Situated in the traditional heart of the village of Askrigg, Sykes s House is thought to have been built around 1687 and can be found opposite the beautiful 15th century church of St Oswald s.
The building has undergone many changes over the years, from being a family home to having once been a Temperance Hotel. Now, it is a thriving village store with two large en-suite letting rooms as well as a tea room.
There is a large secure covered courtyard that can accommodate bicycles and has plenty of room for any maintenance you may need to do. Wet coats can be left here overnight rather than dripping in your room!
Throughout all the changes the building still maintains many of its original features including the stone spiral staircase, exposed beams and fireplaces. All renovations have been made sympathetically.
