About the property

Cottage in Sedbusk,Nr Hawes. Full Central heating and Open Fire, Double Glazing.Cosy cottage in ideal walking location.

Lilac cottage was a farm workers cottage which was converted to one of the first holiday cottages in Wensleydale by my mother many years ago. Since then I have gradually updated it so that it still retains many original features, but is now a warm and comfortable cottage. The location, on the edge of the village,means it is private and peaceful with stunning views over Wensleydale. There are many walks all around. Hawes, with its shops and pubs is just over 1 mile away over the fields, the nearest pub about half a mile away. There are longer walks from the doorstep, to Castle Bolton, or up Stagsfell behind the cottage.

Quiet location good base for exploring

  • 3 of 5

The property was clean and comfortable with all self catering needs catered for. The location was good for exploring the dales with amazing walks on doorstep.The property was nestled in small hamlet but no through traffic which was a bonus but parking in garage would be difficult if you drive anything larger than medium sized car.Generally happy with visit but feel the cottage would benefit from some upgrading but a fair price.

Fabulous Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has a fantastic location, it is a beautiful area. We had a week walking with our dog. Loved Hawes, loved the Dales, visited the Wensleydale Creamery. Went to the Windermere and Theakston Brewery. There is so much to do, we will definitely be back. The Cottage is great, nice big bedrooms, fab views, open fire and a useful utility room.

Lovely location

  • 4 of 5

Lilac cottage is in an idyllic location with beautiful views over Wensleydale. We liked the children's framed welcome paintings as well as the old photographs on the walls around the cottage. The beds are very comfortable and the cottage is clean (thanks to the weekly housekeeper) and well maintained overall. The kitchen is well stocked with plates, pans etc. However a "deep clean" might help once a year as it is an older property and harder to keep looking spotless as a result.

If you stay there, be careful when reversing out of the garage as the corners and angles are awkward.

We will certainly stay there again.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do this fabulous cottage justice a really great too with location in the Yorkshire Dales. Doorstep away to walking into the fells and great for mountain biking too, some really good routes close by. Very helpful Tourist Information at Hawes to cater for your needs with sound local knowledge. Cottage was excellent had everything we needed there and lovely size rooms too.

I will definitely be returning as there is so much to see and do at this really lovely location. Thank you Lilac Cottage.
