Brown Moor CC Site Hawes - Yorkshire Dales

Post by MrsCC on Sun Jul 15, 2012 8:31 pm

Arrived at Brown Moor Caravan Club Site in Hawes. It has 110 hard standing pitches and is a lovely site within the Yorkshire Dales, hills in the background, a great back drop for any site. The Wardens were friendly and available to help at any time, one of the friendliest we have come across. handshake

The site is split into 2 by the approaching driveway. Left hand side had fantastic views but most pitches taken up (as expected with those views) except for the pitches not in use due to the recent rain. The left side had vacant pitches still with views of the hills but just not as good as the other side. We found our pitch, set up and then walked around the site with our pet dog Candy. doggy The toilet blocks were clean and in keeping with the scenery. Surprisingly for a 110 pitch site, there were only 6 showers for ladies which appears inadequate. However I didn’t have to wait any morning for a shower so I presume I was lucky during our stay. The Motor home service point was just outside the toilet blocks spacious and easy to use.

TV reception was analogue only until October 2012 so the radio came in useful as we only had a digital TV. Wi-fi internet access was available. surfing

On site there is a circular dog walk – unfortunately unable to use this unless we fancied getting our feet wet due to the recent rain pooling along the walk. However the site map showed a circular walk with scoops and dog waste bins along the route.

If you turn left out of the site a 10 minute walk takes you into Hawes village centre. A further 10 minute walk takes you up to the famous Wensleydale creamery, cheese tasting, gift shop and a restaurant with a good menu at reasonable prices. Well worth a visit

If you turn right out of the site a return journey to Hardraws Force is well worth the 1 ½ hr walk for a £2 entry fee. Entrance is through a pub – green dragon inn.

An ideal campsite for visiting the Yorkshire Dales, lovely surrounding scenery and a place we would be happy to stay at again. allthumbz

Entrance used to be free if you had a drink in the bar first.
Did you go to the top of the falls? and then along the path upstream?

Hi Frank

We couldn't get to the top of the falls as the bridges across the river were roped off. We think they were undertaking repair work. We did see the many steps leading to the top and wondered if you could get up there but alas we could only see the falls from below - still a great view though

Yes you can, not really for the feint hearted though smile! some of the handrails were rusted away the last time I was up there (many moons ago) once you are up there you can follow the river upstream through a wooded glen past a few small waterfalls - a nice little walk on a good day.
