High Blean B&B in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales

Green & Pleasant

High Blean is situated in quiet the hamlet of the same name. The house, dating back to 1674, nestles on the southside of Raydale one of the most peaceful and tranquil areas of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Raydale is also the home to Semer Water the largest glacial lake in North Yorkshire. The house sits 165 feet above the valley floor, which affords magnificent views over Semer Water from the house and garden.

Sit and smell the mint and roses!

Take a while to sit and smell the Corsican mint underfoot and the roses by the door.

High Blean is just under 4 mile outside the village of Askrigg, which can be confusing given our postal address is Askrigg, and 5 mile from Hawes.

Built in 1674 High Blean is an old Yorkshire Long House that retains many original features, and offers two comfortable good sized en-suite rooms. One of which can be made up as a twin. Each room has its own flat screen TV, hair-dryer and tea & coffee making facilities. We are an ideal location for those seeking a quiet and peaceful B&B in the Yorkshire Dales.
