The Best Places to Stay in the UK


Shopping in North Yorkshire generally means good country produce, and fabulous arts and crafts. All the national park information centres are good places to ask about craft workshops and galleries – some also display local arts and crafts. For food, Helmsley in particular is full of independent food outlets – from bakeries to fishmongers – tucked away down narrow alleys. Pickering too is great for a wander, boasting traditional butcher's shops, old-fashioned bakeries and other yesteryear stores. Both towns also have good weekly markets, though king of the local farmers' markets is at pretty little Hovingham, and in the Dales Skipton's market takes up the whole town centre, and the 300-year-old Tuesday market in Hawes, Wensleydale, is billed as Yorkshire's highest.  You might want to purchase Wensleydale cheeses, cured deli meats and vacuum-packed steaks from Bolton Abbey Estate herds, and maybe a bottle or two of Copper Dragon beer.
