 Very scenic, well-laid out site to usual CClub standards including Wifi that works well! (caravan and camping club - look and learn!) Short walk to Hawes village with plenty dog friendly pubs - perhaps village a bit too 'touristy' since our last visit about 30 years ago - and strange to relate is now quite dog unfriendly with the exception of the pubs. eg no public land to exercise a dog - have never seen so many 'No Dogs' signs! Our dog happens to be well-trained and does not bother sheep, on or off the lead. Only mentioned this because she was not impressed with the site 'dog walk' as it is just a narrow fenced-in footpath round a field which her training did not allow her to use it as a toilet! A small coppice/overgrown area would have made all the difference especially as a lot of land seems to be available - the large children's field was completely unused for example. Sorry to labour the point but this aspect would prevent us re-visiting what is an excellent site otherwise.

 Stayed here for 6 nights as part of our Yorkshire tour. We took a fully serviced pitch as it was all that was available for the full 6 nights. The service pitches had lots of room for car, caravan and awning and of course your own tap, water waste and electric. The site is very well cared for and showers and toilets kept very clean.

You can walk into Hawes from this site and Hawes itself is a lovely wee town with plenty shops and eateries. This is a good base for exploring North Yorkshire and we would have no hesitation in returning.

 We stayed at this lovely site in June for 4 nights even though the weather was not brilliant it did not take away from the beautiful surroundings. The site is spotless and well cared for by the wardens, keeping up the standards that we have come to expect from caravan club sites. The delightful town of Hawes is a short stroll away with shops which provide for all your needs. There are plenty of walks in the area and scenic drives nearby. We will definitely be back hopefully for a bit longer.

 Usual caravan club toilet block always in good clean condition, pitches on either side of the entrance road if you use a satellite dish for your t. V. You need to use the pitches on the right as you arrive on site, as the left hand side has a lot of trees, if you pitch next to the farm you may get the smell of the country side, Hawes has four pubs, a spar, fish and chip shop, indian, cafes, . The wensleydale creamery a must, .

 Lovely Caravan Club site that managed to squeeze us in as a last minute arrival.

Facilities as always very clean, though you do have to remember to take a key with you every time you want to use the loo, shower etc. Some of the pitches are a bit small and close to your neighbour, but others are tucked away with good spacing between units.

If you're approaching Hawes from the M6 then the best route is via the B6255 rather than the A684 which can be very twisty and narrow in places.

Ideally situated in the Dales and only a 10 minute walk from the centre of Hawes with its good pubs and eateries. There are also good outdoor shops, butchers, bakers, cheese shop, fish and chip shop, Spar and a couple of museums.

There are plenty of walks direct from the site, Wensleydale Creamery is on the edge of the village and if you are there on a Sunday and like motorbikes then head for the village centre for a free show.

 This was our first visit to this C. C. Site and it was exactly what you would expect a C. C. Site to be. The wardens were lovely and helpful. The shower block was always clean and the site kept tidy.

There appears to be quite a good dog walk although we didn't use it.

There is also a large games room with table tennis and pool, all kept in fine condition although you will have to buy your bats and balls.

The local information room was stacked with stuff and the wardens posted a weather forecast in the window.

My one niggle is the pitch sizes. We've never been on a site with such variation. Some were big enough for a couple of 747's side by side, some just about big enough for a motorbike with panniers. The site was fairly full when we arrived and we had to take a small pitch just big enough for the 'van and awning. The car was parked at the front part onto the road. But there were small 'vans and caravanettes on huge hard standings. We seemed to be quite close to neighbours. I believe most, if not all, had hook-ups

However this is insignificant when you look at where you are. Wow doesn't really cover it.

Even the site has terrific views.

A ten minute walk gets you into Hawes town. This is a lovely place in it's own right. There

Is a superb butchers, Cocketts, who make their own sausages. Try the Wensleydale or the pork and black pudding. They are also a bakers and make beautiful cakes, I ought to know, I love cakes, me. Their Eccles are the best ever and try the Fat Rascals.

There is an early morning newsagents. A Spar, a good chippie, lots of pubs and cafe/teashops, several outdoor shops plus a good sweetie shop.

The best by far is the Wensleydale Pantry above the Spar shop. If you like good quality, unpretentious, home made food this is the place. Massive portions, delicious and very fairly priced.

The Wensleydale Creamery at Gale, just on the edge of the town is a must. You can watch the cheese being made, have a free taster of about 20 different cheeses, have a meal in their own cafe or restaurant then buy some goodies from the shop.

Also worth a visit is the Dales museum. A really good local attraction.

The fact that you're looking at this site probably means you are walkers and this is definitely walking country. Lots of walks from the site and Hawes without using the car, even more a short drive away. Far too many to list.

Settle to Carlisle railway, Richmond, Askrigg, Aysgarth Falls and Wensley are all worth a visit.

Only one word of warning. If you like sitting outside your 'van late at night with a few bottles of wine and some friends and neighbours having a little party you probably won't like it here, you'll probably prefer it much more somewhere else.

 We arrived on this site after 5 nights at Keswick C&CC site which was very wet & muddy. So nice to to have a friendly welcome and find very large hardstanding pitches with dry areas all the way around.

Excellent facilities, always clean and never had to wait. Good on-site dog walk. Only 10 minutes walk into Hawes which has plenty of dog friendly pubs, we ate at the Fountain and the Crown, had nice meals at both. Also shops and tea rooms.

Very useful walks leaflet/map purchased at the reception gave routes from 3-10 miles straight out from Hawes, lovely walking area.

Variety of birdlife on site and in the area.

All in all one of our most favourite sites so far.

Reviewer: Jimbouk 19 reviews from this member

 First visit to this site and area and can only echo others views of this site.

Standard CC layout and facilities although some pitches were smaller than others and not suitable for use with an awning. Very friendly and helpful wardens

Very easy access to the site although the road from Leyburn to Hawes is very up and down and twisty, not much fun on our way home in the driving rain.

As others have mentioned the main bonus for this site is its location. Pure Yorkshire Dales with great walks on the doorstep, plenty of places and attractions to visit.

Hawes itself is a pleasant 5-10 minute stroll on footpaths has a good selection of shops, proper local pubs and even an Indian restaurant that you take your own drinks to as they don't have a alcohol licence.

A must do is the visit to the Wenslydale Creamery view the cheese making and then fill your boots with as many tastes as you like of the numerous cheeses they make on site. We ended up buying three different varieties and had a lovely evening in the van polishing them of with a nice glass of vino

Liked the site and loved the area, 10/10

 Our first visit to this site - and I don't think it will be the last! Good CC site in a beautiful part of the Dales. Access to the site itself was easy, and it really is less than 10 mins walk into the town (and I'm no great walker). Toilet block was usual CC standard, there was also a large games room and a lovely circular dog walk. Pitches are all hardstanding, we noticed some were on the small side but if you weren't using an awning this wouldn't be a problem. Lots of birdlife, including a couple of very fat pheasant wandering the site. Wardens friendly and site was well kept.

Hawes is a small market town, there is a good butchers (which also sold cakes which were delicious), a Spa and a very nice grocers shop, all handy for stocking up on provisions. Several pubs, most dog friendly as are many pubs in the area. Good walking direct from the site (even I managed some!).

We had an evening drive over Buttertubs Pass (turn right out of the site and follow the road over the hill!) which is spectacular, dropped down into Muker and had a meal at the Farmers Arms, lovely traditional pub and good food.

Also worth a visit are Aysgarth Falls, Leyburn and Reeth, Middleham and Richmond. A walk round Semerwater is beautiful and peaceful.

We liked the site and loved the area, we will be back!

 Just back from a weekend at Brown Moor, this is a lovely well appointed site, with great facilities and very close to Hawes.

Wardens and Assistants are extremely helpful and keep the site very well maintained and spotlessly clean - just as you'd expect from a Caravan Club site.

Plenty of good walking from the site itself, including the short trek to the Green Dragon and Hardraw Force - some decent guest ales and can recommend the Cheese Board!

In Hawes itself the Wensleydale Creamery is worth a visit (more cheese). Of the pubs in town, found the Fountain to sell the best food with decent atmosphere thrown in. The other I'd recommend for drink and atmosphere is the Board and their very lively Sunday evening quiz!
