Very enjoyable holiday in this lovely cottage. Aysgarth falls were impressive after all the rain. We saw several red squirrels in the village.

Previous Customer,

Peaceful, perfect stay and a great staycation during these strange times. We had a well-needed relaxing time and Butterside was well equipped for a cosy break. Would recommend Hardraw and Aysgarth Falls. Thank you for a brill time!

Previous Customer,

What a lovely cottage! Everything you could need, spotless. Loved the fire, gorgeous views, enjoyed Hardraw Force (even in the rain) and lunch at The Green Dragon Inn. Thanks for a lovely stay.

Dawn and S,

Our second visit to this delightful cottage. Couldn't fault it, loved every minute. Can't wait to return. Thanks.

Past Customer,

What a charming little cottage. Very well equipped and spotless on arrival. The location is great, would recommend a walk to Aysgarth Falls. Would love to come back again. Thanks

Previous Customer,

Thank you- a lovely holiday. Great little house, comfy beds, idyllic location!

Jon & J,

Lovely little cottage to stay in. Perfect location for getting out and doing loads of walks in the Dales. Definitely recommend a visit to Stump Cross Cavern, interesting cave and great food. Thanks

Hannah & T,

Lovely cottage in a superb location. Walk up Ingleborough was definitely worth it - though hard in the snow! Very well equipped and beautifully done. Thank you.

Previous Customer,

We had a fabulous break away in this cute and cosey cottage and went for some fantastic scenic walks in the nearby areas. Hawes itself is a lovely little village and there was nothing better than returning to a nice log fire after a day walking. Butterside cottage offered everything we needed and more and we can’t wait to return! Highly recommend.

Bobby B,


Area Information

Burtersett is the perfect place to escape from the modern world: surrounded by countryside, this peaceful spot is miles away from its surrounding towns and villages, making it the ideal base to disconnect and truly relax on a Yorkshire Dales break. If you do need to head back into the hustle and bustle, the charming market town of Hawes is 1 mile away where you'll find the Dales Countryside Museum, the Wensleydale Creamery along with a variety of independent shops and restaurants to potter around.
