  • "We had a wonderful holiday in this cute cottage that was full of charm."

    The directions we were sent were very helpful (and essential) and the guides to the local area in the house allowed us to make the most of our stay. We loved Sedbergh and walked in and out most days. There are loads of great walks nearby and further afield too. We’ll definitely be back!

  • "A comfortable, compact property which is ideal for one or two people."

    The location is lovely - lots of walking from the door, and the sound of the river outside masks any noise from the roads. The owners were very helpful with detailed instructions about parking (easy enough with a small car) and a welcome supply of brownies, milk and bread on arrival. A couple of small niggles - the kitchen door doesn't shut properly, for example - but nothing to spoil the stay. Hope to be back one day.

  • "We enjoyed our stay over the Christmas week."

    The cottage was cosy with a wood burning stove and well equipped. The bedrooms were very spacious and the beds comfortable. The hosts were easy to communicate with and responded quickly when we had a query. We imagine staying there in the summer would be really special as the location is unique with many lovely views, walks and nearby places to visit. Farfield Mill was amazing. Although parking is tight the neighbours were really helpful.

  • "Lovely quiet location."

    Characterful and comfortable cottage. Farfield Mill art centre is so nearby and a delight. Road access very narrow with high hedges and only 1 passing place - would be a real challenge to reverse down it. We parked at Farfield Mill for most of the week.

    Couldn't recommend it more highly. Really comfortable place and well-looked after. We were made to feel incredibly welcome. The views from the cottage and its garden are breathtaking with the full panorama of the fells in front of you. It's also in the perfect place for all sorts of walks from the front door. Thank you so much for a brilliant holiday.

    Sedburgh is a lovely area & we used it as a base for undertaking the northern end of The Dales Way. Parking is quite a challenge especially if you are not confident about turning & manoeuvring in tight situations.

  • "Listing this with 4 stars was a misrepresentation."

    The property is dated. In need of some TLC . Its the 21st century. Facilities need to be better. No freezer. All prepared food needed to be wasted. Leaking tap in bathroom unacceptable with water shortages. Curtains in living room hanging off pole. Need to resolve rubbish removal.

    This was the first time we have stayed in a cottage and we absolutely loved it! The cottage was so beautiful with walks around it and we even made it up to the top of Winder! The leaflets were really helpful for days out and there were some lovely finishing touches such as flowers and bits on arrival, the soft furnishings made the cottage extra special! Thank you so much for a fabulous holiday x

  • "Lovely cosy private cottage in a beautiful location."

    Really peaceful and fabulous local scenery and walks in the dales, and easy reach to local pretty villages, shops, Farfield Mill arts & crafts and cafe literally on the doorstep, and not far to The Lakes for day trips. Very well equipped kitchen and all facilities. Lounge with big sofas and log burner, good TV and wifi - really roomy yet cosy. Very comfy beds (had such good sleeps) with pretty fresh linen, and great shower/ bath. Everything so clean and to a really great standard. Thank you to owners, Amy and Joe, for the warm welcome, great info about the cottage and surroundings and the lovely welcome pack of goodies and fresh flowers too. We love the decor, which is fresh, practical but oh so cute and cleverly furnished. Modern luxuries blended with cottage quirkiness. Such an inviting feel. We have two big dogs and had plenty of room for all of us; plus there’s a cute little enclosed garden which is perfect for sitting out and gazing over to the magical fells. This really is a special find. We would love to stay again.

The property

Resting at the foot of the Howgill Fells, this beautiful stone-built cottage is nestled on the outskirts of the quaint town of Sedbergh, in the sought-after county of Cumbria.

Idyllically positioned for a rural escape to the countryside, 2 Farfield Row provides a lovely base for both families and friends alike.

Entering the property, you will be greeted by an open-plan living/dining room, beautifully appointed with two sofas gathered around a traditional woodburning stove, offering a welcoming setting to curl up with your loved ones and enjoy some quality time together of an evening.

There is a pull-out dining table available in the sociable space, where you can enjoy your lovingly prepared meals, cooked to perfection in the compact, but well-equipped kitchen resting to the rear.

If you're lucky enough to experience the warmer weather, step out to the front enclosed lawned garden where you can enjoy a refreshing beverage and delight in those stunning country views surrounding, and even get some peace and quiet and escape into the pages of a captivating book.

Stepping back indoors, climb the stairs to the first-floor where you'll find a king-size bedroom, alongside a family bathroom with an elegant bath and shower over, so you can enjoy a leisurely soak amongst the bubbles in the tub at the end of a tiring day, or a rejuvenating rinse in the morning, whilst the second-floor homes a twin bedroom.

While you're in the area, travel towards the Farfield Mill, an organisation which provides a hub for creative purposes, holding events such as art exhibitions showcasing local works relating to the Lakes.

The Howgill Fells provides an exceptional base for exploring the open countryside with ample walking and hiking opportunities for avid outdoor adventurers.

Travel towards the bustling town of Kendal for a plethora of tourist attractions, including the 18th century Abbot Hall Art Gallery, housing 300 years' worth of British landscapes and artwork by local artist George Romney.

Also nearby is the 12th century Kendal Castle, the Museum of Lakeland Life & Industry, as well as the Cumbria Wildlife Trust slightly further afield, offering more than 40 nature reserves and a abundance of wildlife to spot.

Venture into Kirkby Lonsdale for more traditional pubs and restaurants and some fine food options, as well as independent shops and supermarkets for your amenities.

2 Farfield Row is a delightful choice for a countryside break to Cumbria.

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.
