Hardraw Force, England’s highest single drop waterfall.

Another two-nighter stay, this time at Hawes Caravan Club site North Yorkshire.  We walked and cycled our way around Hawes and the local area.

After pitching up we walked across fields, part of the Pennine Way, from the site to Hardraw to see the waterfall and eat at the Green Dragon Inn.  The waterfall was definitely a site worth visiting and is situated to the rear of the pub.  You pay at the bar, £2.50 each, and it’s just a 5 minute walk away.  The food was average but enjoyable and we had a few drinks before walking back to the site.  Bri reckoned the cask ales were on form and the choice was good.


Next day we cycled into Hawes to the Wensleydale Creamery to see the visitor centre, creamery and museum.  At the end of the tour we tasted and bought a whole heap of cheese.


We cycled on to the nearby village of Gayle where there’s a woodwork mill that has been restored.  However, we arrived between the hourly tours and overheard the guide giving a tour.  I’m sure it was interesting but it sounded a little ?.. Zzzz … So we cycled back to Hawes and had a wander round the local market, sweet shop, and pubs instead!

Another good break.  Couldn’t fault the site or location.

Next stop Knaresborough.
