Local shops and amenities

Coxwold – Although we don’t have a village shop we do have a village garage, tea rooms, village pub and interior/gift shop!

Ampleforth – The closest place to Coxwold for provisions and newspapers is the post office/shop which is almost opposite one of our favourite coffee shops – Kirks. Ampleforth is also where our local doctor’s surgery is located.

Easingwold – Our nearest place for good local shops and banks. On the market square you can find anything from great butchers and bakers to a hardware store, florist, wine merchant and coffee shops! Also, a Barclays Bank with cashpoint.

Helmsley – A thriving small town with lots of interesting shops centred around the lovely Market Square. Well worth a visit.

Dogs and children

The Shepherd’s is not suitable for dogs or children. We have two well-behaved black Labradors ourselves who are not allowed to roam!
