“We loved Blythe cottage.”
Ideal position within walking distance of all local amenities in Hawes. Perfect for walks in the local area. Can recommend the walk across the fields to Burtersett and along the lane and fields back to Gayle and Hawes. Beautiful views. The owners Jack and Nancy who live next door are very friendly and helpful. The log burner was excellent....so warm on a cold night. Plenty of hot water for the bath and we thought the reading lights in the living room were excellent, ideal if one of you ...

Plenty of hot water for the bath and we thought the reading lights in the living room were excellent, ideal if one of you wants to read while the other watches tv. We would definitely stay here again.
“A lovely cottage, very warm and cosy, just the job.”
“In the heart of the dales”
Very well equipped cosy cottage within walking distance of several pubs,spar shop & the usual hikers equipment shop. The owner who lives next door was very helpful & vast array of information was provided to help explore the area. The ideal base .
“We lived at Hawes for forty years and know most of the residents, it was nice to "catch up" with them.”
I visited places that I went as a young schoolboy and hadn't been to since, like the Newkin, Gruel street, and the old dairy and mineral waters. and especially The Holme, where I lived. My wife and her sister visited Litherskew where they lived for a few years. Hawes gala was on the day we got there, so we got off to a good start. We visited the Wensleydale Creameries where we both once worked, unfortunately the Gayle Mill was closed which we were disappointed about. We were happy with the cottage. and it's position in Hawes. within walking distance of most shops and restaurants. There is numerous coffee shops and the Hawes Chippy. so we didn't go hungry.
“Spacious, well-equipped, lots of nice touches”
The cottage is in a great location very much in the middle of the Yorkshire Dales: we only used our car twice during the week's stay - there are plenty of walks starting straight from the front door. Plus points: accommodation is spacious, well-equipped, lots of nice touches - we could have left stuff at home if we had known how much was in the cottage, we even found a roll of cling film in the kitchen drawer (good for self-catering packed lunches). Great wifi - it was a real pleasure to use in Blythe Cottage; whereas we have stayed in other accommodation that offered wifi but which proved to be so slow and unreliable as to be unusable. Minus points: located on a cobbled section of street which forms part of the one way system around Hawes, it is not the quietest place. Have to be flexible about car parking - can't park outside the cottage, there is a free car park nearby, but sometimes we had to find street parking and then move onto the car park later when space became available - as long as you know the score, this really is not a problem.
“Spacious, well-equipped accommodation (although kitchen is a little tight on space).”
Excellent wifi (better than we have often found in accommodation offering this service). Excellent location for getting out and about - we only used the car twice during the week, walking straight from the cottage for most of the time. Accommodation is not the quietest - being located on a cobbled section of street that forms part of the one way system around Hawes. Also during our stay there were a couple of nights with noise from people who had had too much to drink. Minor inconvenience of no private parking with the accommodation, nor being able to park on the street just outside. Exercising a little flexibility, we were usually able to get onto the small car park which is very close to the cottage and free of charge.
“A lovely cottage in Hawes which was a perfect base for my wife and I to explore the dales and see the sights.”
We had a great time and would definitely recommend the cottage, the position of it and of course Sykes Cottages for realising what a little gem this cottage is.Having stayed in quite a few Sykes Cottages we thought this was the best so far .Many thanks.
“Snug and very warm cottage with considerable attention to detail with nice furnishings.”
Very welcoming and helpful owners live next door. Milk, tea, coffee and posh biscuits were provided which were lovely to have on our arrival.
“Fabulous little cottage with wonderful owners who make us feel so welcome every time we stay.”
“An excellent cottage for a stay in Hawes.”
Beautifully and tastefully furnished and very comfortable with lovely, thoughtful touches like fresh milk, tea and biscuits waiting for us on arrival. The owners next door made us feel very welcome and had ensured the house was warm. Convenience for the shops couldn't have been better. Very highly recommended.
“This cottage was a little gem, it was quaint and very well equipped the owners were lovely and the location was fantastic.”
Will definitely be back again. Thank you.
“Lovely cottage in the heart of Hawes.”
Owners went the extra mile supplying extras in the bathroom and kitchen and leaving fresh milk on arrival.
“Excellent cottage, helpful owners, nice village, good shops and restaurants.”
Perfect for hiking the dales.
“Very central location.”
Lovely antique items in the cottage. Owners living next door were very helpful.
“Perfect cosy country christmas”
Lovely property, traditionally furnished but had everything we needed. Friendly, helpful and hospitable owner next door but not intrusive. Perfectly situated in Hawes at the edge of the town which minimised street noise but within 2-10 minutes walk of all amenities. The separate, and equally cosy, sitting room in the attic was commandeered by X-box playing husband (bottle of single malt in hand) leaving Mum and myself to wallow in the Christmas soaps and specials. Small kitchen but managed to cook a sumptuous Christmas dinner with a little planning that was ready altogether and hot. 10 out of 10 for me
This was a delightfully appointed cosy cottage pretty much in the centre of the farming community of Hawes .Set over three floors it held an old world charm with tasteful furniture to suite. A good variety of pubs and shops to visit, with wonderful water falls and walks close by.
This pretty stone-built, mid-terrace cottage is located on a cobbled street just a minute’s walk from the centre of the popular market town of Hawes.
Lovingly renovated and furnished, this Hawes cottage provides delightful holiday accommodation in Upper Wensleydale.
Set out over three floors this Hawes cottage is a real delight, exuding much character and charm throughout to provide an ideal romantic retreat.
The ground floor is comprised of a kitchen and a sitting room with a dining area and a cosy woodburning stove.
The first floor provides a spacious double bedroom and access to a bathroom.
The second floor boasts a single bedroom and a delightful snug, ideal for relaxing and enjoying a good book.
A lovely mix of traditional and contemporary styling throughout provides a lovely feel to the cottage making it an ideal holiday home to get away from it all and enjoy a break in this outstanding area.
The scenery in Upper Wensleydale is absolutely stunning, 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 a holiday highlight that must not be missed.
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 including a working rope maker, the Dales Countryside Museum and the much publicised Gayle Mill.
Just short drives 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 delightful Wensleydale cottage for that much needed break in the country.

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.
