    Well situated for exploring both the Yorkshire Dales and the lake district. Lily and Alan made us feel very welcome while affording us our privacy.

  • "Very amiable and attentive owners ready to assist with any problems - and in this cottage there shouldn't be any!"

    Perfect location only 8 miles from the M6. Lake District (Windermere), Yorkshire Dales (Hawes) and Morecambe Bay all within an easy hours drive and for the ramblers England's highest cascade waterfall Cautley Spout, less than 2 miles from the cottage, provides some challenging walking.

  • "What an absolute gem I found when booking Knott Lodge."

    It is everything and more you could ever want for a stay away from home I had chosen to stay here as my husband is an amputee and the cottage had a wet room and was all on one level so was just perfect When we arrived we were met by the owner Lily who is a very friendly and charming lady. When she showed us into the cottage it was bigger than I had thought from seeing the photos with everything you could possibly want. A well equipped kitchen, comfortable sofa and chairs with a view over the hills you could just look at all day! The bedroom had a very comfortable super king size bed with plenty of storage for clothes. The wet room has a glorious shower with plentiful hot water and underfloor heating which was superb in drying the floor quickly This is an ideal location for exploring the Lake District as well as relaxing and just enjoying the surroundings that Lily and her husband Alan provides And added bonus of having their sheepdogs to pet

  • "Knots Lodge is a long very barn conversion in a beautiful setting with stunning views."

    We chose this cottage as my husband has limited mobility. All areas were wheelchair accessible and the wet room was fully equipped. The cottage is comfortable and has everything you need for two people. The large windows in the lounge allow you to enjoy tye beautiful view, and on the nice days there is a large terrace where you can sit and enjoy the surrounding area. The hosts Lily and Alan are amazing people and nothing is too much trouble for them. This is a lovely cottage for both able and disabled people to enjoy peace and tranquility. There are also lots of lovely places to visit not too far away. We hope to return next year.

  • "On arrival we were presented with a cottage which went beyond our expectations of size and facilities for both abled and disabled guests."

    The open plan throughout with a doorway to a large wet room is an ideal situation, the kitchen, dining and sitting areas are ideal for two people with plenty of room to spare. The cottage is situated at the top of a lane from the main road and has a view of the hills which you will not forget. Hosts Lily and Alan are great hosts and are at hand if required. The cottage is heated by underfloor heating throughout but was not required during our stay everything was in perfect order for our stay and once you visit you will want to return for a very relaxing break.

The property

A recently renovated, stone built, one bedroom conversion of former farm buildings situated on the owners' working farm within the Dales National Park.

A modern, contemporary holiday home set out over one floor with an open plan design to take advantage of the magnificent views across the Howgill Fells.

With large patio doors giving open and uninterrupted views, the spacious living area takes up the main area with a lovely sitting area designed to enjoy the views, a modern well equipped kitchen and dining area leading through to an open plan bedroom with super king-size bed.

The adjoining wet room is spacious and provides a modern facility, ideal for relaxing after a hard day out on the fells.

A great place to get away from it all, enjoy a romantic break, enjoy the many footpaths and the challenges of this wild and rugged area and perhaps even spot the odd red squirrel, or spring lambs during lambing season.

The lovely old town of Sedbergh is just 2 miles away, and a little further afield the Three Peaks challenge.

An ideal touring base with both the Dales and the Lake District National Parks on the doorstep.

Note: This property adjoins Ref 1292 and 1097, together they sleep 12.

Birks Farm Cottages

Sedbergh 2 miles. Three 17th century Grade II listed barn conversions, set on the owners' working farm within the Dales National Park, just 2 miles from Sedbergh, a new book town, and within easy reach of The Lake District. Knott View and Brant View and Knott Lodge boast outstanding views of the valley and dramatic Howgill Fells and have been lovingly restored to provide spacious, comfortable accommodation. 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. With the Farfield Mill Arts and Heritage Centre and the towns of Hawes and Dent all within easy reach, these lovely properties make an ideal base in which to relax and unwind and from which to tour both the Lakes and Dales at any time of the year.

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.
