Cottages in the Yorkshire Dales

View All


The Yorkshire Dales

Carved from the rugged Pennine hills by ancient glaciers, gently eroded by rushing streams and then softened by meandering rivers, the Yorkshire Dales form one of the most varied and spectacular landscapes in Britain. Scenery so breathtaking and unspoilt that some 680 square miles have been protected as a National Park since 1954 – the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Consisting of many “dales”, great and small, the main dales of the National Park are made up of Wensleydale, Swaledale, Bishopdale, Coverdale, Raydale, Arkengarthdale, Littondale and Wharfedale.

The Yorkshire Dales has over 1200 miles of footpaths criss-crossing the valley floors and moors for you to enjoy 

first hand. Sparkling waterfalls abound more than anywhere else in Britain. The Pennine Way passes through Hawes, and England’s highest waterfall Hardrow Force is close by. Be mesmerised by the falls at Aysgarth in mid Wensleydale. If you’re into searching out red squirrels experienced walkers now have the chance to enjoy a 10-mile there-and-back hike to a squirrel view point set up in woodland in Snaizeholme, near Hawes. Why not try out your map reading skills on an orienteering course or try some GPS fun with geocaching.

Country Hideaways may not be the biggest cottage holiday broking company but they are certainly the best! Anyone wanting to holiday in the Yorkshire Dales area would be hard pushed to find better service, more friendly people with whom to deal, or a finer catalogue of cottages from which to choose. Having been their customers for many years and using their services several times each year, we have always been delighted with both their warmth and efficiency. Look no further for the best company to make your Dales holiday a perfect one!

David Shipley - May 2024

Always a joy to return to Masham and Forge Cottage. Country Hideaways are a small but excellent agency providing holiday cottages in the Yorkshire Dales. I would always choose Country Hideaways when looking to stay in the Dales.

Robin Handley - April 2024

Had excellent stay at Hazeley Cottage, West Burton. The property was very comfortable and clean, and the kitchen was modern and well equipped. We arrived in February in a snowstorm and had some personal mobility problems, but Joanne and Nadine were extremely helpful in arranging for our needs, so would highly recommend this agency for that reason alone.

Leonard Dolphin - March 2024

My fifth stay at this delightful little cottage (Lion Cottage), spotlessly clean and equipped with everything needed. Very efficient booking system and telephone assistance from Country Hideaways.

Janet Ivin - October 2023

Country Hideaways offer a select group of cottages in the Dales, Forge Cottage in Masham is a favourite of mine and i have stayed there many times. Their agency is very easy to book with online and they have a very modest agency charge far more reasonable than the bigger agencies. I give them 5 stars !
