    We spent Christmas 2016 at Sycamore Cottage, Near Hawes. The cottage is delightful with everything you could possibly need. The kitchen is extremely well equipped so is the bathroom with lots of hot water and central heating which is on all the time for your comfort. Alison and Andrew left us a tea tray on arrival which was gratefully received. There is a lot of places to visit leaflets and books on the area. There are great views from the windows and a nice secure garden to the side. The cottage is approx 6 miles from Hawes and 1 mile to the local pub which is very handy. We had a great time exploring the area including a trip to the lakes. Fully recommend the cottage it is a gem!

The property

Hawes 6 miles. This cosy stone-built end-terrace cottage is situated in the small farming community of Lunds and is superbly placed for enjoying exhilarating walking on the high fells of Upper Wensleydale.

The surrounding countryside is dotted with traditional whitewashed farmsteads and is famous for being along the route of the Settle to Carlisle Railway as it climbs steadily towards Aisgill summit.

Visitors may be lucky enough to see steam trains, as the line is only a field away from the cottage!

The accommodation is upside down to take advantage of the extensive views, and many footpaths lead from the door.

The owners live in the adjacent farmhouse.

There is a pub serving food within a mile, making this an ideal retreat for a stay in spectacular countryside.

About the location

HAWES

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.
