The property is very comfortable, and well equipped with good quality furnishing and fittings. The owners are very helpful and friendly. The animals they keep on the farm are a delight. The weather was a little on the wet side whilst we were there but there is plenty to do nearby and we had an excellent holiday.

This holiday cottage is quite superb with all the amenities that one could wish for, the mere fact that it was our second visit to Anvil cottage speaks volumes. The owners are delightful people, very friendly and where nothing is too much of a problem.

We had a wonderful relaxing week at Anvil Cottage. The Cottage is beautifully presented with all the facilities you could want. Andy & Lindsay were ideal hosts and made us feel very welcome. We would defiantly recommend Anvil Cottage as a perfect base to explore the Yorkshire Dales and surrounding area.

Anvil Cottage was just what we needed for a long weekend, perfectly peaceful and relaxing. The attention to detail has been incredible and the owners make you feel so welcome, delicious home made bread, the most fabulous eggs, jam, butter and milk were left for us (we didnt unpack before taking slices off the warm loaf!). The setting Anvil Cottage Read moreis in is just fabulous and you are surrounded by chickens, horses, cats and dogs. Add to that a stunning hare sitting on the drive one morning, curlews calling in the mist over the fields and stunning Yorkshire countryside what more could you ask for? Perfect. Hide

We really enjoyed our one week stay in Anvil Cottage. Weve stayed in numerous cottages over the past years and our hosts were the best hosts by far. They are very welcoming and friendly. Youd feel you knew them years ago. The cottage has lovely surroundings if you feel youd rather walk locally. It is also well situated if you want to travel to YorkRead moreshire dales hot spots as well as the close by cities and towns such as York, Harrogate, Ripon and Skipton. The cottage is very cosy and we enjoyed lighting the fire in the evening. The chickens on the door step are a delight in the morning! The cottage is very well equipped with plenty of towels and consumables and our hosts were kind enough to provide the essentials like eggs, milk, butter and bread for our breakfast. They were also kind enough to put up a Cheristmas tree for our Christmas stay. Overall a really pleasant and memorable stay in Yorkshire. Thank you to our kind hosts. We will definitely be visiting again. Hide

This is a superb cottage with excellent amenities. Extremely comfortable and beautifully furnished one can tell that a lot of thought has gone into providing those little extra touches that make ones stay memorable. Situated in the most glorious part of the Dales, the cottage has panoramic views of the most lovely countryside, an idyllic hideawayRead more away from the hustle and bustle. Ideally situated also for visiting many of the market towns, abbeys and other places to of interest, I cannot recommend this property highly enough.
