Moor Rigg Barn is a two-bedroom cottage set on the western edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park with easy access to both Yorkshire Dales and The English Lake District. Moor Rigg building consists of Moor Rigg at one end, Moor Rigg Cottage in the middle and Moor Rigg Barn at the end furthest from the single track road that runs up the valley.
Moor Rigg Barn has been running as a Dales self-catering holiday cottage since 2009 and we have been steadily improving facilities whilst trying hard to retain the original rustic feel of the cottage.
The cottage is surrounded by wild moorland and is an ideal get-away from the hubbub of modern life. As yet there is no mobile or Internet service at the cottage but the landline phone is in full operation.
Moor Rigg is mentioned in one of Alfred Wainwright’s Walks on the Howgill Fells. The nearby Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge comprises Pen-y-ghent 694m (2277ft), Whernside 736m (2415ft) and Ingleborough 723m (2372ft). It is one of the oldest established walks in the UK which every year attracts teams of Charity walkers from across the UK.
