ASKRIGG – OUR BASE FOR THE WEEKEND

This walking break will be based from the lovely village of Askrigg in the heart of Wensleydale, made famous many years ago as ‘Darrowby’ in the TV series All Creatures Great and Small. Elegant Georgian houses line the sweeping main street, complete with old Market Cross and ancient church, whilst the flat-topped summit of Addlebrough can be glimpsed in the distance above the rooftops. This part of Wensleydale is superb for walking, with lovely waterfalls, beautiful villages,  lots of history, fantastic views and great pubs. The weekend will be based at the fantastic Kings Arms, an historic coaching inn with high ceilings (complete with saddle hooks), inglenook fireplace and a warm welcome.

Askrigg boasts a range of accommodation from B&Bs and hotel to camping. We will send you a detailed list of accommodation when you make a booking with us.
