Herriot's is a superb 4* Guest House located in the popular Yorkshire Dales Town of Hawes. The property offers 7 attractive letting bedrooms all with ensuites, coffee shop, gallery business and separate owners accommodation.

Situated on the town's one-way system, there is lots of passing trade and the bustle and facilities of a lovely town immediately on the doorstep with glorious countryside all around. Hawes is an important tourist and business centre for the Yorkshire Dales National Park, located midway between the M6 motorway to the west and the A1 to the east. It is easily accessible, therefore, from the vast onurbations of the North of England and makes a wonderful base for walkers and tourers. The Pennine Way, Dales Cycle Way and Herriot's Way all pass through the town. Hawes has a traditional feel with weekly market, auction-mart, good pubs with real ales and hearty food, library, churches, a wide range of independent shops and a primary school. The town is also home to the famous Wensleydale Cheese Factory and the Dales Museum.

The current owners have been in residence since 2011 and since then have completed various refurbishment works including, new steel fire exits to the rear, central heating throughout, replastering, new windows and doors, new bathrooms and overall décor throughout. They have thoroughly enjoyed every moment at Herriot's, however, after recent health issues they feel now is the time to take on a quieter pace of life and allow Herriot's to go from strength to strength with new occupiers.

Herriot's combined business of guest house, coffee shop and gallery draws income from locals and day visitors to the town as well as the guest house residents. The business currently trades Easter through till the end of October but could be open throughout the year given that there is always plenty of trade available in the bustling town of Hawes. Accounts available by request.

Internally the property currently offers 7 letting bedrooms all with ensuite shower rooms. Each room is well equipped with seating areas, tea and coffee making facilities and lovely views over the town and hills in the distance. On the ground floor is a lovely split level coffee shop and gallery with catering kitchen space. There is also the added benefit of separate owners accommodation which has the flexibility of offering as one or two bedrooms.

Externally there is a lovely stone terrace to the front and stone terrace to the rear with gravel seating area overlooking the rooftops and hills in the distance.
