Located in the North Yorkshire Dales, the Little Chocolate Shop prides itself in working closely with the tight-knit community by sourcing most of its produce locally; with the notable exception of chocolate itself, which is imported from Belgium. The small factory is open to the public to the enjoyment of visitors who can, therefore, watch the chocolatiers and local craftspeople temper, mold, fill, and decorate fine chocolates by hand without any sort of admission fee and ask as many questions as they want about the process of making chocolate. There is also a café on-site, where chocolate lovers can indulge and talk all things gluttony over a warm cuppa, as well as a large shop.
The Little Chocolate Shop is located on Badger Crescent in Leyburn, North Yorkshire. It can be reached by car in one hour from York via roads A59, A1, and A684. It can also be reached by public transit, taking the train to Northallerton and then the 856 bus to Gayle, stopping at Middleham Road. The shop is open every day of the week from 9 am to 5 pm, as well as from 10 am to 4 pm on Saturdays.
