Swaledale has a vibrant network of arts, crafts and local produce, such as wood furniture makers, jewellery, woollens, sculpture and photography. And we have an abundance of wonderful local foods, from cheese to honey, spring lamb to real ale. All feature in a wide range of little shops up and down Swaledale, and at the handy Friday market on Reeth green.

Whether it’s a little treat to remind yourself of your holiday, or a present for those unfortunate enough to be waiting at home, you’re sure to find an interesting or unique local gift to take home!
