For a truly tranquil escape, consider one of our Dentdale
cottages, nestling amid picturesque countryside where the South
Lakes meet the Yorkshire Dales. Named after the small village of
Dent, this unique and 'secret' dale makes up a tiny corner
of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is a paradise for walkers,
cyclists, fishermen and other outdoor enthusiasts. Step out from
your Dentdale cottage and marvel at the stunning scenery, rich in
wildlife, flora and fauna. Follow the Heritage Trail through the
wooded valley of Flintergill or enjoy a leisurely sunset stroll
along the banks of the Dee. Trek along the Dales Way and numerous
way-marked trails, or saddle up and cycle along the Yorkshire Dales
or Pennine Cycleways. Alternatively, admire the scenery from a
different angle, crossing spectacular viaducts aboard the
Settle-Carlisle Railway, described as 'England's most
Discover the hills and towns of the area including the gorgeous
village of Dent, renowned for terribly good knitters and a fine
real ale brewery. Follow the steps of Victorian geologist, Sedgwick
along a special riverside trail. Explore its cobbled streets
brimming with lovely shops and cosy tea rooms. And don't miss
the fascinating Heritage Centre. In such a sleepy dale, it comes as
no surprise to find a Meditation Centre here too, set in a restored
church and offering various courses and classes. Poets, painters,
musicians - they've all been inspired by Dentdale's charm
and magic. Isn't it time you joined them and booked a Dentdale
