  • "We (my daughter and myself) had a lovely week long stay at the house and it was so nice to be staying at somewhere that felt so homely and welcoming."

    Furnished and finished really well with all conveniences catered for we throughly enjoyed our stay. Information about the house itself was clear and all the additional local area detail, including local walk maps was a nice touch. Communication with the owner was great and we would very happily return again. Highly recommended.

  • "This is one of the best Sykes holiday cottages that we have rented."

    We appreciated the care shown by the inclusion of a welcome pack, especially the Radox, and the thoughtful guidebooks and instruction manuals. We will definitely be recommending the property to friends and family.

  • "Everything was perfect for our visit thank you, we couldn’t have asked for more."

    The accommodation was to a high standard & well thought out for visitors wants & needs, down to the little touches of a welcome basket of cake, biscuits, milk & more. Communication response was quick & friendly, by return. We look forward to our next stay! Thank you again!

  • "Lovely house in a great location, cosy and quiet."

    Beautifully presented. Sedbergh itself a lovely place. A few practical suggestions to make it even better: 1. Lounge TV was too complicated to use. In part, this comes with the advent of subscription services but this one is something else. Unable to access Sky and Netflix (previous occupier had not logged out), Freeview (other than BBC3!) and even any Terrestrial. Something called "LG App" had to be got past to get what we eventually did, BBC iPlayer. 2. Oven too complicated to use. Someone had hand-written in additional instructions but these did not provide the answer. The manual is badly-transcribed into English. Eventually we worked it out. 3. Skylight windows (Velux) MUST have blinds. Most people want to sleep a full night in the dark. A decent lettings agency has to inform a property owner to "Keep the tech. simple" and "Sleep requires quiet, warmth, a comfortable bed/bedding and darkness".

About the location


Kendal 11.5 miles; Kirkby Lonsdale 11.8 miles, Hawes 15.8 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.
