Here's the FR monolingual definition given by GDT, which does not, however, suggest a translaton:

baille à mouillage n. f.

Définition :
Espace clos compris souvent dans le coqueron avant et permettant le stockage de la chaîne et, sur les petits bateaux, de l'ancre.

In that case, 'anchor locker' is probably the best bet, UNLESS it is made clear elsewhere that there is separate stowage for the anchor itself.
