About Gainest Cottage

A traditional Yorkshire house dating back to the 17th Century, Gainest Cottage has been in the same family for 200 years! Formerly used by Mr Wainhouse to house his master dyers for his dye works factory, today the works no longer exist, but the impressive tower folly still stands and the local pub 50 yards down the road has been named after the great man himself.

Recently and lovingly restored, the cottage has been refurbished to reflect modern day living whilst still keeping all the character with the old beams, inglenook fireplace and stone walls, Gainest Cottage makes an ideal romantic retreat.

Cosy up in front of the fire together, lazy about in the super-king bed reading your favourite books or venture out and walk on the stunning Yorkshire moors and dales, Gainest Cottage really offers it all.
