    “Fantastic property.”

    Warm and cosy, plenty of space, comfy beds , brilliant showers and lots of lovely soft towels. It was ideal for our family group spending quality time together in such lovely surroundings. Seeing all the newborn lambs in the fields around the barn was an added bonus. Thank you Dawn for your warm welcome. Hope to return next year.

The property

Sedbergh 3 miles. A stone-built barn conversion located on a traditional Westmorland farmstead, set in a peaceful location in the tiny hamlet of Howgill, in the Lune Valley, just three miles from the market town of Sedbergh. Recently fully converted to an extremely high standard, this outstanding Sedbergh cottage provides first class holiday accommodation in a beautiful location. One of our premier Cumbrian cottages, the conversion has been carried out to the highest specification with superb insulation and underfloor heating systems. The modern styling and design at this cottage near Sedbergh is enhanced by the full-length glass windows extending over two floors which provide guests with far-reaching, inspiring views of the nearby fells. The large modern kitchen and dining area provides a welcoming area to relax in after a long day exploring the many footpaths and bridleways of this wonderful walking area. The main sitting room is spacious and comfortable, whilst the four bedrooms, two of which have en-suite facilities, provide great flexibility for any group. This Cumbrian cottage is ideal for discovering Wainwright's beloved Howgills, the nearby Cautley Spout, Britain's highest waterfall, and dramatic Dentdale, while the local area is home to many varieties of wildlife including buzzards and deer. With the Farfield Art and Heritage Centre, and the towns of Hawes, Kirkby Lonsdale, Bowness and Kendal all within easy reach, this lovely Sedbergh cottage provides an ideal base in which to relax, unwind and to get away from it all and enjoy the Cumbrian countryside.

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.
