The Property

This pretty stone-built, mid-terrace cottage is located on a cobbled street just a minute’s walk from the centre of the popular market town of Hawes. Lovingly renovated and furnished, this Hawes cottage provides delightful holiday accommodation in Upper Wensleydale. Set out over three floors this Hawes cottage is a real delight, exuding much character and charm throughout to provide an ideal romantic retreat. The ground floor is comprised of a kitchen and a sitting room with a dining area and a cosy woodburning stove. The first floor provides a spacious double bedroom and access to a bathroom. The second floor boasts a single bedroom and a delightful snug, ideal for relaxing and enjoying a good book. A lovely mix of traditional and contemporary styling throughout provides a lovely feel to the cottage making it an ideal holiday home to get away from it all and enjoy a break in this outstanding area. The scenery in Upper Wensleydale is absolutely stunning, some of the finest on offer in all the Yorkshire Dales. This is walking country par excellence and a stroll alongside the River Ure, as it threads its way between the rocks and the rapids at Aysgarth, is a holiday highlight that must not be missed. Hawes is a traditional stone-built market town of character with pubs, restaurants, tea rooms and a very good selection of shops. There are interesting visitor attractions including a working rope maker, the Dales Countryside Museum and the much publicised Gayle Mill. Just short drives are the market towns of Settle, Leyburn and Richmond, whilst Aysgarth Falls, Semerwater and Hardraw Force, England's highest single drop waterfall, are all nearby. A delightful Wensleydale cottage for that much needed break in the country.

About the location

HAWES

Leyburn 16 miles.

Hawes is a popular market town in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire and is regarded as one of the honeypot tourist attractions of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Standing between Buttertubs and Fleet Moss, the town is an excellent centre for walking and touring Wensleydale and the adjoining dales of Swaledale, Cotterdale, Dentdale, Garsdale, Wharfedale and Chapel-le-Dale. Take a walk around the Hawes Town Trail, Millennium Walk, Pennine Way or along the River Ure, which is nearby. In 1998 Hawes was awarded the English Tourist Board Silver Award for the "Best Day Trip Out". Modern traffic has long replaced coaches and horse drawn wagons along its narrow streets, but market day (Tuesdays) in Hawes is as busy as ever, with a farmers’ auction attracting sheep farmers from all over the north of England. Traditional shops, cafés and inns now cater for a variety of Dales visitors as well as the local community. The award-winning Wensleydale Creamery, made famous by the animated Wallace and Grommit films, is now open to visitors so that they can see the famous cheese being made and sample the end product in a welcoming café. In the old station yard you will find the busy National Park Centre and Dales Countryside Museum. The Museum is home to the magnificent collection of Dales artefacts by the two great Dales historians and writers, Marie Hartley and Joan Ingilby.
