    “Excellent cottage, brilliant location.”

    We stay in Hawes every Easter and this was the best cottage we've had there. Will definitely be returning.

The property

This traditional stone-built, mid-terrace cottage is located in the heart of the popular market town of Hawes.

Full of character and charm, this cottage provides an ideal holiday home for a small group or family to get away from it all and enjoy the many delights of this thriving old Dales town.

Set over two floors, the ground floor is comprised of a spacious sitting room with warming woodburning stove, and just off this room is a cosy snug with decorative fireplace.

Both of these rooms have stone floors and original ceiling beams.

To the rear of the ground floor is a kitchen/diner with a Rayburn, old beams and exposed stonework with a door that leads you out to the garden.

The first floor provides two double bedrooms of character, a main bathroom and a single bedroom served by a small but very useful cloakroom with basin and WC.

Adjoining the cottage is a small cottage garden where you can relax with a refreshing drink whilst planning the next day’s activities.

The scenery in Upper Wensleydale is without doubt 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 one of those walks that will linger long in the memory.

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 in the town, including a working rope maker, the Dales Countryside Museum and the much publicised Wensleydale cheese factory.

Just short drives away 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 traditional old cottage, ideal for a break whatever the time of year.

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.
