This semi-detached cottage situated in the village of Bainbridge, near Hawes sleeps four people in two bedrooms.

Anvil Barn is a wonderful semi-detached, stone-built cottage located in the village of Bainbridge, four miles from Hawes in the Yorkshire Dales Natonal Park. This cottage sleeps four people in two ground floor bedrooms, consisting of one double and one twin, as well as a ground floor bathroom. On the first floor is an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area with multi-fuel stove, and outside there's off road parking for one car. A number of walks and stunning attractions in the area makes Anvil Barn a great place to stay.


This is a delightful cottage, well-equipped, and in a lovely little village. The village has a nice pub only 5mins away (dog friendly, food and even a pool table), and a tea shop for lunches literally round the corner. Lovely cakes there. If you do take a dog, be aware there is no garden, or yard. It's very cosy, has a very warm log burner - though wood is limited, you'll need to buy more if you want to rely on it for your warmth. The central heating warms up the place very well, however. There was a strange distant thumping noise we heard one night, and finally worked out it was people playing badminton in the adjoining local village hall! But it wasn't enough to bother us. It is well situated for local walks, and there are many nearby villages to visit. Hawes is only 4 miles down the road, and has a great many pubs to dine at. We tried The Crown, which was super for food, and had a nice selection of beers. Also dog friendly. Perhaps too dog friendly! The only thing that let this cottage down is the fact that it has no wifi. This wouldn't usually be a big issue, however there is also no phone reception in the cottage, and only barely one bar at a very particular spot in the village. There is also, crucially no landline - we felt that this presented all-in-all a bit of a safety issue if there had been an emergency. We would have needed to knock on doors for access to a phone, or run to the other end of the village for the payphone. Given the lack of all three, we feel the website should say as much to any potential visitors - it just didn't occur to us that no mention of wifi, meant no wifi! There is however some sky TV... and a DVD player. And some interesting jigsaws, and lots of books. And you should definitely go to the fish and chip van that comes round every weds. With wifi this would have been a 5 star review.

Anvil Barn was, on the whole was fantastic.
Mr Brookshaw

The location of Anvil Barn is perfect to access other places e.g. Hawes, Asygarth etc. The property itself was perfect - you couldn't ask for more! It's a home away from home and has everything you need - cannot fault it and would definitely return again.
Mrs Dhaliwal

A very well equipped cottage in a lovely location, it was spotlessly clean.
Mrs Polwarth

The cottage was perfect, the surrounding countryside lovely, lovely villages within easy reach.
