Property information

Skeldale House by Maison Parfaite, is an Iconic Building set in the very heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. You may have fond memories of Skeldale House from its starring role as the veterinary surgery in the original series of All Creatures Great and Small. And now you can relive those heart-warming scenes of James Herriot and Siegfried Farnon waltzing in, through the fabulous entrance doors, to be greeted by Mrs Hall and a hearty Yorkshire dinner, after another tension filled day of saving livestock, appeasing the locals and trying to stay on the road in that old Austin! There’s a nod to the 1950’s era with the mid-century styling and ornate detailing, with compact but well equipped kitchens, 58’’ 4K Ultra HD TV’s and sumptuously elegant, comfortable beds and roll top baths: For suite name, see second image on room images for door plaque.

The Herriot and Farnon Suites: King bed plus small sofa bed in lounge / bedroom is best suited to 1 or 2 small children. bathroom, compact kitchen. All others: King bed studio, kitchenette, bathroom

Neighbourhood information

Askrigg with its old market cross and the impressive Parish Church of St Oswald, which can be found at the end of a long main street of lovely eighteenth and nineteenth century houses, was once celebrated for its clock makers. There are several fine examples of their work on display in our Dales Countryside Museum in nearby Hawes. In later years the village corn and then textile mill was powered by the Mill Gill stream, which flows through a narrow wooded valley to pretty Mill Gill Falls – a favourite walk from the village. James Herriot's home: Our imposing house in Askrigg enjoyed television fame in the 1970s and 1980s as Skeldale House – home of the fictional Dales vet James Herriot, whilst the King's Arms became the setting for the Drover's Inn. There are many footpaths around the village with which you could create a short walk - the climb up Mill Gill is a local favourite. Those wanting more of a challenge could walk further along the valley to Hawes or eastwards to Carperby, Castle Bolton and Redmire. Askrigg is well-served with three pubs, a brewery, a tea room, deli and craft shops. It makes a great base for visitors
