The Yurt also has a wood burning stove which is ideal to cosy up in front of after a day out exploring all that the Yorkshire Dales has to offer. You also have your own private wet room.

The site is a wonderfully secluded spot tucked away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, yet a short distance from the local pubs, restaurants and tea rooms in this popular Upper Wensleydale town. There are acres of space to explore and roam free and you may be lucky to catch a glimpse of the visiting wildlife such as oystercatchers, curlews, and the visiting red partridge that has taken up residence on the owner’s wall.  The popular market town of Hawes can be reached via a footpath from the cottage.

Such a fantastic stay at the yurts. This is the second time we have been and it was just brilliant. Although the weather outside was cold and and bleak the yurt was so cosy and warm! We loved having the log burner going. The yurts even have wifi. It is the perfect place to get together with a group of friends. The view in the morning was stunning and we didn't have to move an inch as breakfast was delivered to the door. Thanks for having us.

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 imprisoned 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 a village bakery with a delicatessen and coffee shop. Askrigg also has a village store and newsagents.
