The property

Settled in the heart of Serbergh, Cumbria is this wonderful, mid-terrace holiday home, Piggy Bank Cottage.

Enjoying a character, stone-built exterior and offering accommodation that is packed with charm, Piggy Bank Cottage is ideal for a family of four wanting to explore the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks.

On arrival in Kings Court car park, park in space No 4.

Continue inside your home-from-home to find a well-equipped kitchen/diner that enjoys contemporary fittings throughout, so you can cook and dine in style!

Move across the ground floor to the cosy sitting room, where a realistic flame effect electric stove will give you extra warmth whilst you choose a film for all the family to enjoy on the Smart TV.

As the day winds to a close, head upstairs to rest your head in the tastefully furnished king-size that enjoys exposed beams along with a Smart TV for extra entertainment; across the way rests the triple bunk room that is ideal for the kids.

Completing the first floor is a sleek, family bathroom that provides the perfect moment of solace amongst the bubbles in its bath with shower over.

A short walk will bring you to Sedbergh Main Street where you can pay its pubs, eateries and shops a visit, or you can venture to the nearby Fairfield Mill to view some lovely, local artwork.

Sedbergh is a sanctuary for bibliophiles being an official book town with Westwood Books, Dales & Lakes Book Centre and Clutterbooks.

Travel a short distance to Kendal, a town resting at the foothills of the Lake District and offering fascinating attractions, including Kendal Museum, Lakeland Museum and Kendwall, along with marvellous golfing opportunities.

Travel towards the centre of the Yorkshire Dales National Park to find the market town of Hawes, home to the intriguing Dales Countryside Museum, and sits near walking trails to the Hardraw Force Waterfall, Aysgill Force and the Semer Water Nature Reserve.

If you're a walking enthusiast, the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District offer a variety of peaks, including Dodd Fell Hill and Scafell Pike, or if you'd prefer to take part in some watersports, Ullswater, Derwentwater and Lake Windermere offer them in abundance.

There is so much joy to be had at Piggy Bank Cottage!

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.
