About The Old SmithyIn a corner of the Yorkshire Dales this secluded, single-storey cottage is perfect for wildlife lovers.
The Old Smithy is a small single storey building tucked away in a peaceful corner of the tiny village of Buckden, in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. Stone walls and exposed beams add to the charm of this one-bedroom nook.
Enjoy the cottage’s secluded location and head out for a ramble in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. There are a number of villages nearby if you need to stop for refreshments along the way.
Further afield, Fountains Abbey is just a 50 miles drive. Explore this historic site and deer park packed with a wide range of wildlife. Nearby Skipton also makes for a great day out and its castle is well worth a visit.
