  • "Basic but perfect base for a walking holiday."

    Had everything needed for our stay with our dog. Would stay again as location excellent, Dent itself great with a shop, pubs and friendly people. Hot and powerful shower lovely after a long day walking.

  • "The Sykes cottage description says that dogs are welcome, but when the information letter from the cottage owner arrived, it stated that dogs are only permitted downstairs."

    I think the advert on Sykes website is therefore very misleading. The cottage was fine for our needs, but was very basic, although the WiFi had a good signal, very welcome in such a rural location. Would use the cottage again as long as the price remains appropriate for its simple standard.

  • "Lovely cottage great base for walkers and explorers alike."

    A heated towel rail would be an advantage. Myself and the two dogs had a great holiday and the weather wasn't too bad for November.

  • "It stated in the advert that there was a garden so we could sit outside with the dog."

    There was no garden. The mattress on the bed needs replacing, springs coming through. It also needs a outdoor light. Very lovely place, people very friendly. It would benefit from having Wi-Fi. Lovely little village, lovely church.

  • "Dent is a Beautiful cobbled street village that we have visited on a couple of occasions before, Cobble cottage is not worth the price you charge for it at Sykes , I have booked two other cottages with you in the last two years that were much better quality , cobble cottage needs alot of work doing to it , as you enter the cottage thire is a very strong dog smell that i guess is expected seeing dogs are allowed but its very strong , also it smells of the mould that is on the out facing walls , the cottage needs new furniture , new blinds , new curtains , new carpets new lampshades and a new coat of paint for starters to make it more comfortable for paying guests , I also believe it had a wiring problem and needs re wiring , the electrics dont look safe , it also needs a new fitted kitchen and bathroom upgrade , im not sure what the owners plans are long term for the cottage but it needs lots of work doing to it , i cant believe he rents it in the state it is in , we also got no towels and tea towels until Tuesday after arriving on Saturday, also the bed linen is sprayed with some thing very toxic making it hard to breath at night please just wash the bed lined and dont spray what ever it is your spraying on them , Dent is Beautiful and two great pubs , locals friendly , has some comments from locals about cottage owner , we would not go back to cobble cottage but would book another cottage in dent , was very unhappy with our booking this time with sykes after two previous beautiful cottages in the past ."

  • "Dent village is a lovely place."

    The cottages was a little dated could do with a make over. The mattress had springs sticking into your back. The shower was not working properly it was either too hot or cold no happy medium.

    Cosy cottage in the beautiful village of Dent , booked as a half way stop off on our way to Scotland & ended up loving Dent The cottage was ideal for the two of us plus a dog (child gate was very useful to keep a nosey spaniel down stairs) Beautiful walks available straight from the front door plus small drives to the Dales & Lakes Two great pubs within stumbling distance from the cottage that do food plus a shop & a couple of cafes Would happily visit again

  • "The village is beautiful."

    The traffic through can be very quick and so a little scary with dogs and young children. The cottage is a perfect base for exploring the local area. It is a little rough around the edges but suited us perfectly.

  • "Sykes does not say that any well-behaved pet must stay downstairs, which wasn't a problem for me and my dog."

    However, I fee that this information should be available from the outset,and not when the information letter from the cottage owner arrives, about a month before the holiday is due to start. Some pets are more anxious than others, so this rule might cause problems. The cottage is very cosy and comfortable, but some TLC is required - a coat of paint and improved lighting would make all the difference.

  • "Well equipped cottage ideally situated for walking from the door pub across the cobblestones road and cafe down from cottage both serving food."

    Shame there wasn’t a wood burning stove as there was a chimney it would have been the icing on the cake. Overall an enjoyable break weather not very good but will defiantly pay another visit.

  • "Lovely location in beautiful Dent."

    Parking was an issue there wasnt any next to the cottage and although we were provided with a permit for the nearby carpark unloading a car and lugging it all up the street was a pain after a 3 hour drive. The cottage is lirerally on the main road through Dent so noisy at times. Please buy some new towels as well they were well past there lifespan. Positives - Amazing location beautiful local walks Flintergill was brilliant . Lovely cafe at Meadowside. Food was dissapointing in Sun Inn. Good for exploring Lakes as well. Overall we had a fab week and enjoyed our stay.

  • "Cobble Cottage in Dent is beautiful, it has excellent facilities , including microwave,washing machine, cooker, small fridge freezer."

    Everything you need is supplied. The bed linen is spotless and fresh. Towels are also supplied and excellent hot shower. Magnificent scenery and walks from the cottage, many good places to eat, only 20 seconds walk from the dog friendly "Sun Inn" for lovely real ales and fantastic food. Local shop near by. FREE parking permit for local car park was a great help. We hope to visit this cottage again.

  • "The cottage was comfy and cosy and had plenty of information regarding how to use all the electrical appliances."

    The crockery, pans and utensils were clean and the bedding and towels were immaculate . It was obvious though, that the cottage had not had a 'deep clean' for a while, as there were cobwebs in some of the rooms and the light shades and skirting boards were very dusty. All in all though, we had a lovely holiday in a beautiful village and surrounding areas!

About the location


Sedbergh 4 miles; Kendal 15 miles.

Dent is a small village in the dale of Dentdale, and makes a wonderful place for touring both the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District. It has a village green together with cobbled streets and a pretty 12th century church. It also has its own brewery producing Aviator Ale, Ramsbottom and Golden Fleece beers – of course these are available in the village pubs to enjoy. The village offers a variety of shops and places to eat and the market town of Sedbergh is only a short drive away. Dent also has a main line station on the Carlisle to Settle railway and crosses giant viaducts at Arten Gill and Dent head before disappearing into the Blea Moor tunnel to Ribblehead viaduct. This is excellent walking country with the “Dales Way” running close by and Whernside, one of the famous “Three Peaks”, to the south.
