Description

Part of an original stone barn built in 1871, Hay Mew has been sympathetically converted to a very good standard and is now a comfortable and spacious hayloft, with accommodation over three floors. The cottage is accessed by a rough track and retains many of its original features, set in 400 acres of land and nestling quietly into the hillside below the road to Hawes. With 70 acres of grazing land around the house and the remainder peaty moorland which is perfect for the owners rare breed Dales bred ewes and white shorthorn cattle.
This is a genuine nature haven at the head of the River Wharfe, home to a range of different habitats for birds, fish, mammals and insect life, including red squirrels. Just waiting to be explored are areas of open fell, mature woodland, ancient hay meadows and with Oughtershaw Beck meandering through, this is an idyllic location. Make the most of the on-site nature barn with its maps and information, river and fell observation hides for spotting the local wildlife. Nethergill Farm is surrounded by the spectacular Yorkshire Dales with mile upon mile of walking and cycling routes, and is right on the route of the famous Dales Way with the Pennine Way nearby. This is the perfect location to base yourself if you intend to get out and explore the beauty that this part of the world has to offer. There is easy access to Wharfedale, Wensleydale, Swaledale, Bishopdale, Littondale and many more, with the hidden gems such as Reeth and Hawes an easy drive away. Shop 8 miles, pub and restaurant 6 miles.
Hay Mew can be booked together with Byre (UK2515) to accommodate up to 8 guests.

About the local area

It's given its name to one of Britain's finest cheeses, but Wensleydale has so much more to offer. This is the valley of the River Ure, part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and a popular destination for walkers and hikers.

As well as the rolling landscape of the valley itself, Wensleydale is overlooked by the distinctive flat- topped hill of Addlebrough, above the village of Bainbridge and Penhill, which stands guard over Leyburn. Wensleydale's dramatic scenery is dotted with ancient towns and villages, offering a great range of shops, pubs and tea rooms.

Hawes, at the head of the valley, is the centre of the famous cheese-making industry as well as rope- making, while Hardraw is home to Hardraw Force, one of the highest waterfalls in England.

At Aysgarth, the River Ure tumbles down a limestone staircase at the beauty spot known as Aysgarth Falls.

There are many other fascinating towns and villages in the valley; hidden treasures abound as the Ure flows eastwards. Middleham, with its castle, was the childhood home of Richard III while at West Burton, you can visit the famous Cat Pottery.

Although a walker's paradise, tired feet can let the train take the strain with a trip on the Wensleydale Railway. Heritage steam and diesel trains run along 17 miles of line between Redmire and Leeming Bar at the eastern end of the dale.

Don't forget the famous Buttertubs Pass, a great walk that leads from Hawes and Hardraw, over a high moorland pass and down to neighbouring Swaledale.
