At Gorgeous Cottages we love celebrating our favourite things about Yorkshire including some brilliant Yorkshire businesses. The Little Yorkshire Candle Company is just such a small Yorkshire business and we think they deserve to be shouted about.
Luxury hand-poured candles
They produce an exquisite range of hand-poured candles which are are all inspired by Yorkshire nature. Not only do the candles smell divine but they also happen to look amazing! All the candles are made with essential oils and pure plant extracts and come complete with beautiful copper lid.
You’ll find the candles in a selection of stores throughout Yorkshire ranging from Jervaulx Abbey Tearooms to Fenwicks of York.
Meet the founder – Alex Hall
We spoke to founder Alex Hall about some of her favourite places to visit in Yorkshire:
“When I was younger I always dreamed of having a shop in somewhere like Piece Hall in Halifax . It’s still one of my most favourite places to visit and I am lucky enough to have my candles stocked in the lovely gingerbread Interiors there.
My favourite small town though has to be Malton as it has such a great vibe at the moment . It’s a stones throw from York but just a short trip to the coast and has a fantastic local retail and food community. Luckily I always have an excuse to visit when my stockist Kemp’s of Malton need their supplies restocking.
I also love the Yorkshire Wolds as there is such a contrast between the coastal and rural landscapes there. My heart really belongs to York though as it has the artisan vibe that I love. The choice of eateries, shopping, theatre and culture there ticks all the boxes for me .”
