With its charming, cobbled streets, hidden gems and a marketplace centrepiece, Bedale is home to a host of delightful shops offering everything from jewellery and antiques to custom-made furniture, women’s fashion, china, and gifts. Foodies, in particular, are well catered for.

A market town since 1251, Bedale has the only listed Leech House in the country and a harbour 70 miles from the sea! The town is full of character and has a rich history that goes back to the time of the Norman Conquest. It was recorded in the Domesday Book (1086) as a site with a church and grew during the 13th century thanks to it gaining its market charter.
