  • "Good communications with the owners."

  • "The picture of the outside is slightly misleading and in fact the cottage overall was smaller than we had expected."

    It was a bit old and tired and the top floor shower was blocked and unusable.

  • "A pleasant cottage in a convenient location."

    Sedbergh is a lovely town surrounded by excellent walking country. We had a great week there.

  • "This is a great holiday cottage."

    Sedbergh is a good town for lakes and dales walking, and more book shops than you can imagine. The cottage was lovely and cool in the summer heat, with the sound of the mill stream gurgling away. The kitchen is fantastic with a huge fridge and really good quality equipment - it was fun cooking every day. The floorboards and walls curve and creak in a delightful way and I am sure the fire would keep you warm in cold weather. The main bed was very comfy, though the two single beds have very soft, springy mattresses which our kids didn't like too much. Covering them with extra blankets and sleeping on top solved their woes. We would love to stay here again.

  • "We had a very good holiday in an excellent cottage."

    The weather wasn't the best but that is not down to Sykes. The only improvements we can suggest are that the kitchen could do with one or two things extra, such as a pair of scissors; and the over bath shower in the first floor bathroom needs to be fixed so that it is adjustable for taller people.

  • "It's a lovely comfortable cottage in a great location."

    Sedbergh is a smashing village with good pubs and eateries. The Three Hares is a must for coffee and cakes etc. Being a real ale man I can recommend the Red Lion and the Dalesman. Both are easy walks from the cottage. We discovered several walks including one starting across the main road reaching up above Sedbergh to a waterfall. Sarah, the manager of the cottage, was very helpful.

  • "The cottage itself is lovely and beautifully furnished, and the owners were very helpful and gave us lots of advice on where to eat etc."

    The cottage is ideally located and the walk into Sedbergh itself is pleasant and not too far.

The property

A beautiful, 200-year old, stone-built terraced cottage, located by a lovely stream on the outskirts of the market town of Sedbergh.

A former Victorian workhouse, this Sedbergh cottage is a first-class property, lovingly renovated to retain a host of original features, including original beams, original oak and stone flooring and exposed stonework.

Set out over three floors, the accommodation in this Sedbergh cottage is full of immense warmth and character, and with its cosy sitting room with beamed ceiling and welcoming modern fire, delightful kitchen, fabulous bathrooms and spacious bedrooms, the property seamlessly combines olde worlde charm with modern conveniences.

While there is no designated garden at the cottage, just a minute's walk away is a pool in the river, ideal for swimming, and a small park which makes a lovely spot to sit out.

A truly wonderful Sebergh cottage, ideal for a small family or those wishing to get away from it all.

Sedbergh nestles at the foot of the beautifully unspoilt Howgills, free from crowds of tourists and walkers.

There are several excellent pubs and cafes serving great food, as well as an inspiring deli and an award-winning butcher.

Both Kendal and Kirkby Lonsdale are a 20-minute car journey away, and the cottage is perfectly located on the doorstep of both the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District.

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.
