It’s finally February and it feels like spring is just around the corner now. The days are getting longer with lighter nights on the horizon and warmer weather. In fact, it’s just over eight weeks until the clocks go back!
Since we reopened in the new year, we have welcomed back lots of guests and bookings are now flooding in for spring breaks and summer holidays. The Yorkshire Dales is the perfect location for a spring break, with its rolling hills and countryside, welcoming villages, and plenty of wildlife. Spring is one of the most beautiful times of the year in Yorkshire, with daffodils sprouting, lambing getting underway and bluebells appearing in the forests.
February means Valentine’s too and we are offering a special deal for the weekend before Valentine’s Day with all bookings in our Studio Apartment Suites, and we’ll spoil you and your loved one with a bottle of prosecco and Valentine’s treats! We also have some fantastic discounts on prices for the 11th -14th of February as well as an extra special price if you book a 4-night stay in our apartment suite for guests arriving on the 11th and departing on the 15th.
Half term is also a very popular time in Askrigg for visitors and is often the first break for many after the winter months. We still have availability for the half term if you are looking for a fun, family break in the Dales. Why not visit the underground White Scar Caves at Ingleton or Bolton Abbey Estate during your stay with us? The snowdrops are now popping up everywhere too especially at local waterfalls Mill Gill Force and Whitfield Force where there is always a carpet of them.
The Annual Yorkshire Dales Dark Skies Festival also kicks off from February the 18th up until March 6th. This fantastic local festival has numerous events across the national parks including the Aysgarth Falls Planet Trail, Natures Night-time Marvels at Dales Countryside Museum, The Pie at Night at Fairhurst’s at Berry’s and much more.
Don’t forget to get your bookings in for any summer and bank holiday breaks to avoid disappointment as these are extremely busy times of the year for us. Hopefully, the weather stays kind to us throughout February and into March and we can’t wait to welcome more wonderful guests to our apartments!
