Lovely cosy cottage in a great location for visiting the surrounding area.
It was lovely to finally get our Easter holiday in this gorgeous cottage. The cottage was very comfortable.
A lovely cosy cottage in a great location for exploring the Dales. Some lovely walks on the doorstep. Wensleydale Creamery and Forbidden Corner great for kids. Food at the Crown and Kings Arms fab!
Perfect cottage for a weekend of walking and making memories. Amazing food and local beers at the Kings Arms, we felt very welcome. A perfect home from home.
We spent a wonderful few days at Thornsgill Cottage last week. It was such a cosy, relaxing ‘home from home’, with all that we needed for a great stay. We were also impressed by how clean and tidy it was on arrival. The cottage was very dog-friendly, with great walks literally just on the doorstep. There was also a lockable garage for bikes and a utility room for drying clothes after a walk. The cottage was very well located in the beautiful village of Askrigg. We were within easy walking distance (only a few minutes) of a well-stocked village shop, the BakeWell cafe (which sold delicious cakes, pies and also easy suppers to cook at home too) and three great pubs. Dinner at the King’s Arms was a particular highlight, with roast lamb from a farm just down the road and a host of other locally sourced ingredients. All in all, a fabulous stay. We’ll be back!
It is a perfect cottage, located in a glorious part of the world.
lovely cottage comfortable and clean . Great locations and in the middle of the Dales. The three eating locations in the village are all very good
Lovely cottage. Had a really eventful and full holiday. Beautiful area and much to do. Can highly recommend Humble Pie and the fish and chip van (6.30pm Wednesday). Had an exceptional meal at The Wensleydale Heifer.
Beautiful cottage, a very enjoyable stay. Lots of great walks in the hills followed by some even greater beer.
Lovely, comfortable and clean cottage with very well equipped kitchen. Great location with easy access to local pubs. Great local walks straight from the cottage. Superb access to the Dales for walking and touring. A very nice stay. Many thanks we enjoyed it very much.
No faults whatsoever, everything perfect. So many pretty villages and delightful people to chat to
Loved our trip to this great cottage in Askrigg. Very comfortable and fully equipped with all you need and in a wonderful spot in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. Fab pub, The Kings Arms, in the village and stunning walks all around. Rolling hills and beautiful waterfalls, Aysgarth Falls and Castle Bolton near by. We even had the most wonderful weather at Easter. Would highly recommend. Family Holmes - Easter 2015
We have stayed at Thornsgill Cottage many times and our stay is never long enough. The cottage itself is warm, cosy and comfortable, ideal for us to return to with the dogs after a long day out walking in the spectacular scenery of the Yorkshire Dales. The lock up garage enables us to store our bikes safely so that we can enjoy cycling too. The village of Askrigg is friendly and has everything we’ve needed - a shop, a cake shop - and several great pubs of course. We will definitely be back!
We stayed as 2 families and a dog at Thornsgill Cottage for Easter and had the most wonderful and cosy time, walking, chilling and entertaining ourselves in the close-by pubs of Askrigg. The cottage itself is perfectly equipped with everything you could wish for in a Yorkshire retreat. It’s warm, loads of hot water, an awesome real fire and very comfortable bedrooms - You really can kick back and switch off here. We did some fantastic walking by the river or up on the hills, with great pubs in nearby villages to use as destinations or fuel stops Fantastic stay, we’ll be back there in a heartbeat.
I have been a repeat visitor to the gorgeous Thornsgill Cottage. The log burner makes it cosy in winter, just perfect for retreating to a comfy sofa with a large glass of wine after a long walk in the hills. It has everything you need if you want to cook but frankly it would be a shame to miss out on the wonderful local pubs which are only a hop, skip and a jump away. It’s also been brilliant to be able to bring my dog to the cottage - the only downside to this is you then have absolutely no excuse not get get up and get out onto the hills - a hard prospect to contemplate when tucked up all snug in one of the extremely comfortable beds.
A fantastic cottage. Was very cosy and had everything we could possibly need. Food in The Crown was delicious.
The small Wensleydale village of Askrigg is an idyllic location to enjoy a self catering break. The outstanding beauty of the Yorkshire Dales National Park surrounds you, allowing you to walk or cycle the area in any direction, with the bustling market towns of Hawes, Leyburn and Northallerton being just a short drive away where you will 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 Askrigg was a 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 will find three pubs, The Crown Inn (which dates back to 1850), The White Rose Hotel and the Kings Arms. The village is also home to some great tea rooms such as Humble Pie - a village bakery with a delicatessen, coffee shop and also serves take away meals. Askrigg also has a village store and newsagents.
