Here are a few suggestions of Things To Do . . . . .
The Millennium Trail to Starbotton, meandering back along the the banks of the river Wharfe, or for the more energetic routes up to Buckden Pike.
Nestling at the foot of Buckden Pike, near the head of Upper Wharfedale, Buckden is a great place for walkers, cyclists, and those who want a break from the hustle and bustle of a busy life.
The Little House at Fairlawn 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 valley-side woodland.
Undoubtedly, this is one of the best walking areas in the Dales with Lady Anne’s Way passing through the village, the Dales Way passing nearby, plus the well known triangle walk, taking in the villages Cray and Hubberholme;
It also acts as a hub for anyone wishing to travel further afield. Grassington, famed for its Dickensian Christmas celebrations and the summer festival is just a short drive away, as is Hawes, the home of Wensleydale cheese plus various craft shops, Outhwaites the Ropemakers, Hawes Auction Mart, the Mill at Gayle. Then there is the nearby Hardraw Force, and Aysgarth Falls.
If, however, you’re looking for other leisure activities the list is endless.
Fishing, climbing, horse riding, bird watching, golf, horse racing and painting can all be found within easy reach.
Dark Sky Tourism is also becoming more popular in and around Buckden and the Yorkshire Dales National Park as a whole.
The list goes on and the choice is entirely yours.
