The small hamlet of Whaw is an ideal relaxing base for your next Yorkshire holiday. Whaw is situated in the Yorkshire dale of Arkengarthdale, one of the northernmost dales, and provides a stunning base from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales on foot or by bike. Located around 2 miles from the 21-Acre site of Arkle Beck Meadows (a Site of Special Scientific Interest), this quaint collective of chimney pots is a real treat for a peaceful break. The Charles Bathhurst Inn is the perfect place to go for a tipple or a meal at the end of a long day or stop in at The Tan Hill Inn, the highest pub in England, which is only 5 miles away. The village is close to Reeth with it’s lovely shops, tearooms and the Swaledale Museum, and the nearest market town is Barnard Castle, just under 30 minutes away by car. For a day out why not visit Bolton Castle and Aysgarth Falls in nearby Leyburn or pay a visit to The Bowes Museum, 9 miles away in Barnard Castle.
