Hawes

Welcome to Hawes

Last weekend we took advantage of the good weather (good job we did, because we certainly don't have it this weekend) and took a scenic drive further into the Yorkshire Dales to the town of Hawes.

I've been hearing all about this place, famous for its Wensleydale cheese creamery, for some time so I was glad that the circumstances allowed for us to get there.

Winding roads

It's a beautiful drive to arrive at a beautiful place, and the cobbled winding streets, peppered with antique shops and tea rooms, are a firm favourite with motorcyclists from all over. It's easy to get lost in a world of your own, whiling away time in nick nac shops, looking at thingumajigs, and being quite awe struck at the beautiful surroundings.

It was such a leisurely afternoon, and extremely enjoyable.

On the idyllic drive home, we stopped off at Aysgarth falls, which is on my list of places to visit this summer. It was so pretty, and certainly worth a return journey that will probably involve a hike, dogs and a picnic.
