- Gayle, Hawes
A really beautiful cottage - very tastefully furnished, decorated and equipped to a very high standard.
The cottage in the village of Gayle is 1/2 mile from the Market Town of Hawes in Upper Wensleydale.
There is stunning scenery on the doorstep, some of the finest on offer in the Yorkshire Dales.
Gayle Beck runs through the middle of the village cascading over a series of waterfalls as it travels
on its way to Hawes; this attracts both children (not all young) and the local ducks. On hand are lovely
walks along quiet river banks and across meadows or for the more adventurous by following the Pennine Way
(which passes through Gayle) onto the surrounding high fells. It is centrally located for visiting all the
Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District and the North Yorkshire Moors all within day trip driving range and wonderful
scenery all the way. Hawes is a traditional stone built market town of character with pubs, restaurants, tea rooms
and a very good selection of shops. There are interesting visitor attractions, including a working rope maker;
The Dales Countryside Museum and the renowned Gayle Mill as featured in the BBC programme " Restoration”. There
is trout fishing in the locality.
The cottage recently renovated to a very high standard, has kept its character, with a beamed ceiling in the bedsit room, pine doors and an attractive alcove in the lounge housing a log burning stove. There are tiled floors with scatter rugs or fitted carpets throughout the cottage. This is a perfect cottage for a very special country holiday in the Dales.
