Share our passion

Staff and volunteers will manage our new one-way system where a maximum of three visitors will be allowed in the shop at one time. Contactless payments are preferred.

Our stunning landscapes inspire creativity, and we have gathered together a range of gifts that express this shared local passion for our beautiful countryside. The selection of locally inspired merchandise includes paintings, prints, ceramics and jewellery, as well as locally produced beers, spirits and food to take away with you.

We also stock clothing, maps and guidebooks that will help you explore the area and discover the very best our region has to offer, in fact, more than 80% of our suppliers are local with more than a third from within the National Park and Hadrian’s Wall area.
