Welcome to Anvil Cottage

Welcome to Anvil Cottage, our home in Gunnerside, Swaledale, the most northerly of the Yorkshire Dales. This site is for the information of any visitors to Anvil Cottage, but others visiting Swaledale may also find some useful information. It also points to our website and blog for Pear House, a derelict house with field above Gunnerside where we have planted a small wood (in November 2010) and traditional orchard (in March 2012). If you are in the area and have an interest in the progress of the wood at Pear House, you are welcome to visit the field and check how the trees are faring, and whether we are winning or losing in our battles against the rabbits.
