Situated pretty much at the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the tiny village of Hubberholme is definitely off the beaten track. Indeed, larger scale road maps don’t show it – find Buckden and head west, following the River Wharfe. But it is worth seeking out. If you don’t find the setting of the village lovely you shouldn’t venture out of the city. Langstrothdale is one of the lesser known dales, with some serious hills around it. Hubberholme sits where Wharfedale and Langstrothdale come together, at the centre of a triangle formed by Buckden Pike, Pen-y-Ghent and Dodd Fell, all of them over 2,000 feet. The Wharfe is only a short way along its journey at this point, but is still powerful enough at times to have inundated the church well above it – legend says that fish swam among the pews during one flood. The church, St Michael’s and All Angels, is a particularly lovely one. Dating from the 12th century this simple squat building with an equally solid tower has a quiet dignity that fits the setting, though it hides a few details that bear boasting: a 16th century rood loft of note; and oaken pews hand-carved by Robert Thompson, who left his signature mouse carving on them. The church (like the village pub) was JB Priestley’s favourite, and his ashes were scattered in the graveyard. The George Inn in the village is its other landmark, with all the elements that a visitor seeking some character and comfort could demand: an open fire; good local beers; mullioned windows and flagged floors. And there’s even some living history. A candle is kept lit on the bar to denote the place is open, and also to mark the inn’s traditional role as home to the Hubberholme Parliament, when the vicar auctions some local grazing – the highest bid when the candle expires takes the land. Hubberholme is a place where visitors might welcome bad weather and an excuse to stay by the fire nursing a pint, rather than feeling obliged to stride the undoubtedly lovely countryside. But if there is time to do both, all to the good.
