Lodge Yard, Askrigg

Yorkshire Dales, England
  • An award-winning development of 29 apartments and cottages
  • Glorious gardens
  • In the heart of the Yorkshire Dales
  • Fabulous walking country
  • Pretty villages, quaint towns
  • Good old-fashioned Yorkshire charm

Lodge Yard is a delightful development of cottages and apartments close to the centre of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is located in the small village of Askrigg, in Wensleydale, which was celebrated as Darrowby in the popular TV series All Creatures Great and Small.

Lodge Yard is an award-winning conversion of historic stable buildings and is adjacent to the local pub, the Kings Arms, which featured in the James Herriot stories as The Drovers.

Askrigg has an interesting history – its name is actually Norse for ‘the ridge where ask tress grew’, meaning Vikings once settled there.

The National Park straddles the central Pennines in the counties of North Yorkshire and Cumbria, combining breathtaking scenery with beautiful wildlife and a rich cultural heritage. Packed into this area is a fascinating variety of natural attractions, from rolling moors and spectacular limestone crags to the famous Three Peaks of Ingleborough, Pen-y-Ghent and Whernside, as well as the yawning cavern of Gaping Gill.

Lodge Yard, Askrigg is part of the Holiday Property Bond portfolio offering exclusive access to over 1,400 properties to its 41,000 investors ("Bondholders"). If you are not already a Bondholder and would like further details please see below.

Explore Yorkshire Dales National Park

Well, when it’s on your doorstep, it would be rude not to! If you’re keen to stretch those legs, there are over 140 guided walks to complete, giving you more than enough reasons to keep coming back to Lodge Yard. Those after a real challenge will want to try and climb the three peaks: Ingleborough, Pen-y-Ghent and Whernside.

Hundreds of events take place in the National Park every year, too. You can go for a night walk in a quest to spot some bats, drink your fill at a beer festival or take the children to go stream dipping. Additionally there are more traditional events, such as village fetes and farming shows, to attend.

Treat yourself with a shopping trip to Harrogate

If you love to shop until you drop, we strongly suggest paying a visit to the spa town of Harrogate. Here, you’ll find a wide selection of shops, from high street favourites to designer stores and independent boutiques. When you need a break from shopping, head to one of the many great local cafes. Bettys Café Tea Rooms is highly recommended – though it’s so popular you may have to wait to secure a seat.

Learn more about this interesting town’s history by taking a trip to the Royal Pump Room Museum. You’ll get to see the strongest sulphur well in Europe, learn about Ancient Egypt, and more – the children will love it.

Go birdwatching in the Yorkshire Dales

Make sure you pack the binoculars – the Yorkshire Dales is a haven for all forms of wildlife, especially birds. One of the best places to go finding is Wensleydale, where birds of prey such as the peregrine falcon and kestrel can be seen. If you’re lucky, you may even spot the elusive goshawk.

Pick up one of the many guides to birdwatching in the Yorkshire Dales to discover what organised activities are taking place this year.

Enjoy a day out in Hawes

The market town of Hawes is home to the famous Wensleydale cheese, so make sure you pick some up to take home with you. Tuesday is market day – stalls are located both in and outdoors, so there’s fun to be had whatever the weather.

There is lots to see and do in Hawes; you could visit the Dales Countryside Museum, participate in a craft workshop or grab a bite to eat in one of the many pubs, restaurants and cafes. After lunch, why not go for a stroll? There are several routes you can follow, including the Hawes Town Trail and the Pennine Way.

Gaze upon Yorkshire’s beautiful waterfalls

You can’t visit Wensleydale without taking in its amazing waterfalls. Aysgarth Falls, which comprises a triple flight of waterfalls, is truly incredible. If you want to see all three falls, there is a riverside walk you can follow. You may recognise this stretch of water from the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.

Another waterfall not to be missed is Hardraw Force – the highest single-drop waterfall in England.
