  • “We were a party of four couples, ...”
    We were a party of four couples, two babies and two children under four who wanted a place comfortably big enough for us to sleep and a big kitchen as we would eat at least all breakfasts and main meals 'at home'. The cottage was roomier than we had imagined and everyone felt they could retreat to a quiet space if they wanted. We never all got together in the main lounge as it was so sociable to stay at the dining table or just fall back into the settees. The kitchen too was larger than it ...
    We were a party of four couples, two babies and two children under four who wanted a place comfortably big enough for us to sleep and a big kitchen as we would eat at least all breakfasts and main meals 'at home'. The cottage was roomier than we had imagined and everyone felt they could retreat to a quiet space if they wanted. We never all got together in the main lounge as it was so sociable to stay at the dining table or just fall back into the settees. The kitchen too was larger than it looked on the photos and had everything we needed. The setting was ideal - quiet countryside. Dent viaduct was an easy walk away. We enjoyed a trip to Wensleydale Creamery - great cafe there and excellent food and service. The weather and four tiny children meant we couldn't do any hikes but we hadn't expected to. The countryside is so pretty. It was a great recommendation to do an online shop. We loved the log-burner but only lit it for the first evening as it would have been too hot after that. We all highly recommend Scale Gill Foot!!

About the location

COWGILL

Dent 4 miles; Sedbergh 9 miles; Hawes 11 miles; Settle 16 miles; Kendal 20 miles.

Situated at the head of beautiful Dentdale, Cowgill is a small hamlet consisting of the famous Dent station, the Sportsman’s Inn and a scattering of small farms and dwellings. Nearby, is one of the most remote breweries in Britain - The Dent Brewery, brewers of award-winning ales that can be bought in any of the three pubs in the local area. The surrounding countryside of Dentdale is magnificent, offering ideal conditions for fell walking and cycling, and just a short drive is the famous Three Peaks Walk, with Pen-Y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough offering some of the most challenging walks in the country. Dent is the highest railway station in Britain, at over 1100 feet above sea level, on the famous Carlisle to Settle Railway. The line crosses the huge viaducts at Arten Gill and Dent Head, built of massive blocks of Dent 'marble', from the now-disused quarries nearby, before going through the Blea Moor tunnel to Ribblehead viaduct. Dentdale is possibly the finest of the Cumbrian Dales, a valley full of beauty and historic interest. The Dales Way long distance path runs along the length of the valley, as does the River Dee. Nearby Dent is the only village in Dentdale, with delightful cobbled streets. Natural attractions such as Malham Cove and Gordale Scar are within easy reach, as are the nearby Dales towns of Hawes and Malham, as well as Kirkby Lonsdale and Sedbergh.
