The property

An outstanding stone-built terraced property, centrally located in the old market town of Hawes in Wensleydale. Fully renovated, this first-class cottage provides an ideal holiday home for small groups and families to get together and enjoy beautiful Wensleydale. Featuring spacious and contemporary styling throughout, this is a wonderful holiday base. The ground floor features a lovely sitting room with adjoining dining room, with cosy woodburning stove, and a stylish kitchen. The first floor features a beautiful designer bathroom, a delightful master bedroom with king-size bed and lovely en-suite. A further two bedrooms complement the layout and provide flexible sleeping arrangements for visitors. With its central location overlooking the main street, a south-facing terraced with furniture and with Gayle Beck flowing on the opposite side of the courtyard, this is a wonderful base for guests to relax and soak up the special atmosphere that the region offers. Bridge House is the perfect place for those wishing to be in the very heart of a thriving community, as traditional old pubs, fine restaurants and shops can be found amongst the nooks and crannies of the old town. There are fabulous walks from the doorstep, including Hardraw Force, England's highest unbroken waterfall, and the Pennine Way. The more energetic can face the famous Three Peaks challenge, as it is just a short drive away, while Gayle Mill, a fully-restored 19th century sawmill, which featured on Channel 4's How Britain Worked, is well worth a visit.

About the location


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.
