"Askrigg" Top 5 Page for this destination Yorkshire Dales National Park Things to Do Tip by Sjalen


This is a village lots of you will have seen without realising it, as it was the main film location for outdoor scenes of "All Creatures...", the TV series about vet Herriot. Set on its own along a fellside where a small forest meets the otherwise open Wensleydale, it is as Yorkshire as it gets with stone houses around a church. Sadly very popular with tourists due to its TV fame, you can still find it relaxing here as the village is hard to reach without your own car (there is a post van now and again) but it is even better to visit out of season.

Address: Wensleydale
Directions: Not that far east of Hawes.

Review Helpfulness: 2 out of 5 stars
