Property code: OC-DS902

A true home-away-from-home buried deep in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this delightful two-bedroom corner cottage makes an excellent base for a scenic walking holiday with friends or loved ones. It’s in Askrigg, a sweet village with a cobbled main square and lovely pub within 200 metres of your front door. Visit popular local sites like the multi-tiered Aysgarth Falls (5 miles), followed by a homecooked meal in the comfort of your holiday dwelling.

Enter the stone building and leave your coats in the porch before stepping into the cosy lounge. Here you can spark up the wood burner, housed within a raw brick fireplace, then sink into the sofa, perhaps reading quietly or popping something on the TV for entertainment. The well-equipped kitchen-diner has an appealing green theme and is great for cooking and eating yummy meals using local produce you’ve picked up at Hawes market (5.5 miles, Tuesdays). Upstairs, two beautifully decorated double bedrooms and a bathroom complete the inside space. In fine weather, make the most of the outdoor space, which is furnished with a table and chairs plus a bench so you can dine alfresco.

There are plenty of wonderful trails leading from your front door, following the River Ure or heading up to Buttertubs, home to 20-metre-deep limestone potholes and fantastic views. The market town of Hawes (5.5 miles) has plenty to offer the curious traveller, with its countryside museum and Wensleydale Creamery selling award-winning cheeses. History aficionados will be eager to check out the 14th-century Castle Bolton (7 miles) and Grinton smelt mill (11.5 miles).

  • 2 double bedrooms
  • 1 bathroom with shower over the bath and WC

We had a brilliant holiday in The Shippon, but this was made most special by the landscape of Wensleydale and Swaledale. Although we are in our late 70s, we did several long walks (5 miles x 3) and lots of other exploring as well - favourites - walking up the Swale in Muker meadows, driving over the moors to Swaledale and stopping at the top for a Read morepicnic lunch! We are not bird experts, but were thrilled with how many moorland birds we saw on those two drives over to Swaledale. We loved all the spring wild flowers too - so many primrose banks and the first openings of the bluebell woods. Other highlights - Aysgarth Falls, Asghill force, Castle Bolton, cheese demonstration in Hawes. Enjoyed dinner out at The Kings Arms, AAskrigg ad Wensleydale Heifer in West Witton. Hide

This cottage was presented to a very high standard and we were immediately very comfortable. The location was ideal and quietly located for the delightful village and for cycling aroung the Yorkshire Dales. Also the nice welcoming pack including refreshments and milk was most appreciated. The owners provided ample fuel for the woodburner which happRead moreily wasn't required! The shed was just right for bicycle storage. We definitely plan to return when we can. Hide

We love Askrigg and visit regularly to meet our friends who live here. Enjoyed staying in the Shippon which suited all our needs. Bolton Castle is well worth a visit and the lovely walks and views are worth the hard climbs.

Lots of walks in the area - Mill Gil, Addlebrough, Cat Leap Falls. Visited Bolton Castle. Still good bird watching despite being late in the season - saw Kestrel, Buzzard, Gold Crest, Red Grouse, and meadow pipits were our highlights. The stars were amazing on a clear night too!
