“A wonderful Dales BnB”
Reviewed 14 March 2011

My partner and I stayed at Holmedale last summer and have been meaning to write a review ever since. This place is really special. Ben and Helen are so kind and helpful and make a wonderful breakfast.
It wasn't in the least old fashioned, stuffy or full of the bores that BnBs used to be (no tv room, no curfew, no old lady who yells at you for making noise as you come home at night.) It was peaceful, clean, spacious, well appointed and right in the middle of the Dales. There's ample parking right in front of Holmedale outside the Church of St Oswald.
We stayed in the St Oswald room (named for its view, presumably.) It was huge and the bed was sooooooo comfy. There is a DVD player in the room and DVDs in the hallway if you can stay awake for a movie after a day in the Dales! There's a kettle and a constant supply of tea. The bathroom is big and clean with its own window overlooking the church.
Ben and Helen had great recommendations for walks, packed lunches, meals and pubs. We followed their advice to great success. (Our tip: book for dinner, don't just show up, and don't forget that dinner happens very early in this part of the world.)
Finally - as if the breakfasts weren't great enough, we decided to have Helen bake us a cake (you can order one if you give 24 hours notice) to take to our friends in Wales, the next stop on our trip. It was delicious, and what's nicer than a home-made cake to take away with you at the end of your stay?!
Don't hesitate to stay at Holmedale - it made a perfect home for walks, horse riding, dairy touring, and relaxing.

My partner and I found this to be an excellent choice of B&B. The house itself was ideally located in the centre of Askrigg, close to shops & pubs with parking available opposite. We stayed in the smallest of the available rooms but it was still a great size for the price that we payed. The room was clean, tidy & cosy with an excellent en suite. The owners were very friendly & helpful (even lending us their map for the day!) and the breakfast was vert tasty! All considered we had an excellent weekend and wouldn't hesitate in going back there, in fact were going to book again for a weekend in the summer... :o)

My husband and I stayed here while I was pregnant heavily pregnant as a final holiday before our baby arrived.
We both found the hospitality brilliant, from the very warm welcome to advice on local restaurants and things to do. The breakfasts were great and catered especially for my pregnant and vegetarian needs. The fresh eggs were amazing as was the granola.
What was most special about our stay was the family feel, it was lovely to stay here. We will certainly go back and stay.

We stayed at Holmedale last week and what a wonderful Bed and Breakfast in an amazing location!!! We stayed for a few days and it was fantastic. Helen and Ben are such lovely hosts and very accomodating to our needs, they recommended some fantastic walks and great places to eat! The best being the Fish and Chips on a Wednesday night!!!
There was so much choice on the breakfast menu we wished we could have stayed longer to try everything but the Granola is a must and the Pancakes with Bacon and maple syrup are extra special!!!!
Our room was so spacious and I've never seen and slept in such a big, comfortable bed. All the facilities we needed were there and the shower was lovely, which is a must.
I would highly recommend Askrigg and Holmedale to anyone wanting a relaxing, comfortable break away, just wonderful!! Thank you.

A nice welcome from the start, the room was comfortable and spacious and clean bar for a few cobwebs on the beams. The breakfast was taken in an informal room next to the kitchen which made it feel like a family breakfast together as the hosts served and jack there small boy came in and out, a good variety for breakfast very good quality and something different to try each day.To sum it up a friendly family run laid back and caring b&b and yes we would go back.
As for eating in Askrigg you are better of going into Hawes for friendly pubs and variety,avoid the Crown at Bainbrige as i found a large chunk of plastic in my food and they didnt seem to bothered.

If you're looking to stay in the Askrigg area, you must stay at Holmedale. It is the perfect B&B. We came to stay for a 2 night break away and with the warm welcome we received from Helen and Ben, we felt instantly at home. The house is beautifully decorated, and extremely clean. We stayed in the St Oswald Room which was just fabulous. A massive bed, and a good, powerful shower in the en-suite. Breakfast is definitely something to look forward to. Lots of choice (the Yorkshire Dales Breaskfast and the Pancakes with bacon and maple syrup are fabulous), and all of it of a very high quality. Askrigg a picture perect little village, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We've already recommended Holmedale to all of our friends and family, so if you want to go, book quick ;-)

We ate at the Kings Arms in Askrigg on one night, and can recommend that too!
