Welcome to all visitors - past, present and future (more and more of you are 'regulars'). We are so pleased to 'share' the Overdale experience with lovely people who enjoy the countryside

There is stunning scenery all around the cottage offering good walking on grassy paths from the front door. Alternatively, the walk into Hawes, along the historic stone flagged path through sheep filled meadows leads you to a lively small town with a range of attractions to suit all tastes.

Attractions in Hawes include the Dales National Park Visitor Centre and Museum in Hawes which has masses of current and historical information about the area and The Rope Shop - see ropes being made (rope-makers.co.uk) - with a great range of quirky toys. At The Wensleydale Creamery, you can see the famous cheese being made, sample and buy any variation you could imagine and eat at the excellent restaurant and café. The Pennine Way is close by but the discerning walker will probably prefer the many other quieter paths which abound the area.

Nearby are:

Aysgarth Falls (6m) - a series of impressive waterfalls
Hardraw Falls (2m) - the waterfall with the longest drop in England - entrance is through the quirky Green Dragon Pub.
White Scar Caves (15) - the guided tour is a must.
Bolton Castle (8m) - featured on the Dales TV programme.
The Forbidden Corner (10m) - a wonderful attraction for children
Semerwater (2m) - good for bird watching and for walking to Stalling Busk where you can sample local jams and preserves at Raydale Preserves.
Black Sheep Brewery (25m) A fascinating tour and plenty of samples.
