Each property offers lovely bedrooms and a patio area with furniture, ideal for sitting out and relaxing especially during the month of July when the owners’ hay meadows are awash with rare and protected flowers, a spectacle to behold! Surrounded by rolling farmland, there are excellent footpaths from the doorstep to Cautley Spout, Britain’s highest waterfall, and on through dramatic Dentdale, while the local area is home to various wildlife including pheasants, badgers and red squirrels.

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.
