We loved the cottage. Its location is lovely, next to a stream, off the road, on the edge of wilderness towards Tan Hill Inn. The cottage is warm, well appointed and very cosy with lots of lovely features.

Mr Hasell - Surrey,

Lovely tranquil area. delightful cottage and owners.

Mrs Frances Bland,


Area Information

Situated in Arkengarthdale, Whaw is a pretty little hamlet from which to enjoy a self-catering break. The area is great for walking, why not make the hike up to the Tan Hill Inn, the highest pub in the UK or explore the Arkle Beck Meadows (a Site of Special Scientific Interest)? Whaw is also ideally situated for exploring the nearby market towns of Leyburn and Barnard Castle.

Richmond is a leafy, vibrant market town boasting an impressive castle, a vast cobbled market place and an elegant Georgian district. It was formed by the Normans in 1071 and the town grew up around the castle which still dominates the skyline. It is said that the walls of the former imprisonment of King William are 11 feet thick and the exhibition centre within the grounds offers an impressive background into the history of this famous landmark.

Richmond is an exciting and vibrant place with plenty of quirky shops, art galleries and a good choice of pubs, restaurants and bars. Every Saturday there is a traditional outdoor market, joined by a popular farmers market once a month. The town is also the gateway to wonderful and unspoilt countryside, making it an ideal base for cycling, walking and other outdoor pursuits. The historic towns of York and Harrogate are also within easy reach.
