Hawes and the surrounding area
Pry House Farm is situated in the middle of the North Yorkshire National Park, with a number of ancient castles and abbeys in the area. The Lake District is within a 45 minute drive, and Pry House Farm is therefore an excellent base to explore the delightful countryside on either side of the The Pennines. Hawes (which can be dated back to 1699) is on the A684 road from Sedbergh to Leyburn. It is the highest market town in the country and contains several good country wear shops. There are various pubs there together with Craft Shops and restaurants, offering a choice of evening meal to suit every palat. Market Day is on a Tuesday. The Wensleydale Folk Museum, along with Cheese, Pottery and Rope Makers, are also to be found in Hawes.There are a number of interesting and worthwhile places to visit in the local area. The village of Hardraw, a ten minute walk from the farm, has been made famous by the “Robin Hood – Prince of Thieves” film, in which Robin Hood (Kevin Costner) bathed naked under the 98 foot waterfall, Hardraw Force. The highest is found in a gorge behind the village church is reached via the Green Dragon Inn. A 20 minute drive down Wensleydale and you are at the village of Aysgarth, here again the film used the Aysgarth Falls to shoot the fight sequence between Little John and Robin Hood.The village of Askrigg is also very picturesque. The makers of the T.V. series to James Herriot’s ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ used the village, and much of the the surrounding countryside for their filming. It was this series that put the North Yorkshire Dales firmly on the tourist’s map.
