The property

Fulford House was formally the doctors residence with the surgery forming the main part of this gracious Georgian house built in 1832.

Having previously been the Queens Hotel, the surgery was located here from 1928 up to 1993 when the new surgery was built on the opposite side of the road.This high-quality Georgian building is located in heart of the old market town of Hawes in Wensleydale.

Boasting modern fixtures and fittings, The Old Surgery provides an excellent accommodation for friends, families or couples alike.

Discover the stunning open-plan living area, finished with an engineered wood floor and underfloor heating, as well as a beautiful high quality electric effect stove and Smart TV, so you indulge in your favourite shows while away.

Adjoining the homely setup is the contemporary kitchen, equipped with a range of modern appliances and glossy white units which add a further touch of class to the interior.

Retire to one of the luxuriously fitted bedrooms, consisting of a super king-size double (that can be split into a twin on request) and king-size double, both of which benefit from elegant en-suite shower rooms and flat screen TVs.

Throughout, the accommodation has a bright and cheery feel, created by the attention to detail the current owners have put into this first-class holiday cottage.

Right outside the property is Galye Beck waterfall which runs through Hawes and is spanned by an old and narrow bridge.

There are also two more waterfalls in Hawes, the Aysgill Force and Gayle which can be visited.

Take a short walk into Hawes and enjoy the wide range of amenities on offer, including shops, pubs and tearooms, and the fine Wensleydale Creamery, made famous by the Wallace and Gromit films.

The surrounding Upper Wensleydale scenery is absolutely stunning, some of the finest on offer in the Yorkshire Dales and is renowned as one of the finest walking areas in the country.

The natural surroundings in the area also perfect for activities such as, cycling, bird-watching, and fly-fishing.

For the more energetic, face the famous Three Peaks challenge, as it is just a short drive away, while Gayle Mill, a fully-restored 19th-century sawmill, which featured on Channel 4’s How Britain Worked, is also well worth a visit.

Boasting contemporary styling throughout with subtle hints of the previous building formation, this delightful cottage is a great base to stay, any time of year.

Please note: this property can be booked alongside The Hayloft (property reference: 962286) to sleep a total of 6.

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.
