Sunnybanks does what it says on the tin and is a beautiful cottage in a sunny, south facing position in the village of Askrigg, overlooking the village and with glorious views to the hill of Addleborough across Wensleydale. It is a traditional longhouse which means that you have a view from every window. Sunnybanks has everything that you need for modern living but is still a true stone-built Dale’s cottage, with rooms on different levels, beamed ceilings, plank doors, deepset windows and two fireplaces to keep you cosy on cooler nights.
Downstairs there is a shaker style kitchen, a living room with easy chairs, dining table and multifuel stove and a separate lounge with two comfy sofas and a further multifuel stove. Upstairs there is a very spacious master bedroom with super king-size bed, a large single bedroom, a house shower room with walk in shower, and a mini-suite with an en-suite bathroom with bath with shower over and a king-sized bedroom. Wifi broadband and satellite TV are also provided.
Sunnybanks has a calm and restful atmosphere, decorated with Laura Ashley fabrics and Farrow and Ball traditional paint colours. You can enjoy the fabulous views from either inside or outside the cottage and the south facing garden catches the sun for much of the day.
The holiday cottage is away from the village centre but still only a few minutes’ walk from the pubs, tearooms, village shop and deli. It has a garden with lawn and flower beds and a small barn next to the cottage that can be used for wet gear and bike storage. Askrigg itself is a thriving village in Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is an ideal centre for touring the area, with walks from the door in abundance.

Lovely week in this spotless cottage, second visit here and it is gorgeous! So well equipped and clean, everything you would want in a holiday home. Lovely sunny garden, the weather was windy at times but we managed. Lots of lovely walks. The food at The Crown was brilliant. We will definitely be back here. Thank you!
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.
