High Bands Holiday Cottage in Gayle, near Hawes in the Yorkshire Dales

High Praise for High Bands

Below is a selection of comments left for us in our visitor’s book. Thanks to everyone for your kind words.

“We had a fabulous holiday in north Yorkshire, and Highbands Holiday Cottage turned out to be the perfect choice for our accommodation.

With 5 bedrooms the cottage is ample for family holidays or large groups. It’ll comfortably sleep 10 adults and has extra bedding for additional youngsters. The kitchen and living area is fabulous.

The cottage is situated in a quiet spot just outside Hawes, in the heart of Wensleydale (you can just see the Wensleydale Creamery from the field round the back) and has good access to the whole of North Yorkshire. There are lovely views from all around the cottage.

I’d rate Highbands 5/5 and simply can’t recommend the cottage or this part of north Yorkshire enough. If you’re thinking about booking Highbands my advice is, go for it, you won’t be disappointed.”

“We’ve had an absolutely wonderful week – the house is perfect and the area gorgeous.  Thanks for a great stay.  Love the sheep looking at us through the window as we wash up.  Love the views, the hills and the massive sky.  Spring is a great time to be here with the lambs, daffodils and blue sky. We will be back!!”
