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 !!!!
