Sometimes described as the capital of upper Wensleydale, Hawes lies near the head of the valley, and is famous as the modern day home of Wensleydale Cheese.

Nearby attractions include Hardraw Force and the Buttertubs Pass, which leads over the fells to Swaledale.

Just outside Hawes is the village of Gayle - at the foot of Sleddale.
