  • "Great house and facilities in a central position with easy access to amenities"

  • "An exceptional place to stay."

    Tucked away from the main road but close to local amenities as well as beautiful walks. With spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms and a downstairs toilet, it was the perfect retreat for a family with two teenagers. The silence was golden and the views were gorgeous. Thank you so much for the much needed head space.

  • "We only used for B&B as we were visiting with family who live in the village."

    Cottage was warm and had all the facilities we would want if staying longer and using it as our holiday home. Top floor shower took a while to get any pressure but that is to be expected in such a property, also the flexible shower head bracket needs attention as it will not keep the head upright. Rain shower works fine. The stairs would not be suitable for anyone with mobility problems due to their curve and steepness. Grab handles are there to use on one side. The property has been converted as well as possible considering it's age and style of construction. We would be very happy to stay there again. The kitchen is really well equipped and nicely laid out although we never got to use it much.

    Thank you so much for your detailed feedback; it really does help. We will address the various comments where possible, although as you say, in some respects we are constrained by the property itself. I hope we can welcome you with a small gift should you be able to visit again. Property Owner

  • "This is an absolute gem of a cottage."

    Very well equipped (super sharp knives...a rarity in holiday cottages!), views of the fells from bedrooms, comfortable beds and lovely bathrooms. The area itself has many wonderful walks from the door, both easy and more challenging and lots of information was provided in the cottage about activities/walks. Very good grocers in the town and some good pubs. The only negative (and not really a big one) is no parking space at the cottage itself but the parking permit provided for the two (very nearby) carparks worked a treat.

    Thank you for the feedback Janice. So glad you enjoyed the house and the town and the lovely walks. As you say, parking a short walk away is not perfect, but we try to make that clear before people book. Property Owner

  • "The property was perfectly situated right in the centre of the village but still tucked away enough to be private."

    The facilities were great and there were lots of cooking tools and accessories, everything you could need. The living area is a bit snug if you were 6 in the house but we were only 4 so it was fine. Communication from Paul the owner was excellent and very helpful. All in all a great stay, would recommend. Thank you.

    Thank you so much for providing feedback Gillian, and I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. We agree that the living area is too small for 6 people to be comfortable, which is why, despite having 3 double bedrooms, we restrict numbers to a maximum of 4 guests :-). Hope you can return sometime, perhaps for more cricket! Best wishes. Paul Property Owner

    Sedbergh ideally situated at the foot of the Fells. Lots of local dog friendly walks and several tasty eateries. All dog friendly, except for the Dalesman. We crossed the road instead and had two delicious meals at the very welcoming Red Lion. Convenient for exploring the Lakes and definitely recommend the drive from Sedbergh to Ribblehead Viaduct, stunning views. Thank you for such a comfortable stay and would definitely love to visit again, one day.

    Hello Caroline Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback; it really is appreciated. And thank you for the positive comments. So glad you enjoyed your stay. It will be a pleasure to welcome you back whenever you can. Best wishes. Paul Property Owner

    Thank you so much for the positive feedback, Simon. So glad you had a good time. I'm sorry about the place mates; there are two in the house, but maybe they've got hidden away. As it happens, the table doesn't mark easily, but we do appreciate you taking care. Thanks again. Paul Property Owner

    The most comfortable beds, linen and towels (I went home and immediately ordered the duvet that was on our bed!), brilliantly equipped kitchen and beautifully decorated throughout. Little touches such as dog treats and milk and biscuits we're appreciated. So much to explore from your doorstep. Highly recommended.

  • "We had a lovely stay in your Sedbergh home."

    It is so beautifully decorated. All the rooms were so cozy and inviting. Don’t know if we’ve ever stayed anywhere with such a well supplied kitchen. We really enjoyed cooking in the kitchen. And all the pretty dishes made our meals that much more fun! The instructions booklet was so helpful. I’ve also never encountered a home stay where such detail is left to answer any questions. The walk guides and local suggestions are also great. We didn’t realize how much Sedbergh had to offer and enjoyed the shops and pubs just a few steps away.

    So glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback; it is much appreciated. Property Owner

    Very clean, maintained to a high standard and very well kitted out especially in the kitchen. Sedburgh is a great location for getting out and about, some lovely walks on the doorstep and easy access to the Lakes and Dales. A couple of very nice pubs in Sedbergh great food but fairly pricey, the fish and chips takeaway and the cafe round the corner are really good. Highly recommend for a very relaxing get away.

    The property is very well equipped, everything to a high standard. Each room is beautifully decorated. Easily walkable to the Main Street of Sedbergh and a good starting point to explore Yorkshire Dales. Only point which would make it even better is handrail/ hand grabs on steep stairs.

    Beautiful cottage in a lovely friendly town, tucked away from the main street, 2 minutes walk away ( if that) from Sedbergh centre which had enough facilities to keep most people happy...the Red lion Inn was amazing with great food and a friendly atmosphere from locals and tourists alike! 2 Kings Yard couldn't of been any better, very comfortable and cosy with amazing bathrooms and the comfiest beds I've ever slept in,brilliant wi-fi which will please any youngsters who may stay there....in our opinion, perfectly located for a great holiday...tip for future guests, we travelled in 2 cars and found plenty of on street parking both in Bainbridge Road & Highfield Road and never had to use the parking permit once during our stay although it was out of season so may be different in summer but car park is only 3 minutes walk away so wouldn't be an issue....one suggestion would be some kind of hand rail on the staircase as they are quite steep, not a problem for younger people but could be a problem for the less mobile Thank you for a great holiday and we look forward to our return!!

    June 2023: Following this feedback, we have now installed grab rails on the stairs. Thank you so much for the positive and constructive feedback, Paul. The next time we are there, we will investigate the option of adding a handrail to the stairs. We are limited for space, but there may be something we can do. Thanks again, and I look forward to your next booking! Property Owner

  • "We had an extremely enjoyable and comfortable stay at 2 Kings Yard: the property being very thoughtfully presented and well equipped, particularly the kitchen."

    Such a luxury to have a set of sharp knives! A rarity in rental properties in my experience. The bedrooms are thoughtfully decorated and cozy; my teenage son declaring his bed the most comfortable he’s slept in! Both bathrooms have superb showers. The only negative of the stay was that previous guests had not put out the refuse bin for collection which was crammed full on our arrival. I will be recommending 2 King’s Yard to friends and family, should they be staying in the Sedbergh area.

    Thank you so much for the positive feedback! I'm sorry the bin was crammed full; we do rely on guests putting the bins out (fortnightly), and I try to remind them when this is due. Unfortunately, the guests prior to your stay didn't respond to my messages so perhaps hadn't receive them. We hope to welcome you back to Sedbergh again; I'll be sure to keep the knives sharp in case you do! Best wishes. Paul Property Owner

    We will be back :) As pro photographers, avid hikers, one ultra runner and cyclists we found the area amazing, less crowded, very close to the hills and beautiful. Very relaxing break, with walks right from the door. We loved the house and everything inside was amazing. The bed was as a good as any 5 star chain we’ve used, such as Banyan Tree or Shangri-la. Roll-top high-back bath was amazing, as was the bathrooms design decor. Attention to detail of the owner was everywhere, even in the small details of kitchen facilities (pots, pans, and even the little items that you appreciate being there, but that they were high quality too). We loved the ability to get to the lakes a couple of days, and that we could hike or run up into the How Gills from the door. Italian Restaurants, cafe, gastro pub, shop, bakery/coffee house and fish and chip shop are all very high quality. Take your pick you can’t go wrong. Worth every penny. We enjoyed our stay immensely.

About the location


Kendal 11.5 miles; Kirkby Lonsdale 11.8 miles, Hawes 15.8 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.
