DESCRPTION Skeldale House is the actual surgery used in the filming of the James Herriot 'All Creatures Great and Small' TV series. It sits in the tourist Dales honeypot of Askrigg which also has the TV 'Drovers Arms' pubs.

Askrigg is picturesque village with its ancient market cross, notable church and cobbled central "green". It has a primary school, good general store, cafe, delicatessen, gift shop as well as 3 good pubs, a number of B&B's and an excellent community life.

The building, an impressive Georgian Grade II Listed 4 storey house, was, at one time split in to flats. This has allowed the current owners to create 6 superb apartment suites, and use as a boutique hotel.


On the ground floor is a large lounge, dining room and a superb fitted kitchen. The 7th ground floor suite is used as the office, laundry room, boiler room and also has guest toilet facilities. On the lower ground floor are extensive cellars with stone steps and flag stone flooring.

Upstairs are a further two floors, which house the six apartments which are used as holiday accommodations. The owners have run a superb bed and breakfast business, deliberately trading under the VAT threshold, by closing for 3/4 months during the winter. There is potential to expand the business, by creating a museum/ tearoom on the ground floor and also by opening throughout the year. The business is temporarily close due to Covid health reasons, there are still enquiries daily.

The property is ready to trade with good books, a web site and all trade fixtures and fittings.

Please watch the video and if you can see yourself welcoming Mr Herriot and Mr Farron fans through your door this is the place for you.
