    “Lovely cottage, beautiful location - perfectly placed equidistant between Hawes and Sedbergh.”

    Loads of day trip options, dependent on how far you want to drive. We were only there for 3 days but wanted to stay far longer! I appreciate the cottage beside a road but didn’t in anyway take from our enjoyment, I wouldn’t hesitate to return. Have a great time to the next lucky visitors to Bracken Beck!

The property

This stunning semi-detached, stone-built cottage dates back to 1724 and is situated in Garsdale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Being in the heart of the delightful Dales and within easy reach of the Lake District, Bracken Beck is ideal for friends or families looking to explore this wonderful area.

The cottage has been lovingly furnished throughout by the owners to a high standard.

Built on a hillside, Bracken Beck offers entrances at both the ground floor level and first floor, with the ground floor entrance leading into a stone-flagged hallway, perfect for leaving your muddy boots and coats after a day of exploring.

The two well-appointed bedrooms are downstairs, both beautifully furnished with hand-made oak furniture and comprising a king-size room and a family room with a double and a single bed, with a cot available on request.

Completing the ground floor is the shower room for you to freshen up in, along with a handy utility room home to a washing machine, full size freezer, iron, ironing board and airer.

Travel up the open-tread spiral staircase leading up to the first floor to find the open-plan living space, with its A-framed ceiling and feature stone wall, this sociable area offers the perfect way to relax together with your group.

The kitchen is well equipped with all you need for your self-catered holiday, and meals can be enjoyed together around the dining table as you discuss the day's adventures.

There is a warming woodburning stove to relax in front of on chillier days, whilst in warmer weather the double doors open out to the lawned garden area affording lovely views over the local fells, with regular visits from the local wildlife including red squirrels, woodpeckers and nuthatches too.

Set off on an adventure from your doorstep or take a short scenic car journey to reach plenty more options with nearby landmarks to incorporate into a walk including Arten Gill Viaduct, Hardraw Force Waterfall, Kisdon and Currack Force and Pendragon Castle.

Train enthusiasts will enjoy a visit to the historic Garsdale railway station just up the road, on which runs the famous Settle-Carlisle Railway; hop on here and delight in a magnificent and scenic journey through the stunning Dales landscape passing over the famous Ribblehead Viaduct, a marvel of Victorian engineering with 24 arches.

Enjoy a drink at the local Moorcock Inn two miles from the cottage, open all day with walkers always welcome, so you can delight in a well-deserved pint on the way back from a ramble.

A short drive will take you to the ancient market towns of both Sedburgh, Hawes and Dent with their traditional pubs, shops and cafés to discover, with Hawes being home to the Dales Countryside Museum offering exhibits on rural life and home to an outdoor steam train.

Enjoy a wonderful stay in the Yorkshire Dales at Bracken Beck.

About the location

GARSDALE

Sedbergh 7 miles; Hawes 9 miles.

Garsdale is a small hamlet of stone cottages and farmhouses, nestled together with a village hall, church and chapel, resting at the foot of the dale alongside the meandering river Clough between Sedbergh and Hawes. Sheep graze on either side of the dale in this tranquil valley which is perfectly situated for days out in the Yorkshire Dales or the Lake District. The nearest market towns are Sedbergh, 7 miles to the west, and Hawes, 9 miles to the east, both of which retain their ancient character and traditions and are well situated for shops, banks and traditional pubs. With wonderful walks through the dale from the doorstep, and the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park surrounding you, this is an idyllic and peaceful setting for your holiday.
