A Ryedale village has seen its store reopen.

Farndale Estate has launched a new village shop in Low Mill, Farndale.

The move follows the estate's commitment to protecting and enhancing the natural, cultural, built and economic environment.

Previously, Low Mill had been home to a village shop over 20 years ago, so the long awaited return has been most welcomed. The hamlet of Low Mill acts as a hub for the dale and is a short distance from the further hamlet of Church Houses.

Farndale Store is open seven days a week and it provides locals and tourists alike with both necessities and niceties.

Covering essentials for a daily basis: such as eggs, bread, cereals and milk. The store also boasts an alcohol license and sells local gin, wines, cider and beer.

There are tasty treats including paninis, sausage rolls and delicious Roost of Malton coffee to takeaway and enjoy. The emphasis has been on trying where possible to support local produce - the estate is even selling its own meat within the store which is farmed by a tenant on behalf of the Estate. There is both Berkshire pork and Aberdeen Angus beef available.

Laura Fieldsend, Estate Manager, said: "The store is surrounded by picturesque scenery and walks and in this idyllic summer weather, it’s the perfect ice cream pit-stop. You’ll be greeted with a warm welcome by Naomi Newton, who is the Store Manager." “The nearest all-year round shops are eight miles away.

"This new venture will save travel time and fuel for the local community. It’s also a fantastic service for visitors to the Dale - there’s all the essentials ready to cook up a delicious dinner”.

The shop is easily accessible and is situated opposite the North York Moors Car Park.
