Brown Moor Caravan Club Site, Brunt Acres Road, Hawes, North Yorkshire, DL8 3PS. Tel 01969 667338.
To find site:- The Club advise that you do not approach the site from the direction of the M6 as the road is not really suitable for caravans and large motorhomes. Having driven this route solo I can see why! From the A1 take the A684, signed for Leyburn and Sedburgh. The section between Leyburn and Hawes is a little narrow in places but fine if you take it easy. Take care as you come into Hawes, you need to turn right for Muker and Hardraw, the turning is just at the start of the one way system, it is easy to be caught out and there are no signs saying campsite.
This is a lovely site in a superb location. It is located just on the outskirts of the market town of Hawes. All the pitches are on hardstanding which is very sensible given the changes of weather in this part of the country! The pitches vary in size although all can accommodate a caravan and awning the larger ones will take car/caravan/awning all alongside each other. The pitches are well broken up by trees and shrubs so you don't feel to hemmed in. There are two pitching areas both radiating out from the Reception and divided by the campsite approach road. There is only one toilet block, although it is quite large with facilities being inside and undercover, including the dish wash area. As with other Club sites it meets the highest standards. Additionally there is a large indoor games area for youngsters which includes pool and table tennis tables. Each pitch has access to a TV signal booster but you do need your own lead. We found ITV and Channel 4 to have a good picture but both BBC channels were variable. The RAF use this area of the Dales for training so on occasions you will experience some aircraft noise. A well recommended site.
Five minutes walk away is the town of Hawes which has all facilities. There are several pubs that also do food and several teashops. There is a Spar and a lovely old fashioned grocer which does very nice bread and cakes. Also in the town is a Wensleydale Cheese Factory where you can see cheese being made, they also have a coffee shop/ restaurant on site and a shop selling many varieties of Wensleydale Cheese.
