It is a perfect cottage, located in a glorious part of the world.
lovely cottage comfortable and clean . Great locations and in the middle of the Dales. The three eating locations in the village are all very good
Lovely cottage. Had a really eventful and full holiday. Beautiful area and much to do. Can highly recommend Humble Pie and the fish and chip van (6.30pm Wednesday). Had an exceptional meal at The Wensleydale Heifer.
Beautiful cottage, a very enjoyable stay. Lots of great walks in the hills followed by some even greater beer.
Lovely, comfortable and clean cottage with very well equipped kitchen. Great location with easy access to local pubs. Great local walks straight from the cottage. Superb access to the Dales for walking and touring. A very nice stay. Many thanks we enjoyed it very much.
No faults whatsoever, everything perfect. So many pretty villages and delightful people to chat to
Very comfortable, spotlessly clean cottage. Had everything we needed. Love the Dales- leaving part of our hearts here! Tried The Crown & The Kings Arms. Very relaxed in The Crown and superb food in The Kings Arms. Try the bakers/butchers in Hawes! Wensleydale Creamery is brill too.
We have enjoyed our stay in this super cottage. Everything we needed for our lovely week in the Dales. We will definitely come again. Keld to Muker walk was wonderful and also sunny.
Had a lovely stay at the cottage. We loved the fire and made the most of it during our stay. We visited Hawes and Leyburn as well as exploring some of the walks on the doorstep.
Lovely stay, great cottage. Location was perfect for travelling around and we've had some fabulous walks at Aysgarth, Dent and Burnsall.
Wonderful stay in this pretty, cosy cottage. Highly recommend taking a trip to Gordale Scar and Malham which are spectacular. White Scar Caves were interesting too. We mostly cooked but enjoyed excellent cakes from Humble Pie.
It was absolutely perfect for our walking weekend away. Very cosy - the log burning fire was so nice to come back to. There was plenty of hot water for baths and showers and the cottage is really well kitted out with everything you may need - a real home from home!
Lovely village and thoroughly enjoyed our time here.
Excellent accommodation, good facilities. Plenty of places to visit. Overall a pleasant stay.
We have stayed at Thornsgill Cottage many times and our stay is never long enough. The cottage itself is warm, cosy and comfortable, ideal for us to return to with the dogs after a long day out walking in the spectacular scenery of the Yorkshire Dales. The lock up garage enables us to store our bikes safely so that we can enjoy cycling too. The village of Askrigg is friendly and has everything we’ve needed - a shop, a cake shop - and several great pubs of course. We will definitely be back!
A fantastic cottage. Was very cosy and had everything we could possibly need. Food in The Crown was delicious.
I have been a repeat visitor to the gorgeous Thornsgill Cottage. The log burner makes it cosy in winter, just perfect for retreating to a comfy sofa with a large glass of wine after a long walk in the hills. It has everything you need if you want to cook but frankly it would be a shame to miss out on the wonderful local pubs which are only a hop, skip and a jump away. It’s also been brilliant to be able to bring my dog to the cottage - the only downside to this is you then have absolutely no excuse not get get up and get out onto the hills - a hard prospect to contemplate when tucked up all snug in one of the extremely comfortable beds.
We stayed as 2 families and a dog at Thornsgill Cottage for Easter and had the most wonderful and cosy time, walking, chilling and entertaining ourselves in the close-by pubs of Askrigg. The cottage itself is perfectly equipped with everything you could wish for in a Yorkshire retreat. It’s warm, loads of hot water, an awesome real fire and very comfortable bedrooms - You really can kick back and switch off here. We did some fantastic walking by the river or up on the hills, with great pubs in nearby villages to use as destinations or fuel stops Fantastic stay, we’ll be back there in a heartbeat.
Loved our trip to this great cottage in Askrigg. Very comfortable and fully equipped with all you need and in a wonderful spot in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. Fab pub, The Kings Arms, in the village and stunning walks all around. Rolling hills and beautiful waterfalls, Aysgarth Falls and Castle Bolton near by. We even had the most wonderful weather at Easter. Would highly recommend. Family Holmes - Easter 2015
The small Wensleydale village of Askrigg is an idyllic location to enjoy a self catering break. The outstanding beauty of the Yorkshire Dales National Park surrounds you, allowing you to walk or cycle the area in any direction, with the bustling market towns of Hawes, Leyburn and Northallerton being just a short drive away where you will 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 Askrigg was a 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 will find three pubs, The Crown Inn (which dates back to 1850), The White Rose Hotel and the Kings Arms. The village is also home to some great tea rooms such as Humble Pie - a village bakery with a delicatessen, coffee shop and also serves take away meals. Askrigg also has a village store and newsagents.
