourite church, his ashes are held there) and Cray. In Hubberholme you can visit The George Inn, a pretty whitewashed pub opposite the church and next to the river. At Cray you have the marvellously friendly White Lion. Both pubs serve good pub food in front of open fires, fabulous settings for a lunchtime pint or an evening meal.

The Yorkshire Dales is perfect walking country, although there is plenty to see and do which does not involve walking. There are market towns, castles, ruined abbeys, cheese making, model farms, steam railways, picturesque villages, pubs, upmarket restaurants and so much more all within a short driving distance. And if you're looking for that perfect winter setting, Buckden is high enough that we usually have snow during the winter.
