We've been coming to Hawes for years and always stayed at Bainbridge Ings campsite, but recently it's got really expensive and all hard standing swathes of gravel. Thought we would try here last night. Paid our tenner and had a lovely quiet night after an evening in town.View all reviews by Lozhedgehog
No other vans overnight (6th September 2019).
The toilets are just as good as the campsite.
We'd tried to phone in advance but no answer, all we did was check first that there wasn't an auction planned.
Some have complained in places about it being £10, but when the place is quieter than any campsite and the toilets are as good, and it's closer to the town too £10 is a steal
market was locked when i arrived,should have phoned,parked on the verge on the sedbergh road on the outskirts along with some local cars,not for everyone but did me for 2 nights.View all reviews by doogle
Excellent stop at £10 per night. Large car park with scenic view of the hills. Elsan point, toilets clean and water if needed. Five minute walk to Hawes centre. We rang first to ask if it ok to stay. Spoke to a helpful lady who suggested it is always worth checking , as sometimes they have something on . Stayed Bank Holiday weekend. Six other vans there. Felt safe.View all reviews by zcars7
Scampi30. All of the above mentioned still relevant apart from cost. Now £10 per night payable in the honesty box or at the office if open.View all reviews by Restless
There are facilities to dump both black and grey waste. Also fresh water but not allowed to use a hose to fill up. Better carry a watering can.

We stayed overnight in the cattle market only 5 mins walk into Hawes. Overnight stay is £10 just pay at the honesty box. Level pitches around the edge of the car park . Not very senic but ok as a base for an overnight stop. Would stop here again.
A grest location close to the town with basic but clean toilets. I can recommend the circular walk that passes through Hardraw force. https://www.daleswalks.co.uk/walks/hardraw_force_from_hawes/View all reviews by shirlpotts33
Great overnight stop in Hawes. Short 5 minute walk into Hawes with some dog friendly pubs and cafe. £9 per night payable at the honesty box (behind the toilet block which took a little while to find). There aren’t any facilities apart from toilets on site.View all reviews by lisapaul197583
There were about 6 of us parked up for the night when we stayed but the car park was huge so plenty of space for everyone. Really quiet also. Definitely recommend this site for an overnight stop over.
Nice and quiet plenty of room but not Quite level. Nice to have toilets. £9. Honesty box as mentioned. Ideal for centre of Hawes. Will definitely return.View all reviews by morris2015
Arrived late at night and had the place to ourselves. Slightly sloping and quite icy but very very quiet overnight. In the morning we found the toilets and honesty box - £9 for overnight. 5 minute walk into Hawes. Perfect we’ll be back againView all reviews by bikergirl
Stopped overnight (£10 paid in office ?) & found the MCC rally there when we arrived but this place is so big there was still loads of room. Walked 5 mins into village (ropeworks shut on a Sat !) to plenty of cafes, curry, Chinese & gastro pubs. Great visit to the cheese dept in the Wensleydale creamery & a beautiful walk the next morning across to the Green Dragon & Hardraw waterfall (£3 ea). Forgot how fabulous this place is & will certainly be going back.View all reviews by northernspirit

Hawes is one of our favourite locations for a motorbike rideout, but we have never stopped overnight to experience the evening life, so for my birthday treat we set off from West Yorkshire in the motorhome. Once beyond Keighley we were able to enjoy beautiful scenery. We parked up in the layby near Ribblehead Viaduct for a quick lunch. I am always in awe of this amazing feat of engineering. There was a loud knocking on the moho door and a large gentleman with a ruddy complexion, bushy beard and eyebrows to match, demanded in a gruff voice if we were planning to stop here for the night. I was a little confused wondering if we weren't allowed to park here and as I was was summoning up the courage to reply he kindly invited us to a firework display at the nearby Station Inn pub. Yorkshire folk are the friendliest people :-)View all reviews by nativewarrior
We continued the drive through the stunning Dales countryside arriving in Hawes mid afternoon. We drove to the Cattle Mart and found the gates were closed. Undeterred, we went through, drove past the market pens and turned into the large tarmacced carpark. We had the whole place to ourselves and parked near the toilet building. The carpark does slope gently. There is a tap for water, a large drain for grey water, and the toilets are basic but clean. Payment is made to the 'honesty box' The carpark is bordered by the auction buildings, the rear of terraced houses albeit far enough away that you don't feel overlooked, and there is a council grit store in the far corner. Views up to the hillside at the rear. There was a track that continued past the auction buildings and up towards the fields at the rear but we didn't explore that.
After setting up we walked the very short distance into the town, visiting the Dales Countryside Museum first. We then checked the goodies at the Wensleydale Creamery. We didn't visit the cheese factory on this occasion. We then did a pub crawl. White Hart Inn, with its roaring fire and real ales. The Old Board Inn - excellent real ales and another open fire. We chose to eat next door at The Crown where the food was excellent and reasonably priced. NOTE : if you are visiting in peak season book your table in good time because people were being turned away. These pubs gave us a warm welcome and were dog friendly. We also had a drink in the Working Men's Club ( paid a nominal joining fee) where the drinks were cheaper, but no welcoming open fire. We returned to the moho and had an undisturbed night. The following morning we walked back into the town and had a Full English ( well what else did you expect ...we are bikers :-) ) at our favourite Penny Garth Cafe. They have a live webcam of the main street.
We would stop here again. I would recommend ringing ahead of your visit, or checking the website for auction dates as I think you would be woken up very early on auction days!!
