  • "I had a lovely stay at Pine Cottage."

    The cottage has all the facilities you need. The bed in the main room was very comfortable and the bedroom decoration was light and fresh. The shower pressure was just perfect and there were lots of towels available. I had great weather so didn’t get to utilise the fire, but you have everything you need if you want the fire on. The kitchen has all the necessities, kettle, toaster, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment, oven, plates, mugs, cutlery etc. There is a nice selection of books available in the living room and the high street has a borrow a book service too. The cottage is suitable for a dog, but as downstairs is quite snug I’d say a medium dog. You’d need to be careful letting the dog out in the courtyard as the alley way leads directly to the high street so they could make a run for it! There is a field behind the high street which is great for letting a dog off for a run around. To find the cottage is quite simple, once you are in the main high street, look for the pink house and there is a white semi circle painted on the ground where you can quickly park up and unload. To the left of the pink house is a little alley way which leads to a small court yard and the cottage is on your left. There is a parking permit in the house for Joss Lane just up the road which is really handy. If you’re looking to eat locally, the Dalesman isn’t suitable for dogs but the Black Bull and Red Lion is, and the shops allow you to take a dog in. I had two lovely meals in the Red Lion. Delicious food, reasonably priced and Hannah’s customer service can’t be faulted. The Haddock Paddock is a good chip shop, but you might need to plan when you’re going as they only open for two hours in the evening. The cottage is about 20-25 minutes from Kendal and 40-45 minutes from Ambleside. There are buses that run to Kendal and a good local taxi service is On Time Taxis. All in all, I had a lovely stay and would be back again in a heartbeat.

  • "We had a fantastic 5 night stay in Pine Cottage."

    It was nicely furnished, extremely clean and had nearly everything you would need for a short break away from home. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything apart from a washing machine, but that shouldn’t be a problem for a short holiday. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom had a lovely long bath which was great for easing aches and pains after days out walking the many country walks on offer. A shelf below the bathroom mirror would be useful for makeup, jewellery, spectacles etc. The underfloor heating was a welcome bonus and there was separate heating for the upstairs, so we didn’t need to use the log burner although it was very tempting. The information pack provided by the owners was very good and the parking permit came in useful as we parked our car in the Joss Lane car park. There are a few pubs, eateries and takeaway’s near to the cottage but they are not all open every day, so this needs to be taken into account when planning. There is also a Spar not far from the property if you want to cook something yourself or get some supplies. Sedbergh is a lovely village and it’s also a good base for visiting Kendal, Hawes and other tourist attractions in the area. We would definitely recommend Pine Cottage for a short break

    Thank you so much for your helpful feedback; we're very pleased you had a good stay and we would be glad to welcome you back any time. Property Owner

  • "A comfortable cottage in a good location for exploring this area of cumbria."

    No problems finding the cottage and on street parking was easy (early March). A really good shower and comfortable bed. It took me a while to master the heating. The cottage was lovely and clean on arrival, with the welcome touches gratefully received. Being a big tea drinker it was disappointing to find the teapot was broken!

    Thank you for your feedback and I am glad that you had a lovely stay. I am sorry that the tea pot was broken - this has now been replaced for future guests. Property Owner

  • "Great cottage."

    Designed to maximise use of the space. Very comfortable and warm and well equipped. Able to dry off our wet gear. Nice to have a wood burner and the underfloor heating is fantastic! Lots of useful information (walk leaflets etc) and even a guitar to play! Clearer instructions for arrival would be good- would be better if it said that the pull over zone is on the Main Street - we missed it first time. We used the permit provided and parked in the car park as, even in February, on street parking was difficult. A great winter bolt hole!

  • "Pine Cottage was so comfortable and clean and cosy."

    Everything you needed for a relaxed break. The decor was fresh and tasteful, the wood burning stove a lovely way to relax afrer a days’ walking and the bed super comfy . The cottage was central in the town with pubs and shops all nearby but was also very quiet and we barely heard any noise. I would highly recommend and look forward to returning later in the year.

    The cottage has everything you need for your stay and is clean and cosy. The underfloor heating is a bonus in the Winter. Very comfy bed and an amazing shower. Lovely evenings sat in front of the log burner. The cottage also benefits from amazon Prime and Netflix. Will definitely visit again.

    It’s a little hidden gem tucked behind the Main Street, just couple of minutes walk to lovely little village which has everything you may need. Everything in the cottage was just perfect, comfy bed lovely decor and wood burner for those cosy nights in. Thank you to the owners & Winder services for those little extra touches and for making us feel so at home. It’s our first visit to Sedbergh but we will definitely be back soon and wouldn’t hesitate to book Pine Cottage again. Thank you

  • "Pine cottage is a delightful small but comfortable cottage in the centre of Sedbergh ."

    The access on foot from the town centre is literally two minutes and the range of good pubs, restaurants and a few shops make it an excellent place to stay. There are plenty of good walks from the door, or a little further afield in this beautiful part of south Lakeland and the Yorkshire Dales. The cottage was very clean, it has all basic equipment you need, and the beds are very comfortable. The decor and furnishings are tasteful and good quality, while a wood burner in the sitting room makes it cosy on cooler days. Parking is easy in adjoining streets or in the car parks where the owners have provided a parking permit. The Wi-Fi in the cottage is good. The addition of a microwave would enhance the facilities in the kitchen, as there is only a cooker, hob and undercounter fridge provided, but two people can easily manage to self cater or eat out in the many cafes and pubs in the locality. To find the cottage be sure to look for the passage next to the pink house on the High Street, where the pavement is wide enough and has a white line semi-circle to pull your car on, in order to off-load your luggage. We enjoyed our stay in Pine Cottage and would be happy to return on future occasions to stay in this cosy and interesting traditional cottage.

    Thank you so much for your feedback and I'm so glad you had a lovely stay. The cottage now has a microwave to improve our facilities for future guests. Would love to welcome you back again. Hannah Property Owner

  • "Spent 4 nights here."

    Excellent base for visiting the Lakes, and found Sedbergh a lovely place too! Couple of things stand out - firstly the communication with the owner was fantastic. We were sent a photo of where to find Pine Cottage, as it can be tricky to find. I get why others had difficulty, my top tip would be when you see the pink house, park on the pavement right outside it and unpack the car there - the Cottage is up the lane! The Cottage itself was immaculate and a very comfortable place to stay. We had read the previous reviews and would like to point out that the owners have addressed every single comment made. It now has blinds, a pizza cutter, new towels - they really do act on the feedback they receive. There is also a smart Tv with Freesat and a hairdryer in the bedroom drawer unit - and the shower is great!! We parked in the Joss Lane car park each night, as the owners have paid for a permit you can use, very thoughtful, as street parking is at a premium in the village. It was a 3 minute walk along the street, and a lovely walk past the shops. (If you’re looking for a packed lunch ‘On a Roll’ does delicious baguettes!)!We didn’t light he fire, as our visit was during the great spell of weather, but we wanted to, just to experience the log fire going. Next time! This was a fab base for our holiday, we would happily have stayed longer. Thank you, Hannah and Barney!

  • "Pine cottage is really quaint, situated in a little courtyard shared with 3 other cottages."

    There is no gate so not suitable to be able to let the dog out on his own as very close to the road. I could see how previous people would have had difficulty finding it but thankfully the owner contacted us beforehand with clear directions and a photograph so we couldn’t have missed it. She was really helpful throughout our stay and answered messages straight away. The cottage was lovely and clean, nicely decorated and the bed was sooooo comfortable. Just a couple of issues we experienced which could be easily rectified and are the same issues mentioned in a previous review, cold tap in the bathroom is loose, no loo brush and no privacy on the landing window. There were no kitchen scissors or pizza cutter which would have been useful. We were also a bit disappointed that the towels although they had obviously been cleaned they still had stains on them which is little off putting. Having said that we would stay here again and Sedbergh is a lovely little village full of olde world charm.

    Many thanks for your feedback; we have now acted on your suggestions for improvement. We're glad you had a lovely time. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage, lovely area, two of us, four would be quite tight I would think."

    Difficult to find. The instructions make sense only after you have found it, some three times round the block! Just some small niggles that would not take long to sort, which would make a difference. There are no nets on key stair windows although there are some hooks, so no privacy getting to bathroom or heading downstairs. Cold tap loose in bathroom and ballcock issue means flush goes on forever wasting so much water unless you push handle back to stop it. No loo brush. Situated close to all shops and pubs, two mins walk to Spa supermarket. Loads of local walks both easy and more challenging. We had a great time.

  • "We had such a lovely break."

    The cottage was gorgeous and sedbergh was lovely. We would recommend. We only had 2 little improvements 1) the instructions to find the cottage are hopeless. We had to park up and walk around to find it. A little plan with a cross would be helpful as would knowing that the courtyard name doesn’t feature on google maps and knowing that it is not visible from the Main Street. 2) the ground floor is very chilly and the instructions to turn on the underfloor heating were not clear so we couldn’t get it to work.

    Thank you for your comments, we're really pleased you enjoyed the cottage. We will improve the instructions for future guests, many thanks for the constructive feedback. Thanks, Hannah Property Owner

    It’s centrally locates in Sedbergh and local to Shops and Pubs, a very nice restaurant at the Black Bull. The cottage was immaculately clean and very cosy, definitely a cosy break away! it’s centrally location between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District - we spend a day around the area at the various Viaducts - Ribbledale and Dent Head viaduct very good walks. The town of Sedbergh was lovely and quiet not a soul about in the evenings and just the noise of people chatting in the local pubs. if your looking for a English cottage get away to a real english village this is a great stay. The owner was very helpful in telling me where to go around the area and where to eat and park. The beds were extremely comfy and the Bath was lovely and deep. I would definitely book this cottage again! I hope you do book this too and if you have any questions feel free to come through to the Reservations team and ask for me - I’ll gladly help you with this. All the best and Stay Safe.

The property

Behind a hidden side street, tucked in the small town of Sedbergh, is this quaint three-storey property, Pine Cottage.

Perfect for a couple's romantic break to the Yorkshire Dales or a trip with a small group of friends, it offers a delightful base for your adventures in Cumbria.

Step inside and be welcomed into a neat open-plan living space, where a woodburning stove adds a classic cottage feel, and a sofa and TV provide a relaxing spot for a quiet evening.

A small dining table tucked to the side and some folding chairs act as a cute dining area, with the kitchen home to a gas oven and hob and a fridge, for when you're not dining out in and around the area at the many excellent restaurants.

Make your way up the stairs to find the first bedroom; a double room with plenty of storage space and a light and airy interior.

On the second floor you can find the lovely bathroom, complete with a bath and shower over, as well as another bedroom, this one home to a single day bed, to be used for an extra guest or as a peaceful reading spot, with an abundance of light from the Velux window.

From Pine Cottage you can take a short walk to Sedbergh's high street where traditional pubs await, as well as shops and narrow winding streets.

The Dales Way passes near the town and is an 80-mile long-distance footpath taking you along wonderful scenery in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, so walkers should be sure to plan a day exploring the route.

The Ribblehead Viaduct isn't far and it's well-worth seeing this 19th century viaduct made of 24 stone arches in person, and it's not far from several excellent peaks to walk, including Ingleborough, Whernside and Great Knoutberry Hill.

Killington Lake lies less than ten miles away and is a haven for water sport enthusiasts with opportunities for dinghy sailing, windsurfing and canoeing, as well as fishing available and the site is popular with birdwatchers too.

Visit the home of Kendal Mint Cake, the southern gateway to the Lake District, Kendal is a delightful town to explore; wander around the ruins of Kendal Castle, visit the Kendal Museum and the Museum of Lakeland Life & Industry for some local history.

Relish a break away with your loved one in Cumbria staying at Pine Cottage.

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.
