Birks Farm Cottages

Sedbergh 2 miles. Two 17th Century Grade II listed barn conversions, set on the owners' working farm within the Dales National Park, just 2 miles from Sedbergh, a new book town, and within easy reach of The Lake District. Knott View and Brant View boast outstanding views of the valley and dramatic Howgill Fells and have been lovingly restored to provide spacious, comfortable accommodation. Each property offers lovely bedrooms and a patio area with furniture, ideal for sitting out and relaxing especially during the month of July when the owners’ hay meadows are awash with rare and protected flowers, a spectacle to behold! Surrounded by rolling farmland, there are excellent footpaths from the doorstep to Cautley Spout, Britain’s highest waterfall, and on through dramatic Dentdale, while the local area is home to various wildlife including pheasants and badgers. With the Farfield Mill Arts and Heritage Centre and the towns of Hawes and Dent all within easy reach, these lovely properties make an ideal base in which to relax and unwind and from which to tour both the Lakes and Dales at any time of the year.

    • “Lovely cottage in the middle of stunning countryside..Went with two 5yr olds and there was plenty of things to go to within a 45min drive of the cottage. Also walks in the surrounding area can be done from the front door of the cottage. The farm itself was child friendly, the kids particularly loved playing with the dogs. We are planning to go back again next year.”

    • “i would without a doubt highly recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing, enjoyable get away to stay in this modern, yet traditional barn conversion ( with views to die for.) The accomadation is conceniently situated between the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Lake District.Me and my family managed to fit in several visitations which was only made possible b the owners of the holiday cottages as they supplied the cottage with many booklets and leaflets on recommeneded, top notch places to go! Although we visited many local places, we did enjoy staying on the farm as there was 3 very friendly, entertaining sheepdogs keen to play and entertain ou young children! There was also hens and turkeys roaming around, plus lots of gambling lambs! Our children really did get a look into what a traditional farm is like and they absoloutley loved it! We stayed for a week, me, my wife and our two kids and not one of us wanted to leave! The bedrooms were clean, modern and well equiped with all the necessities! The bathroom, kitchen, living room and dining room were all lovely! On a whole, the holiday cottage was a delightful place to stay and so was the other holiday cottage which was next door!The holiday cottage is surrounded by breath taking views and i recomend the cottages to anyone, families, couples, large goups of friends, anyone! We shall hope to go back next year as it is one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in.”

    • “It was fantastic. Very nice owners, great accomodation and the view was great!! The house had everyting you need, a well equiped kitchen and very nice beds. Bedlinnen and towels are included and there is a washingmachine (and dryer) Nearby are the shops and in the cottage are a lot of brochures and maps of things to do. And there is a lot to do and to see. It is not far from the Lake District and James Herriot "country" I think I will come back again.”

    • “The cottage is easy to find, even in the dark and on a rainy night! Yes, up a private hill and what a view! It is a great place to stay if you want to reach the Lakes and the Dales at equal driving distance. The cottage is very well kept and the surroundings are safe for young teenagers, even to play (with the very friendly dogs).”

    • “We received a warm welcome as soon as we arrived and were shown around both lovely cottages by the friendly owner. The smaller cottage is great for small families and the larger of the two is large enough to accomodate the whole party for meals and getting together if, like us, you take both cottages. There are excellent walks around Sedburgh and Kendal is only a 30 minutes drive away. Bookworms will enjoy a visit to the Town of Sedburgh which has many specialist bookshops. These cottages are both super places from which to explore this beautiful part of the world.”

About the location


Kendal 12 miles; Hawes 15 miles.

Sedbergh (pronounced Sed-Ber), an ancient market town in northern Dentdale, is situated just inside the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The town, with its narrow streets, little shops, traditional pubs, famous school dating back to 1525 and its 12th century church, has an olde worlde atmosphere. Dentdale, the jewel of the Yorkshire Dales with its rolling hills and dry stone walls, stretches 14 miles from the windswept moors below Whernside to the confluence of the Rivers Dee and Rawthey. At the centre of the dale is Dent, with its cobbled streets, which has existed since Norman times. There are three golf courses nearby, as well as tennis, riding, & fishing, and the area is a walker’s and cyclist's paradise. This, together with the tranquillity of the surrounding valleys and the two National Parks, makes an ideal year-round holiday destination.
