The property

A picturesque, 200-year old, stone-built detached cottage, overlooking the village green in the centre of the pretty Dales village of Bainbridge.

Fully renovated by the current owners, this historic property is full of character and charm, and seamlessly combines many of the original features, including old ceiling beams and flagged flooring with luxurious modern touches to provide a first class holiday home.

This is a great space and location for a romantic break, somewhere to invite friends along to or simply enjoy a family break.

The ground floor features a delightful sitting room with stylish leather furnishings, a cosy inset woodburning stove, Yorkshire stone flooring and a lovely set of ceiling beams, totally at home in a cottage of this style and grand old age.

A modern well-equipped kitchen and a cosy dining room ensure that guests have a great place to enjoy evening meals before curling up by the fire and making the most of this wonderful cottage.

The main bedroom features a king-size bed and a modern en-suite with spacious walk-in shower, whilst the second bedroom offers twin beds, and access to a lovely bathroom.

Outside, the south-facing frontage has a lovely bench to relax and soak up the sunshine, and to the side of the property is a small enclosed yard, suitable for sitting out and enjoying the view out across the village green.

There is fantastic countryside to all sides, with Wensleydale often described as one of the most beautiful of the Yorkshire Dales.

The walks from the doorstep are not to be missed, and guests can enjoy a circular walk to the surrounding villages, with many half-way watering holes scattered along the way!

Historic and sightseeing opportunities abound from the cottage, with the castles at Bolton and Middleham nearby, as well as to Hardraw Force, England's highest single drop waterfall.

This cottage is an ideal getaway for exploring Wensleydale and Swaledale; a first-class holiday home, with all the character and charm of a 'reight proper' Dales cottage.

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.
