At the back is a beautiful garden with amazing views over the Dale.
Review from Sue who stayed in August 2022.
Just a quick email to say how much we enjoyed staying at Brunton Cottage last week. We found it spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped. The location is fabulous and the views from the garden stunning.
We had a lovely week discovering Hawes and the surrounding area and hope to return in the future to explore further.

HONOURED GUEST 2
Meet a guest from 1973
We opened as a purpose built hostel in 1973 and David Brandon-Bravo was one of our first guests.
He recalled a price of about 40p a night and a cap on age, somewhere around 26 years. Times have changed.
David remembers a Warden ruling with a rod of iron and doing chores like food preparation, cleaning and bed making.
Unfortunately, he can not remember anything about the interior. That's fair enough, I couldn't describe the places I visited in 1973!
Lovely to meet you and your son Alex.
PENNINE WAY HONOURS BOARD
