About Rose Cottage

Rose Cottage sleeps up to four guests and is a charming double fronted Dales stone cottage that lives up to its name with a garden full of delightful roses in the summer, providing the ideal place to pass the time of day and watch the world go by. Whatever time of year you plan to visit the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Rose Cottage provides a warm welcome with log burner for winter breaks and lovely garden with patio and BBQ for when the sun shines.

This delightful retreat sits in the end of a row of cottages on the outskirts of Askrigg village with its excellent amenities (including pubs and a traditional shop for stocking up on provisions). Heaving with character, Rose Cottage has a lovely open fire, stone shelves, deep set windows and beamed ceilings, with an old barn behind it which is ideal for storing bikes and outdoor gear.

There are an excellent choice of walks starting from the cottage, which has the benefit of its own parking space for a car - a rarity in the village! Whatever time of year it is, the village and Yorkshire Dales National Park offers plenty to see and do.

Askrigg nestles beneath the picturesque fells of Askrigg Common and Ellerkin close to the top of Wensleydale. Its main street is lined with attractive stone cottages and houses and it has a charming old market square with cobbles complete with an original iron bull ring, pump, market cross and an attractive 15th Century church (St Oswalds) at its heart.

Used as a film set on many occasions in 'All Creatures Great and Small', visitors to Askrigg may recognise this small village as fictitious 'Darrowby', home to James Herriot and his veterinary practice. Cringley House in the main street was known as ‘Skeldale House’ in the BBC series and the Kings Arms doubled up as the ‘Drovers Arms’.

The villages has some small shops for stocking up on provisions including a good village store, delicatessen, local farm that sells eggs, milk and cream, a newsagents and a choice of three pubs, The Crown Inn, the famous Kings Arms (with The Silks Restaurant) and The White Rose, all providing bar meals.
