Wayne, our host, gave us an excellent Australian welcome to Hawes. This was a beautiful Victorian house on the edge of the town centre and our room was large and comfortable with a great view from the bathroom. Our excellent breakfast was served at a communal table.

Wayne was very friendly and chatty, good to have another Aussie to talk to. Easy to walk to all Hawes has to offer. The room was spacious with a lovely view across the hills and the best shower I have had in 6wks in England. Loved breakfast as all the guests are seated together and the table was beautifully presented.... More

I stayed here while walking the Pennine Way. Host Wayne was exceptionally welcoming and helpful. The bedroom and en-suite bathroom were very spacious, and breakfast was excellent. A few minutes walk leads to the centre of Hawes with a choice of pubs and restaurants for an evening meal. Highly recommend!

There is a reason every reviewer on TA has given Wensleydale House 5 stars, and in the main that reason is Wayne. He ensures you feel at home immediately.
