A new listing for Spring 2017 - Nestling in the heart of the popular pretty village of Askrigg (or more famously 'Darrowby' for those that remember All Creatures Great & Small), situated on a quiet side road overlooking St Oswald’s Church, our delightful town cottage, dating back to the 1750s, is packed with charm, character, sleeps 4 and has everything you could need for your Yorkshire Dales holiday. After a day exploring the Dales there really is nowhere better to come home to roost. With a wonderful village Deli, handy village shop and 3 great pubs all within a couple of minutes' walk, this really is a great escape from it all.
With central heating installed in 2017, new kitchen and bathroom, our gorgeous cottage sleeps up to 4 people and comprises the following:-
Entrance porch: with hanging space for coats.
Lounge/dining room: Packed with character, boasting original beamed ceiling and beams from ceiling to floor, original stone shelves and cupboards, wood burning stove, plenty of hanging space for coats, hats, boots and wellies, Smart TV with Freeview Play, NetFlix subscription, DVD player, sound bar with sub woofer and blue tooth speaker, comfy sofas and dining table for 4.
Kitchen: Newly fitted in 2017 our fully equipped kitchen has an electric oven and ceramic hob, microwave, washer/dryer and fridge with icebox.
Bedroom 1: With double bed, hairdryer and Bluetooth wireless playback alarm clock radio with dual USB charging points. View to the front towards the Churchyard.
Bedroom 2: With twin beds, hairdryer and Bluetooth wireless playback alarm clock radio with dual USB charging points. View to the front towards the Churchyard.
Bathroom: Refurbished in 2017 with bath, separate shower cubicle with new Mira shower boasting adjustable flow, W.C. and wash hand basin.
Bed linen and towels are provided and included in our prices.
Please note that due to the age and character of our cottage, the ceilings are low.
To the rear of the property is a shared yard area. To the front there is bench seating (ideal for those who like to people watch or talk to locals and holiday makers on their way to the waterfalls). NB There is very little outside space at The Roost, we are a town cottage in the centre of Askrigg and we have no garden.
As with most properties in Askrigg, there is no designated parking at The Roost. Free parking is available throughout the village on a first come first serve basis.
We regret we are unable to accept pets.
Short breaks are available during off peak times.
