We were so sorry to arrive today and find Raydale Preserves closed, despite a sign giving opening hours and showing they should have been open. We wanted to support a local business and were willing to spend. We might also have liked coffee and cake....More

We stumbled upon this place when on a walk from Bainbridge to Semer Water via Stalling Busk. Probably not worth visiting unless you are in the area, but we were delighted to come upon it. They sell jams, chutneys and ketchup and also have a...More

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.

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