Lovely cottage, beautiful views. Weather was fantastic, what's not to like?! Had a lovely few days to recharge our batteries. of to buy cheese...

Previous Customer,

Been to Halfway House before. Loved it the first time and this return time, even planning a return any time soon. Great weather although forecast wasn't great. Good food in Hawes. A great venue for exploring the Dales.

Previous Customer,

Our first visit to Yorkshire. Beautiful countryside, lovely town and a superb cottage. Couldn't have asked for more. Lots of walking opportunities straight from the door. Hope to be back.

Previous Customer,

Our third stay in the lovely cottage. Had a lovely drive to Grassington where the new All Creatures Great and Small was filmed, Lovely meal at The Kings Arms, Askrigg. Also white Hart in Hawes. Saw red squirrels in Cotterdale, also saw one just outside here! Also meal and drinks in Moorcock - lovely. Weather up and down but ok.

Previous Customer,

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your cottage. We had a wonderful time. You should be very proud of the Town you have here. The surroundings are beautiful and the people are very friendly. It is also incredible how self sufficient Hawes is with it being remote. t was lovely to visit the surrounding community and go for long walks.

The White Family,

Overall, very good. A super property in a great location. A credit to the owners. Super property in a great location in the centre of Hawes. Highly recommended. Good service from the staff in the Hawes office when I spoke to them

Mr Peter T,


Area Information


The charming market town of Hawes has been around as far back as 1307 and is still delighting visitors to this day. Standing between Buttertubs and Fleet Moss, the name Hawes literally means 'a pass between mountains' and the town's beautiful setting in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales means you're never far from a breathtaking view and ideally located to access many of the Dale's most popular visitor attractions. The town's market is held every Tuesday selling a great selection of locally produced food and drink, however if you can't wait until then to sample some of the area's lovely food- pay a visit to the the Wensleydale Creamery, located just on the outskirts of the town to see how the famous cheese is made (and try a bit for yourself!). For lovers of the outdoors, there are many fantastic walks in the area such as the Hawes Mosaic Trail and circular walks to nearby Aysgarth Falls, a stunning waterfall over limestone steps.
