The Platelayers
R&B’s Tuck Shop


The tuck shop is open to visitors to both Hudson and Stephenson cottage, where you can purchase a range of essential toiletries, drinks, snacks and disposable BBQs.


Bags of bird nuts are also available.


We offer Yorkshire produce, including Trillos ice-cream made in Whitby… all payable on a honesty basis. A price list is displayed on the wall in the tuck shop with an honesty box on the counter top.


If you are wondering what the R&B stands for in the title – ‘R&B’s Tuck Shop – Its the initials of the owners, children, Rosy and Bobby.

Log Burning Stoves


The cottages both benefit from oil fired central heating throughout and each cottage has a log burning stove in the lounge for chilly evenings.


A supply of logs is provided for you on arrival.
