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.

Great weekend with friends in this delightful cottage. very comfortable and well appointed with views to die for!

Angela & Lynne,

Great views, excellent location, very quiet at night. Standard was good throughout, we particularly appreciated tea, coffee milk biscuits, coal and wood left for us to “get going”. Also we think it very good that basic cleaning solutions and equipment was supplied as this meant we could uphold the great standard. Many thanks to the cleaning staff and owner for having thought it all through. Great cosy cottage, you won’t be disappointed.

Mr John Leivers,

Lovely clean and well equipped, a delightful view. very quiet over night, slept well, we couldn't ask for more.

Lynne & John,

Absolutely loved Three Halfway Houses. Lovely place with amazing views from many windows.

Mr Stephen Kirschner,

From Hawes, one can access many of the Dale's most popular visitor attractions. Buttertubs, Fleet Moss and Hardraw, to name just three! In Hawes itself, the town's market is held every Tuesday. Just enjoy Hawes and the surrounding area.
