Accommodation options for your holiday in Hawes
Hawes is the traditional home of the delicious Wensleydale cheese, a creamy and crumbly cheese which goes well with fruit, and is often eaten with Christmas cake in Yorkshire. Visitors can see how this cheese is made at the Wensleydale Creamery in Hawes. The interactive museum appeals to visitors of all ages, and you can also watch a cheese-making demonstration, which includes suggestions for recipes using Wensleydale cheese.
Don't forget to visit the creamery's shop to buy some freshly-made cheese to take home as a souvenir, or to eat at your holiday cottage! You can also have lunch at Wensleydale Creamery, and enjoy dishes made with fresh local ingredients, all inspired by the creamery's delicious dairy products.
Family fun in the Dales
Start your family stay in your Hawes accommodation with a visit to the Dales Countryside Museum. Kids are encouraged to get hands-on, trying out traditional crafts and agricultural skills or "riding" the train which takes you back in time for a glimpse of what life was like in centuries past. If real trains are more your thing, the Stainmore Railway Company in nearby Kirkby Stephen is home to dozens of old steam locomotives and carriages. Regular special events allow visitors to take short rides on these historic machines.
Explore the beauty of the Dales with the help of a four-legged friend; there are stables in Kirkby Stephen which organise guided pony treks along the Pennine Bridleway National Trail. Explore underground with a visit to the impressive White Scar cave in Ingleton, the longest show cave in the UK. Highlights include underground waterfalls and the vast Battlefield Cavern.
The 14th century Bolton Castle sits a few miles outside Hawes. One of the best preserved castles in the UK from this period, visitors can explore the grand rooms and defensive towers, as well as learn about the castle's fascinating history. It was, for example, once Mary Queen of Scot's prison, and was laid siege to during the Civil War.
Gayle Mill is another interesting local historical attraction, a renovated 19th century mill which gives visitors the chance to experience the industrial revolution, as it affected this rural village. For a bit of time outdoors at a famous natural spot, head into the countryside and take a short hike to the nearby Aysgarth Falls, a series of tiered waterfalls which featured in the film 'Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves'.
