About the location
Kendal 12 miles; Hawes 15 miles.
Sedbergh (pronounced Sed-Ber), an ancient market town in northern Dentdale, is 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 paradise. This, together with the tranquillity of the surrounding valleys and the two National Parks, makes an ideal year-round holiday destination.
