  • "Lovely cottage in superb location"

    Reviewed by RichardMay 2022

  • "The Hayloft is in a fabulous location."

    It is such a cosy quiet cottage, furnished beautifully and a great base from which to explore the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. Highly recommended.

    Thanks for your feed back, really appreciated Best Rob King Property Owner

  • "Great stay in perfect location to explore."

    Cottage was lovely, very comfortable and felt like a home from home. Quiet at night and everything you need for a trip. The only things I would suggest to improve is: Bigger TV, more storage in bedroom (double width chest of drawers). Also a full length clothes dryer. These are really minor, fussy things because overall it was a lovely stay and it was with real sadness to leave. Value for money in comparison to what we paid elsewhere later on our trip in the height of Easter. Great time staying here.

  • "Stayed for one week from 27."

    03.2022. Loved everything about it. Hawes was lovely and we enjoyed exploring the area. The Hayloft provided everything we needed. Super-comfy bed, fab shower, warm and cosy (even when it snowed), loved being above the Beck. Lovely welcome pack. Managed to park outside every day. Owners friendly but discreet. Would definitely stay again.

    The property was very well prepared, warm and inviting. We really appreciated the welcome pack of food. Superb walk in power shower and very comfortable bed. The kitchen was well equipped with everything to hand. We didn't use the woodburner but thoroughly appreciated that wood was provided and that it could have been used. We also appreciated the leaflets and maps about the local area and the guidance on walks. A shame there was no TV but that was out of the owners control.

  • "Really loved our stay here in August / September."

    Very quiet, but ideal with the burn running past the en-suite bathroom window. Lovely log fire for cold nights. The side garden overlooking the burn is a great spot for coffee. Parking was easy out front, and having an electric car was easy with chargers 200m away at the visitor Center. Central location only minutes walk from great pubs and restaurants. Local walking is good to Hardraw falls and the meandering river. Finally our hosts we really friendly and always available with local intel on places to visit and eat. We would visit again. Two thumbs up.

  • "A beautiful cosy cottage, which was beautifully decorated."

    we had a relaxing holiday at this accommodation, steps into the property are pretty steep, parking can also sometimes be a problem, ideally it would be good if you were able to park your car inside the metal gates. Excellent amenities with dishwasher, washing machine & a tumble drier. Dishwasher tablets & softener for the washing machine were supposed to be provided but unfortunately not for us, also not enough toilet rolls provided, Have to say this was not the fault of the owner but whoever cleans the property, also it would of been a bonus if the salt & pepper & the paper towel holder had been replenished. Would love to stay at this property again but would think now that this dream cottage has been found it will be fully booked. We were lucky to meet the lovely owners the day before we left & he came to our rescue with the dishwasher tablets.

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.
