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.
