Fetch up in Hawes on market day, Tuesday, for the best of Yorkshire's highest market town, and then get yourself another bargain at the local youth hostel, which has great views from its lofty perch above Wensleydale. It's a hiker-and-biker-friendly place with pine-bunk dorms sleeping two to eight, though couples and families are just as welcome and will find the prices pretty unbeatable, especially if you're looking for something with self-catering. Two of the rooms are en-suite, otherwise you share utilitarian but spotless showers and loos – top choice has to be room 13, a two-bedded bunk room, with its en-suite bathroom boasting a "loo with a view". Views from the dining room are pretty handsome too – there's a good-value meals service at breakfast and dinner – and like most YHAs these days, you can buy a local ale or some wine to go with your meal, though the town's pubs are just a few minutes' down the road. Or chill out round the barbecue in the back garden and take in more of the lovely Dales scenery.
