Reviews

Lovely cottage, good amenities and location

Victoria J,

Opportunity for a friends "catch up". highly recommend Hardraw Force, Aysgarth Falls,Ingleborough Caves, New Inn at Clapham, Kings Arms Askrigg. Cosy cottage and well equipped accommodation Thank you

Old School P,

A lovely week staying at Luke's House with my parents (in their seventies) and two small dogs. The cottage is wonderfully cosy and tucked away in a very rural setting (at the end of a long and very narrow lane) above Bainbridge - fantastic for great walks and glorious views of the countryside. The property was well equipped for cooking, very clean and had plenty of storage space - we also loved the thoughtful touches to the decor! Booked through Ingrid Flute's Yorkshire Cottages - highly recommended.

Mr Michael B,

Thank you for letting us stay in Lukes's House, we have has a wonderful week visiting the surrounding area and are even more convinced that Yorkshire is the best and most beautiful place in the world ! love the rural location and spent a lovely hottest bank holiday Monday in history in the stunning garden. We look forward to coming to stay here again x

Previous Customer,

Great week in Lukes House. We have our 2 sons and their families in Lukes Barn next door. 14 of us altogether! We first stayed in Lukes House in 1984 when we had 2 very small children and fell in love with Skelgill Lane and have been coming back regularly ever since. We are all sad to be leaving and hope to make it back soon.

Mawhinney Family,

Lovely, well equipped cottage in a relaxing location. Can recommend the drive up to Tan Hill. Fantastic views on a clear day and good food in the pub. Kirkby Lonsdale is worth a visit too.

Area Information

The small Wensleydale village of Askrigg is an idyllic location to enjoy a self-catering break. The sights of the Yorkshire Dales National Park surround you, with the bustling market towns of Hawes, Leyburn and Northallerton being just a short drive away where you'll find lovely independent shops, cafes and restaurants. The village is famous for being the setting of fictional Darrowby in tv's All Creatures Great and Small, though in the 18th century was hive of industry when it became a centre for the textiles and knitting trade. It is also thought that Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned in Askrigg's Nappa Hall before being moved further down the dale to Castle Bolton. Today in the village you'll find three pubs, The Crown Inn (which dates back to 1850), The White Rose Hotel and the Kings Arms. The village also is home to some great tea rooms such as Humble Pie Fawcett & Guy a village bakery with a delicatessen and coffee shop. Askrigg also has a village store and newsagents.
