Stayed on a Sunday night. Used the water filling facility, grey and black waste too. Loo’s were closed. Pleasant, short walk into town. Quiet night spent on gravelled car park, slightly on a slope. Left early on as the farmers were arriving with their trailers for market on Monday morning. Used honesty box to pay which was on a fence post near the toilets. Fairly quiet, felt safe. Views (over the roof of the market) lovely.

Stayed overnight on a Friday. Toilets were open. There was water available and you could drop the cassette in a drain under a steel plate behind the toilet near the honesty box. Great place to stay close to Hawes centre and easy walk across the fields to Hardraw. Please pay the £10 to help maintain this stopover.

This is a good stop in a lovely location. We previously submitted a positive review in 2019. This second post is a polite request to help us be able to continue using this stop. We have just witnessed toilet waste being disposed of in the Marts wash out area at the top of the car park. Please be aware there is an Elsan dispoal point behind the toilet block. The toilets are closed due Covid but the Elsan point is in open. Grey waste can be disposed of in the wash out area. So as per reviews by others please pay at the honesty box and respect basic principles for disposing of waste as this will help us continue to use this stop. Thank you.

Good place to stay over. Close to town, worth paying a tenner for the night.
Very quiet at night. Honesty box is near the toilet disposal, behind toilets.
I rang before, but not sure you need too.
Very nice lady in the office, pointed out the facilities.

Great few days on the car park. Upto 12 of us and loads of room. Water and grey waste top left of the main carpark. Black behind the toilets not open at the moment due to covid. Nice walks to a few waterfalls and easy walk to the shops in Hawes. Visit Wallis and Gromet in the Cheese factory. Stop £ 10 in the box by the toilets. Market day Tue so you should not to stop.

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.
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

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.

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.
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/

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.
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.

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 again

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.

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 :-)
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!!
