We had a great break here. Location is spot on for walking and visiting the Dale. Village is excellent for eating out and as ever in the Dales everyone is friendly and helpful. Note that one of the bedrooms has a low roof and can be awkward if you are over 6 foot tall. As regards car parking we parked...

Stayed here for a long weekend with other family members staying next door in Old Mill 2. Lovely cottage, equipped with everything you could need - and more! Comfortable, spotlessly clean and in a great location, just a few steps from shop, church and pubs. Small enclosed courtyard with outdoor furniture. Good walks straight from the door and footpath up...

So glad that you enjoyed your stay. WE agree there are some lovely walks from the door step and the village amenities are excellent.

About the neighbourhood
Throughout the year, our beautiful home in Askrigg, North Yorkshire offers you the opportunity to spend time at the heart of one of England's most magnificent landscapes.

The cottage is located in the heart of upper Wensleydale in the picturesque village of Askrigg. In the 1970s this was the location for the village of Darrowby, which was the backdrop for the popular series, 'All Creatures Great and Small'. The Old Mill cottages are tucked away in a quiet lane just off the main street, and are a stone's throw from local amenities, including a general store, three public houses (all offering food) and the Village Kitchen, which provides home cooked takeaway meals, packed lunches, freshly baked bread, cakes, pies and much more.

Footpaths and rural walks are easily acce...
