Skeldale House from ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ fame brought back to life

Filed under: General 

THE building which became famous as Skeldale House in the BBC television series All Creatures Great and Small, has opened to the public for the first time.

The instantly recognisable, stone-built Wensleydale building became known to viewers around the world as the location for the veterinary practice where character James Herriot worked.

Until two years ago the property in Askrigg, North Yorkshire, was used by Broadacres Housing Association as a home for vulnerable adults.

But now it has reopened as a luxury bed and breakfast.

Read more about the transformation.

  2. I would like to read the James Herriot books on my YouTube channel BeverleyVolfie.
    Presently I am reading The Laura Ingalls Wilder Novels.
    I Live in Canada are these books public domain so I can share them by reading them aloud?
    Sincerely Bev

  4. Hello! I am looking for the name of the pattern of the china set that was used in the series ….. there’s a really good pic in the episode “Charity Begins at Home”. Could you tell me the name of the pattern please? Thank you . I would like to buy the set for my home.

  6. Travelling from Australia I’ve visited all those iconic ACGandS sites in the Dales over period of 4 weeks covering 2 years (2014 & 2016). It’s every bit as captivating and beautiful as the series depicts. It was an incredibly romantic time for myself and my wife. We have also stayed in Skeldale House with Keith and Lisa the owners and can thoroughly reccommend it and the gorgeous town of Askrigg (Darrowby) to all readers.

  8. Does anyone know which book and chapter James Herriot describes staying for breakfast somewhere and being served a big piece of fat?
