Reviews

The cottage is so well equipped and beautifully furnished that we were able to have the relaxed honeymoon we wished for. Your chickens have put a smile on our faces everyday - pottering about the outside of the house and up on to the fields, they are lucky chickens! We would love to come back here in the future.

Dan, Stacey & Maddie,

Thank you for a wonderful stay at your cottage, you have all made us feel so welcome. Tilly loved feeding the chickens and pigs and collecting fresh eggs. The cottage is so well equipped and comfortable. a real home from home. We'd love to come back, maybe next time we will try a yurt!

Kate, Kieran and Tilly,

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.

Brook,

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

The Jones/Wiseman family,

Recommend Kearton tea rooms in Thwaite for coeliacs! ( great gluten free ) lovely walk to our favourite spot

Jean

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!

Jim & Holly

Great week in our favourite part of the world.

Area Information

Askrigg
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.
