Groundstones Cottage

Ground Stones has been recently converted from a traditional long barn into luxury self catering cottages. Accommodating eight people, the cottage is bursting with character - exposed beams, log burning stove (a basket of logs is provided), internal exposed stone walls and fantastic views over the Dale. Ground Stones has an adjoining cottage (Roof Stones) that sleeps six - perfect for larger families, offering privacy with en suite facilities to the master rooms. They can be booked together to accommodate 14 guests. Each cottage overlooks a private rock garden with the facility of a fully South facing garden, complete with a barbecue and a charming arbour bench! There is also a shared games room with pool table, darts and board games.
Situated in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Ground Stones overlooks Wensleydale fells, moors, the River Ure and the unspoilt countryside between. Nestled on the outskirts of the bustling market town of Hawes (0.5 miles) with its county-renowned deli, the famous Wensleydale Creamery, Rope makers Centre, restaurants, five pubs, tea-rooms, bistro, clothes shops and lovely gift shops. For adventurous guests there are two complementary fishing passes for the River Ure - just a short walk over the adjacent field. And there are local walks a-plenty! (maps provided).
