Askrigg is a Yorkshire Dales village of character. With its tall three storied houses, leading up the sloping street from St. Oswald’s Church.
You may already be familiar with Askrigg, as it was the fictional village of Darrowby, featured in the television series “All Creatures Great And Small”. Other local attractions have also featured on the big screen, such as Bolton Castle and Aysgarth Falls - with three waterfalls in total. They were used to film scenes for the box office hit Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, starring Kevin Costner.
Mill Gill Force is another spectacular local waterfall, about three quarters of a mile to the north-west.
Whatever you decide to do, we will be more than happy to help with any questions regarding places of interest and the local area, and we hope you enjoy your stay in this beautiful village.
