Rook's Cottage, Askrigg


If you were going to write a description for the perfect country holiday cottage, then Rook’s Cottage would be it. It is a Grade 2 listed building tucked away near the church in the centre of Askrigg. It was built in 1825 according to its date stone in the fireplace and has a rare stone spiral turret staircase. Rook’s is full of traditional Dales character with massive oak beams, reputed to have been originally ships beams, York stone and pine boarded floors, sash windows and nooks and crannies in every wall. The Yorkshire Range with open fire in the kitchen is a great centrepiece for the room and there is a further cosy stove in the stone fireplace in the living room which is upstairs so that you get the best views of Wensleydale.

Rook’s Cottage has been fully refurbished with comfort in mind. It has a master bedroom with king size bed and ensuite shower room downstairs and a twin room upstairs next door to the gorgeous bathroom with its roll top bath and separate shower. Downstairs is the farmhouse style dining kitchen-great for a leisurely meal chilling out around the antique pine dining table with a glass of wine and the fire lit. Upstairs is the delightful lounge with its own fireplace and large squishy leather sofas.

Also upstairs is the secret garden, which can only be accessed through the door at the top of the turret staircase. It is perfect for an alfresco glass of wine whilst hidden away in your own secret corner of Askrigg.
