This is a cosy stone-built character cottage which is centrally located in the popular village of Askrigg in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The Shippon in Askrigg is ideal at any time of the year with a pretty cottage garden for the summer and a log burner for the chilly winter nights. Sleeping up to four people in two bedrooms this is perfect for couples, friends and families, a home away from home looking to holiday together in this Dales village.
This popular Dales village with its ancient market cross, notable church and cobbled central square was once home to the fictional surgery of Dales vet James Herriot, whilst the Kings Arms became the setting for the Drover’s Arms. There are many footpaths around the village for a short stroll or if you are looking for more of a challenge can walk further along the valley to Hawes or eastwards to Carperby, Aysgarth Falls, Castle Bolton and Redmire. Askrigg has excellent places to eat including two pubs, a hotel, tea room, deli and fish and chip van every Wednesday. There is also a general provision shop. It is a great base for exploring all the Yorkshire Dales has to offer.

Lovely stay, thanks for the cake- we made it last all week! Enjoyed Askrigg and it's restaurants, the local store sold gin cheaper than our supermarket. Loved the walks, the wildlife, the waterfalls and the landmarks. First time in The Yorkshire Dales but it won't be our last. Great place to stay and the parking space was essential.
We enjoyed our 2 week stay in this very clean and well appointed cottage. The cake and prosecco on arrival were much appreciated. All the local information provided including walks and maps has been very useful. We have eaten in each of the villages and the meals at the Kings Arms have been exceptional.
Well resourced and comfortable accommodation. Thank you.
Our third time in Askrigg, this cottage is the best yet. A lovely cottage which is well maintained and clean. Thank you!
Thanks for the chocolate cake. We had some nice walks (the old railway is very useful) and visited some old haunts. Enjoyable meals at The Kings Arms & The Crown. Excellent food from Humble Pie. Highlight was getting the little white bus to see the red squirrels.
Home tomorrow after a lovely week. Cottage very clean and beds comfortable. Thanks for the chocolate cake. Had a rain free week and enjoyed walking in the Dales.
Home tomorrow after a lovely week. Cottage is very clean and beds were comfortable. Thanks for the chocolate cake! We had a rain free week so enjoyed the walks and the Falls. Eating at The Wensleydale Heifer was a treat as were the prepared meals from Humble Pie.
We enjoyed our stay, wonderful cottage. Just perfect in every way. Thank you!
Really enjoyed out stay ~ beautifully equipped cottage, comfortable beds and perfectly situated in the village. Tried all the pubs and liked the Kings Arms best, the deli does delicious take away we tried the quiche and salad for supper one evening. We also had breakfast there and another favorite was Corn Mill in Bainbridge although that does not open until 9.30. Both had delicious home made scones. Other discoveries: don't miss the Wensleydale Pottery in Hawes (tucked away) great independent supermarket in Leyburn (Campbells) and Muker in Swaledale a favourite place anyway with a great tea room and art gallery, I hope we will be back
The property was brilliant. Exactly what I thought. The facilities were top quality and the location of the cottage was prefect. It all contributed to a brilliant holiday and I will be looking at booking the same place in the future. Thank you very much.
Great 2 weeks, weather absolutely perfect. Plenty of local walks. the cottage was very comfortable and well equipped. Recommend the afternoon tea at Sykes tea room, best we have ever had!
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in The Shippon In Askrigg. The welcome tray a thoughtful touch. The cottage had everything we needed and was extremely comfortable. We loved the village and would recommend the meals at The Kings Arms. We are very sad to be leaving and would love to return for another stay.
A lovely, well kitted out cottage. Thank you for the welcome tray, much appreciated. If we come back to Askrigg would love to stay here again. Ready meals from Humble Pie are lovely.
We had a lovely stay in The Shippon. Askrigg is our favourite village.
We have had such a lovely time here - The area has a special place in our hearts (my grandmother grew up in Askrigg). What a cosy and comfortable cottage! Spotlessly clean, well kitted out and ideally located. We'll definitely be back in Askrigg and The Shippon in Askrigg.
Lovely cottage, excellent location and lovely walking. Kings Arms friendly and excellent food.
Another wonderful holiday in this perfect small cottage. Stayed here many times under the previous owners and it is just as good with the new owners.
Very comfy stay. Well equipped with a lovely welcome tray of cake! Our first stay in Askrigg as we usually stay in Gayle near Hawes but we couldn't fault the accommodation. Lovely meal in The White Rose and great meat from Campbell's in Leyburn.
We had a lovely week in Askrigg- what a lovely village. Great walks from the cottage to the local waterfalls as well as to Aysgarth Falls (longer walk- 8 miles). Lovely food at The Kings Arms. We had a roast Sunday platter and pie night on Tuesday. Humble Pie cannot be missed!! Gorgeous quiche and cakes you can't resist. Thursday was the sheepdog demonstration outside Hawes. Wensleydale Creamery was very good. Lovely cottage, very comfortable and well equipped. Loved the mini dishwasher. The woodburner was great too. A good rest to recharge our batteries. Very clean. Thank you very much.
Enjoyed our long weekend in the cottage. Beds and linen lovely quality. Clean throughout. Some very nice walks from the door.
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.
