Urlay Nook, Askrigg

Urlay Nook is the only 5 star Gold Award holiday cottage in Askrigg, and one of only a handful in The Dales, and is probably the best two bedroomed holiday cottage in Askrigg. It is prettily yet conveniently situated on the edge of the village, next to Askrigg Beck and with views from the south facing rear of the cottage onto open fields, yet is still only a couple of minutes walk from the centre of the village with its shops, pubs, restaurants and church.

This is a cottage filled with light-it has 20 windows and 4 outside doors! Original features abound throughout the cottage, with its thick stone walls, beams, bread oven, and window seats. The cottage is co-ordinated throughout and decorated with paints from Farrow and Ball and The Little Greene Paint Company. The mixture of new and antique furniture ensures the true cottage atmosphere whilst ensuring that you have all of the modern comforts that you have worked hard for and deserve.

This is a luxurious and comfortable cottage in a fantastic location, equipped to an extremely high standard to ensure a warm welcome and fabulous holiday, and this is confirmed by the accolade of the 5 star Gold Award grading by VisitBritain.


Urlay Nook is a very special cottage with a shaker style dining kitchen in cream with beech worktops, traditional dresser, cream and wood table and chairs, traditional stone floor and door into the (hopefully) sunny, south facing garden. The utility room is off the kitchen with additional storage and drying space. There is a separate stone flagged and dramatic dining room, leading into the downstairs lobby with original bread oven in the massive stone walls of the cottage which keep it cool in summer and cosy and warm in winter. From the lobby, you access the living room with its stone fireplace with multifuel stove, and two large, comfortable settees to curl up on and relax.

Upstairs the cottage has two spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. There is a large master kingsized bedroom with a stunning handcrafted 6 ft bed and ensuite shower room, a magnificent beamed ceiling, antique furniture, and flatscreen TV. The twin bedroom has a romantic pair of white and brass beds and more antique furniture and a further flat screen TV. The Villeroy and Boch house bathroom has a separate large shower and bath.

The cottage is next to the road, but is still lovely and peaceful with the sound of the beck running past it-the double glazed windows ensure that there is virtually no road noise. There is parking for one car directly outside the cottage, with additional and ample parking directly across the road.
