My wife booked this B&B as a birthday weekend away and we were certainly not disappointed. We received such a warm welcome from Helen on arrival and were shown to our room (St Oswalds) which was very large, had a massive comfy bed and a lovely en-suite shower room.
Breakfast is served in the breakfast room (naturally), just off the family kitchen. A great selection of juices, cereals, great bread for toasting and the most amazing cooked breakfasts - try the pancakes - they are wonderful :)
We stayed at Holmedale for 3 nights, so had a chance to try each of the village pubs/hotels. Best , we found was the Crown inn, simply because of the friendly owners and the great simple food. The Kings Arms was very nice for a birthday treat, but was a little lacking in atmosphere. The White Rose was our third choice and also lacked atmosphere. Food was very good at all three places, so there are no really bad choices, just select to suit your mood.
Askrigg is such a beautiful and friendly village, we had a wonderful time and cannot wait to return. Needless to say, Holmedale will be our first choice for accommodation.
