Additional Location Information

Kirklea is situated in the heart of the village of Askrigg - nominated by The Times as the best place in the UK for a holiday home!

This beautiful little village is in the heart of the Dales with a history back to the Vikings – see (website: hidden)  You might recognise it from the TV adaptation of 'All Creatures Great and Small' as the fictional town of Darrowby. It's a popular area with holiday-makers and walkers but still retains a quiet, homely atmosphere. The river Yore offers good opportunities for fishing.

Very importantly it has excellent cafes, local shops and pubs which serve food and some fine local ales (some brewed in the village)! It's also well-serviced by local buses so it's easy to get around. There's also ample parking in free public car parks. The closest towns are Hawes and Leyburn, which are well worth a look – the famous Wensleydale Dairy is in Hawes.

The cottage has lovely walking routes directly from the garden to footpaths leading to the local beauty-spots of Wensleydale.

The local area – Wensleydale

Askrigg nestles on the slopes of Wensleydale. There are easy local walks down to the banks of the River Ure and the hidden falls of Mill Gill (website: hidden)

There are longer, easy walks to Aysgarth Falls (used in the film 'Robin Hood Prince of Thieves') & Castle Bolton, both must-see places during your holidays.

The cottage looks down the valley to the crags of Nappa Scar and the many nearby peaks, including Askrigg Common and the commanding 480m plateau of Addleborough. These are more demanding walks but well worth the climbs for the spectacular views across the whole of the Dales.
