  • “The lovely Yorkshire Dales!”


    We chose Sykes as there was a good choice of cottages in the area we chose. East Cottage was just perfect. It had everything you could need, was immaculately clean and a wonderful place to come back to after a day exploring. Just outside Hawes it was not too far from shops and pubs etc but far enough away to be peaceful and a great place to rest and recharge. This holiday was just what we needed and to top it all off the weather was perfect too. I would definitely book with Sykes again. Thankyou

About the property

Hawes 1.4 miles.

Tucked away in the quaint hamlet of Appersett, just over a mile away from Hawes, is the striking 17th century dwelling, East House.

A charming abode exuding an abundance of character, this Wensleydale cottage features creative, traditional styling, which perfectly compliments its original features such as the old oak beams and stone flagged floor, and offers a delightful setting for a small family getaway or a romantic break to the countryside for two.

Spend your evenings snuggled up in front of the gorgeous 18th century stone and cast-iron open fire, as you watch all of your favourite movies on Netflix.

Continue through to the pretty country-style kitchen/diner where you can rustle up many delectable treats with the help of the wide range of appliances that lie within, before gathering at the beautiful wood dining table to tuck in to your meals whilst enjoying quality time with your significant other.

When you begin to feel yourself tire, take yourself off to the restful ground-floor single benefiting from its very own en-suite shower room, or climb the staircase to the wonderfully decorated king-size and discover a bright and spacious en-suite bathroom where you can indulge in a lengthy afternoon soak in the tub.

Start your mornings with a tasty cup of coffee out in the enclosed front garden as you embrace your lovely surroundings and breath in the fresh countryside air.

Grab your walking boots and delight in a short stroll to the Hardraw Force Waterfall, before heading to the centre of Hawes for a hearty breakfast at one of the many local cafés.

Take a tour of the Dales Countryside Museum and explore Aysgill Force, or travel across to Middleham and uncover The Forbidden Corner.

Head underground through the longest show cave within the UK, White Scar Cave, and spot the imposing 18th century architecture of Ribblehead Viaduct as you embark on an awe-inspiring hike along the incredible Ingleton Waterfalls Trail.

With all this to do and more, a holiday to East House is simply not to be missed!

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.
