  • "Wonderful stay in a fabulous location."

    Perfect for us.

  • "Lovely cottage - very central for amenities - all mod cons, very clean and comfortable, parking in the car park outside was a bit of a problem as it was very busy."

    In the description it refers to log burning stove - this is not a log burner but didn't detract from our stay.

  • "A very clean and comfortable cottage overall, we really enjoyed our week."

    We were aware of some unexpected but mostly short-lived noise from the properties upstairs and next door. Parking nearby is definitely not guaranteed, though having managed to park outside the Old Surgery we only moved the car once! Excellent location otherwise.

    Hawes is the perfect town. Plenty of pubs and shops, but with that small town charm. Our stay in The Old Surgery was fabulous! It had everything we needed. Clean and comfortable! We would definitely stay there again, given the opportunity.

  • "Hawes is a pretty little market town situated in the beautiful Dales."

    The Old Surgery was warm, comfortable, extremely well equipped and conveniently placed for walks, pubs and local shops (Elijah's was a gem of a shop, with all the local cheeses)! The week simply couldn't have been better!

  • "The old surgery is simply wonderful."

    My hubby and I and my mum had a fantastic stay. From the minute we stepped inside we felt relaxed. The place is super stylish and the beds oh so comfortable. We enjoyed evenings in Hawes without venturing out as kitchen was well equipped, the white hart inn did fabulous food, and the chippy was good. Brilliant days out and always happy to be back. Loved the sound of the waterfall and birdsong. We had a clipped shower utensil tray in the shower, really useful. Mum didn’t have one. When I checked there was one with rubber stoppers, but in the cupboard in the blue bathroom that needed replacing. Please could you replace with one similar to the main room so it will be easier for mum to shower when we come back. a fantastic place in a great village. We made full use of the shops, from the butchers to the deli, fish man on market day, funky pheasant shop.

  • "This was our second stay at the property."

    * The property is lovely, in a good location and the facilities work well. * The Welcome pack was not as good as last time - missing the wonderful crusty bed and a decent bottle of red wine. * The round “twist” door handles are difficult to operate for older guests or people with reduced grip. * Check in time of 5 pm needs revising - understand it was revised to accommodate extra “covid cleaning” but perhaps could be moved back to 3 pm now.. Would certainly stay again….overall it’s a really good property

    A short walk to pubs , cafes and shops and the starting point for several beautiful walks . The whole area is very dog friendly . Beautiful old building furnished very well and extremely comfortable with everything you could possibly need . Thankyou for the welcome hamper . Only slight downside is dogs not allowed to go in communal garden (well not allowed to toilet in garden but who knows when that will be?!) As responsible dog owners who always clear up after our dog it was a shame .

    The only downside was a heating system that had a mind of its own. Great when it worked, but we couldn't fathom it's logic and it kept going off, presumably on the thermostat. The electric fire did the same and seemed not to be adjustable.

    Biggest complaint: getting locked in the small ensuite - both of us at different times! Other occupants have mentioned the issue with over-tight handles that fail to turn at times: please attend. A lovely conversion. Good quality furnishings which is what we seek. Great parking and location. Absolutely would return.

  • "We absolutely loved it here although it was very different to what we normally book - we tend to go more rural."

    If you don't know Hawes(which we didn't) it is quite bustling but your are soon out into the very beautiful countryside The owners of the flat were very nice, friendly and helpful. It is beautifully clean, spacious and handy for the town with lots of bars and shops etc. My only "nigggle" (and perhaps this is my fault for not reading it correctly) was there is no direct access to back garden for our dog to wander in and out. It is accessed from front door via a side gate. Hence the 4 stars otherwise would be 5 stars from me!

    There was everything we needed in the accommodation the owner had even left us a welcome pack which included local cheese, milk and bread which was delicious. The accommodation was modern and very clean. The bed was so comfy and we slept so well especially after a good day spent walking in the beautiful country side. The weather wasn’t fantastic but that’s the chance you take this time of the year but even that didn’t dampen our spirits we got out and about and visited some amazing places. What was great was the proximity of the accommodation to the local pubs and shops which were in walking distance and which we enjoyed visiting in the evening and they were dog friendly which was fab. We had some lovely meals in the crown and enjoyed visiting the green dragon and hardraw force. We would stay at the accommodation again. Unfortunately we had to leave a day early but this did not spoil the holiday.

    The owner is the son of the retired doctor and has refurbished the property to a very high standard. He understands that a holiday cottage should be at least as comfortable and practical as ones own home and there is no “make do” about the furniture and fittings. The property was perfectly clean, our measure of quality, and we felt at home as soon as we walked through the door. Lots of things to do in the area, depending upon one’s interests.

The property

A warm welcome awaits you at Fulford House!

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 apartment.

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 apartment is a great base to stay, any time of year.

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.

Please note: The communal garden is not to be used for pets toilet.
