We were walking across from Upper Wharfedale to Hawes and stopped for a welcome pot of tea which was served outside for us at a picnic bench. Very friendly and helpful staff. A good find.

After walking around Semerwater, we visited the little tea room at Raydale Preserves and what a lovely little find. The venue is quite magical, set as it is, in this lovely little hamlet. The owner is a lovely man, warm and welcoming... we enjoyed a...More

Lovely tasting room & prices very reasonable. New salad dressing is gorgeous. While in the village a visit to the tiny church is a must.
