Cottage Review:  

Cottage cold, and kitchen floor an absolute eye sore, open fire is if no use whatsoever as only provided us with one small bag of coal,and about 8 sticks of kindling.We stayed for 4 nights ,so only had a fire for one night.Wasnt explained to us just how difficult cottage is to find, have to negotiate through a very thin stile with bags ,and a large dog, grass at front of cottage a public walkway so muddy, and dirty. No parking ..Worst thing for us though was building work going on next door constantly, loud banging, workman's radio blaring, and we were not notified of this,scaffolding up at front and back of building. Was meant to be a much needed, quiet break , Complete waste of money, and time off work. Contacted owner, and Sykes, but no help whatsoever,told us to record the noise from workmen, joke)

Nice location and a lovely village. Couple of small issues. Outside light would be useful as path is very dark with restricted access to church yard path. Cottage without the open fire would be fairly cold, this fire takes a lot of fuel(non provided). Wood burning stove would be far more efficient, warmer and cheaper to run

Cottage Review:  

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here with lovely walks for my wife and I to take the dog on and a well equipped cottage. The owner was helpful and friendly when we asked if we could have a barbeque with friends given the social distancing issues at the moment.

I am fit and able and taking bags to and from the car about 150 yards away and through a narrow stone gate was not an issue but it could be for some.

If there was a hook for the hand held shower attachment to allow you to stand up with a shower curtain it would be good.

Would I book this again now I have stayed here, YES, I would.

Cottage Review:  

Stated here for a week recently. The cottage has been refurbished nicely and sympathetically with its age. It is well equiped. However as a previous review has stated it does have negative points too. The distance from parking (whilst not vast) and the tricky access with luggage and belongings is a pain. Definitely not one for anyone with mobility issues. The path directly outside the cottages has become covered in grass would be difficult to avoid taking in wet/mud in bad weather. Would benefit from a new outside door mat as it is very worn. There is no carpet or rugs downstairs. From photos there obviously used to be, presume it was removed as damaged, but stone floor is cold and would be slippy if gets wet. Does need at least a rug. Coal fire is nice and needed as cottage gets quite chilly due to no double glazing and there are gaps in the door panels that the wind whistles through. I think it would get cold in winter. Be aware there is a bath with a hand held shower only. Makes hair washing difficult and again no good for mobility problems. Lots of hot water though. Cottage very small so make sure you don't want lots of personal space! Stairs are very steep. Also missed not having a bit of garden to sit out in for a cuppa. Amazing views from windows at the front though.

Cottage Review:  

The cottage although more than adaquate in terms of equipment has certain down sides. It is reached via a very narrow ginnel over the churchyard and it is quite a feat to get luggage in. You can go the long way via the road and back entrance but there is no parking at this point and you are not told this entrance exists until you work it out after you have struggled. The stairs are very narrow and steep so not for anyone with any mobility issues. There is a very narrow bathroom with on shower.

The biggest issue with this cottage is lack of parking. We found church parking full most days whatever time we returned, likewise when we arrived. Nearest car park is half a mile uphill at the other end of the village. Village centre crammed with cars especially on weekends.

Cottage Review:  

We have just returned from a weeks holiday in Askrigg staying at Lavender cottage. The cottage is well maintained to a high standard with everything you need with stunning views over the Dales. The fire is a great feature with a complimentary bag of coal and kindle provided. The bed is comfortable which after a day of walking is just what you need. The only thing I would have liked is a shower rather than bath but it was not a major issue. I would highly recommend this cottage.

Cottage Review:  

This cottage is ideally placed for exploring Wensleydale and the surrounding areas either by car or on foot. It is just off the centre of the village of Askrigg which is a typical Dales village.

To get to the cottage, you have to walk through the church yard and go through a rather narrow gap in a wall. The cottage is the second in a block of six terraced ones. It is small - just right for a couple and a small dog. The front door opens straight into the living room with a small kitchen/dining area at the back. Upstairs is a double bedroom and a small b

Cottage Review:  

This cottage had everything needed for our week in Wensleydale. With it not being on the roadside, it certainly provided a very quiet night's sleep with no traffic noise. A few villagers using the footpath past the door during the evening also no problem. There is no dedicated car parking but we soon got used to finding a space at the right time outside the church. So a perfectly adequate accommodation with no complaints from us. Thanks.

A wonderful little cottage, very clean, well equipped with a lovely comfortable bed.The village has 3 pubs a village shop and a deli which sells home made take a way meals. The locals make you feel very welcome. Askrigg is a gateway to many scenic walks and drives and within easy reach of the Lakes.
