Description

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! In the village of Garsdale (5 miles away) there are some identical railway cottages. Although the railway still operates from Garsdale it closed here many years ago.

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. There are many restaurants, public houses and unique shops in Hawes, a famous and bustling market town. Nearby attractions include the world-famous Wensleydale Creamery and the Dales countryside museum. Walkers may enjoy the countryside from the moment they leave the cottage, and sights such as Hardraw Force Waterfall are not far away. The comfort of this two bed-roomed property with, its wood-burning stove, as well as modern electric-heating, simply awaits you.

Reviews

Everything was spot on with this cottage. Views to die for. Many thanks for the tea, coffee, sugar & milk. Well worth a visit to Farfield Mill in Sedbergh- very interesting.

Ann & Ray,

Wow! What an awesome cottage, and those views! So clean and everything to hand. Perfectly equipped. Impressed with the bed linen and information about the cottage & area. Loved the walled garden & seating. We will be back. Also, thank you for the Easter egg, lovely touch and for the welcome pack. We have never stayed anywhere before that has been how we would want a rental cottage. Fab!

Mrs Elaine Holden,

Lovely cottage in a gorgeous location. Very well equipped and comfortable. Hawes and surrounding area well worth a visit and this cottage is a great base to do so from. The view from the cottage is stunning.

Nice relaxing break in a very well equipped cottage. Beautiful views and lovely walks all around. Thanks for the tea, coffee, biscuits and milk on arrival, much appreciated.

Joanne,

Beautiful cottage. White Hart pub very good food and local beer! Good cappuccino at the Fire Box cafe old railway station Hawes. Humble Pie coffee shop, good coffee and the finest fresh cakes at Askrigg. Sundays only, bus No 830 from Hawes over Buttertubs to Swaledale at 10.52 am. Little White Bus very useful to Leyburn, or Garsdale for railway and some very good walks.

Darren & Karen,

Lovely cottage, views and walks. Sheep dog demonstration on Thurs evenings throughout the summer, a surprising gem!

Catherine Lynch,

Had a fantastic week in your cosy cottage. The Dales are so beautiful and we managed 5 memorable walks in glorious weather - very unexpected! Look out for the Red Squirrel in the trees on the other side of the road.

Mike & Mary,

What an amazing week we have had! Lovely cottage - so well equipped and cosy. Great location for visiting the Dales and even the Lakes. Highly recommend a drive from Malham to Arncliffe, such a great road. Do visit the Creamery - most interesting and best visitor shop. If you want to see where the sheep go, try and catch a market day at Hawes Farmers Auction Mart - a real life treat.

Kathy, Vincent & Monica,

Beautifully fitted cottage, so well equipped and comfortable. Constable Burton daffs still on show. So, after a few years missing them, great opportunity to enjoy! Lunch at the George at Hubberholme not to be missed!

Val & Gerry Carr,

Wow! What a beautiful cottage, with amazing views in a stunning location. Highly recommend Ingleton Waterfalls Trail, White Scar Caves and a drive over Buttertubs Pass. So much to see, so little time. We will definitely return.

Natasha, Cris, Izzy and Isla,

What a find - a cosy comfortable, uncluttered cottage with outstanding views. I could not have wished for more!

Sarah Lacey,

A fantastic cottage, warm, comfortable and wonderful views! One of the best cottages we have stayed in 30 years of holidays. Will definitely return.

Cosy, friendly cottage with every amenity possible. Beautiful views. Will not hesitate to recommend or to return - loved it!!
