Kings Arms, Askrigg is part of the Holiday Property Bond portfolio offering exclusive access to over 1,400 properties to its 42,000 investors across more than 30 locations. You can find out more about Kings Arms, Askrigg below, but first a brief explanation about the Holiday Property Bond.

A. How can I holiday better?

Invest from £5,000 in the Holiday Property Bond for exclusive access to a portfolio of over 1,400 top quality villas, cottages and apartments in over 30 locations across the UK and Europe. For each £1 invested you will receive one Holiday Point each year which you can use to book the properties. And when staying in them you do not pay a commercial rent, just a no-profit user charge covering actual running, maintenance and refurbishment costs. This charge is level throughout the year so there are no high season premiums. For a studio the charge averages about £315 a week, for a two bedroom property around £480 a week. Larger properties are also available. This no-profit user charge is only payable when you want to go on holiday. Your only ongoing commitment is a quarterly fee of just over £30 – that is around £130 a year.

B. Will there be more properties in the future?

As we attract more investors the more properties we will add to the portfolio – increasing your holiday choice still further.

C. How long can I holiday with HPB?

For life if you wish – the holiday benefits last as long as you hold the Bond. In due course you can pass it and the holiday benefits to your children and grandchildren, as many of our earlier investors have already done. If, however, at some point you and your family no longer wish to holiday with us you can surrender your Bond back to the company after two years or more (subject to deferral in exceptional circumstances). You will not get back the full amount you invested, although we would hope that you will have had some wonderful holidays. What you do get back will reflect initial charges (25%) taken before your money is invested in the HPB fund of holiday properties and securities. The fund itself also pays annual charges of around 2.5% and other overheads. The value of the fund’s properties and securities can also go up or down and so, like most investments, your capital is at risk.

The Kings Arms hotel is located in Askrigg, Wensleydale, at the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park which spans 1,354 square miles of glorious countryside. It dates back to 1760 and provides comfortable, modern en-suite holiday accommodation. The Kings Arms is familiar to many people as The Drovers, the inn that featured in the TV series All Creatures Great and Small.

Whether you're going away to relax or have fun, the National Park is the perfect place to do both. A wonderful range of wildlife lives here and the hill country is just begging to be explored on-foot.

Try one of more than 140 guided walks

Those planning a walking holiday will be spoilt for choice, as there are more than 140 guided walks to enjoy in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Up for a challenge? Then you may want to try tackling one (or all) of the Three Peaks: Pen-y-Ghent, Ingleborough or Whernside.

Of course, there's lots more to do and see in the National Park. Hundreds of events run throughout the year, ranging from traditional farming shows and beer festivals, to bat walks and stream dipping. There's something for all the family to enjoy.

Go shopping in Harrogate

Shopaholics will love Harrogate, which has a wide selection of boutique and designer stores, as well as the usual high street favourites. Recover from all that retail therapy at the famous Bettys Café, which serves delicious Swiss confectionery and a huge range of teas and coffees.

If you have time, the Royal Pump Room Museum offers a fascinating glimpse into this spa town's past, and is well worth a visit.

Go birdwatching in Wensleydale

It may be most well-known for its cheese, but Wensleydale is also home to many species of birds. In particular, look out for some impressive birds of prey, including the kestrel and peregrine falcon. We recommend picking up one of the Yorkshire Dales Bird Guides, which share some great suggestions for birdwatching activities.

Enjoy a day out in Hawes

This bustling market town has lots to offer, including the Dales Countryside Museum and that scrumptious Wensleydale cheese we mentioned earlier. We recommend you visit on a Tuesday, as that's market day.

If you fancy stretching your legs, go for a stroll around the Hawes Town Trail or Millennium Way. Afterwards, relax in one of the many delightful restaurants, cafés or pubs.

See the beautiful Aysgarth Falls

Film fans may recognise Aysgarth Falls from the motion picture Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. This beautiful stretch of water is known for its triple flight of waterfalls. On a warm, sunny day, the riverside walk which takes you past all three waterfalls, is an absolute pleasure. The most impressive, though, is Hardraw Force, the highest single-drop waterfall in England.
