The property

A stone-built semi-detached barn conversion situated on the edge of the hamlet of Worton near Hawes.

Renovated to a very high standard, this charming property retains much original character, including exposed beams, stylish window shutters and stonework, and window seats.

Laid out in the unusual and popular upside down design, the main living area at this cottage near Hawes is situated on the first floor to take advantage of the lovely views on offer.

Featuring a cosy sitting room with beams, a farmhouse-style kitchen with central dining area and two spacious bedrooms, this cottage near Hawes is great for a romantic retreat or small family getaway.

Enjoy a relaxing afternoon in the walled, outdoor area, or follow the many peaceful walks through the village and absorb the striking views.

Worton has one of the few remaining classic front room pubs at The Victoria Arms; run by the Daykin family since 1956, this gem of a pub is truly individual, with its stone-flagged floors and roaring open fire.

Whilst The Victoria Arms doesn't do food, there are pubs in Askrigg that do.

Askrigg, known as Darrowby in the TV series All Creatures Great and Small, is only a short walk across the fields or an easy drive away, and also has tea shops, a village shop and a deli/bakery.

This is a great location for walkers, from the castles at Bolton and Middleham, to Hardraw Force, England's highest single drop waterfall.

This superb cottage near Hawes is a fantastic base from which to explore all that Wensleydale and Swaledale have to offer.

About the location


Askrigg 1 mile; Bainbridge 1 mile; Hawes 5 miles.

Worton is a hamlet in Wensleydale, amidst the beautiful Yorkshire Dales countryside. Worton is home to the unique village ‘front room’ pub, The Victoria Arms, run by the same family since 1956. Just a mile from Worton is the village of Askrigg, with pubs, tea rooms, shop and a bakery. If Askrigg looks familiar it is because millions came to know it as Darrowby in the TV series of James Herriot’s ‘All Creatures Great and Small’. The countryside around Worton makes it an ideal base for walkers, with Wensleydale and Swaledale to be explored, and natural splendours such as Aysgarth Falls, Hardraw Force waterfall and Semerwater, as well as man-made attractions such as the castle at Bolton or Middleham or the towns and villages of Leyburn, Hawes or Bainbridge.
