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 Yorkshire 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.

A Fantastic Location for Local Hiking

For 7 days I found this site to be perfectly-situated for hiking around the area and up the hills which form the lengthy valley it sits in. A week after the April re-opening, arrival was efficient and flawless with an outside 'meet and greet'; quite a few pitches will require effort of some kind to achieve even something approaching a level situation. Facilities (no shower access as yet), wifi/TV via bollard output etc were all totally acceptable and cleaned with clearly great effort and proficiency ! A non-sensical policy (seemingly not made properly from 'up high') meant that until I, and a few others apparently, queried it face masks were not required in the facilities blocks; by midweek that was corrected...My motorhome always stays parked at sites, so Hawes CMC was ideal for long-distance hiking/climbs as very decent circular routes could be supplemented with 'return' routes - by taking advantage of a one-way bus trip using the excellent local service available from the town centre; a planned bus/rail/bus day out was aborted as timetables were still in flux ! NB that few routes will offer protection from rain/wind - thankfully my stay was about as perfect as it can get with sun/light winds !

Yorkshire Idyl

Beautifully clean and well-run site. The wardens and staff could not have been more helpful friendly and pleasant, even helping to book an extension to our stay! We stayed on a serviced pitch which was located in corner of the site being closest to the river Ure with lovely views along it and into the hills. A good spot to cycle from, if you can tolerate a few hills, and bracing walks straight from the site. We visited The Yorkshire Dales Brewery in Askrigg, where there is an outdoor beer garden. Enjoyed sampling their range of real ales, and very good value G & T! A great location that requires more visits.

lovely and peaceful

I really enjoyed my stay at Hawes. I wasnt expecting the B roads into it from the M6, so parts where a bit hairy with the wagons coming the other way. it was a lovely site, well laid out, with plenty of space between pitches. I picked a lovely little corner spot near the dog walk, and all i could hear was bleating baby lambs, it was lovely. Staffr were helpful and very friendly. The bathrooms were spotlessly clean, with a band system operating to minimise the amount of folk in there. Showers closed on my visit, so cant comment on them. Site is within half mile of Hawes, which has some lovely shops to mooch in. Some where still closed, but there was plenty to see and lots of walkers and bikers around. The weather was brilliant, which just made my first trip out perfect.

Fantastic site

We've just had a lovely 2 night stay at Hawes in our VW camper. The site is spotlessly clean which I appreciated especially due to COVID. The site owners were lovely & friendly. The site is in a great location surrounded by trees & hills & only 5 min walk into Hawes, which is a pretty village with lots of pubs cafe's with outdoor seating & a great chippy. The wenslydale cheese shop is a must visit, & we walked to Hardraw falls which was lovey. Can't wait to visit this site again.
