I have been here a number of times. You self guide though a museum and workshop where rope is being made whilst you walk through. It is very interesting and at the end you can buy a piece of the rope that you have seen being made or a useful item such as a dog lead or they had special offers on cattle halters if you really need one!

We visited on a Saturday while in Hawes - fortunately we had not made a special trip as they are not open at the weekend so no idea how good (or otherwise) it is!

Obviously it's rope making so you have to be interested in the process so good if you are but not everyone's cup of tea. Nice gifts and something different

We went to Hawes especially to visit the rope-makers and potentially to buy a gun dog lead. The museum was well thought out with plenty of explanatory notices. The workers were glum: never smiling or speaking. Perhaps we should have initiated the smiles and discourse. We left feeling informed but down spirited and didn't purchase a dog lead.

Stumbled upon this place by accident, and found it to be quite enjoyable, with free entry and free rope samples, this place is a great place to visit.
