RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS
Small, Clean, Well Equipped with two drawbacks
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here with lovely walks for my wife and I to take the dog on and a well equipped cottage. The owner was helpful and friendly when we asked if we could have a barbeque with friends given the social distancing issues at the moment.
I am fit and able and taking bags to and from the car about 150 yards away and through a narrow stone gate was not an issue but it could be for some.
If there was a hook for the hand held shower attachment to allow you to stand up with a shower curtain it would be good.
Would I book this again now I have stayed here, YES, I would.
Small and not quite perfectly formed
Stated here for a week recently. The cottage has been refurbished nicely and sympathetically with its age. It is well equiped. However as a previous review has stated it does have negative points too. The distance from parking (whilst not vast) and the tricky access with luggage and belongings is a pain. Definitely not one for anyone with mobility issues. The path directly outside the cottages has become covered in grass would be difficult to avoid taking in wet/mud in bad weather. Would benefit from a new outside door mat as it is very worn. There is no carpet or rugs downstairs. From photos there obviously used to be, presume it was removed as damaged, but stone floor is cold and would be slippy if gets wet. Does need at least a rug. Coal fire is nice and needed as cottage gets quite chilly due to no double glazing and there are gaps in the door panels that the wind whistles through. I think it would get cold in winter. Be aware there is a bath with a hand held shower only. Makes hair washing difficult and again no good for mobility problems. Lots of hot water though. Cottage very small so make sure you don't want lots of personal space! Stairs are very steep. Also missed not having a bit of garden to sit out in for a cuppa. Amazing views from windows at the front though.
Lavender cottage Ashrigg
The cottage although more than adaquate in terms of equipment has certain down sides. It is reached via a very narrow ginnel over the churchyard and it is quite a feat to get luggage in. You can go the long way via the road and back entrance but there is no parking at this point and you are not told this entrance exists until you work it out after you have struggled. The stairs are very narrow and steep so not for anyone with any mobility issues. There is a very narrow bathroom with on shower.
The biggest issue with this cottage is lack of parking. We found church parking full most days whatever time we returned, likewise when we arrived. Nearest car park is half a mile uphill at the other end of the village. Village centre crammed with cars especially on weekends.
We have just returned from a weeks holiday in Askrigg staying at Lavender cottage. The cottage is well maintained to a high standard with everything you need with stunning views over the Dales. The fire is a great feature with a complimentary bag of coal and kindle provided. The bed is comfortable which after a day of walking is just what you need. The only thing I would have liked is a shower rather than bath but it was not a major issue. I would highly recommend this cottage.
Lavender Cottage is very clean and the abundance of hot water is great! A genuine Dale's cottage in a quiet location - exactly what we wanted.
