“Great Holiday Cottage in Stunning Countryside”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We were impressed by the quality, comfort and cleanliness of everything the cottage. The value for money and its handy spot a few moments from the high street and pubs in the middle of Askrigg.

I would recommend everyone to stay here, as it has everything one wants; also as the manager woman, who lives at the end of the same cul-de-sac, was friendly and was willing to help with any issues

Details of the property:-

Easy to find and get into, as a key was in box outside front door and manager had told me the code.

Reliable Wi-Fi connection throughout.

Downstairs:-

The cottage has a kitchen with all necessary kit, inc' big fridge + freezer, elec. hob. It's easily big enough for 2 to cook in at once.

Square, big enough entrance hall is big enough for 2-3 people to remove their shoes at once.

“Terrific home in middle of Askrigg; only drawback is tricky parking”

I stayed recently at this marvellously comfy, well-appointed and pleasingly surprisingly spacious, old stone cottage - 2x double bedrooms.

I was highly impressed by the quality and comfort of everything, the value for money and its handy spot a few moments from the high street and pubs in the middle of Askrigg.

I would recommend everyone to stay here, as it has everything one wants; also as the manager woman, who lives at the end of the same cul-de-sac, was friendly and called by twice to check whether everything was fine.

Details of the property:-

Easy to find and get into, as a key was in box outside front door and manager had told me the code.

Reliable Wi-Fi connection throughout.

Downstairs:-

The cottage has a kitchen with all necessary kit, inc' big fridge + freezer, elec. hob. It's easily big enough for 2 to cook in at once.

Square, big enough entrance hall is big enough for 2-3 people to remove muddy boots, after walking on hills, and lots of coat hooks, a box for walking sticks and several shelved-cabinet to store boots.

This goes into a very cosy, big, comfy lounge - much bigger than expected from small-ish front of cottage.

The lounge has a really lovely, plush, homely feel - thanks to deep carpets, 2x 2 seater sofas, nice old furniture + pictures, + esp'y thanks to the very effective wood burner, (logs available in back yard 24/7 for only a few quid).

TV on wall is good, although its on-screen channel guide and prog' info' are very small - far too small to read from the sofas, unless you have perfect vision, I'd expect.

That was annoying and I had to move closer to read it often. So, I strongly recommend installing a bigger TV and better on-screen info's.

Lots of natural light thru 2 big windows in each outside corner.

Decent round dining table in corner, big enough for 3 people, maybe 4.

Some interesting books on Dales life + an excellent folder full of local maps + info + stories + guides.

Upstairs:-

Staircase goes up from lounge and the cottage seems to get even much more surprisingly spacious - as there's a decent landing and doors on BOTH sides.

As there is a very cosy, also big double bedroom on left above lounge, with lots of built-in wardrobes + chest of drawers, + 2 bed-side tables. This has big, low windows, looking up the lane and onto other cottages; you can also just about see the hills above Askrigg.

Plus on the right: a big family bathroom - with proper bath and shower + glass shower-screen and sky-light - so you can almost see the stars from the bath!

Next to this, also off the landing to the right, is another double bedroom - big, too, but much more rectangular. So, there's a big space inside the door w/ chest of drawers, tall mirror, + window with beautiful far, wide views of the Wensleydale hills.

The double bed is at the far end of this 2nd bedroom, under the eaves. The best surprise of this Tardis is an en-suite shower + toilet off this 2nd bedroom!

(Well, not a surprise to you readers now, but, still very handy - as its sky-light).

How are these bathrooms and 2nd double bedroom fitted into what was a small cottage originally? As they are built very usefully over the two car-ports for this and next door cottage.

Car port:-

This car-port parking is the only hassle of this cottage, as it is via a right-angle off the narrow and twisting lane.

One can drive into it, but if misjudged even a bit, could scrape car along the stone walls.

It's not impossible and with a lot of adjusting, one can get in and out. So, the parking is only really a minor drawback; esp'y as it's much easier and fine to park in the high street's many spaces around the church and lanes, if one can't manage the car port.

Conclusion:-

Overall this cottage is 9/10, as it's as excellent as any can be and nothing can be perfect.

It also has a decent, small-ish, rear courtyard to sit in the sunshine; but no lawn or garden, if you want that.

Location:-

You can walk to Askrigg's 3 pubs in a minute, and a local fish & chip van served me some terrifically delicious dinner at a very good price on one evening, too.

Askrigg Kitchen - café and make super ready meals to cook at home, is just around the corner and a tremendous place to indulge in huge breakfasts, with friendly women and local artists for sale.

So, if you want to stay in or near Askrigg in your own home, this is the best choice I've found in upper end of Wensleydale - and it's much cosier, better V.F.M. than many local B&Bs and hotels.

Very well done and I hope to stay with you again in the summer.
