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.

Kettlewell 5 miles; Hawes 12 miles.

Nestling at the foot of Buckden Pike, near the head of Upper Wharfedale, this idyllic village makes the perfect place from which to explore the wonderful scenery and pretty villages of this magnificent Dale. Much of Upper Wharfedale is National Trust owned – an indication of the beauty of its classic countryside, with dry-stone walls and barns, important flower-rich hay meadows and valleyside woodland. Undoubtedly, this is one of the best walking areas in the Dales with The Dales Way passing nearby. The village itself comprises a cluster of stone-built cottages and houses with a traditional green at its centre. A perfect location for a holiday!

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.

by Mrs Bartlett on February 13th 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!

by Mr Quayle on September 21st 2015

The cottage was very comfortable, warm and spacious for the two of us and our dog. In a fabulous location in Buckden, surrounded by hills and walks from the door. It was handy to have a couple of friendly pubs on our doorstep! Served good food too.

Comfort with class by Julie B on August 29th 2015

a beautiful clean, well appointed, equipped cottage in a fantastic setting. Perfect for relaxing or being more adventurous. Dog friendly as is the pub next door, a bonus.

by Mrs Cottingham on August 15th 2015

The cottage was finished to a high spec' and had everything that we needed in it. The village was quiet and there were some good local walks.

by Mr Ford on June 22nd 2015

Liked the location and quality of the accommodation.

by Mr Noble on May 9th 2015

The situation was excellent and the cottage was extremely well equipped. A beautiful location and the nearby Buck Inn was handy for good quality food.

by Mrs Cummings on March 9th 2015

We had a lovely couple of days at Mill Cottage - gorgeous location and the cottage was cosy, clean and beautifully furnished.

by Mr Parkes on February 7th 2015

Mill Cottage was fantastic, so cosy and charming. Great location and the locals are so friendly. We had a lovely holiday and could find no fault with anything.

by Mr Hynes on December 13th 2014

Idyllic detached cottage in a perfect location next to a lovely waterfall stream with a pub next door and beautiful walks from the doorstep.

by Mr Carratt on December 2nd 2014

A fantastic cottage in a beautiful location, perfect for a relaxing weekend in the dales. Great bathroom, kitchen and living room.

by Miss Weck on August 19th 2014

We enjoyed sitting in front of the fireplace after lovely walks during the day. We also enjoyed cooking for ourselves in the very well equipped kitchen and then having a nice Ale at The Buck Inn. It was very helpful to have free Wifi!

Lovely cottage by A FlipKey verified reviewer on August 17th 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.

April 2014 by A FlipKey verified reviewer on August 8th 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.

by Miss Williamson on July 26th 2014

We liked the location, excellent scenery and found it nice to have a pub nearby that served good food.

by Mrs Gee on June 22nd 2014

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.

by Mr Hipwell on May 22nd 2014

In an excellent position for touring the Moors and walking, with many enjoyable holiday attractions within easy reach. The best holiday cottage we have had from you!

by Mr Mudd on April 26th 2014

Superb little cottage in a beautiful location. The owners had catered to their guests every need and the quality and attention to detail was second to none. All this acquainted to a very relaxing holiday, we would recommend to family and friends without any hesitation.

by Mrs Mastin on April 19th 2014

The cottage was spotlessly clean when we arrived. It was cosy, comfortable and in a fantastic location. Buckden is a lovely village with a warm and welcoming pub serving good food and ales. This was our 2nd visit and we will be back!

by Mrs Exton on November 22nd 2013

The cottage was warm and cosy, very welcoming, and we enjoyed the scenery and bird life. The fishing was excellent at Kilnsey, and we came home with many trout for the freezer. Definitely a place to return to!

by Mrs Wood on September 26th 2013

Very comfortable bed. Efficient central heating, very cosy. Tasteful decor which suited cottage. Lovely location so close to stream.

Characterful cottage in a characterful village by Maria on August 30th 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.

by Mr Marshall on August 3rd 2013

The cottage was very comfortable, and in an ideal location.

by Mr Compton on July 6th 2013

The cottage was very clean in a quiet location, we had a great time.

by Mr Mastin on May 31st 2013

Cottage was fabulous. Spotlessly clean, warm and welcoming. Had everything we needed. In a beautiful location.

by Mrs Carter on March 18th 2013

A warm, cosy cottage, surrounded by beautiful scenery and walks from the door. What more can you ask for?

A great base for walking in the Dales by A FlipKey verified reviewer on February 20th 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.

by Mr Hepworth on December 22nd 2012

Great location for walking.

Idilic cosy cottage by A FlipKey verified reviewer on May 2nd 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.

by Mr Cox on March 13th 2012

Lovely quiet cottage, clean bright and very relaxing. Lots of walks from the door.

by Prof Dale on November 28th 2011

Mill Cottage is in a lovely location and very comfortable.

by Mr Norgate on August 22nd 2011

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.

A very comfortable and delightful location by Dave Smith on August 20th 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.

fantastic walking area by A FlipKey verified reviewer on August 18th 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.

by Mrs Gammon on June 20th 2011

Situated in a beautiful village, with many walks close by. The cottage was an ideal base.

by Mr Fildes on March 2nd 2011

Superb location, really excellently decorated and maintained. A very cosy and homely cottage, it couldn't have been better. The owners are very helpful

by Mr Mutimer on January 21st 2011

Lovely cosy cottage in gorgeous location. The snow made our Christmas one to remember and would love to return!

by Mr Waller on January 17th 2011

Perfect location in the Dales for walking and having a great relaxing break.

by Mr Kirby on August 16th 2010

Excellent cottage in an excellent location for walking and sightseeing. Peaceful and relaxing setting.

Quiet corner in the Dales by A FlipKey verified reviewer on June 4th 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.

by Mr Smith on June 3rd 2010

Could not fault the property which was very quaint and comfortable. The area was excellent for walking and pub food.

by Mr Burt on June 3rd 2010

Fantastic Cottage, one of the best we have stayed in. Fantastic location. Can't fault the holiday at all.

by Mrs Pears on May 4th 2010

Loved the location and local amenities. Lovely to have easy walks, pubs, tea rooms and a shop on the doorstep.

by Mr Hipwell on May 4th 2010

A beautiful cottage in a quiet peaceful village, in one of the most lovely parts of Yorkshire

The holiday was a delight. The cottage was fully fitted out and in a great setting ....would use again.

Stunning property, well furnished, very homely and clean. Great family home. Location of cottage beautiful. Great walks from doorstep. Plenty of pubs in surrounding area serving good food and beer.

Beautiful cottage in a lovely location and we were able to take the dog.

This is a fantastic cottage, which we have been to before. It is a superb location, very comfortable and peaceful.

by Mr Yate on February 1st 2010

Lovely bathroom and clean cottage, very quiet.

Beautiful Yorkshire Dales holiday by A FlipKey verified reviewer on December 7th 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.

The nicest cottage we have rented through Sykes Cottages by A FlipKey verified reviewer on December 2nd 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.

by Mrs Clark on November 17th 2009

Lovely cottage in a quiet location. Good walks straight from the door.

by Mr Watson on November 2nd 2009

A lovely spacious cottage, beautifully presented.

by Mrs Edge on August 31st 2009

Peace and quiet in a very comfortable cottage - best ever from Sykes!

by Mr Gill on August 30th 2009

The view's were breath-taking & the walk's were very pleasant. There were plenty of places to visit & small villages to explore. Over all a very enjoyable holiday!

by Mr Potts on August 12th 2009

A very nice cottage in a lovely village. The Buck Inn does good food. Excellent location for all types of walking with amazing scenery.

by Mrs Hajder on April 14th 2009

Peaceful location, good pub next door and lovely walks from the door.

by Mr Wright on April 8th 2009

A fantastic cottage.

by Mrs Tolay on March 23rd 2009

It represented very good value for money and we have no complaints whatsoever. Also nice that you can take a dog!!

by Mr & Mrs Ashcroft on March 6th 2009

This is the best cottage we have stayed in. Very clean, comfortable, modern and very well equipped. The area is outstanding. We have had a most enjoyable break and will certainly book again.

by Mrs Thornton on December 12th 2008

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.

by Mrs Punter on September 2nd 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!

by Mr Farrer on June 30th 2008

The cottage was absolutely delightful and spotlessly clean. We shall certainly use Sykes Cottages again and many thanks.

by Ms Watson & Wilcock on June 17th 2008

Modern equipment, great cottage and a wonderful location.

by Mr Slawther on April 22nd 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 !

by Miss Hill on April 5th 2008

A wonderful location and a lovely cottage.
