1 Middlegate

1 Middlegate provides the perfect holiday retreat in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is ideal for anyone who enjoys walking and is located in the delightful, peaceful hamlet of Burtersett on the south side of Wensleydale. It offers magnificent views up and down the dale and is situated just a gentle one mile stroll from the bustling market town of Hawes.

Burtersett is ideally situated for exploring all aspects of the Yorkshire Dales. Whether you enjoy walking, cycling, climbing or driving you will enjoy this lovely location. The geographical location and natural history combine wonderfully to provide an excellent array of activities.

Situated in the Northern Dales, Hawes is one of England's highest market towns. It is a picturesque town, offering a wide range of shops, tea rooms, craft galleries, pubs and restaurants. It also has a weekly market every Tuesday where you can purchase local produce and plays host to a range of events, including the Hawes Gala in June. The town is famous for being the home of Wensleydale cheese at the Hawes creamery, and another popular tourist attraction is the Dales Countryside Museum, located at the old Hawes railway station.

For those who love walking, Hawes is a great holiday destination, as it lies within the Yorkshire Dales National Park with the 250 mile Pennine Way passing through it. For those who prefer a more gentle walk, there are plenty around locally to enjoy.

There are many nearby attractions and places of interest including Aysgarth Falls, a triple flight of waterfalls from the River Ure which stretches down over almost one mile to mid Wensleydale. These spectacular falls were visited by the likes of Turner, Ruskin and Wordsworth, and have also featured on the television program 'Seven Natural Wonders' as a wonder of the North. For those who want to explore the area and travel a little further afield, the Lake District is less than one hour away by car.

A very well located little cottage making for a highly enjoyable stay.

Thank you for a lovely, peaceful and relaxing 4 days in your cosy cottage. We reluctantly return to the 'real world.'

Had a great week with the dog walking and exploring in the Dales. We loved the cottage, really well furnished and very cosy. We'd love to come back in the winter sometime.

Enjoyed our two weeks. Nice, quiet, cosy cottage. Lots of lovely walks nearby.

Great cottage, nice comfy beds. Nice and peaceful with plenty to do within either a short drive or walk. Will be back.

Thank you. We have had a brilliant two weeks staying in your cottage. As it's so central we have explored far and wide.

Thank you for a lovely cottage. It was very comfortable. Everything provided like home from home. We would definitely recommend the cottage to our friends as it's very central and convenient.

We had high expectations of the cottage from literature and photos (on Net) but on walking through the door these were surpassed. Everything about the cottage was great. So well equipped. Warm and cosy in a wonderful position. We would highly recommend this cottage to all we know.
