Hawthorn Cottage is a bed and breakfast establishment located in Preston-Under-Scar, which makes the ideal setting for a break in Wensleydale. The oldest part of the house dates back the 16thC with the first floor added during the 18thC. Recent restoration has revealed a lovely inglenook fireplace with an arched span like a packhorse bridge and guests are invited to sit by a log fire in the evening or if the weather is changeable.

The village of Preston-Under-Scar is situated in the heart of Wensleydale between Leyburn and Hawes. It is off the main road, with very little through traffic and it is perfectly placed for many beautiful walks, guests may even pick up a footpath in the field at the bottom of the garden and walk through the valley bottom, or walk east out of the village and take a footpath along the Scar to Leyburn. There are walks to suit all abilities and levels of energy and at the end of the day guests can return to a relaxing atmosphere.

The Dale itself is central for exploration of other Dales, such as Swaledale, Coverdale, Bishopdale and Nidderdale. Visitors with an interest in history will find many fascinating properties such as Bolton, Middleham and Richmond Castles and the Dale is only 50 miles from York and 60 miles from Newcastle. The cathedral town of Ripon is only 25 miles away. Those guests with an interest in gardens will also find many open gardens in the vicinity, from Bolton Castle’s historic garden to the beautiful borders of Newby Hall.
