Surround yourselves with the spectacular natural beauty of the Yorkshire Dales when you stay at this charming, stone cottage in the tranquil hamlet of Gayle, just 0.5 miles from Hawes. Sleeping seven guests, and welcoming four-legged companions too, the four-bedroom retreat is simply idyllic for extended families or groups of friends with a passion for the great outdoors.

With an abundance of picturesque tracks and trails straight from the doorstep, you can spend your days wandering through glorious countryside via some of the most stunning natural features in the country. Head into the charming little market town of Hawes to amble through its cobbled streets and pause in country shops, inns and cafes or venture 4 miles to the lake at Semerwater to go walking, fishing, sailing or canoeing.

Step over the threshold of this delightful cottage, which is brimming with character, to feel instantly at home in the welcoming lounge with its beamed ceiling and stone fireplace. Light the wood burner in here then settle down to a movie on the Smart TV. There is also a snug here for those wishing to watch something else or to steal a few quiet moments to themselves with a book.

At the rear of the property is a bright kitchen/diner, the perfect space to socialise or rustle up a home-cooked meal that all of the family can enjoy. Completing the ground floor is a WC that leads through to a handy utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer.

As you climb the stairs to retire for the evening, you will find four tastefully decorated bedrooms: a super-king-size, with an en-suite shower room, a double, a twin, with zip-and-link beds that can also be arranged as a super-king-size upon request, and a single. There is also a stylish family bathroom here.

To the rear of the property, is an enclosed patio area with furniture where you can relax under the stars in the evening, breathe in the fresh country air and enjoy a glass of wine with your family and friends. The cottage has secure storage for bicycles. Off-road parking is available in a free car park 70 metres away.

Stroll from Gayle alongside the pretty beck into the enchanting little market town of Hawes. With a name meaning “pass between mountains,” it stands between the stunning Buttertubs and Fleet Moss and is most famous for being the home of Wensleydale cheese. In fact, while you are here, you can visit Wensleydale Creamery, made famous by the animated Wallace and Grommit films. It also boasts some lovely shops, pubs and tearooms.

Walkers will also adore the town as the Pennine Way passes through it, making it the perfect starting point for exploring the countryside. The stunning landscape of Wensleydale includes 25 miles of lush valleys, criss-crossed with the area’s iconic dry-stone walls and you can venture out on foot or by bicycle from here on some exciting adventures.

Aysgarth, 9 miles away, is also worth visiting while you are in the gorgeous Yorkshire Dales National Park. This charming village is home to the picturesque Aysgarth Falls, which were featured in the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves! It also boasts many great options to eat, including popular pubs and cute cafes. If you visit in spring, you can’t leave without a visit to Freeholders’ Wood where bluebells, anemones and primroses will be in full bloom.

History lovers will be fascinated by visits to Bolton Castle, Middleham Castle and Jervaulx Abbey, which are 12, 18 and 21.5 miles from the cottage, respectively and well worth a day trip. Bolton Castle dates back to the 14th century and once held Mary, Queen of Scots prisoner, while Middleham Castle was the childhood home of Richard III. Jervaulx Abbey is the country’s largest privately-owned Cistercian Abbey and offers peace and tranquillity to its visitors.
