A short break

We had a lovely week in Hawes. The site is very well positioned, close to the village and sheltered with plenty of walking routes up into the hills or along the river. The facilities on-site are up to the usual high standard and the refurbished toilet and shower block is fantastic. We were lucky with the weather which was a bonus but there is still plenty to do in the area if it isn't very nice. There are plenty of shops and places to eat in Hawes and the Wensleydale dairy and museum are worth a visit. All-in-all we had a great time, as we always do when visiting this fabulous site.

Somethings never change

After not visiting for 3 years it was no surprise that Hawes was still a fantastic site and place to visit, we arrived on Sunday the 27th in glorious sunshine a wee bit chilly but to be expected. Was greeted by the wardens as their was a que at reception once settled off for a pint or 2 at the White Heart to late for a meal but hey after a couple of beers straight to the Chippy, since we were last their ownership has changed but the Fish and Chips hasn't still brilliant so much so we eat their twice second time on our way back from Leyburn on the little white bus, a must to try it takes you on cracking route taking in Askrigg the setting for all creatures great and small. We spent 4 nights their leaving on Thursday morning, we took in the rope factory and museum, the cheese factory, and of course Leyburn, since the last time we were their the toilet block has been refurbished, all in all a cracking site to visit, great walking and places to visit, a must for anyone whose looking for some new place to visit

Perfect location

Spent a couple of nights here before moving on to Coniston. The site is well kept and perfectly placed to walk into Hawes and also within easy walking to Hardraw Force. Very welcoming staff and excellent facilities. Some standing water but the weather was very wet. We will come back here.

Rainy Cycle World Championships

A very rainy few days causing road flooding meant the race we had planned to watch from site had to be diverted. Obviously not Clubs fault by any means but want to point out how good the pitches remained in these extremely wet conditions. All pitches except one appear to remain absolutely fine. Very good drainage. Note you cannot use site toilets until you have selected pitch, and return to office to tell them pitch number when you will be issued two keys. The site is within easy walking distance of attractive Hawes which has a selection of shops eg butcher baker convenience store and an excellent fish and chip restaurant which also did a takeaway service. The Westmorland creamery on the outskirts is well worth a visit. Good area for walking when weather permits!

Great for Motorhomers

This was our first visit to the site, after a family recommendation. We stayed for 3 days, 4 nights. We will certainly visit again. The site was lovely a quiet and the walk into Hawes was easy. We didnt have the best weather but managed to avoid the worst of the rain. Not having a car with us proximity to local attractions and facilities in essential and Hawes offers this. We also found some nice short walks in the countryside, that could be completed between the showers. There are quite a number of attractions within easy walking distance of the site, but we only visited the Wensleydale creamery on this vist ensuring we still have new things to do on future visits as I am sure we will be back many times as it is only 2hours drive from home. The site was beautifully maintained and the pitch we had was great.

Wonderful, Pity about the weather

Booked for 5 nights but only stayed 4! It rained more or less non stop all day the day before we should have left so at 5 pm we decided to just pack up and go home as only a 2 hour journey. This is the first time we have managed to book into this site and I can see why! The wardens are very friendly and helpful and keep all aspects of the site immaculate. The dog exercising field is fantastic, so big, but the dog did get a bit distracted by the rabbits and other smells that he forgot why he was there! It is a pity that when the site was refurbished that a dog shower was not added, nearly everyone on the site had at least one dog and in bad weather it would be really useful. Easy walk into Hawes with plenty of pubs/hotels and cafes to eat in. Also nice walk through the fields to the Green Dragon pub. Excelkent spot for lots of good walking.

Wonderful first time stay

Hawes had been on our list for some time and we finally spent a perfect 4 days there this September. Friendly helpful wardens, spotless facilities and a well kept site. It's all been said before regarding location etc but please do the 6 mile drive to Reeth over The Buttertub Pass, the road is narrow but the views are simply out of this world. We visited lots of places but the standouts were Askrigg and Kirkby Lonsdale with a fabulous butchers. We will definitely return. If you pitch near number 83,on the back wall near the river a young hedgehog visits every day mid morning, please give him a little dog food to help fatten him up for the winter ahead !!!!

Fabulous site.

Just love this site as do our dogs - it is definitely their favourite of all dog walks. Loads of walking around and places to visit. Love the views from many of the pitches too. Hawes is usually busy but some good food to buy and market (Tuesday) has a good fish stall. Plenty of great cheeses up at the factory and not too expensive either. Can recommend the Green Dragon at Hardraw which is a nice stroll across Haylands bridge and across the fields, very little incline. Never had a problem with rude staff, always found them really pleasant and helpful. Facilities new and always spotless. It is just a pity that so many people fail to read the notice in front of them about shutting the Ladies block door quietly. Don't understand why that is so difficult. Love the herb boxes too near reception. Always a bonus. Will be going back again shortly I am sure.

Tour de Yorkshire 2019

Stayed on this site from 15th to 19th August, it has always been in our top five since we first visited a few years ago and is still in there. The current warden team of Janice Peter Lorna and Roger keep the site really welcoming, clean and tidy. Hawes village has some great places to eat, we tried the creamery this time and we had a wonderful Sunday lunch. We will of course be back.

Last stop, returning from Scotland

Lovely site, friendly and well informed wardens. We had a serviced pitch and used our own facilities in the Motorhome, so did not have the opportunity to rate the site facilities, but they looked comprehensive. Dog walking on site was really good, gave our little chap the chance to vainly pursue rabbits...he tries his best to no avail. Hawes is a lovely little village, it gets crowded, but nothing too bad, lot's of nice places to eat and drink and shops to keep you interested. All in all, highly rated and I'll be back for another visit soon...guaranteed.
