  • "We very much enjoyed our stay in the cottage."

    It was very comfortable and well equipped, and has a great location on the edge of the town. Fantastic walking and cycling from the doorstep! The only drawback was the lack of any outside space, since it fronts onto the road and the stream is directly against the rear wall. We had to keep our bikes inside and that was fine us, but might be more of an issue for others. Space for eating was also a bit limited. It was fine for 4 people but would have been more cramped if there had been 6 of us at the same time.

  • "Beautiful cottage we felt comfortable as soon as we walked in."

    Had everything we needed for a 4 night stay it was so clean and the rooms upstairs were alot bigger than expected and so tastefully decorated. Only thing I would suggest is that the listing should say there is an iron and ironing board in the cottage, we took our iron with us unnecessarily. And lack of recycling bin? Also listing wasn't clear that there was nowere to sit outside at the property there is no garden or yard. Absolutely loved our stay there. Would definitely recommend.

  • "Beautiful area with lovely walks from the house."

    The house is well equipped but I found the potato peeler tricky to use. You need to be fit to carry luggage up the stairs. The rubbish bin went missing which concerned us. I hope it doesn't cause the owners too much hassle to replace. We did our best with taking cardboard, bottles and plastic waste to the recycling bins at the car park. We did enjoy our family get together very much.

  • "We had a lovely stay in this cottage - it was clean, had great facilities but was still a beautiful, tastefully refurbished , quirky old building."

    It was within walking distance of the town of Sedbergh but it was far enough away to be quiet in the evenings. Amazingly comfortable beds! Great showers! Lots of walks nearby, lots of things to do. My parents are in their 80s and my dad found the stairs a bit tricky - it’s the only thing I might let customers know beforehand.

  • "The cottage was lovely."

    Modern and clean. We took our dog without realising that there was NO back garden. Some cleaning products and more toilet rolls would of been useful. Location was great and Sedburgh is a lovely town.

  • "This is a new letting in an old cottage which the owners have refurbished to a beautiful standard."

    We were honoured to be their first guests! The living room has THE most comfy sofas, plus a spare chair and big footstool, so plenty of room for us all to be cosy despite the weather (we had storms Dudley and Eunice while we were there), and the gas/log burner effect fire made it all the cosier. And it's a good size too. The bedrooms have super comfy beds and there's plenty of cupboard storage for your things. The bathrooms (one is ensuite) are modern and at the same time in keeping with the old cottage. The kitchen is well equipped - as we as a group are still wary of Covid we didn't want to eat out, and it had everything we needed to prepare all our meals. (there isn't a freezer compartment if you want to have ice cream, but there's 2 places to buy icecream in town) The owners welcomed us by text, and were very approachable. - I feel like we have new friends. They also emailed us a PDF with lots of info about the cottage and the area. Parking was no problem - room for at least one car outside and the others very nearby. It's a short walk (5 mins) into the Main Street of Sedbergh, which has independent shops, cafes and pubs/ eateries (next time!), and books for sale everywhere. The surrounding area with the Howgill Fells, access to the Yorkshire Dales or the Lake District, has everything for the outdoor enthusiast (one of our family did get out high each day despite the weather). There's also lovely riverside walks for the less fell-fit. 3 Settlebeck Cottages was exactly what we needed for our first full family stay together under one roof in 2 years, and hopefully we'll come back again.

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.
