    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bill's cottage in Bainbridge. This was a lovely, clean, well equipped and thought out cottage in a wonderful setting which was well located for exploring this part of the northern Yorkshire Dales. Stephanie, the owner, was very helpful in our initial 'access' conversation about the cottage and in providing local information. She also checked with us whilst we were there that we were happy and enjoying our stay with our needs being met. We initially struggled with the technology of a new tv set in the property but that was quickly resolved for us when we raised it. Lovely TV although we did not need to use many of the extra features available on it. Perhaps more of an ' idiots guide' could be left for future foolproofing the use of this TV. Don't like Sykes new website with the cottage reference search down the bottom and the ' hard sell' messages (one booked two minutes ago etc) when you are looking at a cottage online.Also popups adverst when looking at other sites reminding us of properties we had booked.

About the location


Hawes 4 miles.

The picturesque Wensleydale village of Bainbridge is situated in truly beautiful countryside just a mile and a half from Askrigg, known to millions as Darrowby in James Herriot's "All Creatures Great and Small", and four miles from the market town of Hawes, the home of Wensleydale cheese. Bainbridge boasts an extensive village green, which comes with its own set of stocks. This is an excellent holiday location for walkers, offering a great base from which to explore both Wensleydale and Swaledale, with beauty spots in the area including Aysgarth Falls, Semerwater, castles at both Castle Bolton and Middleham and of course, Hardraw Force - England's highest single, unbroken, drop waterfall at 99ft! There are also lots of interesting market towns and villages to visit, including Leyburn and Middleham, to name just a couple.
