  • "An amazing gem of a property."

    Beautiful cottage in an amazing part of the world- we were a family of 5 plus our pooch and so many things to see and do in the area we didn’t move our car for 3 days. The house had everything you could possibly need, the owners had obviously taken a lot of time to think about supporting families, including lots of games, and dog friendly too. The little welcome pack was so nice after a long journey. The view from the living room was everyone’s favourite (including our dog) and there was a rush in a morning to get ‘the chair’ before anyone else to watch the lambs each day. Only small tip is parking is a short walk away, about a minute, but you can pull up outside to unload- this proved very tricky when there’s a car parked next door in driving back out. Would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone with a family who wants a relaxing time away in the Dales. We hope to be back soon. Thank you for letting us stay!

    Thank you so much for your wonderful feedback and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Property Owner

  • "Lovely property with many Victorian features which both me and my husband adored."

    Comfortable sofas and cleverly disguised TV in mirror above traditionally tiled fireplace in lounge. Very clean and well presented and one of the very best holiday properties we have stayed in. Lovely area to visit and one we intend to come back too. Thank you so much. No designated parking with property but we found the suggested parking on the industrial estate 3 mins walk away which we used with no problem.

    Thank you for the lovely comments, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "Wonderful location and the house had everything we needed and more to make our stay perfect."

    The welcome pack and the extras in the fridge were really appreciated. A beautiful home where a lot of thought has gone into the decoration. In our opinion, this property is top of the list of those we have stayed in and we fully intend on returning. We went there with our family and dogs to celebrate our golden wedding anniversary and it certainly felt very special.

    Congratulations on your golden wedding anniversary! Thank you very much for your kind words. We are really glad you enjoyed your stay and love our holiday cottage as much as we do. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future! Carol and Euan (Miss Burrow’s House) Property Owner

Within easy walking distance (10mins) of Hawes market square, this newly renovated house built in the early 1800’s offers a cozy traditional feel and retains many of the original Victorian features.

The house is well-known locally as the home of Hawes primary school teacher Miss Burrow, who was born in the house and resided there for most of her 105 years. This pet-friendly haven offers the perfect escape for couples, families, and friends alike, with excellent amenities nearby and a great choice for those looking to explore the local and wider Yorkshire Dales area.

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.
