We headed off into deepest Yorkshire in February for some Wensleydale Capers...
In Hawes, the Wensleydale creamery really is a great day out with something to do for everyone, great walking country from Hawes, again visiting various sites where the tour de France will be coming later this year, the Yorkshire dales at their best.
From Hawes starting a10 mile circular walk along the Pennine Way, taking in the ancient Green Dragon Pub and famous Hardraw Force waterfall.
Following a creamy pint of Timothy Taylor’s Landlord ale, you gain access through the pub to the amazing waterfall at the rear.
A bustling market town, supporting many shops, pubs and restaurants. The centre of the community for us was Richardson’s fine food store, with everything from local grown vegetables and well-butchered meat, to every shade of Yorkshire cheese, a vast array of everyday groceries, and a fine upstairs wine department that could put Waitrose to shame
A 2002 Chateau Grand Puy Lacoste Pauillac did the trick accompanying some lovely local lamb cutlets, sealing the deal on a most enjoyable trip
