    “This cottage is a gem of a find!”

    There were 8 adults… plenty of room! The kitchen/ dining was so practical and stylish … plenty of utensils etc… so many dinners made there. Lovely and warm ( the weather was cold and wet some of the days)… a very useful utility for coats/ shoes etc.. a good sized garden at the back which our dog loved… I can’t recommend this cottage enough… 5*

Situated on the outskirts of town, this charming cottage offers a convenient location just a short drive from the M6, ensuring easy access to explore the wonders of the surrounding countryside. Immerse yourself in the beauty of the Howgills as you gaze out from the cottage, while the rear reveals captivating views of Frostrow. Inside, you'll be enchanted by the cottage's character, featuring exposed stone walls, rustic beams, and captivating feature fireplaces, and with four well-appointed bedrooms, Burnt Mill Cottage is an ideal retreat for families or friends seeking to embark on adventures in the area. After a fulfilling day exploring the majestic Howgills or nature-filled Dales, allow the warmth of the woodburning stove to embrace you, as you unwind with ease; meanwhile, the designated chef of your group can prepare a hearty meal in the well-equipped kitchen, featuring a Range cooker. Indulge in a leisurely dinner around the generous eight-seater dining table before venturing outside to bask in the fading sunlight on the patio, overlooking the charming rear garden, and as the night sky unfolds, revel in the celestial display of stars overhead. Burnt Mill Cottage resides just a short drive from Sedbergh's town centre, where you can stock up on essential supplies or enjoy a delightful evening at one of the inviting pubs such as The Red Lion, The Black Bull, or The Dalesman Country Inn, not to mention the authentic Italian cuisine of Il Forno.

About the location

SEDBERGH

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.
