Enjoy a rural break in Hawes in Wensleydale

Hawes, Yorkshire Dales National Park

Head to Hawes the home of Wensleydale Cheese, admire Hardraw Force waterfall and watch ropes being made in the traditional way.

One of the great things about a National Park is that there is so much low cost stuff to do.  From the youth hostel in Hawes, a short walk will take you to the new Wensleydale Cheese experience where you can learn about the history of the famous cheese, watch it being made in the Creamery and then go for a tasting session.

Head through town to Outhwaites Ropemakers where you can visit for free and watch ropes being made from scratch to produce a colourful range of dog leads, stair ropes and a host of other products.

Or follow the Pennine Way for a short distance to Hardraw, where England’s highest single drop waterfall crashes into the pub garden.
