Wensleydale is arguably the most beautiful of all the Yorkshire Dales, a broad sweeping Dale down which the River Ure twists its way through breathtaking scenery. Hawes (the name is derived from old Yorkshire dialect ‘hause’ meaning pass through the mountains) stands at the head of Wensleydale, at the point where the Dale abuts the central highland mass which forms the stunning Pennine Hills. As a result the surrounding scenery is very dramatic, and ranges from the rounded upland fells of the Pennines, to the broad valley slopes of the Dale at their highest point bare, scarred by rock outcrops, but lower down more fertile until at river level they become green meadows.
The Market Place of Hawes has a range of shops for daily provisions, and also several cafes, and pubs. Tuesday is market day in Hawes for food and goods (in the main street) and livestock (at the Auction Mart) and both these are well worth a visit. There are walks in every direction, strolls by rivers and across meadows, or even along the famous Pennine Way footpath, which passes quite close to Richmond Cottage. Hawes is centrally located for visiting all the Dales and the Lake District which is only 1 hours drive. Hawes offers several interesting visitor attractions, including a working ropemakers, The Countryside Museum and the world famous Wensleydale Cheese Visitor Centre.
