Three Halfway Houses is a delightful 'railway cottage', Originally there was one house called Halfway House and the powers that be decided to build the railway very close to the house, so as compensation they built the three cottages (Halfway Houses) and gave them to the owner of Halfway House! In the village of Garsdale (5 miles away) there are some identical railway cottages. Although the railway still operates from Garsdale it closed here many years ago.

This property is a cosy, two bed-roomed cottage just half a mile from Hawes centre, It boasts an excellently equipped kitchen/dining and beautiful rooms throughout. There are stunning views from all of the windows overlooking the Wensleydale Countryside, in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. There are many restaurants, public houses and unique shops in Hawes, a famous and bustling market town. Nearby attractions include the world-famous Wensleydale Creamery and the Dales countryside museum.

Our second stay at Three Halfway Houses. Lovely home form home. This time we made our way to Appletreewick and had a drink in the Craven Arms. Such an old fantastic pub huge back room- well worth a visit and The Bowes Museum near Barnard Castle where we saw the famous gold swan at 20k. Lovely clean and well kept museum . Be back soon

Previous Customer,

The most comfortable cottage we have stayed at for the past ten years or more. Hawes is an excellent centre for exploring and enjoying the stunning scenery of the western dales . We have visited four times over the years and look forward to returning in the near future. We have used Yorkshire Holiday Cottages many times over the past years and hope to do so again.

Mr H W,

This was our fourth stay in Hawes and this is without doubt the best accommodation that we have rented. The comfort and quality provided here more than made up for the variable weather.

What an amazing week we have had! Lovely cottage - so well equipped and cosy. Great location for visiting the Dales and even the Lakes. Highly recommend a drive from Malham to Arncliffe, such a great road. Do visit the Creamery - most interesting and best visitor shop. If you want to see where the sheep go, try and catch a market day at Hawes Farmers Auction Mart - a real life treat.

Beautifully fitted cottage, so well equipped and comfortable. Constable Burton daffs still on show. So, after a few years missing them, great opportunity to enjoy! Lunch at the George at Hubberholme not to be missed!
