The House at Hawes isn’t our first 5 star, award winning, boutique B&B but we are certain it is our best!
We have previously owned B&Bs on the Yorkshire coast and in the North York Moors but having also lived in Wensleydale for a good few years prior to that, our love of the Yorkshire Dales has brought us to The House at Hawes, our first Bed & Breakfast in the Yorkshire Dales.
As much as it needed that extra special touch to make it sparkle again we knew as soon as we saw The House at Hawes that it was the Yorkshire Dales B&B for us. We adore the way we can express our love of all things good and great about the Yorkshire Dales and its amazing heritage in each of our individually designed guest rooms and slightly quirky embellishments along the way. Each has its own nod to Yorkshire, including the odd hero, past or present including James Herriot, Kit Calvert and The Yorkshire Shepherdess and we hope our interpretation does justice to them. Do try them all and choose your favourite. We are always picking up the odd addition to our collection, adding to your in-room experience and yes we do mean odd! So you never quite know what you will see on your next visit!
The House at Hawes B&B was built around 1890 as a gentleman’s’ residence from Stags Fell stone. Its grand proportions are evidence of that. Its original occupant is reputed to have been a mill owner from Burtersett. Over the decades it has been a Yorkshire Dales B&B in various guises and upon buying it our aim has been to create a stay and experience the 21st century traveller aspires to, whilst retaining the original splendour of the building. As with our previous projects it has been a labour of love and one which we now very much want to share with you.
Adorning the walls you will see lots of Tim’s photographs taken in and around the area as well as on our own travels across the UK. If anything catches your eye do let us know as we often have limited edition prints for sale.
We have also, where possible, commissioned bespoke items from Yorkshire artists and producers. This includes our Swaledale sheep, from Emma Fountain and our amazingly individual lights from Frankie at Stirring Silver Designs.
We hope you will enjoy staying at our adults only, Yorkshire Dales B&B in Hawes, The House at Hawes, and look forward to welcoming you soon.
