Follow the babbling Mill Race to a quiet corner of Hawes to find this beautifully converted piece of Wensleydale history. The old Mill Fosse Cottage, with its blend of quirky touches, thick stone walls, flagged floors and exposed beams, is a snug, stylish retreat. Within a couple of minutes, you’re in the heart of Hawes. Visit the Wensleydale Creamery and Museum, browse the antique shops or have a lazy lunch by the river. The Dales are ready to be explored, or you can take the short walk to Hardraw Falls and the pub next door.Two people can spread out a bit here. Cook in the sociable kitchen (there are stools for chatterers), eat in the dining hall then relax in the upstairs sitting room in front of the wood-burner.
