Cottage/Bothy in Yorkshire Dales, West Burton, Wensleydale, England, UK - Romantic Retreat Nesled In A Secluded And Peaceful Valley
About Juliet Maddan
I was born in Wensleydale and my ancestors have been living here for several generations. I am mother of three boys and one girl. It is wonderful that my husband and I have been able to bring our children up in such an unspoilt place. We would love to share this special place and give you a base to explore. We have experienced the beauty of the dales by walking, riding, fishing and canoeing.
Juliet Maddan purchased this Cottage in 1949
Why Juliet Maddan chose Hawes
The Bothy is completely secluded with its own entrance on a farm that is now our family home. The property is set within 40 acres, with wonderful views of the hills, moors and River Ure. Its unspoilt setting is a wildlife haven. A great to place to unwind away from the busyness of life. Despite being deep in the countryside, it is very easy to access by car with the A684 nearby.It also has good wifi due to a recent upgrade which is an extra benefit as some Dales properties don't. A timeless place where every season has a beauty of its own.

Incredible location and lovely cottage
Place was great, was very glad to have had the weather to make the use of the river and waterfalls within walking distance out of the back of the property. Would love to stay again!
A rural paradise... Superb!
Fabulous converted barn in a delightful rural setting in one of the nicest areas in England . Beautifully set up with everything we needed and close to all the wonderful villages in Wensleydale . Great to walk over the farm along banks of River Ure , felt really part of the Dales way of life ! Had a great stay , would love to come back .
Thank you for coming ! Just using this moment to emphasise that the wifi in the Bothy has been rewired and works very well. In the past it was on the weaker side. due to a transmitter from the house ! Thank you Alan again it was super to have you!
The Bothy is a truly wonderful place to stay. Quiet clean, relaxing with owners unobrtusively on site if needed. Pleanty of lovely walks in the area together with the wonders of the Dales on the doorstep. Highly recommended.
Thank you for coming. We love people to find a haven here and feel all is well with the world. Please come again either to the Bothy or our lovely home in Tenerife. We look forward to welcoming you again I hope.
