The property

A lovely, mid-terrace stone cottage perfectly located in the centre of the market town of Sedbergh, in the heart of the beautiful Howgill Fells.

This charming cottage has been renovated to a good standard to provide ideal holiday accommodation in this wonderful and interesting old town.

Upstairs, the cottage boasts a main bedroom with a delightful window seat, a spacious twin bedroom, and a modern bathroom with a feature bath.

Prepare family meals in the well-equipped kitchen featuring granite worktops, and relax in the stylish sitting room with its modern furnishings, dining area, and cosy gas woodburner-effect stove.

On warm summer days, venture outside to the private patio to the rear, an ideal place to sit, relax and read a good book while soaking up the sunshine.

From the doorstep, all the amenities of the town are immediately on hand.

From excellent restaurants, bars and shops, to an award-winning butcher and the wonderful book shops that the town is famed for, there will be something for everyone to enjoy!

Sedbergh nestles at the foot of the beautifully unspoilt Howgills, much admired by the famous Lakeland explorer and writer, Alfred Wainwright.

Just 50 yards from the cottage, is the start of some of the finest walks in Lakeland including the walk to the top of Winder and the circular walk taking in The Calf and Cautley Spout, returning via the river; this is probably one of the finest walks in this entire area.

Fill your days discovering the many interesting places this area has to offer; visit Farfield Mill, the picturesque village of Dent, and the renowned Ingleton Waterfalls.

Kendal and Kirkby Lonsdale are just a 20 minute car journey away, and this cottage is perfectly located on the doorstep of the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District National Parks.

About the location


Kendal 12 miles; Hawes 15 miles.

Sedbergh (pronounced Sed-Ber), set at the foot of the dramatic and wild Howgill Fells, is an ancient market town in northern Dentdale. Sedbergh is situated just inside the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is only 12 miles from the Lake District 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. Leading from Sedbergh is Dentdale, the jewel of the Yorkshire Dales with its rolling hills and dry stone walls, stretching 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, and fishing, and the area is a paradise for walkers, ramblers, runners and cyclists. This, together with the tranquillity of the surrounding valleys, the two National Parks and it being England's book town, makes an ideal year-round holiday destination.
