A most charming and characterful mid 19th century stone built terraced cottage in the centre of Askrigg, and across the road from the pretty Askrigg Beck.
Burn Cottage is ideally placed to make the most of the village and its amenities. The cottage has been completely and sympathetically refurbished to make the most of its lovely original features with beams on the ceilings, deepset windows, flagged stone and oak floors, a multi fuel stove and a walled patio garden to relax in on warmer days. Burn Cottage has been carefully prepared to give you every comfort during your holiday, and a wonderful home from home to return to at any season of the year.
Askrigg sits in a beautiful position nestling below the glorious Yorkshire fells of Ellerkin Scar and the vast expanse of Askrigg Common. Its quaint village roads are lined with attractive stone cottages and houses with its 15th Century church keeping a watchful eye over the village. Steeped in history, the historic cobbled market place still proudly displays the ancient market cross.
Visitors may recognise Cringley House as ‘Skeldale House’ from the BBC TV series ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ with the Kings Arms being the ‘Drovers Arms’ from the same series. There is a good village shop which can supply all your basic needs. Askrigg also has a delicatessen in the village and milk, cream and eggs can be bought from the local farm. There is a newsagents and three pubx. The Crown Inn, The White Rose and The Kings Arms which was filmed as The Drovers Arms in the TV series ‘All Creatures Great And Small’. The pubs provide bar meals and The Kings Arms also has The Silks Restaurant.

Burn Cottage has an entrance porch leading into the inviting sitting room with its multi-fuel stove, comfy seating and antique pine dresser. This room then leads into the spacious and very well equipped dining/white Shaker style kitchen with antique pine dining table. A door from the kitchen takes you upstairs to the two Double bedrooms, and a single room. There is a down stairs toilet, along with a new shower room and a bathroom so no fighting over the bathroom in the morning!
To the rear of the cottage there is a private patio which is walled with garden furniture, and a couple of outside stores, including the coal store.
