  • "Excellent time, so peaceful, loved the fire starter pack."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean, warm & very comfortable with everything you need. A very relaxing time, lots of walks & nights around the fire. Will be returning.

  • "Tiplady cottage was well equipped, clean and warm."

    Much appreciated. Also, the owner generously provided milk, tea and biscuits. All equipment was in good working order and of good quality - as were the furnishings. I cannot fault this place, as it was also located in a quiet spot. We will be booking it again!

  • "Tiplady is a comfortable and cosy cottage in the centre a delightful village in a beautiful part of Yorkshire and we really enjoyed our week there."

    It is very welcoming, clean and well-eqipped with everything you might need - though we would have appreciated an ice tray for the G&Ts and fluffier pillows, and we think towel rails in the bedrooms would be useful as there is little space in the bathroom. The shower and WiFi were occasionally temperamental and there is little WiFi coverage in the dining area. The parking space was difficult to manoeuvre into, but there were plenty of parking spaces very close by. We really appreciated the box of walk books and local information and we really enjoyed playing the Pub Quiz game! Thank you - we would definitely recommend this cottage to others and return to it ourselves.

  • "Excellent property which makes good use of space."

    The quality of the fixtures and fittings is exceptional without being ostentatious. The setting is very pleasant too in a small row of terraced cottages in an unspoiled village. The single bathroom is a touch confined if you like contemplating life from the throne. The dedicated parking space is a bit tight due to cars parked opposite, tho my Astra had no problem. Anyway there's other parking nearby. I had a lovely stay. Thanks!

  • "This property is lovely."

    The location is fab, close to Hawes, Askrigg and Leyburn. Facilities in the cottage are great. Very clean and comfortable. Owner is attentive. Lots of little walks on the doorstep. Lovely park for the kids. Tearoom in the village is amazing, lovely full English breakfast and home made scones/cakes. Fish and chip van visits village every Tuesday. Would recommend this property. It’s my second visit in 6 months.

  • "A lovely, clean, well-maintained cottage with a spacious main bedroom overlooking the garden."

    Very nice garden area too with table and chairs under pretty clematis covered gazebo. Everything we needed for a comfortable stay was provided. Excellent information booklet provided by the owners with clear instructions on how to operate things like heating system. In a pleasant village, within the beautiful surroundings of the Yorkshire Dales. Very nice cafe just around the corner overlooking the village green. We really enjoyed our stay and would certainly return.

  • "Tiplady cottage is a home from home."

    It is very comfortable and clean. Every thing is well presented and nothing has been forgotten, right down to the boot shelf. The easy to follow instructions for all appliances is very helpful. The cottage was nice and warm and the owners were generous with the heating (this is not always the case). The area is idyllic and we will defiantly be making a return visit.

  • "Lovely clean cottage and lounge so cosy with log fire."

    Need more instructions re using heating and hot water, heating didn’t warm up until 7 o’clock. Appliance instructions need to be noted in booklet. Microwave complicated to work out how to use. Shame toilet is on ground floor. Otherwise a great and comfortable. Place to stay.

    Thank you Alan and for your kind personal email. We’re really sorry it wasn’t as easy as it could have been to get things up and running and we do like to know about it so that others can feel nice and warm as soon as they arrive. We are going to put some “quick start” instructions in a prominent place so future guests can get everything switched on quickly when they arrive. I’m pleased you still managed to enjoy your stay and thank you for the feedback. Property Owner

The property

Hawes 4 miles.

Situated in the picturesque village of Bainbridge in the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park is Tiplady Cottage, a characterful holiday home, perfect for couples, friends or a small family.

With aa quaint study, and an abundance of walking and cycling opportunities in the area and from the door, this welcoming cottage is ideal for a delightful break at any time of year.

As you arrive and step into the sitting room, the wooden beam ceiling boasts a traditional feel, with a warm colour scheme inviting you to relax in front of the fire with a good book or a film on TV.

From here, make your way to the kitchen to rustle up a hearty meal for the group to enjoy at the dining table as you toast to a wonderful break with loved ones.

Upstairs, find a study area, perfect for catching up on emails or escaping for a moment of peace.

When sleep calls, choose from two well-presented bedrooms, including a king-size bedroom with hardwood floor and a twin bedroom, each with the same homely and traditional feel that carries throughout the cottage.

Freshen up in the mornings in the bathroom, which is back on the ground floor and offers both a bath and a shower over for your preference.

Outside, admire the garden's mature plants and shrubbery with a hot cup of coffee in the morning, or a glass of wine in the warmer evenings.

When you need a break from cooking, local restaurants are just a stroll away, such as the Yorbridge House Hotel and the Rose and Crown Hotel on the village green.

Days out for any type of traveller can be enjoyed in the area․ There are walks to suit everyone straight from the door while the more adventurous may wish to continue on upwards to enjoy the rolling hills and higher terrain․ It's only a short drive to Askrigg or Aysgarth Falls for more days out and a trip to the glacial lake at Semerwater is a must.

It's only a few miles to Hawes where you really should visit the cheese factory and history buffs may enjoy an afternoon at Dales Countryside Museum, while the walkers of the group may want to explore the cascading waters of Aysgill Force and Hardraw Force Waterfall.

Further afield, a fascinating day can be had at The Forbidden Corner, a popular tourist attraction with tunnels and chambers nestled within a four-acre garden, or drive further through the heart of the Dales to visit Ribblehead, Malham or Wharfdale.

With its traditional feel and convenient location Tiplady Cottage is a delightful dwelling for a lovely break in the picture-perfect Yorkshire Dales.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Leyburn 16 miles.

Hawes is a popular market town in the Richmondshire district of North Yorkshire and is regarded as one of the honeypot tourist attractions of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Standing between Buttertubs and Fleet Moss, the town is an excellent centre for walking and touring Wensleydale and the adjoining dales of Swaledale, Cotterdale, Dentdale, Garsdale, Wharfedale and Chapel-le-Dale. Take a walk around the Hawes Town Trail, Millennium Walk, Pennine Way or along the River Ure, which is nearby. In 1998 Hawes was awarded the English Tourist Board Silver Award for the "Best Day Trip Out". Modern traffic has long replaced coaches and horse drawn wagons along its narrow streets, but market day (Tuesdays) in Hawes is as busy as ever, with a farmers’ auction attracting sheep farmers from all over the north of England. Traditional shops, cafés and inns now cater for a variety of Dales visitors as well as the local community. The award-winning Wensleydale Creamery, made famous by the animated Wallace and Grommit films, is now open to visitors so that they can see the famous cheese being made and sample the end product in a welcoming café. In the old station yard you will find the busy National Park Centre and Dales Countryside Museum. The Museum is home to the magnificent collection of Dales artefacts by the two great Dales historians and writers, Marie Hartley and Joan Ingilby.
