Owners Notes

3 Brandymires is known as 'Miss Burrows House'. Miss Burrows was born in 1905, died in 2010 and lived in the house for the large part of her 105 years. As a young woman she'd been away to college but returned to Hawes as a qualified teacher to work at the Primary School. Any Hawes resident over a certain age will know Miss Burrows, having been taught by her and, probably, whacked by her, for she was by all accounts a strict teacher as well as a great character and well liked. Her father was a saddler working from home and after her parents died Miss Burrows, who never married, carried on living at the house on her own.Brandymires had been built in the early 1800s. The story is that the owner of the tall house at the end (until recently operated as Brandymires Guest House) had the four adjoining cottages built, one for each of his daughters. They are exceptionally well built and in the front bedroom the cupboard has a full size door but is very shallow. This is said to be where the connecting door to the next cottage once was, but has long been bricked up. Miss Burrows had modernised the house in the 1950s by having electricity and a bathroom installed, but few other changes were made and the house retains many excellent original features, particularly the staircase and doors throughout, and York stone floor in the kitchen and dining room.
