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.
