Discover our world of difference

in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales

We've a treasure trove of beautifully crafted furniture,
fashion, art and design, alongside a wonderful all-day café-brasserie... plus delights from our fantastic
specialist wine merchant. 


The Brasserie



Stepping into Richard's delightful restaurant, the first thing you see is the open plan kitchen, on the go from dawn til late preparing his entirely home-made menu. 


Look beyond, and a welcoming airy cafe-brasserie beckons you - beautiful art, vibrant colours, and deeply comfortable chairs.  Open the menu, and it's immediately clear that this chef really is all about the food.  Fresh, local, seasonal food - modern British with a twist, and surprising pairings of ingredients that set your tastebuds tingling.  It goes without saying that provenance is all - Richard prides himself on local sourcing:


"I'm absolutely passionate about detail.  That's why we cure our own salt beef - from local herds - and smoke our own salmon.  It's why our chefs are in to bake fresh bread first thing every morning.  We forage for wild garlic, sweet talk local farmers into selling us their best beasts and I scour the area for exciting new produce and ideas."






Simon and Sally Robinson created Dalesbred 25 years ago, in nearby Austwick. Everything is still made within eight miles of The Courtyard. Their handmade furniture and gorgeous soft furnishings grace beautiful homes across Europe.

"I'm inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement and William Morris' philosophy: ‘have nothing in your home that you do not know to useful, or believe to be beautiful’"






Nowhere in the UK has a story to match Abraham Moon’s.  In operation for over 175 years, this woollen mill is remarkable as the last place in England to take in raw wool and handle the whole production process through to the finished cloth.   


This means incredible attention to detail and consistent quality at every stage of weaving.  That’s why Moon’s wools and tweeds are used by top name designers like Vivienne Westwood and Ralph Lauren. But back in 2012, Managing Director John Walsh decided there was more to add to the Abraham Moon story:


"I wanted to see Moon original designer clothing.  Stylish countrywear, in on-trend tweeds with jewel coloured linings, contrast stitching and quirky buttonholes - bringing classic designs bang up-to-date.  We're taking our family story one step further adding to five generations of Moon's heritage."



Buon Vino



Buon Vino is an importer, retailer, wholesaler and passionate lover of high quality naturally produced wines from all over the world. We are searching for wines of purity, made using natural methods, organic farming and biodynamic production.


Rob Bagot started Buon Vino in a cottage behind the Shambles in Settle. Now he presides over two beautiful wine rooms in The Courtyard, with an expert selection of over 800 of the best natural wines from all over the world.


A true Italophile, Rob’s initial ventures into wine were inspired by his personal fascination with organic and biodynamic wines. He has an unerring ability to track down great artisan winemakers across Europe who are producing wonderful wines for all palates and budgets. His passion for wine is boundless:


"It is so rewarding to meet and develop relationships with truly original growers and winemakers, to witness and taste the results of their obsessive commitment to the traditional ways of creating great wines. For every bottle, there's a personal story of the men and women creating these exceptional wines."



The Lime Gallery



The soft northern light floods into The Lime Gallery, creating the perfect environment to discover a sophisticated edit of the best makers in the flourishing British art, design and crafts scene. Heather & team have a clear vision:


"We're all about inspiration: art to capture your imagination, beautiful things for you and your home, and a range of desirable books. Whether it's a treat, a present or a lifetime investment, you'll be spoilt for choice at the gallery."


Six solo exhibitions a year, and a stable of regulars, focus on British landscape, still life and wildlife art.  Favourites include Andrea Hunter, Pam Grimmond, Kate Bentley, Hester Cox, and Ross Brown.  There's always a wide selection of limited edition and original prints. The design stable includes ceramicists and glassmakers (like Sue Ure & Ali Tomlin),  jewellers, silver, and handmade stationery.   Covetable Wallace#Sewell scarves, Fanny Shorter's bright prints, Tessuti silks,  and handmade leather bags from Harriet Sanders make up a distinctive fashion offer.
