Our story


The Stripey Badger is currently closed in line with Government Regulations.  The Coffee Shop & Kitchen is not currently offering a takeaway service and the bookshop is not currently operating a 'click & collect' service.  We are sorry about this but feel that it is the right thing to do given the number of covid cases in our small village.  Our online shop is however OPEN so please do support us by buying online.  Stay safe and we will see you all soon, we are sure.

The Stripey Badger Bookshop, Coffee Shop and Kitchen is located in the beautiful village of Grassington, in the Yorkshire Dales.  The filming of All CreatuJames Patterson awardres Great & Small set Grassington as 'Darrowby' with the bookshop featuring as grocers G F Endleby, and the coffee shop & kitchen being transformed into a private house, behind whose doors the actors and crew assembled in between takes.

Surrounded by wonderful National Park countryside, the Stripey Badger is the perfect place to experience Yorkshire hospitality at its best.

Sister businesses, the Stripey Badger Coffee Shop & Kitchen is run by Jackie, who prides herself on home baking and on showcasing Yorkshire treats.  Try the Stripey Badger breakfast, scones or tea loaf to see what we mean!

The independent Stripey Badger Bookshop next door is run by Linda, who has had a lifetime ambition to run a bookshop. Supported by son James, the bookshop stocks titles of all genres for adults and children, as well as book-related gifts and cards, and Yorkshire maps and guide books for the visitor.

In our first year, 2018, we were fortunate to win two awards; James was a recipient of the James Patterson Young Booksellers Award and the Stripey Badger won Best Shop/Retailer in the Stray FM Skipton & Beyond Awards.
