Thank you for a very relaxing Christmas break! the cottage and farm is absolutely beautiful and a real peaceful haven to unwind in. Ted (dog) has loved running free in the fields and warming up next to the very cosy log fire.
To Jo & Steve. We really enjoyed our week here at West Shaw Cote Cottage. The brownies on arrival tasted absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for making us settle in very quickly, the dog also loved it he went running through the fields like a shooting star. Thank you again for our lovely stay. The pizza on Thursday was lovely, the dog loved the crusts! Loved it here so much would recommend it to family members and will definitely be returning.

Thank you for such a warm welcome - wine, brownies, eggs. Superb cottage with great views.We love Tiny, the ferret and the pair of barn owls who visit every evening. The view over to Wether Fell is magnificent, we have watched the weather come and go all week. Such a great position to explore the Dales. One week, wonderful cottage, brilliant countryside, all seasons on each day!

We had a lovely 2 week holiday here, a beautiful part of England. Great cottage with all the necessary equipment.
Great property in great location. One of the best equipped cottages we have ever used. Very friendly and helpful owners.
Great cottage - well equipped and very comfortable. Also great location in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales. We have had a very relaxing week with lots of sunshine and plan to return at some stage when the waterfalls have a little more water. thank you for a warm welcome and very tasty chocolate brownies.
This cottage has hugged us during our stay. We have enjoyed our stay immensely. Steve, Jo and Tiny have been around but not too intrusive. This cottage has been beautifully appointed, beds very comfortable as is the bathroom. the kitchen has everything you need too!
We have enjoyed every minute of our stay in your beautiful cottage. (we are very envious of you!) Beautiful area. Thank you
Thank you for a lovely stay, the cottage is brilliant. thank you for the welcome pack, Digby certainly enjoyed his treats. well situated for access to a lot of places.
Many thanks for an enjoyable stay here. The human and canine treats were much appreciated and a kind thought. We love the area and have had many good walks.
Thank you so much for a lovely stay here in this delightful house - all you could ever need is here and put together so well. Jo & Steve are wonderful hosts - extremely helpful and just lovely people. we hope to return.
A superb cottage with wonderful views. Steve and Jo were so helpful and friendly, all of which have been an essential part of a most relaxing and enjoyable week. Even the chickens were friendly!
A wonderful snowy week. arrived with a green view and woke up to a white view. Did lots of lovely walks. The pubs were great and the local beer. Snoopy loved the dog treats. the cottage is lovely, very comfortable. we had a fantastic time, very restful.
Our second stay and it was every bit as comfortable and relaxing as we had hoped for. Great cottage in a great location. I am sure we will be back.
Thank you for such a warm welcome to your lovely cottage. Dog loved the liver treats and husband loved the shortbread! (and I loved watching the girls collecting their own breakfast eggs) We have had a wonderful, restful few days and we hope to be back to see the view in another season. many thanks
What a find! Fantastic place. Home from home. We did the Hawes circular walk in the snow. It was amazing. After that we were definately ready for a lovely meal (pie week) at the Green Dragon. We spent three days and could have stayed longer - so much to see and do even in the depths of Winter. Thank you Jo and Steve
Will definitely come again!
We had a very nice stay and the cottage was very good. The cooking equipment was excellent, it was so nice to cook using good quality equipment, so many times this particular area lets holiday cottages down. Well done to the owners.
What a fantastic week we have had! such a beautiful and cosy cottage, everything we could have hoped for and more. particularity enjoyed waking up to bunnies in the field :-) We have enjoyed a few gentle strolls and some hikes up the three peaks. A visit to the fall and of course the creamery. This has been the perfect relaxing week away, with so much to see and do but also the perfect base for a chilled out evening by the fire with some wine and cheese. Will definitely come again!! Thank you
It was an amazing property and I would certainly return there. The view from the cottage was stunning and it would have been very easy to have stayed there watching it change as the weather did, but then I would have missed some of the wonderful places in the area. A real gem.
What a wonderful place !! Quiet, beautiful views and no passing traffic (apart from the occasional walker) - it would have been so easy to spend all my time here watching the view change as the weather did, however, i did venture out, to Hawes on more than one occasion - excellent butcher -though mainly by car (I did walk once) to Hardraw Force which were spectacular, to Aysgill Waterfall - a lovely walk from Gayle (thank you to Jo & Steve for telling me about it) to Semerwater where the car park was park of the lake !! Further afield to Aysgarth for more spectacular falls and Castle Bolton. i'm sure I've missed many places, but i have enjoyed "wandering" doing some walking, watching birds, (especially migrating house martins and swallows reminding me that summer's over), discovering wild flowers still hanging on (harebell on the bank alongside the track) and a delightful small nature reserve about a mile or so this side of Carperby (beyond Askrigg on the way to Castle Bolton) with all sorts of interesting plants. As to be expected in the Dale's the weather has been mixed, though on balance during the day I have enjoyed more sun than rain. A wonderful relaxing week in a very comfortable and well equipped cottage (my "cottage knife" didn't even come out ~ a real bonus to have knives that are sharp) Thank you
Dear everyone who stays here, it was a pleasure to stay here, we had a wonderful time seeing all the places. I would love to come back again, we had a good nights sleep and good WiFi and we loved exploring all of the different towns. My dogs had a wonderful time playing around in the fields.
Beautiful location with breathtaking views. The hosts are very warm and friendly. We enjoyed our stay immensely. The accommodation was superb, very spacious, comfortable with modern decor and lots of charm. Can't wait to come back and we are very much looking forward to our next vis
We have had a wonderful week here. You have everything you could possibly need in the cottage. Jo and Steve are wonderful hosts, they have lots of information on places to visit. We hiked one of the three peaks, even our 12 year old was fine and the dog was like a mountain goat. The Ingleton falls were beautiful, Malham village has a lovely cafe, Malham Tarn is a lovely walk around the lake. The kids and dog all played in the river just a 15 minute walk from here. Hawes White Heart pub was fantastic and lovely people. We also liked the Wensleydale Heifer. Huge amazing fish and chips and a lovely place with great atmosphere. Loved our time here.
What a fabulous cottage. So much lovely attention to detail- thoughtful and really special. Thank you for the holiday info and thank you for a lovely holiday (we will miss the animals). We recommend The White Hart Country Inn at Hawes, Stone House Hotel, Brimham Rocks, Wensleydale Creamery, Malham Cove and the Hawes market on a Tuesday. We loved the hot tub too!
Great week in our favourite part of the world.
Recommend Kearton tea rooms in Thwaite for coeliacs! ( great gluten free ) lovely walk to our favourite spot
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.
