This beautifully newly fully refurbished Grade 2 listed cottage dating from the 17th Century is both quaint and quirky, having been very tastefully furnished the cottage retains many historic features with original stone mullioned windows giving it its name and a superb huge 17th Century inglenook fireplace retaining its open fire lighting up the sitting room , ideal for a cosy winter warming.

Mullions sits at the foot of Buckden Pike , a commanding 2303ft summit  which climbs steeply behind the cottage with numerous walks and some fantastic cycling such as the famed Fleet Moss hill climb radiating direct from the house. The village pub serves excellent meals and is only 250m away with the village shop just beyond.

A particular feature of the house is its fabulous terraced garden climbing the hillside behind the house and ablaze with colour in season.

Buckden is one of the most beautiful Dales villages , nestled at the top of Wharfedale and surrounded by truly stunning countryside. With the Wensleydale  market towns of Hawes and Leyburn and sights like Bolton Castle and the Wensleydale Creamery of Wallace and Gromit fame lying a 30 minutes drive away.  Another 30 minute drive south will take you to Grassington, with its cobbled square, shops, public houses, the village museum, small cafes, restaurants as well as the Grassington Folk Museum which houses a collection which tells the story of Wharfedale. For those seeking shopping or sights York, Harrogate and Leeds lie within 90 minutes drive with Skipton , 18 miles to the South, supporting a full array of supermarkets and sheds plus a super castle.


Hallway: Entered through a glazed door set into the original 17th Century stone doorway the entrance hall is stone floored with a convenient cupboard for storing coats and boots after a good day’s walking.

Kitchen/Diner :  Stretching across the entire width of the house this is a fabulous double room with stone floors and a glazed door opening to the rear to the garden and giving stunning views up Buckden Pike. The kitchen was new in February 2021 and features a full range of tasteful cream coloured units with oak worksurfaces. The cream range cooker is joined by an integrated fridge freezer , dishwasher and washing machine/dryer. A farmhouse pine table and chairs gives that country feel and seats 8 with an antique rocking chair adding some fun. A wall mounted TV completes the room.

Sitting Room : This truly stunning room is dominated by the enormous 17th Century inglenook fireplace spreading the entire width of the room and still showing the smoke blackening of centuries of use. The open stone fireplace is great for winter warmth and atmosphere. The original stone mullioned windows are another beautiful historic feature with twin cushioned window seats. The carved mahogany gold coloured three piece suite compliments the history of the room perfectly and again a TV completes the room.

Downstairs Bathroom : New in February 2021 with the rest of the refurbishment the ground floor bathroom boasts a large walk in shower , washbasin and WC with a window to the rear with views of the garden.

Stairs : The original stone staircase is carpeted and curves gently up to the second floor with an attractive black wrought iron banister.


Master Bedroom : Stretching the full width of the house the master bedroom is a large and luxurious room with pine country super king sized bed with pocket sprung mattress for extra comfort. The superb 17th Century stone mullioned windows to the front give excellent views over the local manor house , historic 18th Century Buckden House , which lies across the lane behind its high stone walls. A huge black ceiling beam adds more history to this delightful room. To the rear another window gives views over the pretty garden and on to the steeply rising Buckden Pike. A range of beautifully built in wardrobes and cupboards gives plenty of storage and a dressing table aids getting ready for that trip to the pub !

Bedroom 2 : At the opposite end of the landing this bedroom has a pine country king sized bed again with pocket sprung mattress, with a range of built in wardrobes giving plenty of storage for all your holiday attire. The views from this room are to the front of the beautiful formal gardens of Buckden House and then onto the steep tree clad fells.

Bedroom 4 : A lovely single pine country bed and pine wardrobe unit with views over the garden to the rear. A roof skylight with blind makes this a very light and airy room.

Outside: The gated stone paved drive will take two large cars . The garden is simply stunning , rising in a series of stone paved terraces up the hillside and in season awash with colour from the many herbaceous borders and shrubberies . Wooden benches and tables on two different levels of the terrace offer dining options with superb views over the top of the house to the fells opposite.
