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.

    Nicer than expected, rooms better than pictures, clearly been redecorated recently. Very, very clean with very comfy bed and hot, powerful shower. Lovely and cosy after a wet hike. Rooms are small but that's the nature of the building, they managed to fit in everything we needed. Enjoyed watching the sheep on the hill opposite with a cup of tea in bed. Breakfast was the best of the trip. Loads of cold selection and well cooked, big portioned fry up. The lad serving us a breakfast was brill too, nice and friendly and very helpful with us and other walkers. It's a shame we weren't there when the restaurant was open as menu looked good.

    Stayed at this hotel for one night. The positives were: Friendly staff Bedroom and bathroom were very clean Dinner in the restaurant was excellent Location was excellent The negatives were: Described as a superior double room, it was very small Only one chair to sit on Only three coat hangers in the wardrobe None of the drawers was wide enough to hold even a folded shirt Only one packet of two biscuits on the tea/coffee tray There needs to be a little more attention to detail to make this room worth £140 for B&B

    Lovely little cottage,right in the middle of town. Small but cozy. Clean and comfortable. Kitchen equipped with cooker, oven, microwave, fridge/freezer and washing machine/dryer. For us essential as two of the group had been walking the Pennine Way, so clean, dry clothes were a god send. Upstairs is a double bedroom and the bathroom. The bed was comfortable and warm and even though it overlooks the main street, traffic ceases by 10 pm so quiet. The bathroom was fantastic. Shower, double sink, toilet and the bath. What can I say about the bath? A lovely deep, rolltop bath. Another god send for the walkers to relax their aching muscles. Plenty of hot water was available. The next floor is accessed by a very steep staircase. The room is built into the attic and contains two single beds. The two walkers had no complaints about the beds, telling me they were comfortable and it was quiet in the room. The cottage is very close to all the amenities in Hawes, with parking spaces in front, if you're lucky enough to grab one, otherwise, there is a carpark within easy reach, but you will have to pay to park there. The staff in Cocketts hotel, next door were you collect your key, were pleasent and friendly, though as we didn't need them, we had very little contact with them. All in all a very pleasant long weekend and I wouldn't hesitate to book this cottage again.
