Why not book our fantastic barn
The Barn is a unique self-catering property, which sleeps up to 6 people. The Barn is well situated on top of the hill above The Crown Inn, giving The Barn some of the best views of the surrounding Dales, and is a peaceful and relaxing place to unwind.
The stone built detached property has a well equipped kitchen, shower room with toilet and a lounge with a dining area on the ground floor. The wood burning stove in the lounge provides the necessary heating and makes this charming haven a home from home.
The spiral staircase in the lounge takes you to mezzanine floor where the double bedroom and separate toilet are situated, the twin bedded room leads off this.
The south facing patio seating area of The Barn is a perfect place to have a drink at the end of the day from the conveniently situated Crown Inn. The two large fields are an ideal area for children and dogs to play.
The Barn is an excellent base for walking with footpaths from the door, and if cycling is your passion, the Dales have some of the best hills in Yorkshire.
Camping is also available at the Crown, Askrigg, please call to book.
Where we are
We are located in the small village of Askrigg, in the heart of Wensleydale, within the Yorkshie Dales National Park. The village of Askrigg lies sheltered beneath the stunning fells of Ellerkin and Askrigg Common towards the top of Wensleydale. Its two and three storey stone houses and cottages line the main street, with the 15th century parish church of St Oswald’s in the centre of the village in the old cobbled marketplace, complete with its market cross and an iron bull ring set into the cobbles. Nearby villages within walking distance include Worton and Bainbridge, both lovely walks.
There are plenty of walks, including ones along the banks of the nearby River Ure and the Askrigg Waterfalls Walk which takes in both Whitfield Force and Mill Gill Force above Askrigg.
In the area there are other attractions like Bolton Castle, Aysgarth Falls and The Wensleydale Creamery.
