The Apothecary's House is an attractive three-storey Georgian B&B in the village of Askrigg at the centre of Wensleydale in the Yorkshire Dales. Askrigg is a thriving village with three pubs, village shops, cafés and a church while Wensleydale, one of the premier Yorkshire Dales, has a wide variety of local attractions. With a 4 Stars, Silver Award B and B rating, the Apothecary's House is an ideal base for exploring all that the Yorkshire Dales have to offer whether it be touring; walking; cycling or simply relaxing in the beautiful countryside.

The house is centrally located in the village, just below Skeldale House, the surgery of the vet, James Herriot, in the well-known TV series "All Creatures Great and Small". It is so named because it was originally built in 1756 by the local apothecary, Dr. James Lightfoot, though it was re-modelled around 1850 in a Georgian style.

As a bed and breakfast, we are particularly noted for the quality and variety of our breakfasts which use locally-sourced products wherever possible. (Though we have to admit, the pineapples don't come from Yorkshire!)

See Rooms All of our bedrooms are en-suite and have colour TV, tea and coffee making facilities, clock radios, shaver points, hair dryers and wireless broadband. An iron, ironing board, or trouser press are also available on request. Guests have the use of a large TV lounge on the ground floor with log fires in the winter. We have ample private parking and a lock-up garage for the use of cyclists.

We want all our guests to have a wonderful time with us. If there is anything that we can do to make your stay more enjoyable you only have to ask and we will do our best to oblige.
