THE PROPERTY  
A delightful three bedroom period cottage set in the very heart of The Yorkshire Dales National Park, surrounded by stunning scenery. Immaculately presented and maintained by the current owners previously being a very successful holiday let. Now offering substantial living accommodation, either as a first or second home and also, of course, the options to use as a holiday let bringing in a substantial income. Buckden is very popular with walkers and tourists and having been involved in the sale and purchase of several holiday homes over the years, we feel that this property is very suited to the tourism industry.

BUCKDEN 
The parish of Buckden lies on the Dales Way, at the northern end of Wharfedale and consists of the village itself, nestling under the impressive bulk of Buckden Pike. There is a thriving local community, with the local economy based largely on farming and tourism. There is a local pub within the village along with a choice of tea rooms and a village store. Buckden is just 10 minutes away from the larger village of Kettlewell, with a highly recommended primary school and 30 minutes from the market town of Skipton, which plays host to a range of excellent shops, schools, restaurants and Skipton railway station which offers direct access to London and the rest of the UK (via Leeds).
