There is no garden at The Roost, we are a town cottage in the centre of Askrigg.

On street parking is available throughout the village.


We regret we are unable to accept pets.

Because of the amount of original beams and woodwork in place, The Roost is a non-smoking property.

Due to the age, character and original beams, the ceilings at The Roost are low.
