    The directions provided by Sykes were accurate and easy to follow. The cottage was located in a lovely quiet, remote area with walks from the doorstep so we could leave the car behind. The cottage was well equipped. There is only a small freezer compartment but with lots of local shops, restaurants and pubs this isn't a problem. The views from the cottage are fabulous. Information regarding rubbish and recycling was a bit sketchy but there are recycle point in the sedbergh car parks. Overall I would definitely recommend a stay and we hope to return next year to do more walks.

    The moment we arrived it felt perfect. In fact, it is one of the best I have ever stayed in. The cottage looks out over open fields, a beautiful valley, and is completely peaceful. Inside is extremely comfortable and relaxing. The kitchen very well stocked with lots of space. The walks from the door, and views from the yard, brilliant. There are many walks and things to see a short drive away, including of course the Dales and the Lakes.

    Arrived to find the leather sofa contaminated with crumbs & a nail clipping. Carpet was dirty, long-hair rug covered in hairs & dross. Dust, dirt & detritus under furniture hadn't been cleaned in days if not weeks. Food waste on kitchen floor & under hob, something like scrambled egg stuck to chair. We could go on. We took photos (stopped at 14). Didn't want to stay but no choice. Left at first light, 200 miles home - that says it all. Owner advises to use water filter due to spring water supply. We were not confident it was fit for purpose. Suggest future customers bring their own filter. The idea the cottage had been 'deep-cleaned' for Covid is risible. Tried to raise these issues with owner, no reply to texts or emails. We chose this cottage due to previous reviews. What went wrong?

    Thank you for your feedback and I am sorry to hear of the issues that you claim to have experienced. The concerns mentioned do come as a surprise as prior to your arrival I was confident that our long-standing cleaner ensured the property was cleaned up to our usual high standard. On the evening of your arrival, you emailed me some concerns to which I responded quickly in offering you an immediate inspection of the property and the correction of any issues found, an offer which you have not taken up. When I arrived at the cottage shortly after your departure, I was shocked to find that, not only had you been smoking in the cottage, but there was ash left over the windowsill and window frame, burn marks, cigarette butts and melted plastic in the window frame, and several discarded cigarette butts outside next to our oil feed and boiler which was a clear fire hazard. This is completely unacceptable; I remind you the cottage is a non-smoking property. I can only assume this is why you refused an inspection by our cleaner while you were there. The reason I have not replied to your emails and text after your departure, is because we have passed on this matter to Sykes Cottages agency. With regards to the water supply, our water comes from a 90-metre-deep private bore hole and is filtered, and UV sterilised prior to entry into the house. It satisfies all necessary checks carried out by South Lakeland Council authority. It is wholesome and perfectly safe to drink from the tap. I only ask guests to use a Britta filter for water going into the kettle to remove hardness and help stop the kettle furring up, as per cottage information provided. I pride myself on the standard and quality my cottage boasts and believe other past and recent reviews support this. Property Owner

    It is secluded, verging on isolated, but still a short drive into Sedburgh to stock up on the essentials. It is a great jumping off point to both the Dales and the Lakes. However, if you don't fancy driving you can depart from the cottage and be on some fantastic walk immediately. Sedbergh itself had some lovely restaurants and cafes. And a surprising number of bookshops. The pre-holiday prep was straightforward; I downloaded the Sykes app and all the details were at my finger tips, backed up with supporting emails. The host was cordial and gave clear instructions on how to access the cottage. The cottage was immaculate and well furnished. All round a great week away and I wish we had booked a second week!

The location is very quiet, apart from the sheep, but we found their constant baah-ing entertaining rather than obtrusive. The house itself has obviously been refurbished in recent years, and this has been done to a very high standard. We found it very comfortable and well-equipped.

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.
