    “We have had a lovely holiday at Piggy Bank cottage, property was clean with modern appliances and the over all standard was to a good quality.”

    My only criticism is the decor in the lounge is looking a bit tired and dated compared to the rest of the cottage. The electric log burning effect fire looks odd against and fire surround that in my opinion isn't very attractive and not original to the property. The sofa's are comfortable but a little tired looking (please don't be offend this is solely my personal opinion.) We found the main double bed was a little to hard and i couldn't sleep on it. So i ended up in the double bed under the childrens bunk bed which i slept soundly. I understand everyone is different when it it comes to beds so this could be down to personal preference. So I've still rated 5 out of 5 for over all comfort. The bathroom was nice but the toilet seat doesn't seem to fit the toilet properly and it can slip when you sit on it so we we're careful when using it. Having said all the above I would still highly recommend the cottage and would stay again. I would score it 98% out if 100. It had a very cosy warm feel to it which is perfect for us when we've been out hiking fells all day. We found the the shower and bath excellent. A nice morden and extremely clean bath room. The kitchen and facility were excellent to a good standard and very clean. The property overall was extremely clean. Great carpets through out soft under foot. When we hoovered the hoover smelled a bit doggy, We don't have dogs so maybe it was more obvious to us but just wanted to bring it the owners attention. Bedding and towels were great quality and were clean and fresh. Good off street parking with a pretty little court yard and a very short walking distance to shops and pubs. Sedbergh village itself was smaller than we thougt but has everything you need. Powells fruit n veg shop has very fresh and lovely produce. The Dalesman Inn pub was our favourite for eating out and drinks. Nice sandwich shops and coffee shops. Nice Florist and craft makers shops. Farfield Mill is a fantastic place to visit if you like arts and crafts. It was full of craft makers who are happy to share and discuss their creative trades with stunning works of art. Over all we have had a fabulous holiday and would probably stay for 2 weeks next time as we couldn't fit everything in that we wanted to do. I hope I've not offend the owners of this property i just wanted to give my honest opinion in this review and constructive feed back. So to summarise this is a lovely cosy clean and well kept cottage to stay and we recommend it to anyone who loves the Yorkshiredales and wants a good base to stay. Sedbergh itself is a superb location for walker's and this lovely cosy cottage is set in the very scenic location with plenty to do you just need to go out and explore. Thank you piggy bank cottage for a welcoming stay. We shall be back.

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.
