Cubble Head is a pretty farmhouse on the edge of Burtersett, a traditional Dales village just 1.5 miles from the bustling market town of Hawes where all services are available. It is peacefully situated on a back road which continues to Semerwater Lake where you can canoe or swim. The Pennine Way is just a mile from the house, and there are tremendous walks in every direction. It is ideal for a relaxing family holiday. Wensleydale is James Herriot country and home to Wensleydale cheese - made famous by Wallace and Gromit. There are many local scenic attractions such as Bolton Castle, Aysgarth Falls and Hardraw Force. The nearby road across to Swaledale is regarded by many as the most scenic drive in England.

Staying anywhere in November is a risk but we were rewarded with a well equipped cottage that was warm and welcoming. The owners went out of their way to make us welcome and to facilitate our needs (we had a change over of guests). There were small attention to details that were lovely (fresh flowers) and nice thick towels. The...

A fabulous house to stay in. Very comfortable beds, clean spacious rooms, and a fabulous welcome tray on arrival. An open fire ensured cosy evenings too. The views from the house are outstanding, with lots of wildlife to be seen too. A great base for lots of walks and places to visit... The walk into Hawes is a delight too....

About the neighborhood
Burtersett is a peaceful, timeless village, set on a slight hillside above the Wensleydale valley road. The name 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 ma... more

How to get there
Airport: Leeds Bradford International: 49.7 mi
Railway: Garsdale: 10.6 mi
Ferry: Hull: 110.6 mi
Cubble Head is easily accessible from the A1 and the M1.
From the A1, turn West at Bedale on to the A684 towards Leyburn and Hawes. Cubble Head is 26 miles - about 40 minutes drive from the A1 exit. This is a delightful drive along the scenic Wensleydale valley. There are a succession of pretty villages - many with real character and ancient chuches, village greens, attractive cottages etc. There are also lovely views to the opposite side of the valley and Castle Bolton. Many villages have a tea room or pub so there is no shortage of refreshment stops! Particularly good places for a break might be: Leyburn - 3 village squares, good shopping, plenty of tea rooms
West Witton - charming village with the famous Wensleydale Heifer gastro pub, Aysgarth- the well known triple waterfall is just...
