  • "We loved this little cottage."

    It was perfect for 2 people and in a great location for both the Dales and the Lakes. Bed was very comfy with great pillows. Central heating very efficient. Would definitely recommend.

  • "We stayed for one week at Bramble Cottage and thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and well appointed and was so comfortable and quiet. It was well located in the town of Sedbergh and was a perfect base to explore West Yorkshire and Cumbria.

  • "We walked on The Howgill Fells direct from the door of this very comfortable, well equipped cottage which is in a quiet cul-de-sac, with private parking and is only a 5-10 minute stroll to the centre of Sedbergh, with a big Spar even closer!"

  • "Lovely little cottage and plenty enough space for my wife and I and our 14 year old daughter."

    The parking space outside is bigger than it looks on the photos and there was plenty of room for our large family saloon. Our neighbours and the people of Sedbergh in general were really friendly. We live close to a railway, the A19 and the M62 - so we really noticed how peaceful it was at Bramble Cottage which is nicely tucked away, but has the convenience of a Spa shop literally at the end of the road and the main pubs and restaurants of Sedbergh barely a 5 minute walk away. We have only ever passed through Sedbergh on our way to the Lakes before now, but we really enjoyed our stay and hope to be back soon.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Bramble Cottage."

    We knew from listing that it was going to be smaller than we are used to which didn't bother us at all. The cottage was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for a lovely stay. The bed was amazingly comfortable. Location was ideal for us to visit both Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. Would definitely recommend.

    Thank you for taking the trouble to review Bramble Cottage. It's always nice to know that guests have enjoyed their stay. Property Owner

  • "Small but very cosy."

    The only drawback for us was the ned. Very supportive but just a little too soft. Apart from that - fine. The local Spar - 5 minutes walk was excellent too. Very friendly, apart from Matts Duo cafe. Poor service and a poor response to my Trip Advisor comment.

  • "We had a lovely week in Bramble Cottage."

    Clean, very comfortable and although quite small it was adequate and well equipped for a couple and a dog. Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac it was perfect for walking straight up on to the fells and only five minutes walk down in to the town. We'd definately come again.

    Thank you for your great feedback. We look forward to welcoming you again. Property Owner

    Very well equipped kitchen. King size bed was really comfortable. The outside space was very peaceful and definitely a sun trap. Walking distance to the village was a bonus too. Will definitely return in the future.

  • "We absolutely loved our holiday at Bramble Cottage in Sedbergh."

    The cottage had everything we needed, it felt like home from home, comfortable and the views of the Hills from our bedroom window was just amazing. This is the first time we came to Sedbergh and it definitely wont be the last, the area was beautiful, there is so many walks with, each unique, and the scenery was amazing which ever walk you decide to do. The one we liked best was the Pepperpot and the Akay Estate were you walk through the school grounds and you can still find the beautiful floor tiles from the Akay Estate in the ground, we did this walk three times, just to feel the history of the place. Sedbergh, although a very quaint town, it is beautiful with so much to it and the fish and chip shop "The Haddock Paddock" was one of the best. Highly Recommended and we will definitely be back, not just to the place itself but also Bramble Cottage. Thank you again. The Stones Family (Chesterfield)

    So pleased to hear you had a lovely time at Bramble Cottage, and we look forward to welcoming you back another time. Property Owner

  • "The cottage is clean, comfortable and well situated for visiting Sedbergh and the surrounding area."

    There were a couple of niggles that affected our enjoyment however. First, the kitchen is tiny, maybe two by two metres, and is more properly described as a kitchenette (which was not apparent from the description or photos provided). The lack of space made cooking difficult and unenjoyable. Secondly, the stairgate fitted across the entrance to the kitchen is in the way and presents a trip hazard- we found ourselves stubbing toes and banging knees during our stay. The purpose of the stairgate is apparently to allow visitors with dogs to confine their animal to the kitchen while out. In reality though the size of this property and modest outside space makes it unsuitable for anyone with a dog.

    I'm pleased you found the cottage clean, comfortable and well situated. The kitchen, like the cottage as a whole, while small, is well-provisioned. It is actually approx 3m x 2m and in over 11 years I haven't had a similar comment. I'm sorry the stair gate was annoying. Many guests have dogs. I noted you have an infant, and not knowing if your infant was mobile, I left the gate in place for safety reasons. It is very easily removed by turning the wheels at either side. The Welcome pack requests guests to notify of any issues thereby giving us a chance to rectify them during your stay and if you'd let us know we would have been pleased to either advise you over the phone how to remove the gate, or come and done it. Wishing you a happy new year. Property Owner

  • "We stayed at this cottage in September 2020, so on this second visit we knew what we could rely upon it however bad the covid restrictions might become, and this part of Cumbria is not as crowded as the Lake District parts are likely to be."

    Indeed, all of the walks we took were not crowded. Excellent features We were very happy to be positioned so close to the fells that it was possible to walk straight to them. Similarly the town is only a short distance away, and can be easily walked to. The cottage is in a nice residential area, and this made us feel secure. Slight annoyances with: The hot water tap in the kitchen has extreme hysteresis, meaning that it would not issue any hot water until it was turned on more than would be expected, then suddenly responds with a bump, and issues too much hot water. Then it has to be turned down quickly to stop this high flow. This was wasteful of hot water ! It was exactly like this in September 2020, and I did report it in my subsequent feedback. The extractor fan in the bathroom was quite noisy.

In the cottage description, it would be worth mentioning that the living room table (that looks too small for 3 people) does extend to comfortably allow 3 people to dine together.

  • "Bramble Cottage is in a lovely, quiet town convenient to The Lakes and The Dales."

    The cottage’s kitchen is well equipped. I don’t mind washing dishes by hand when I can enjoy the spectacular view from the kitchen window. The patio certainly looked tempting, however, the weather didn’t cooperate. The bathroom has a power shower with good pressure. The only note I would make about the cottage for North Americans is the king bed is the equivalent of a queen bed back home.

The property

Nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac at the foot of Winder Fell and just a short walk from all the amenities of Sedbergh, with a selection of shops, pubs and cafés, is Bramble Cottage.

This charming, small, mid-terrace property offers a lovely base for touring the Yorkshire Dales National Park, where you can relax on return from long walks over the fells.

This cottage is well-suited to couples and small families seeking a varied holiday in a fascinating part of the country, with plenty of hidden gems to explore in the area.

Furnished and decorated to a good standard, you can unwind in the cosy sitting room and overlook the garden while enjoying a home-cooked meal at the dining table(can be extended to sit 6), prepared in the well-equipped kitchen next door.

You have two lovely bedrooms to choose form to catch your rest in, while the family bathroom is ideal for a long hot soak in the tub or a refreshing shower each morning before you step out to discover all the delights of the Yorkshire.

Dine alfresco in the summer time and enjoy the privacy of having your own outside space as you sip a cool glass of your favourite tipple.

You are only a short distance from the town's market place, which is held on the car park at the eastern end of the main street each Wednesday.

You also have a traditional, Yorkshire pub, restaurants and takeaways, along with various other amenities.

There is a network of walking in the area, with trails leading you away from the crowds in unspoilt hills and valleys.

From Woodside Avenue there is a footpath that takes you to Howgill Lane and from there you can follow a popular route through Lockbank Farm to the top of Winder and beyond.

A popular attraction is Farfield Mill arts and heritage centre on the Garsdale road, just outside Sedbergh and for anyone interested in history, the Quaker Meeting House a mile down the Kirkby Lonsdale road is well worth a visit.

Discover The Howgills with its fantastic opportunities to enjoy the night sky, explore the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District National Parks, then return to this romantic, Sedbergh cottage at the end of each day.

About the location


Kendal 12 miles; Hawes 15 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.
