Overdale sleeps up to six guests in three bedrooms and offers simple, yet comfortable and welcoming self-catering accommodation all year round. Dating back to the 17th Century, this attractive dog-friendly cottage still has lots of original character features enhanced by modern facilities such as a dishwasher, WiFi internet access and a multi-fuel stove for cosy nights.
Perfect for walkers and those seeking peace and tranquility, Overdale sits in the beautiful little village of Burtersett, amidst the glory of Upper Wensleydale. It can be found along a quiet track with one other cottage and the nearby farm being the only other nearby neighbours, yet it is only one mile from the Yorkshire market town of Hawes.
Hawes is a thriving market town which still today has a popular weekly market on a Tuesday, as well as a good choice of shops, pubs and restaurants for a meal out. It is home to an excellent National Park Information Centre; the Wensleydale Creamery with a museum, gift shop and restaurant for refreshments; Outhwaite Ropemakers (a fascinating skill to watch); and the Dales Countryside Museum, offering a taste of the local way of life and heritage that has made this area so special.
A real place to immerse yourself in the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales, stunning uninterrupted views can be enjoyed from the cottage and garden. The surrounding area is a haven for birdlife, and offers an abundance of tracks and trails for walkers and cyclists to explore straight from the cottage front door. Whether you want an action packed holiday full of adventure or simply want to relax with family or friends, Overdale is a good choice.

Outside: There is an outbuilding accessible from the property where you can store outdoor gear, along with a garage with table tennis (folding table) - both offering lockable bike storage. A small lawned area provides a nice place to relax when the sun shines, soaking up the spectacular views over Wensleydale (interrupted by nothing but birdsong!). At the back of the property is a walled enclosed garden with patio (including furniture) and also parking for two cars.
Additional information: Please bring your own bed linen and towels. Central heating keeps the cottage warm all year round. A travel-cot and highchair are available. Dogs are most welcome (the owners don't charge any extra to bring your four legged family members but just ask that you clear away any mess or hairs before departure). Short breaks (three night minimum) often available out of peak season.
