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.

Previous Customer,

Today was incredible! We'd just arrived at the yurt, it's been raining since we got here. It's actually quite soothing. I was straight in the hot tub with my umbrella (actually my mummy's). It was a lot bigger than I thought it would be! I love that it is so eco friendly. I've just finished a delicious lasagne

Lucy aged 9,

Huge thanks to Jo & Steve for the most amazing two night stay in this fabulous yurt. Despite the pretty rubbish weather we've stayed warm and toasty and have been wowed with the most amazing breakfasts. The hot tub at night with a glass of prosecco listening to the rain was so special. We don't want to leave but we are leaving lovely and chilled and we will be booking again.

Hannah & A,

Past Customer,

We stayed here for the weekend and loved it. The family were wonderful hosts. It was really relaxing. I loved the chickens and really liked feeding them. The food was yummy. The dogs were adorable and the ferret was fun to play with. Definitely coming again.

Previous Customer,

We have had the most amazing stay! Our first time glamping and our first time staying in a yurt! from start to finish we loved the whole experience. The peaceful location made the couple of days away even more relaxing from the hot tub to the little finishing touches within the yurt itself we couldn't fault anything. Thank you Steve & Jo for our incredible stay, the amazing food and for going above and beyond to make sure your guests are settled and helping with water and amenities. We will certainly be recommending you to everyone. Thanks again!

The bed was super comfy, the fire (even in July!) was so welcome and the hot tub is incredible, we sat out even in the rain enjoying the wildlife and sipping gin, even saw the little barn owl. The breakfasts were of such high standard we didn't need to eat until dinner time! Thanks so much we will sing your praises and recommend to all our friends.

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.
