Shepherds Hall was built in 1873 and was a meeting place for the Loyal Order of Ancient Shepherds. It is now a fabulous tea rooms, craft gallery and has a lovely tea garden along with ample free parking. A lovely relaxed atmosphere, home baking and food prepared using local produce where possible make this a must to visit. Our craft gallery has unique items and gifts, many of them Fair Trade or British made, along with vintage china for sale.Lealholm is a traditional village, a popular tourist destination surrounded by beautiful heather moors crossed with miles of footpaths and bridleways. There are plenty of things to see including the stepping stones across the River Esk which are not far from Shepherds Hall.
