  • "The cottage was exactly as described in the information."

    Burtersett is very quiet, the neighbours were friendly, access to the cottage was good and parking was easy. We didn't use the mixed-fuel fires (my husband has chest problems), and we didn't use the facilities in the outhouse - washing machine and toilet - which are accessed outside by walking across the yard; there is no tumble-drier. The kitchen is well-appointed, with everything we needed to cook full meals. The TV is smart, and we were able to use BBC i-Player, ITV Hub etc. We were warm and comfortable, and found the location good for exploring the immediate area. There are some lovely walks close-by, and we didn't do a lot of driving, which suited us. We would stay there again.

  • "We had a lovely week at the cottage."

    It’s very comfortable for a family of 4 (2 teenagers) and a dog. We enjoyed walking and there are several paths on the door. Very peaceful location.

  • "Had a lovely ‘first holiday since lockdown’."

    We didn’t use the car all week - you can easily walk into Hawes along buttercup filled meadows. It’s very very quiet so be prepared to relax and listen to the birds singing! We were lucky enough to be able to watch the swallows feeding their babies in a nest at the back window. We walked along the Roman Road into Bainbridge and had a lovely lunch at the cafe there- well worth the pull up the hill! We also had the most amazing chocolate cake at the Laburnum tea rooms in Hawes. Worth taking note of the description of the rear ‘garden’ as it is a shared area with next door who have access past the back door into a small lane. The neighbours are very friendly and we enjoyed their company ( especially the feline and canine members of the family!!) .

  • "The cottage was not only clean and well equipped, but everything was good quality."

    The detailed instructions helped us find everything we needed and gave us confidence that we had left the cottage as we had found it. It very much felt like a home away from home. While there we had several issues with our cars, but there was enough to do within walking distance to keep us busy. But at those times that we were not busy, the cottage itself was quiet and pleasant, but with enough people around (including the lovely neighbours) that we did not feel isolated.

  • "- Great location in Wenselydale, 5 mins drive/15 mins walk to Hawes, walk out front door onto hills - Really comfy cottage with 2 log burners - Very nice, responsive hosts."

    We stayed over Christmas/NYE and hosts provided Christmas decorations, and left a bottle of Prosecco - Really well equipped kitchen - Would definitely stay again

  • "The cottage is stylish, spacious and comfortable."

    Beautiful location with numerous walks right on the doorstep. We had great weather and will definitely be back. It was worth knowing there was no tumble dryer because that meant we took extra clothes. The tv is not 'smart' so we were glad of the DVDs we took for cosy evenings with the log burner.

  • "We had a great week in Primrose Cottage."

    Very comfortable house and we were impressed with the kitchen as it had everything we needed. Some cottages are a little short of the things you need to cook etc, but not here. Double bed in front bedroom extremely comfortable. Only slight grumble was that we had no instructions in what to recycle and where to place rubbish. I feel very uncomfortable putting glass, paper and food into a black bin as recycling is so endemic in our society. Please don't see this as a major gripe, but clear instructions will help. Overall, we loved the fact that we could walk directly from the cottage, enjoyed the wonderful views and loved the architecture of the hamlet.

  • "Lovely well equipped cottage in a beautiful peaceful location."

    We saw red squirrel and barn owl from the front door! Cottage clean and more spacious then expected. Views and walks from the door were brilliant and loads to do in local area. Quiet spot but not far to amenities in Hawes. Cottage was chilly when we arrived but soon worked out the electric heaters. Only negative was we couldn’t get the lounge fire to stay light. I would recommend packing slippers as floors were cold.

The property

A traditional, stone-built, mid-terrace cottage located on a quiet lane in the small hamlet of Burtersett, one mile from Hawes in beautiful Wensleydale.

Set amongst the lovely rolling Dales countryside, this cosy cottage provides the ideal retreat for those seeking a truly get away from it all break, boasting great views from most of the rooms, together with wonderful walking opportunities from the doorstep.

This delightful cottage is full of character and charm throughout, including old ceiling beams, sash windows and the original stone flagged floor.

The sitting room is cosy and comfortable with a multi-fuel stove, ideal to relax after a hard day’s walking on the nearby fells.

The well-equipped kitchen and dining area boasts a multi-fuel stove and is a great place to sit around, prepare sumptuous meals and catch up on old times.

Two double bedrooms, one with a king-size bed and one with twin beds as well as a modern bathroom, all come together to provide a wonderful stay in this charming cottage.

Outside, the private frontage has a lovely bench on which to relax and soak up the sunshine, and to the rear of the property there is a small enclosed, shared yard suitable for sitting out.

There is fantastic countryside to all sides, from where you can explore the area of Wensleydale, often described as one of the most beautiful areas in the Yorkshire Dales.

The one mile walk from the back door, downhill on the paved path through the Hay Meadows to Hawes is one not to be missed, and guests can enjoy a good choice of pubs, places to eat and picturesque teashops in this popular market town.

This attractive cottage is a great touring base from which to discover the Ribblehead Viaduct, Three Peaks, the village of Dent with its brewery, the attractive old market town of Sedbergh and the castles at Bolton and Middleham.

Leyburn is another town not to be missed, and over the hills, Kettlewell and Grassington are all just a short drive away.

An opportunity for that well-deserved break in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.

About the location


Hawes 1 mile; Semerwater 3 miles; Leyburn 16 miles; Ingleton 18 miles

The picturesque and traditional Wensleydale village of Burtersett, which dates back to Norse times, is surrounded by beautiful Dales countryside and is home to a population of red squirrels now living around the village. It is an ideal base for touring the many attractions of the Dales, such as the waterfalls at Aysgarth and Hardraw Force, plus the lake at Semerwater and Bolton Castle, to name but a few. It allows easy access to Cumbria, just 17 miles away, and the Lake District. Nearby is the bustling market town of Hawes with the award-winning Dales Countryside Museum, Wensleydale Creamery (home of Wallace and Gromit’s Wensleydale cheese) and local ropemakers. Hawes is the 'capital' of Wensleydale and has a good range of shops, pubs and eating places and a traditional weekly market.
