    Yes, I am sure that Ralph and Bev have stayed here in the past and they told us about it recently. We stopped at Hawes, it is a lovely little town, make sure you go to the Wensleydale Cheese Centre and try out all the cheese samples:thumb:
    We aren't members of the CCC, so didn't stay at the cattle market, but went onto to stay at the CC site at Lower Wensleydale near Harmby. Enjoy your trip, we've been around there so often now we feel right at home.:BigGrin: From memory there are a couple of CLs close to Hawes and Leyburn.

    There is another small private site in Harmby, with a lovely little pub right next to it. But there are no hardstandings on it, if interested can give you details.

    The last time I stopped at Hawes cattle market there was an honesty box for the parking fee, whether it's still in use I don't know but it's a good market town to stop at.

    Hawes is my favourite village in yorkshire elaine and I go regular
    On trike or with van or even both
    Never stopped on cattle market?
    Have a look at ribbleshead park near viduct or stop and pub site
    Beautiful spot for walking and gaupping at locals and campers

    Do the cheese run it is the best creamery we have ever been in with lots of free samples
    So you can see what you like best
    Easy parking with van

    Enjoy just remember its very busy on a weekend in village

    Many thanks for all the replies and for the the Harmby tip from MHVirgins.

    I have now booked at The Pheasant at Harmby, but will drop in to see the situation at Hawes cattle market and may stay an extra night there.
