Cottage in the Dales

Coming Soon

Thanks to the generosity of TGA Mobility this hub, which is based at Cottage in the Dales, Newbiggin near Leyburn, has two different wheelchairs which are available to borrow. The Whill Model C and Maximo Plus are both compact mobility scooters which fold up to be able to fit into the boot of a car.  This means that people can take the scooters with them for a day and explore beautiful places such as Aysgarth Falls, Cotter Force,  and the Dales Museum and Creamery in Hawes.

There are many abandoned lead mines, quarries and limekilns in the area highlighting its industrial past.  A short distance from the town is Aysgill Force waterfalls.
