Hawes Feb 21, 2017
Now the main village in Wensleydale, Hawes is a bustling market town surrounded by beautiful countryside. The main street is full of pubs, cafes, and restaurants, indicating its popularity, although for me, the amount of cars parked permanently on the main street seems to take something away from the attractiveness of the village – nonetheless, it’s an ideal base to explore Wensleydale and while you're there, don't forget to try the famous Wensleydale cheese.

The name Hawes derives from the word Hause meaning a narrow neck of land and the village was granted its Market Charter by William 3rd in 1699.

The Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes is housed in the former Hawes railway station and is open every day from 10am to 5pm (closed 24, 25, 26 December and 1 January) – the museum tells the story of the people and the landscape of the area.

Directions: Hawes is on the A684 between Sedbergh in the east and Leyburn in the west.
