Flags Cottage is a traditional stone-built Dales property, full of character and charm and located in the village of Gayle, on the outskirts of the popular market town of Hawes in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This cosy cottage is within walking distance of the Wensleydale Creamery and the quirky shops, tearooms and pubs that Hawes has to offer. The lounge has a traditional Yorkshire Range with an open fire, beamed ceilings, and views over the Dale. This delightful cottage dates back to 1669 and has the original stone lintel over the front door. With plenty pf comfortable seating this is an ideal room to cosy up in after a busy day exploring all that the Yorkshire Dales has to offer. The property is close to the lovely stepped waterfalls of the Duerley Beck and joined by the ancient packhorse bridge across them. Surrounding Gayle are meadows and upland pastures in which cows and sheep quietly graze, these are criss-crossed by bubbling streams and a host of footpaths (including the Pennine Way) suitable for both the afternoon stroller and the more serious of walkers. Walkers may enjoy the countryside from the moment they leave the cottage.

Gayle is a picturesque hamlet situated a mile south of Hawes, in Wensleydale. Here you will find the Wensleydale Creamery where you can watch the renowned cheese being hand crafted and packaged ready for sale. The picturesque, Duerley Beck is a few steps from the property and is spanned by an old and narrow bridge and can also be crossed by a ford at a point where ducks and geese are often in evidence. There are two waterfalls, Gayle Force and Aisgill, nearby. The two roads leading out of Hawes are mountain pass roads, the famous Buttertubs Pass to Swaledale and Fleet Moss to Wharfedale. Hawes has an excellent range of shops, takeaways, tearooms and restaurants. There is also a weekly market and the Mart for livestock on Tuesdays, the Countryside Museum and Hawes rope makers are within easy reach.
