School House in Askrigg has long been a popular cottage on our books with the present property owners always striving to improve and update. I was asked to go and take more photos as they have now changed the linen in the double bedroom to a lovely set of blue and white perfectly in keeping with the character of the cottage. They’ve also installed a new table and chairs in the kitchen, again always in sympathy with this pretty cottage. Fresh emulsion on the walls has the cottage glistening and ready and waiting for its next holidaymakers.

School House sleeps four plus one well behaved dog and can be found on a quiet lane behind the church in West End which leads down to a lovely walk to Mill Gill where you gaze on small yet perfectly formed waterfalls. Follow the path to take you above Askrigg, across the fields to Helm and Skell Gill or where you will. Park your car at the cottage and take a different route each day. Always check your OS Map OL30 for specific directions and to plan your walk though.

Askrigg is in mid Wensleydale in the glorious Yorkshire Dales, a dale wide and generous, green and lush, a wondrous place to live and to visit, come and join us sometime soon!
