From a romantic cottage for two to contemporary properties for very large groups,
you’re sure to find a holiday cottage to suit you with Hawes Holiday Cottages.
We offer a range of self-catering holiday cottages available in the Upper North Yorkshire Dales, mainly near and around the market town of Hawes, which is the main town of the Upper Dales, but also into our neighbouring Dales, such as near by Swadledale.
The cottages are under the watchful eye of local owners or caretakers who live nearby - who place a high priority on cleanliness and presentation.
Hawes in Wensleydale is truly the heart of the Upper Dales. An ideal base for exploring the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park. We are ideally situated for touring or walking in The Dales, exploring Wensleydale, Swaledale, Wharfedale and further afield.
The Yorkshire Dales has many moods; it can be wild and windswept or quietly tranquil.
It includes some of the finest limestone scenery in the UK, from crags and pavements to an underground labyrinth of caves. Each valley or 'dale' has its own distinct character, set against expansive heather moorland tops.
Stone-built villages sit amongst traditional farming landscapes of field barns, dry stone walls and flower-rich hay meadows, and show how the area has been shaped over thousands of years by the people who have lived and worked here.
Wildlife to be seen are red squirrels, hares, curlews, lapwing, pheasant, deer, woodpecker, hedgehogs... For more information go to yorkshiredales/wildlife
Spectacular waterfalls and ancient broadleaved woodland contrast with the scattered remains of former mine workings and other rural industries which remind us of the area's rich industrial heritage.
Together, nature and people have created a special landscape of immense beauty and character.
