  • "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

    It is a home away from home. The location of the property is great too, with plenty of pubs & eating options all within walking distance.

  • "Very comfortable house with everything you need for a self catering holiday."

    The bed was very cosy, I slept so well all week. Bathrooms were luxurious with fluffy towels. Kitchen was spacious and had plenty of equipment. We used some of the walks that had been printed out too. Would definitely stay again if we are visiting the area.

  • "We’re a couple and stayed a week end of March 2022."

    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.

    This is a fabulous, well equipped cottage. Everything was of good quality and presented well, spotlessly clean! Some nice touches, treats for Brian and a little welcome pack! Sedbergh is a good place to wander round with some independent shops and dog friendly places to eat. Highly recommend a stay here and will be going again.

About the location


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.
