Look No Further: Northallerton


Northallerton Flikr/Glen Bowman
Lying in the Vale of Mowbray deep in Herriot country, the shops, cafés and restaurants on Northallerton’s bustling High Street are a shopper’s paradise

One of the most popular places amongst locals is Casa Rustica, a delightful little Mediterranean bistro that also serves delicious coffee and pastries. And no trip to Northallerton would be complete without popping in to Bettys. For great pub grub and quality cask ales, head to The Crosby Village Inn in Thornton-le-Beans.

Northallerton is blessed with a number of excellent hotels, including the Allerton Court Hotel, close to the railway station with its popular restaurant. For a touch of luxury, Solberge Hall Hotel is only a few minutes’ drive away. For a quality B&B, try The Village Inn in Brompton or Somerset House Farm in the nearby village of Ingleby Cross.

Northallerton offers everything for the discerning shopper, from the fantastic market on Wednesday and Saturday, to the town’s wealth of great independent shops, including the gourmet groceries of Lewis & Cooper. A few miles away in Swainby is The Luxe Company, which stocks a fabulous range of fashion, accessories and products for the bedroom and bathroom.

Around the corner 
Set amid woodland in Staddlebridge, Mount Grace Priory is the best preserved Carthusian priory in Britain. Walk around the crumbling ruins, explore the reconstructed monk’s cell and herb plot and enjoy a picnic in the grounds, which is a haven for wildlife and home to a colony of stoats which inhabit the passages underneath the priory. Afterwards, spoil yourself with dinner or afternoon tea at The Cleveland Tontine.
