Wensleydale is full of interesting and quirky shops but you’re also never too far from more practical shopping.
The village has a small independent convenience store but if you want a larger shop with more variety you have a few options within a short drive or bus journey.
A lovely market town that has everything covered including supermarkets (one with an excellent wine shop inside), boutique shops, banks/ATM, butchers, tea rooms, takeaways and restaurants and everything else in between which makes it the best option for variety.
A very popular tourist spot that also has a great selection of shops, as well as the famous Wensleydale Creamery. A lovely lace to wander around while picking all the essentials.
