  • "Fantastic place to stay ,absolutely stunning view ."

  • "We had a lovely stay helped by good weather ."

    David and Kate are lovely, helpful hosts. The Bothy is small but well equipped and maintained. There are many walks straight out of the front door, lovely chippy and we spent many a pleasant hour in the local pubs. Easily reached off the M6 so we also popped over to the other side of the Lakes, in Grizedale in an hour. We would go back.

  • "The Bothy was extremely clean, with lots of extra welcoming touches, in an excellent location and had very helpful owners."

    There were lots of walks right from the front door. Would definitely recommend and would stay again.

  • "The Bothy was like a hideaway - very discrete despite being in the owner’s garden."

    We enjoyed the peace and quiet and loved waking up to changing view’s of the fell as the weather varied. For those who don’t do Nespresso, there is a cafetière. There are several short walks accessible from the Bothy, as well as plenty for the more serious walker. Sedbergh itself has all you need. We enjoyed the outdoor barbecue at The Bull, fish and chips from the chip shop, and ice cream from the sweet shop.

  • "We had a great week at The Bothy while waiting to move into our new home in the Lake District."

    For us it was not a holiday as such but rather a base to rest and work from for the week. We were made to feel right at home. The gardens are so peaceful and we enjoyed some short walks around the town. Plenty of restaurants and options for dining out in walking distance was also convenient. Thanks for the very kind hospitality.

  • "We loved staying at the Bothy very comfortable with everything we needed."

    We were very lucky with such good weather. Enjoyed sitting in our private area of the garden late afternoon after returning from our day out. Wonderful view from the Bothy. Didn't need to go far for interesting walks & fantastic scenery. Enjoyed a couple of good meals at the Dalesman a short walk away. Returned home feeling very relaxed hope we can return there another time.

  • "Lovely cottage and location very clean and well equipped,had a nice bottle of wine,and a pint of milk left for us along with tea coffee and sugar, only downside was open windows on 3sides really could do with either blinds or nets for a bit of privacy apart from that lovely place to stay."

  • "Sykes Cottages need to publish reviews of individual properties like just about every other website/agency out there."

    Regarding this property, a minor issue is the lack of a blind in the front room; given that the property is in the garden of the owner (misleadingly called they grounds’ in the listing), I’m sure many prospective renters would appreciate a little more privacy.

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 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.
