 A well laid out, clean site with excellent facilities & good access to all pitches.

Friendly & efficient staff always ready to help.

There is a working farm adjacent to the bottom edge of the site but this was in no way obtrusive

We experienced very heavy rain for a day and a half but the site is well served with excellent land drainage and so it was not a problem.

The site is a 15 minutes walk from of Hawes village where there are many attractions including the very interesting Dales Country Museum and the Wensleydale Creamery.

It is also an excellent centre for covering the Dales which has a varied selection of places to see and things to do, also many excellent places for eating and shopping.

 A really good site close to town yet quite.

Nice helpful couple running the site. Great for dogs.

Only problem was the weather but still enjoyable with many walks and attractions.

 Lovely campsite, very tidy and clean facility block.

Walking distance to the village of Hawes about 1/2 a mile.

Would definitely stay there again and will recommend to friends too.

 Wonderful location in the Yorkshire Dale's with an easy walk into Hawes, magnificent views from some pitches.

Spotless facilities block but have to agree with other comments about closing all toilets at the same time. Shame they can't leave the facilities door open to avoid you having to touch them but I assume they are worried about passing walkers using them.

Also found hand sanitisers empty at several of the service points. They appear to be not cutting the grass at the moment but the wildflowers did look pretty.

We were unlucky enough to be situated at the bottom of the site Close to the farm, very smelly at times and noisy with tractors when we arrived but it did get better.

Also the WiFi is advertised as Gold but we found it to be very slow and constantly dropping out. Moved onto River Breamish afterwards and so much better. Poor TV signal even on the bollard. All minor points but the difference between four and five stars. Shame as it's a stunning location.

 A lovely quiet site and well laid out in 2 areas. We were on a little cul de sac for 4 caravans.

The site was level gravel. The wardens friendly and helpful. The site was clean and tidy.

The toilet block always clean and spotlessly tidy. About a 10 minute walk into the town centre with quite a few little independent shops.

A lovely chippy in Hawes.

 We decided to give this site a try due to all the excellent reviews that we have heard about it on various review platforms. Lots of Facebook groups that Iím on vote this as their favourite site so we had to give it a go. To be honest I was exceptionally disappointed but to try to be fair Iíll give you the pros and cons of the site.


1. The location of the site is excellent, a short walk from the centre of Hawes village.

2. The site and toilet block and other facilities were kept immaculately clean and tidy.

3. The wardens were very friendly and helpful

4. If you like walking there are lots of fantastic walks in the area.


1. The majority of the pitches were very sloping from side to side which meant use of levelling ramps which we really dislike.

2. The smell on the site was absolutely awful. There is a farm next door so you get the standard farmyard smell which is only to be expected in the countryside, but the site is directly opposite a sewage treatment works and you get the dreadful smell from there as well.

As we were there for a week, we put our awning up but we were unable to use it because the smell outside would get into your clothes and your hair and you could taste it in the air. We werenít even able to cook or eat in the awning because the smell was so vile it made you want to vomit rather than enjoy your meal.

Even on nice sunny days I couldnít sit outside and we spent the vast majority of every day off site because we couldnít stand the smell. The guy on the pitch beside us left early, telling us he was going home to get some fresh air!

I lived the first 35 years of my life in the country so I am used to farmyard smells but this was something else and almost unbearable. Maybe this was an anomaly and isnít the norm, maybe we were just unlucky, but I would never go back

 Caravan and Motorhome Club site. Fabulous site very clean and tidy. Lovely warm toilet block with hot water all the time. Fantastic large field for dog walking.

Easy walk into Hawes where there are many pubs, cafes and shops. Rope making factory is very interesting and you can buy several rope items and the National Park shop/displays etc at the old railway station just behind the rope making place.

A nice riverside walk to Hardraw and pub that serves meals. This is also the turnstile entrance to the magnificent Hardraw Falls. In Hawes, on the outskirts, is the Wensleydale Cheese factory and cafe and restaurant. You can go on a guided tour of the cheese factory - have to pay, sorry donít know the charge but reasonable.

Lots of places to visit round and about eg castle Bolton, Aysgarth Falls, Richmond castle and to the west within easy distance of the Lakes.

 We were recommended to visit this site many years ago but have only just got round to it. All I can say is that I wish we had listened to our friends and gone earlier! This is a fabulous site in a lovely area with lots of walks, perfect for dog walking. The on site dog walk, suitably named "The Pawnine Way" is the best we have ever come across and was very much enjoyed by our cocker spaniel, Buddy.

We were very lucky with the weather and experienced a heatwave while we were there, so much so that we got up early to walk before the heat of the midday sun hit. We bought a book of walks in one of the shops in Hawes and did a couple of them which were great. We walked to The Green Dragon pub which marks the entrance to the Hardraw Force which is well worth a visit - a beautiful waterfall in a country park setting (dog friendly too)with a small entrance fee. We drove to Aysgarth Falls and walked the Ingleton waterfalls trail which were both very scenic.

Hawes itself is a lovely little town but on Bank Holiday Monday was overrun with motorbikes which spoiled it somewhat but only for that day. The Wensleydale Cheese Factory and shop are within easy walking distance of the site and we ate a nice but quite expensive lunch in their garden which welcomed dogs; great cheese toasties though!

There are plenty of takeaways to choose from in Hawes and they are in walking distance of the site if you have a microwave to reheat them when you get back. Lots of pubs to choose from too; we ate at The Crown Hotel on the main road which offers barbeque style food and welcomes dogs.

All in all a fabulous site with lots to do in the area, especially if you have a four-legged friend to entertain. CMC sites are sadly becoming very expensive nowadays and we would have to think twice about using them if we were still travelling with our 3 boys which is a shame but you can always be sure of clean facilities and Hawes is no exception.

 Great location and lovely walks along Pennine way from site, fishing available from field at back of site. Hawes is a lovely village with several places to eat and the fish and chips where delicious.

The site is split into two either side of the entrance road and when we arrived there where at least six pitches coned off and reserved for caravans that came later and the rest of that side was busy (this was the side with the only toilet block) so we pitched on the other side of the road but nowhere does it say in the brochure or on the net that you are right next door to a very busy and noisy working farm.

I realise that the site needs to be maintained but petrol hedge cutter at 9am really! Our neighbour's were still in bed and the people across where eating breakfast outside and had to go in, it sounded like a 2 stroke motorbike on full revs.

Would I go back, probably not it's to pricey not to have any peace. Back home I go for some peace and quiet
