    “Nice Cottage in Excellent Location”

    We stayed over New year and had a great time. The cottage is well equipped and clean and the village is quaint and well located for lots of attractions. The cottage has three levels with the living room on the third floor and the kitchen on the second. This wasn't a problem for us but needs to be remembered if you are less mobile. The central heating worked really well - so well that we only used the log burner a couple of times and that was only for an hour or so (more out of novelty factor than necessity). The village has plenty of places to eat and drink (good real ale in three places). The Indian and Chinese restaurants have closed down but there is now an Italian restaurant (where the Indian used to be we think). The nearest car park is about 50 yards away and cost £10 for the week. There is a 4 mile circular walk to the top of the Winder Hill and back via the pubs in the village which can be done from the front door of the cottage. It took us about 3 very leisurely hours (plus pub time) - great views across to Morecambe bay and over to Yorkshire. There are plenty of other places to visit within a short drive.

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.
