Further details outdoors

Cubble Head has a large patio area at the front (south) and side of the house with garden furniture - a lovely large hardwood table and 6 chairs. The patio is a suntrap and enjoys magnificent views of the hills and the Wensleydale valley - perfect for 'al fresco' dining. There is also a grassy picnic area with a large picnic bench to the east side of the house and the views from here are breathtaking, looking across, up and down Wensleydale. You can see for miles! To the front of the house, there is a large enclosed paddock which would provide a safe play area for children. When the gates are closed, the whole garden is enclosed and secure.

The setting is incredibly peaceful and we have wonderful dark skies at night with millions of stars. Little Owls nest in the nearby barn and the garden is a haven for birds.

There is ample parking for several cars within the grounds and there is a large parking area just on the left as you turn off the lane. An unsurfaced track leads about 25 metres from this main parking area to the house and makes for easier unloading / packing up as you can park the car quite close to the house.

The Yorkshire region

The Yorkshire Dales National Park is a very special place; a place of natural beauty and diversity, a place of grandeur, a place of tranquility and solitude. The landscape is characterised by upland fells and dales with a patchwork of dry stone walls and field barns. Throughout the area there are villages full of character, ancient churches and castles and natural features such as waterfalls and limestone caves. You can drive for miles on unspoilt roads enjoying magnificent views.

The area is perfect for a relaxing holiday, away from the bustle and stresses of life. It is also somewhere to enjoy outdoor pursuits such as walking, caving, cycling and even paragliding.

Hawes

Burtersett is a peaceful, timeless village, set on a slight hillside above the Wensleydale valley road. The name 'sett' means high pasture and the fields around the village are still full of grazing sheep. The road through the village winds past pretty cottages and continues to Lake Semerwater, famed by geologists for its Ice Age relics and now enjoyed by canoeists and swimmers. Cubble Head is situated on the outskirts of Burtersett.

From Burtersett, there is a lovely walk on a paved pathway through meadows to Hawes, about 1.5 miles away. The path was paved so that the Minister could walk from Hawes to the chapel in Burtersett without getting his robes muddy!

Hawes is the highest market town in England and a place of real character. It has cobbled streets and a weekly street market. There are many small shops and several excellent pubs and cafes. The local sheep market is well worth a visit and there are other unique attractions such as the Dales tourist museum, a ropemaker, a working watermill and of course the world famous Wensleydale Creamery where real Wensleydale cheese is made 6 days a week. You can watch the cheese being made and then sample the results in the Creamery shop and cafe.

The Pennine Way runs through Hawes and there are walks in every direction - along the river, up the hills, over to Swaledale. The famous 3 Peaks of Yorkshire (Pen-y-ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough) are just a short drive away.

“Best cottage we have ever stayed in!”

Reviewed 9 Mar 2013

The cottage was perfect, the views amazing. Owners very friendly. We loved it so much we have rebooked for next year, first time we have gone back to the same place twice.

Thank you so much for your very kind review! We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward very much to meeting you again next time. Liz and Richard

“A beautiful haven in the Dales!”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2012

Came here with a group of old uni friends. What a gorgeous place to stay. Very remote but such beautiful landscape. House is very well equipped including wifi! . Lovely stylish interiors, sensitively complimenting the history of the building. We had a great time catching up and enjoyed the local area! Would be ideal for groups of all ages/families.
