Description and Location
School House is a traditional, detached, stone-built cottage located on Mill Lane, a quiet cul-de-sac, which leaves the west side of the village, facing down towards the picturesque beauty spot of Mill Gill.
A pretty cottage, tastefully modernised with multi-fuel stove in the lounge for cosy evenings. A small entrance hallway leads to the lounge, kitchen and a stone flagged staircase. Through the kitchen is an under stair utility store which in turn leads to the rear of the cottage.
A stone-flagged patio garden gives ample space for outdoor eating and relaxation. Off the patio is a fuel store plus separate bicycle store and the side entrance to Mill Lane.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms, one with a double bed, the other with two singles. Each have built in wardrobes. The bathroom has a combined shower-bath suite with toilet and washbasin.
School House offers high quality accommodation in a tranquil setting with nearby pubs, restaurants, deli, convenience store and church in this popular and historic village.
Once a bustling market village of upper Wensleydale, Askrigg still reflects its history with stone flagged pavements leading to a cobbled market place centred by an ancient cross and overlooked by a 13th century church. The main street, lined by impressive terraced dwellings, is the beginning of many wynds and narrow side streets with yards and gardens that lead on to footpaths offering circuital routes with splendid views of Wensleydale backclothed by the steep fells of Addlebrough.
