Our website contains descriptions of the interior and exterior of each cottage and you can also see a “virtual tour” which shows views from our stunning location and the interiors of the cottages. The market town of Hawes provides visitors with an excellent choice of places to eat, shops and visitor attractions. We take bookings by telephone, email or via our Letting Agents, Country Hideaways.

Our drive is approximately 200 yards long. The cottage parking is a level gravelled area and is marked with a sign. There is a small slope leading from the parking area up to the front of the cottages. We have installed a wrought iron handrail to assist visitors up this incline. We like to personally welcome visitors and show them the cottages anytime between 3.30pm – 6pm on their arrival date. We are always happy to answer any queries or supply information on our area.
