    “Boskins is a fantastic cottage, in a great location for exploring both the Lakes and the Dales.”

    The welcome and hospitality from Sam and Paul is first class, with nice touches, such as the milk, eggs, bread and scones & jam provided at the beginning of our stay. The farm location was great for us, being able to take our labrador, who immediately made great friends with the owners 4 dogs. The presence of donkeys, free range chickens, sheep and 3 highland cattle is something to be aware of if you are taking your 4 legged friend, but they are all well used to the farm dogs anyway. ...

The presence of donkeys, free range chickens, sheep and 3 highland cattle is something to be aware of if you are taking your 4 legged friend, but they are all well used to the farm dogs anyway. We were able to explore the local area in both directions and there are some great local walks as well as some lovely villages to visit. Cottage facilities are great with 2 large bedrooms + en-suites, a kitchen area and a combined living/dining area. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils along with a dishwasher which is very handy. The next door utility room with large washing machine, tumble dryer as well as boot/dog shower is very handy. A cottage well worth a visit to stay and one we would be happy to recommend to other people.

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.
