    “Birks cottage is a great place to stay.”

    Location is perfect for Sedbergh, the Howgills, Dales and the Lakes. Many beautiful walks directly from the door. The cottage itself has everything you could need. The kitchen is well stocked, lounge welcoming after a long day walking and the bed is so comfortable. Would definitely recommend.

The property

Birks Cottage is an inviting stone-built cottage hidden within a cosy hamlet of houses, just outside the village of Sedbergh on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Refurbished to a high standard, this cottage provides a heart-warming base for both family and friends looking to see all that Cumbria has to offer.

Make yourself comfortable in the spacious sitting room, home to a plush sofa and a woodburning stove for those quite evenings beside the fire.

A well-appointed kitchen is situated at the rear and boasts an electric range cooker and gas hob, plus a stylish arrangement of units and plenty of space to prepare your meals.

The bedrooms include both a super king-size double and a king size double, which are beautifully presented in a neutral colour scheme and host a good amount of storage for your personal belongings.

The gleaming bathroom boasts a bath and shower over where you can freshen up.

Enjoy a cup of tea from your patio garden before heading into Sedbergh to find a number of historic houses, independent shops, tasty eateries and a local pub.

If walking is your passion then you are perfectly placed for exploring the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Lake District National Park, which is only a few miles from the cottage.

You may also wish to visit the village of Ingleton or the town of Kendal, both of which are popular choices amongst holidaymakers.

Birks cottage oozes traditional charm and character, making it the perfect location for your next family expedition.

About the location

SEDBERGH

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 and nearby Dent railway station is on the renowned Settle-Carlisle railway line. 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.
