Three Halfway Houses is a delightful 'railway cottage', Originally there was one house called Halfway House and the powers that be decided to build the railway very close to the house, so as compensation they built the three cottages (Halfway Houses) and gave them to the owner of Halfway House!

This property is a cosy, two bed-roomed cottage just half a mile from Hawes centre, It boasts an excellently equipped kitchen/dining and beautiful rooms throughout. There are stunning views from all of the windows overlooking the Wensleydale Countryside, in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Nearby attractions include the world-famous Wensleydale Creamery and the Dales countryside museum.

The most comfortable cottage we have stayed at for the past ten years or more. Hawes is an excellent centre for exploring and enjoying the stunning scenery of the western dales . We have visited four times over the years and look forward to returning in the near future. We have used Yorkshire Holiday Cottages many times over the past years and hope to do so again.

Mr Howard W,

This was our fourth stay in Hawes and this is without doubt the best accommodation that we have rented. The comfort and quality provided here more than made up for the variable weather.

Lovely cottage, great location well equipped for a family relaxing stay! Great views. Nice little touches- tea, coffee, fresh milk and the torch.
