Why stay here ...

Hawes Club Site is set in beautiful Wensleydale, where the famous cheese has been made for nearly a century, and offers delightful views. Redeveloped in 2017 and now with 10 serviced pitches, it's situated between the River Ure and the market town of Hawes and is the northern most of The Club's trio of sites within the boundary of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park.

With the beautiful Dales right on the doorstep of Hawes Club Site, walking enthusiasts will have hours of captivating landscape to explore. The Pennine Way is another must - it still carries tracks made in previous centuries, so you can literally feel you are following in your ancestors footsteps. Also within easy reach from the caravan park, Hawes is one of the highest market towns in England at 850 feet above sea level and is blessed with an immense character that really needs to be experienced. You can stock up on supplies at the local shops in town and there are plenty of cosy, traditional pubs that offer food. Set in the beautiful Dales countryside, the Simonstone Hotel offers a delicious afternoon tea.

Warden clearly does not understand pitching rules

The wardens on this site clearly need to be educated by the club with regard to pitching. They seem to be under the misapprehension that all motorhomes with the habitation door to the offside should be parked on a pitch with the front near side to the marker peg, even though the site plan clearly states that you can park, either with the front near side or the rear offside to the peg. He even made a couple on a pitch opposite move his chairs from a grass area between his van & his friends van on the next pitch. Did not enjoy our visit.

A disappointing stay

We have been staying on this site for many years and have always enjoyed our stay. The fishing is great in the nearby river and Hawes itself is a lovely place to visit. The site is clean apart from people who do not pick up their dog mess (of which there was quite a lot on this visit). We saw people reserving pitches often by placing their caravan equipment on the pitches etc and one woman even ran round with her dog bed and dog and stood on the pitch for 20 minutes even though there was a queue for people checking in! Children riding their bikes through the "Pawnine Way" refused to close the gates so if you did let your dog off the lead in the field, there was a risk of them running out. Unfortunately, on the first and last night we encountered noise from other members. Not just noise, but one family where phyically fighting, play football and screaming and shouting untill gone 11pm. The wardens were helpful, but I felt we shouldn't have to keep complaining to them. This is the first time in 20 years we have had to complain. The site has really changed this year. We hope our next visit will be better and the site back to what it was in previous years.

A great taste of Yorkshire, with an odd flypast.

We enjoyed our stay at this site, close to the village of Hawes, with all the charms of a rural Yorkshire village and I can only echo what others have written. It really is that good.

Facilities are very good and kept very clean and tidy. The pitches likewise are of a high standard. There's even a large games room for kids on wetter days! The dog walk is superb, where animals can be let off their leads to run off steam.

The RAF use the Yorkshire moors for low level flying training, so if you’re lucky you may also see one or two of their aircraft barrelling down the valley here. We saw a couple of C-130 transports and a Typhoon fighter whizz by, but these very occasional movements are by no means intrusive, more of a spectacle.

Our favourite!

We have just returned from another enjoyable week at Hawes. Although it was very busy over the bank holiday weekend, the hard working wardens kept everything running like clockwork, and the site and facilities were kept clean and tidy as usual. Our only gripe was the number of members who seemed unable to drive at 5mph around the site, even though several children were about, some of whose parents or carers didn't seem to care where the kids were as long as they were out of their way. Could the club have speed cameras around the sites, and enforce a " 3 strikes and your out "policy? Or even some warning signs indicating that speed cameras are in operation? The wardens should ideally remind everyone as they check in about the speed limit, and when they see anyone doing more than 5mph, take the registration number and the club send them a warning letter.

Just had 4 nights at this well run site, I'm sorry to say that it was spoilt by teenagers riding bikes at high speed around the site, it's time to stop cycling on club sites!
