We arrived at the cottage, it was already lovely and warm with lots of welcoming touches for us. The house is really beautifully furnished and very comfortable. Lovely bathroom with good strong shower and bath, plenty of hot water. The bedrooms have very comfortable beds. The kitchen is fully equipped. All 3 local pubs do food (and fantastic local beers) are only yards away. There is a deli which does beautiful food, especially the cakes!! Fantastic walks from the doorstep. The cottage has 2 lovely patios . The whole experience was very relaxing, such a lovely peaceful village, beautiful views, perfect!!

Area Information

The small Wensleydale village of Askrigg is an idyllic location to enjoy a self-catering break. The sights of the Yorkshire Dales National Park surround you, with the bustling market towns of Hawes, Leyburn and Northallerton being just a short drive away where you'll find lovely independent shops, cafes and restaurants. The village is famous for being the setting of fictional Darrowby in tv's All Creatures Great and Small, though in the 18th century was hive of industry when it became a centre for the textiles and knitting trade. It is also thought that Mary Queen of Scots was imprisioned in Askrigg's Nappa Hall before being moved further down the dale to Castle Bolton. Today in the village you'll find three pubs, The Crown Inn (which dates back to 1850), The White Rose Hotel and the Kings Arms. The village also is home to some great tea rooms such as Humble Pie Fawcett & Guy and The Corn Mill Tea Room, a village bakery with a delicatessen, a village store and newsagents.
