Hi here which anvil? Anvil Hall, Blacksmiths Cottage or The Blacksmiths shop? They are all close by Anvil Hall 1/2 a mile (walkable depending on footwear !) the other two 5-7 mins max walking - however we do have our own taxi company so a lift could be arranged for you ! Hope this is helpful to you !
