From Buckdens village green a road branches from the valley road, climbing out towards Bishop`s Dale and Wensleydale. This is Buckden Rake, part of the old Roman road from Olicana (Ilkley) to Virosidum (Bainbridge, in Wensleydale). The "valley of the bucks" extended from here high into Langstrothdale. In medieval times Buckden was no more than a hunting lodge deep in the forest. Deer were hunted from Norman times up to the 1950s. Above the village is Buckden Pike, a prominent Yorkshire landmark. For five hundred years until the 1880s lead was mined up there. When Hubberholme Bridge, a mile or so upstream, was swept away in a flood in the late 18th century £200 was put up for a replacement, which was then built at Buckden. It was called Election Bridge, referring to the prospective MP who promised the bridge if he was elected.

 Property type: B & B

West Winds is an old stone cottage in an attractive and peaceful village at the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. We aim to make staying at West Winds more than just a bed for the night. When you arrive, we provide a complimentary pot of tea and home-made cake in our tearooms. Maybe youíd like to try some of our classic Yorkshire curd tart, a West Winds speciality made from an old family recipe. And in your bedroom youíll find fresh flowers, a complimentary box of Yorkshire-made Whitakerís chocolates and a help-yourself bowl of organic fruit. In the morning we serve a choice of breakfast options, including a full cooked breakfast (English or vegetarian), home-made beans on toast and a selection of Yorkshire cheeses, all served in our tearooms at a table set with bone china on a hand-embroidered cloth. Thereís so much beautiful countryside to explore around Buckden and Upper Wharfedale that West Winds can provide a great base for a long weekend or short break. Our position on the Dales Way, Inn Way and Lady Anne Clifford Way also makes the location just right for a one-night stop. In our tearooms we serve Lunch, Afternoon Tea and High Tea or Early Dinner (last orders 6pm in summer), so our guests donít have to look far for somewhere to eat. We offer home-cooked specialities that combine Yorkshire tradition with local, seasonal, organic and Fairtrade ingredients wherever possible. Most things are home-made here at West Winds. Our menu includes Yorkshire puddings filled with Dales lamb hotpot, grilled Yorkshire gammon, local Dales cheeses, home-roasted Yorkshire ham, haverbread and a range of very tempting cakes. You can relax in the tea-garden in warm weather, or warm yourself by our log fire inside when itís cold. We are open for bed and breakfast throughout 2011. Our tearooms are open daily, except Monday and Tuesday, from 1 April until the end of October, from 12.30pm to 6pm.
