  • "Cottage is fabulous and in a great position on a cobbled street in Dent, part of the beautiful Dentdale."

    We very much enjoyed our stay, found the cottage a pleasure to be in and definitely recommend it. Walking in Dentdale and further afield is easily accessible as are Sedbergh and Hawes, the two towns we visited. The owners of this cottage are exceptionally helpful.

  • "The cottage was warm and inviting."

    It was very well equipped and we had everything we needed. Beds were super comfy. Parking was close by in the village car park and cost £30 for the week. It was a very relaxing holiday in an idyllic location.

  • "Charming, very well equipped, comfortable and positioned perfectly in a the cobbled centre of the village tucked between church behind and pubs to the front."

    Ample and very reasonably priced parking for visitors in the public car park. Plenty of well marked footpaths in and around the village. Dent is well cared for and loved by its locals who make visitors welcome.

  • "White Hart House was perfect."

    The welcome pack left for us was fabulous and very thoughtful. The text we received from the owners prior to arrival with information about the local area as well as the information pack in the cottage was very helpful but the added touch of a text after a few days in the cottage from the owners making sure we were ok and had everything we needed was a lovely touch and something we have not experienced before.

  • "Situated in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales we had cracking weather during our stay."

    Roomy cottage on three floors. Local cafes and pubs good but limited amenities beyond that. Great walks in the locality especially along the River but still accessible to other locations with a bit of a drive. Peaceful place to stay for a well earned break!

  • "Fabulous location, very clean and comfortable."

    Rarely left the lovely kitchen area except to sit outside looking at the church. Beautiful walks in every direction all around the village and a pub left and right of the front door.

    Fabulous location, spotlessly clean and superbly furnished. Annoyed by Sykes for their unnecessary price hikes. I would not use them in the future when there is more availability

  • "Wonderful hosts, nothing was too much trouble."

    The Welcome Pack was very welcome after a long journey. Also, it was refreshing to have plenty of the staples in the cupboards from hand wash to washing up liquid, to cooking oil to tin foil. The cottage is warm and cosy and full of character. There are plenty of walks on your doorstep and coffee and cakes on offer at the heritage centre just a short stroll away. Fantastic break.

  • "White Hart House is a ' good feel 'cottage in such a peaceful location to be based and explore the Dales from."

    The kitchen is a welcoming area with its large table and log burner to return to after a day out. Dent is a lovely ' go back in time ' village with walks on the door step with all the main towns of Hawes , Sedburgh & Ingleton within 40 minutes drive. All in all a great week spent here !!

  • "We had the most amazing week in Dent, and loved our stay at White Heart House."

    Dent is a lovely little village, full of character. The view from anywhere in the village is magnificent, with the Dales literally right in front of you. All we could hear once we opened our windows was the sound of birds singing and sheep bleating, and the occasional sound of St Andrew's bells. We spent most of our days going for beautiful long walks and cycles, soaking in the beauty of the Dales. Unfortunately the Sun Inn was closed due to Covid, but we are sure that in better times it would be the perfect spot for a post-hike pint, just a stone throw away from the cottage. White Heart House had all the facilities we needed, and even some extras like a great woodburner stove. It was nice and clean when we arrived.

    We were there during the early part of the Corona virus restrictions but all the village made us very welcome and looked after us as though we were long-standing residents. I recommend this cottage,the village,and the Yorkshire Dales.

    The cottage matches the old world charm on the village thanks to a really clever restoration that keeps many old features but at the same time offers plenty of comfort for the visitor. We enjoyed our stay and loved relaxing in the evenings in the snug and well equipped cottage.

  • "A lovely house in the very beautiful village of Dent."

    Dent itself is very quiet, but everything you needed was on our doorstep with two pubs and the village shop which met all our basic needs, even offering freshly baked bread in the mornings. There are easy walking trails around the village and some more challenging ones which we will come back to for another time. White Hart House itself was very comfortable. Louise and Darren are great hosts. The welcome pack was apprciated with some lovely goodies. We were even provided with a towel for our dog and he even had his own welcome treat! Overall I would not hesitate to recommend White Hart House. We will certainly be returning.

The property

The grade 2 listed White Hart House retains all of the charm and character you would expect from a former 17th century Coaching Inn.

The three storey cottage is situated in the heart of the beautiful village of Dent in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Dent is ideally located for exploring the Yorkshire Dales but it is also in close reach to the market town of Sedbergh and the Lake District with the village itself residing in the county of Cumbria.

This real home-away from home cottage has a wonderful cosy ambiance allowing you to relax and unwind after energetic days out.

The property retains stunning original features with oak wooden beams and exposed stone work detailing.

Entering the property to the right is a delightful traditional style kitchen which features a large inglenook fireplace complete with a wood burning stove.

The limestone flagged floor contains underfloor heating to ensure your comfort at all times.

Ample kitchen work space and appliances including fridge/freezer and electric cooker/hobs will allow you to be able to cook and enjoy home made meals which can be served around the large farmhouse kitchen table.

The kitchen windows afford stunning views over the Dentdale valley.

Upstairs you will find an inviting sitting room finished with traditional stone work and large sash windows looking down onto Dents famous cobbled streets .The room has another wood burning stove so you can look forward to curling up on the sofas to read or watch a film whilst enjoying the warmth of a roaring fire.

Completing the first floor is the main bathroom with additional stone detailing, a shower cubicle, WC and hand basin.

When the evening draws to a close climb upstairs to the three bedrooms.

Two single rooms and a twin room.

All bedrooms feature stone work and exposed beams as befitting this grade 2 listed cottage.

The windows to the rear of the property offer stunning views over the 12th century church to the Dentdale hills beyond.

This property enjoys a central village location with the front door opening onto the much photographed Dent cobbled streets, and whist it only has limited outside space to the rear it is surrounded by the beauty of Dentdale and the towering Whernside one of the famous three peaks located directly behind.

The village has two characterful pubs renowned for serving good food along with a number of cafes and a small village shop.

The 12th century church of St Andrews is also well worth a visit.

White Hart House is a lovely countryside retreat promising a relaxed holiday with everything on your doorstep.

It is also superbly located for walking and outdoor pursuits located in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

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.
