What about spending some time red squirrel gazing? There is a viewing area and feeding station at Snaizeholme above Hawes where you can go and spend some time, hopefully as they don’t always come out on cue, looking at these cute animals. Found in the coniferous woods at Snaizeholme there is a two and a half mile circular trail with feeding station for the squirrels on the route. You may even be lucky enough to spot roe deer and the many wild birds. The trail is through the woods so will be uneven with steps and steep gradients so do be prepared with stout shoes and walking sticks if you feel the need.
Park at the Dales Countryside Museum and catch the Little White Bus, please book in advance, making sure to let the driver know when you would like to be picked up for your return journey. Alternatively there are two parking spaces for visitors at a charge which have to be booked at the Hawes National Park Visitor Centre at the Dales Countryside Museum.
All our cottages are well within striking distance of Hawes and we have beautiful Burnside View which sleeps four comfortably in Hawes. Call me Nadine or my daughter Joanne on 01969 663559 to book over the telephone and for friendly help and advice or do book online here on our Country Hideaways website if you prefer.
We’ll very much look forward to hearing from you quite soon!
