About The Shippon

The Shippon sleeps up to four guests in two bedrooms and is ideally tucked away in a quiet road, just a two minute stroll from the heart of Askrigg village with its excellent amenities, within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Perfect for couples, friends or families, this delightful barn conversion affords its own parking space and is ideal for walkers being a short stroll from the start of the popular Askrigg Waterfalls walk.

Providing a cosy stylish retreat, The Shippon is ideal at any time of the year with a pretty cottage garden with summer house for the summer months and a log burner in the cosy beamed sitting room for when it is chilly. Tastefully converted, the cottage is nicely presented with original features including beams and deepset windows, enhanced by local paintings, photographs and pottery.

Askrigg nestles beneath the stunning fells of Ellerkin and Askrigg Common, in a sheltered spot, towards the top of Wensleydale. It's pretty stone cottages and houses line the village's main street, with the 15th century parish church providing the focal point in the old cobbled market place in the heart of the village (you can still see the market cross and iron bull ring set into the cobbles). There is a good village shop for stocking up on basic provisions, along with a delicatessen selling local produce and tasty home cooked meals that can be enjoyed back to the cottage. There are also three pubs in the village serving bar food and a restaurant within one, along with the luxury Yorebridge House Hotel with fantastic restaurant for a special night out.

For walkers, the area is a paradise with numerous walks for all levels, from the less strenuous walks along the banks of the nearby River Ure and the Askrigg Waterfalls Walk which encompasses both Mill Gill Force and also Whitfield Force; to the more challenging climb up Addleborough and beyond across the dale.

Askrigg is a friendly Dales village and a superb base from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales many attractions. It also has its claims to fame and visitors may recognise the 'Drovers Arms' (which is actually the Kings Arms pub) and 'Skeldale House' (Crigley House) from the BBC TV series 'All Creatures Great and Small'.
