The local area guide to living in Bedale

Nestled in the heart of Yorkshire’s scenic dales is the rural market town of Bedale. Surrounded for miles by some of the most idyllic views North Yorkshire has to offer, the small town, with its winding heritage trails and 18th Century Georgian style buildings, could easily be straight off of a postcard.

Information about the local residents

Bedale’s combination of picturesque views and history means the town is particularly popular among those wishing to retire to the country. Indeed, a large chunk of Bedale’s population are homeowners aged 65 and above. Having said that, the town itself is also perfect for those wishing to raise a family; the country setting means that an abundance of space is on offer and that there are many properties conveniently situated in the centre of town alongside the local schools. Whilst the outskirts of Bedale are primarily populated by retirees, many younger couples with children can be found nearer the centre, meaning the town offers a diverse community to get involved with.

Nearby schools

The main primary school can be located in the heart of Bedale; within walking distance for anyone living in or around the town. The school itself is smaller than the average primary school, with just 65 reported students, however in a recent survey it was reported that parents felt their children were getting extra attention and support as a result of the small class sizes.

The local grammar school boasts an impressive reputation; with the GCSE A*-C pass rate at 95%, and the A-Level A*-E pass rate at 100%. What’s more, the Ofsted examiners have awarded the school itself a top rating of 1, thus garnering it the rating of ‘Outstanding’. Recent surveys in the area have shown that the community places heavy emphasis on the importance of the welfare of young people and their education, and as a result, the community offers regular fundraisers in order to benefit the fairly small schools dotted around the area.

Getting around

For such a small town, Bedale’s bus links are fairly extensive. Offering up to 20 services which extend to the nearby villages of Ripon, Masham and Leyburn, one can easily catch one of the frequent services to the neighbouring towns, in which can be found extensive services for anyone wishing to travel further. The town also has a train station on the Wensleydale Railway: 22 miles of restored heritage line which offer transport to Leeming Bar. The historic line offers the chance to marvel at the sheer beauty of the dales whilst in the comfort of an authentic steam train; an inexpensive and enjoyable day out for all ages.

For further rail services elsewhere, the closest station is located in Northallerton, less than 10 miles away. The local council have stated they are in the process of expanding the train links to Bedale, however, there is no estimated completion date for this just yet. For this reason, the town is generally populated by those who are retired or working nearby.

Local shops

Aside from the various tourist attractions, the town offers a lively marketplace in which local goods can be found. The town consists of a bakery and butchers, as well as various cafes and organic farm shops, offering an authentic taste of country life for those interested in experiencing it. There are also several pubs and quaint tea rooms with high reviews from the locals. One worth mentioning is the Farmhouse Bakery which can be located in the marketplace, in which the menu is locally grown or sourced. Several pubs can be found dotted around the town; all of which stock locally brewed beers. Other services include a post office, dental surgery, several salons and the town recently became host to free Wi-Fi in the town centre; showing that whilst the history is preserved, the town can also cater to those who are accustomed to a more contemporary style of living.
