    “Cottage was warm and comfortable in ...”
    Cottage was warm and comfortable in the centre of town but tucked away so peaceful. We liked being very close to the shops, pubs etc. No parking but we easily found roadside parking nearby. Owner very helpful. Would definitely consider coming back to the same cottage.

The property

An excellent, terraced stone-built cottage located in the centre of the market town of Sedbergh, in the heart of the stunning Howgill Fells.

This cottage has been tastefully renovated, matching the old with the new and providing luxury family accommodation in this charming historic town.

Set over two floors, the cottage provides two inviting bedrooms, one double and one twin and a gorgeous family bathroom complete with a bath to soak away life's troubles after a day out in this wonderful area.

Downstairs the cottage boasts a superb open plan living space, perfect for preparing family meals in the well-equipped kitchen and conversing around the dining table, or relaxing in the stylish lounge area.

A table and chairs are provided on the courtyard patio to enjoy a drink outside on warm summer days.

From the doorstep, all the amenities of the town are immediately on hand including excellent restaurants, bars and shops, to an award-winning butcher and the wonderful book shops that the town is famed for.

Sedbergh rests at the foot of the beautifully unspoilt Howgills, much admired by the famous Lakeland explorer and writer, Alfred Wainwright.

A short walk from the cottage, you can begin some of the finest walks in Lakeland, including the walk to the top of Winder and the circular walk taking in Cautley Spout waterfall along the way, returning via the river; this is probably one of the area's finest walks.

Other attractions well worth visiting for a day out include Farfield Mill, the picturesque village of Dent, and the renowned Ingleton Waterfalls.

Sedbergh is perfectly located for visiting the magnificent Yorkshire Dales or Lake District National Parks, with Kendal or Kirkby Lonsdale being found within a 30 minute's car journey.

With all this on your doorstep, this truly makes for the perfect family retreat, all year round!

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.
