  • "Excellent property and very spacious and comfortable."

    The garden was lovely. Every you needed for a relaxing comfy holiday. The host lived close by if you needed anything. The beds were very comfortable and I cannot say anything negative at all about the property and location. The host was very friendly and the complimentary goods that was there for us was a lovely surprise. All I missed was the sunshine.

    Plenty of room for 2 families, the kitchen/dining space was jaw-dropping, the open fireplace in the living room was very cozy and the garden was a joy to spend time with Skye (our labrador). Definitely be booking this cottage again during our next visit to the lakes and I'll recommend all family and friends.

  • "A lovely property in the north west of the Yorkshire Dales."

    Well equipped and furnished - Emma mattresses and M&S linen; cosy log burner; fast internet and the cottage's own Netflix account. Beautiful walks right on the doorstep (literally), lovely places to visit and some great pubs and food nearby. Of note there is currently no washing machine but don't let that put you off.

    Thanks to you both for your kind comments, great to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

Indulge in a leisurely dinner around the generous eight-seater dining table before venturing outside to bask in the fading sunlight on the patio, overlooking the charming rear garden, and as the night sky unfolds, revel in the celestial display of stars overhead.

Burnt Mill Cottage resides just a short drive from Sedbergh's town centre, where you can stock up on essential supplies or enjoy a delightful evening at one of the inviting pubs such as The Red Lion, The Black Bull, or The Dalesman Country Inn, not to mention the authentic Italian cuisine of Il Forno.

About the location


Kendal 12 miles; Hawes 15 miles.

The attractive old market town of Sedbergh (pronounced Sed-Ber), with its old-world atmosphere, is not only set in the magnificent western dales of the Yorkshire Dales National Park but is also close to the rugged eastern fells of the Lake District. The town, with its narrow streets, little shops, traditional pubs, famous school dating back to 1525 and its 12th century church, has been a thriving community for hundreds of years, with a market dating from the 13th Century. 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.
