Find a Cottage



Not titled ‘dale’ but a small picturesque dale non the less. At its head, the towering Buckden Pike, limiting access to neighbouring Wharfedale to only bridleways and footpaths, and at its foot the acclaimed village of West Burton sitting at the juncture of Walden, Bishopdale and Wensleydale.

There is no village, only farms and houses scattered on the hillsides amid woodland and tree lined meadows that rise from the bubbling Walden Beck to the open, heather topped fellsides above. The valley gently twists and turns shyly revealing more of its charm with every bend. A truly  upland dale of small proportions but with immense character and deep tranquillity.

Really escape the world for a while, just breathe in the fresh country air and sounds of the country side. Explore West Burton, Leyburn, Hawes and all the little villages in between in Wensleydale. Visit Aysgarth Falls, Cauldron Falls, Bolton Castle, Middleham Castle and The Forbidden Corner, or travel a little further and enjoy Bedale, Northallerton, Richmond and Ripon.
