Around Hawes and Wensleydale.

Hawes is a traditional Yorkshire Dales market town. Near the head of† lovely Wensleydale, it is a thriving centre for sheep and dairy farming, cheese making and livestock sales. Hawes is a very popular destination, an oasis for walkers on the Pennine Way long-distance footpath and a busy general tourist centre. It has plentiful accommodation and places to visit both in town and around the hills and dales. The Yorkshire Dales Countryside Museum, Wensleydale Creamery (famous cheese makers) and Hawes Ropemakers are among the most popular town attractions.

 

There are many other attractions nearby. Hardraw Force, two easy milesí stroll away, is the highest unbroken waterfall in England.† A 2 hour walk will find Semer Water, a quiet and legendary lake nestling in the fells.† And to climb the fells you donít need to leave Hawes - in different directions you can climb Stags Fell or Wether Fell; Dodd Fell on the Pennine Way lies to the south, and the path northwards from Hawes climbs Great Shunner Fell before leading down into Swaledale with one of the best views in all of England.

 

There are lots of village pubs and tea rooms all around the Dale, pools and waterfalls for family outings, and excellent animal life and scenery for artists and photographers.
