Cocketts Hotel and Restaurant


The hotel and is well known with guests returning year after year and this hidden gem of is perfectly placed for walkers & hikers with the stunning countryside being a mecca for cyclists too.
Situated in the middle of Hawes, with a sun terrace to relax and enjoy the world going by.
Cockett’s formerly an Inn run by Widow Harrison, the building was bought by the Quakers in 1754 as a rest house for friends before or after meetings at the nearby meeting house, at a time when friends travelled many miles to attend the meetings and needed somewhere to rest and eat.
A condition of the occupancy at that time was that penniless travellers had to be taken in.
There is an inscription over the door, God being with us, who can be against T.A.F AD1668 The initials being of a certain Thomas Arthur Fawcett a Quaker.

    One of the best mini breaks we've had Hawes is a lovely place and Cockets is a great place to stay. Good quality clean rooms and caring friendly staff. Breakfast was excellent and I really can't fault the place. Central to the town. Looking forward to our next visit. PS Dog friendly too.

    We and our two dogs had a wonderful stay, the owners couldn’t do enough for us and were very welcoming. The room was super clean and very comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. We wouldn’t hesitate to visit again.

    Pretty location On surface rooms look good, but look very tired on looking more carefully. Wallpaper peeling, grime around seal in bathroom. Curtains poor quality and ill fitted. No TV other than Netflix, this wasn't really their fault as mast burnt down. On arrival, the explanation of how things work was non existent, couldn't lock bedroom door and had to ask for a demonstration. No evening restaurant available, which was disappointing. Breakfast was fair, but not outstanding. Breakfast service was great though, hard working waiter. Probably won't return :(

    Super place. Perfect location for your Hawes holiday. We popped out the back into the fields past the old railway line. Saw and heard 3 Corncrakes calling. Clean room.

    I had a booking for September 2021 and because a close relative of mine died of Covid last year and I was not permitted to attend her funeral, a memorial service was arranged for a date that clashed with my booking at the hotel. I tried in vain, via email and telephone on at least half a dozen occasions to discuss a possible rebooking to a later date, but nobody ever replied to my emails or answered the telephone, which was permanently set to answerphone mode which frustratingly redirected me back to the website. I have thus lost my booking. This is a very poor service from a hotel that any client should be able to contact , hopefully speak top a human being or at the very least, expect a reply to emails. .
