Welcome to Skeldale House
Set in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales

You may already 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!

Featuring six gloriously appointed studio suites and one larger apartment, as well as ‘The Surgery’ where guests can take afternoon tea served by our private chefs, Skeldale House is THE place to stay whilst exploring all that the Yorkshire Dales has to offer.

You’ll be thrilled by the achingly luxurious décor that greets you as you step through the door at Skeldale House. There’s a distinct nod to the 1950’s era with the mid-century styling and ornate detailing. Juxtaposed perfectly with the ultra-slick modernist style kitchens, 58’’ 4K Ultra HD TV’s and sumptuously elegant, comfortable beds and roll top baths, you’ll be able to kick off your hiking boots and wallow in the luxury of it all! As with all Maison Parfaite Properties the attention to detail is second to none.

We have even installed a fully operational Austin 10 outside the front door – just so that you can take your Instagram pics and get the full All Creatures Great and Small experience from Maison Parfaite.

Skeldale House in the beautiful village of Askrigg…
A wonderful base for exploring the Dales

Askrigg itself is a charming, picture-perfect Dales Village. The whole village was ‘Darrowby’ the fictional town in All Creatures Great and Small, so you’ll find much of it very familiar! One of the three pubs in the village, The Kings Arms, which sits opposite Skeldale House on the main street was The Drovers Arms, where James, Tristan and Siegfried finished many a traumatic shift off with a stiff drink!

From Askrigg you can embark on so many walks without the need to drive off to another start point, and the main street is blessed with not only three pubs but also The Bake Well Café and numerous shops.
The market town of Hawes is just a short drive or a hike away, and here you can sample the delights of The Creamery where you can try every variety of Wensleydale Cheese known to man!

Which one will you choose…

There are seven fabulously appointed apartments to choose from depending on your group size and requirements. One very large One-Bedroomed apartment, two large studios, and four smaller but spacious studios awhich are equally comfortable and luxurious.
