“Lavender cottage Ashrigg”
Reviewed May 14, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The cottage although more than adaquate in terms of equipment has certain down sides. It is reached via a very narrow ginnel over the churchyard and it is quite a feat to get luggage in. You can go the long way via the road and back entrance but there is no parking at this point and you are not told this entrance exists until you work it out after you have struggled. The stairs are very narrow and steep so not for anyone with any mobility issues. There is a very narrow bathroom with on shower.
The biggest issue with this cottage is lack of parking. We found church parking full most days whatever time we returned, likewise when we arrived. Nearest car park is half a mile uphill at the other end of the village. Village centre crammed with cars especially on weekends.

“Fantastic Stay”
Reviewed April 9, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We have just returned from a weeks holiday in Askrigg staying at Lavender cottage. The cottage is well maintained to a high standard with everything you need with stunning views over the Dales. The fire is a great feature with a complimentary bag of coal and kindle provided. The bed is comfortable which after a day of walking is just what you need. The only thing I would have liked is a shower rather than bath but it was not a major issue. I would highly recommend this cottage.

“Lovely base to explore the area”

This cottage is ideally placed for exploring Wensleydale and the surrounding areas either by car or on foot. It is just off the centre of the village of Askrigg which is a typical Dales village.

To get to the cottage, you have to walk through the church yard and go through a rather narrow gap in a wall. The cottage is the second in a block of six terraced ones. It is small - just right for a couple and a small dog. The front door opens straight into the living room with a small kitchen/dining area at the back. Upstairs is a double bedroom and a small bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped and the sofa is really comfortable. The views from both the living room and bedroom are good.

However, a couple of things to be aware of. Firstly, the front is described as being a south facing communal garden. It is more like a public footpath. There is a smallish children's play park at the end of the terrace so children are continually running to and from this area right past all the cottages. Also, visitors continually walk past having walked through the church yard, wanting to see where the gap in the wall leads to. Most also liked to look through the window to see what's inside. Additionally, there is no dedicated parking space and as Askrigg is a popular place, parking is very much a problem.

What we were very surprised to read on reading the information file left at this cottage was that the electric meter was read before arrival and after departure. If more than £10 had been used, you would be charged. Never come across this before.

The wall lights behind the sofa didn't work - something the previous couple had noticed. Lighting had to come from the TV and the lights under the kitchen units. It would be nice if a shower curtain could be put up to save getting water everywhere when using the hand held shower. We never found the picnic hamper and couldn't use the patio set as they were on the wall in the coal outhouse which was dirty as you can imagine. Also, although the living room window has shutters instead of curtain, whilst a nice touch, left the window open to passers by to look in. A net halfway up would stop that yet still affording the view of the hills opposite.

There is a mobile chippy on a Wednesday evening about 6ish which is highly popular and one which can be recommended. Fish is a really good size which is a bonus. The deli opposite the church does a divine home made quiche which is served in a good sized serving - again, thoroughly recommended.

We have explored the North Yorkshire Dales over many years. It is one of the most beautiful parts of England. Askrigg is a lovely little village which is very popular as there are many holiday lets there. We would stay at Lavendar Cottage again, especially as you can take your dog, but not during school holidays.

“Perfectly equipped base for a couple.”
Reviewed July 29, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This cottage had everything needed for our week in Wensleydale. With it not being on the roadside, it certainly provided a very quiet night's sleep with no traffic noise. A few villagers using the footpath past the door during the evening also no problem. There is no dedicated car parking but we soon got used to finding a space at the right time outside the church. So a perfectly adequate accommodation with no complaints from us. Thanks.
