Northallerton and Bedale


Northallerton is an extremely safe place to live. The communities really care and everyone seems to look after each other here.

The town is vibrant and modern, but classic with some lovely coffee shops and locally run businesses. A 15-minute drive from here can take you in to the beauty of the North York Moors.

Northallerton town centre is also home to North Yorkshire Police’s headquarters, Alverton Court, which has a meeting room that can be booked by community groups and a public coffee shop.
