Cottages Askrigg - Skellgill House Cottage
Skellgill House Cottage is a 3* Star Yorkshire Dales farmhouse situated in a hamlet of six houses known as Skellgill, near Askrigg.
The rear part of the cottage is over 200 years old with low ceilings and stone mullioned windows whereas the front part was built in the later part of the nineteenth century. Adjoining the house are former farm buildings which would have housed a few cows and pigs.
Over the last 8 years, the present owners have modernised the cottage so that it now has central heating, double glazing and is comfortably furnished.
The cottage is located at the end of a ‘no through road’ one mile from the village of Bainbridge and one and a half miles from Askrigg. Hawes, the small market town at the head of Wensleydale is five miles to the west.
Footpaths from the doorstep lead to all these destinations as well as local fells and waterfalls.
The property is inspected annually by the English Tourist Board.
What our guests say...
Booked Skellgill House online in New Zealand and it lived up to everything I imagined for our family...most of all loved sitting by the stream, watching the cute lambs and having a BBQ!
