A warm welcome to The Bulls Head Hotel Hawes.

The Bulls Head is prominently positioned in the centre of the Market Place, in the historical Market Town of Hawes.

The hotel is a local run business offering beautiful accommodation in a superb Grade II listed building. It was built over 200 years ago as The Wensleydale and Swaledale Bank before becoming the Black Bull pub around 70 years ago. From there it became the Black Bull Café and was renowned for it’s funeral tea’s. It opened as The Bulls Head Hotel in 2001 and I took it over in January 2013 after running The Old Board Inn in Hawes prior. So you can be sure me and the team will do everything we can to make your stay in Hawes a pleasurable one.

We have six lovely rooms that are en-suite and one room with private facilities. All of the rooms have different features from quirky to romantic and country to views over the surrounding fells and market town. In each of the rooms there are digital flat screen TV’s and tea and coffee making facilities. The hotel is centrally heated and has free WIFI throughout.

The hotel has a ground floor room which can either be a twin or a king size room and is ideal for guests with any disabilities, which is also en-suite.  

We have a beautiful lounge where you can sit and relax after a long walk in front of the real open fire in a large cast iron fire place, a perfect way to enjoy a glass of wine or a cup of Yorkshire Tea and a read of your favourite book.

During the high season The Bulls Head Hotel is home to Ellie’s Tea Room serving amazing homemade cakes, Cream and Afternoon Tea’s and sandwiches, a perfect setting for sitting and watching the world go by whilst enjoying a delicious cake or cream tea.

In and around Hawes there are a number of local hostelries and eating places providing you with evening meals. If you are heading out for a day on our beautiful fells then we can provide a healthy packed lunch that will sustain you thorough your walk or should you prefer a romantic afternoon sitting by the river then try one of our luxury hampers, that will set the scene for a perfect romantic lunch whilst enjoying the peace and quiet and views of the staggering fells all around you.
