Our 15th Century church, St Oswalds sits in the centre of the village with the ancient market cross marking the spot of the old cobbled Market Place.  Known for its lucrative textile and knitting trade it also gained a reputation for it clock making. Now industry is small here with farming being the biggest trade.  The village has a deli, tearoom, gift shop and village store.  We are also lucky to have three great pubs, all serving great, locally sourced food.

Askrigg lies in a valley between two moors and although small is outstandingly beautiful and quaint.  It is positioned in Upper Wensleydale , within the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is 12 west of our main town, Leyburn and just 5 miles east of Hawes, famous for its Wensleydale cheese production.


The White Rose Hotel

A 19th century residence it has been sympathetically refurbished by the current owners. Al a carte restaurant and bar meals are available. Lunches and dinners can be taken in the bar area, in the newly refurbished Orangery or the traditional restaurant area.

The Kings Arms

Also a very famous building this pub was used in the filming of All Creatures Great and Small and was known as the Drovers Arms.

Situated just across the road from us it was built in 1767 as a Coaching Inn by James Pratt a local man who made his fortune as a jockey. He was a racehorse breeder and Master of the Askrigg Harriers and the kennels he kept his pack of hounds in can still be seen behind the pub.

It offers a unique combination of old and new offering a relaxed blend of excellent food and good beers and wines in a stunning rural location.
The Crown

Built in the 18th century and positioned at the top of the village just a two minute stroll away. It’s a traditional Dales pub serving good ales and good, well prepared meals. No prior bookings are taken.

With the exception of the Crown if you require a table booking prior to your arrival just let us know and we’ll sort that for you.
