Just over a mile from the market town of Hawes, in Upper Wensleydale, Shepherd’s Cottage is truly an away from it all rural retreat, situated in a very special, peaceful and romantic setting.

The cottage is a delightful, Grade II listed, 17th century Dales stone cottage facing south and standing on its own in a small field surrounded by beautiful open countryside. It stands back from the road, approached by a gravel drive and is peacefully situated between Hardraw (famous for its waterfall) and the village of Askrigg.

Shepherd’s Cottage was one of the earliest farmhouses in the Yorkshire Dales, built in 1633, and still retains all its former charm and character. There are original mullioned windows, beamed ceilings, feature stonework and pitch pine floors throughout. Downstairs, there is an entrance porch with quarry tiled floor, for coats and boots, a downstairs cloakroom with w.c., a large and inviting sitting room with a feature stone fireplace and a cosy farmhouse kitchen with Rayburn. There is a payphone. 

Upstairs there are two front bedrooms with double bed – one with an en-suite shower room, and one bedroom at the back with two single beds. There is also a well-fitted bathroom with separate shower. Outside, there is a flagged patio/barbecue area and the grass paddock is a wonderful play area for children. There is plenty of space for parking.
