  • “Lovely cottage.”

    Excellent position in the middle of Askrigg with walks from outside the front door.

    Excellent position in the middle of Askrigg with walks from outside the front door. The owner has gone to a lot of trouble to keep visitors safe during the pandemic, making small changes to the facilities. Spotlessly clean. A warm cozy base to return to after a days walk.

The property

This semi-detached cottage is situated down a quiet lane leading off from the main road opposite the Church, in the pretty and peaceful village of Askrigg.

Old Mill 1 is a pretty and characterful converted Mill equally suited for couples, friends or a small family wanting to experience a holiday with a taste of authentic charm.

Entry is from the undercover parking space into a small vestibule, through to the lounge/diner which is bright and homely, with a woodburning stove, TV and French doors to the lovely patio area.

Rustic red sofas offset the exposed stone feature wall, and natural light sweeps in from the windows.

Nearby, the kitchen is effectively styled in a black and white theme, with pattern effect tiles, and a collection of appliances to make you feel right at home.

The first floor reveals two bedrooms, the twin setup benefits from a window out onto the lane, whilst the double room is elevated by exposed beams, with a scenic aspect across the village and over to the fells.

It is also joined by an en-suite shower room, with the family bathroom excellently located between the two bedrooms.

Out and about, Askrigg is home to three pubs, a village shop and church.

Ideally placed for exploring the Local Dales and towns of Hawes and Leyburn or for enjoying the marvellous walking and cycling the area has to offer, this holiday cottage makes a promising choice.

Wensleydale and Swaledale boast beauty spots in the area including Aysgarth Falls and Semerwater, not forgetting castles at both Bolton and Middleham.

This cottage and village are a desirable place to visit.

About the location

It makes an excellent holiday location for walkers, offering a great base from which to explore both Wensleydale and Swaledale, with beauty spots in the area including Aysgarth Falls, Semerwater, castles at both Bolton and Middleham and of course, Hardraw Force - England’s highest single drop waterfall at 99ft!
