    • “We had a fantastic bank holiday break here. The cottage is very clean and spacious and located in the centre of the village, as well as with in easy reach of some brilliant walks. Everyone we met was very friendly and helpful. Local food outlets were great and I had the best Sunday lunch I've had in a long time. I am looking forward to a return visit!!!”

    • “family holiday in a charming old cottage”

    • “Stayed in cottage with family for one week. The cottage has everything you would need and only 5 miles from the motorway. The cottage is old and full of character and I would recommend it for a stay. The only bad point of the cottage was the stained and ripped bed sheet in the attic bedroom which I would not have slept on but did find another one in the cupboard but really should be replaced. The cottage is also close to all the attractions in the lake district and the dales. There is a supermarket and little shops nearby and was very quite. We tried the indian takeaway nearby which was good and the chinese takeaway which was pretty bad but maybe it was an off night,”

    • “Very comfortable and lovely area.”

    • “The cottage is on 3 levels, you have a games room and boot room on the ground floor with table top table tennis, board games, jigsaws and a wii with games. The boot room has the washing machine which worked fine. The first floor has the kitchen, bathroom, one bedroom that can be a twin for kids or put together to be a king size. There is a little dining area that you can use for working at a table if needed. There are maps and guides to local attractions in that area. The kitchen has a dishwasher that is very handy and you get some welcome nibbles and wine which was a nice touch. The kitchen is very well equipped with utensils, oven, hob and microwave and plenty of glasses, cups, mugs, plates etc so no need to bring your own. The master bedroom on the second floor is en-suite and very spacious. with plenty of storage space. The only niggles were a noisy saniflow toilet and a skylight with no curtain or blind which may not suit late risers! The wifi internet access is good with up to 16Mb speeds. The area is great for walkers. There is a nice chippy a few yards away, a chinese takeaway (had better) and an Indian restaurant and takeaway that we did not try. There is a spar a few minutes walk from the cottage.”

    • “An excellent property, a home away from home where all needs were catered for. The welcome pack was a great surprise. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.”

    Mrs Marney, Manchester, April 2015

    • “A very comfortable spacious property, suited all age groups. Kitchen was well stocked. It was really welcoming arriving to Christmas lights up the stairs and landing and the living room for our Christmas holiday. Use of the boot room following long walks a bonus.”

    Mr Owen, Sedbergh, December 2014

    • “We enjoyed the décor and feel of the sitting room. A good cottage overall with a good selection of games and high quality kitchen ware. We liked Sedbergh as a location, direct walking on the fells and by the river, but also good shops and restaurants.”

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.
