If you are looking to enjoy the Yorkshire Dales National Park, then Bainbridge enjoys the perfect location. Situated in the heart of the park, this small village possesses a wealth of charm and character ideal for a self-catering holiday break. The village has all the essentials you need during your stay, a small village shop, local butchers, a lovely choice of tea rooms to try and the wonderful Rose and Crown Inn, one of Yorkshire’s oldest hotels, where you can relax by the fire after a long day. For a greater range of shops, the market town of Hawes, home of the famous Wensleydale cheese, is just 5 minutes away by car.
The village is located by the River Bain, and while it may be the shortest river in England, it’s still perfect for a countryside stroll. Alternatively, why not take a walk up to the east of of the village where you’ll find the remains of a roman fort. Some great places to visit in the area include the Dales Countryside Museum in Hawes, Aysgarth Falls, Bolton Castle and the Forbidden Corner in Leyburn.
