We are astonished that you would let a property knowing that extensive disruption was going to take place.We consider the payments made were an insult for a completely ruined week.We eventually abandoned our stay and left early when the access to the front gate was barred and we had to access through the back car parks. We have used your company many times and are amazed that you would let this situation occur.

    Thank you for your feedback, if I may I would like to respond. As personally explained when I visited you, the yard is run by a residents group, of which we are members. Unfortunately the local paving stone within the yard has been gradually deteriorating, leaving holes and causing a health and safety issue, specifically for one of the elderly residents that requires a frame to walk, the group decided earlier this year to replace the flags and commissioned a local builder to undertake the work. Due to the nature of the work, he needed dry weather to complete the task and informed the group on Monday, ‘that the weather looked good and he would attend on Wednesday and if needed Thursday’. The work took both days, while I agree there was some disruption for which I again apologise, the builder was asked; not to start until lights were on in the cottage, that any sawing of the paving was done remotely, and that the cement was mixed remotely so that there was no noise, and that access was maintained continuously from either the front or rear of the yard, which he did. All digging was done by hand and materials carried in again by hand. I came to see you personally and explained the situation and gave you a total refund for the two days where the builder undertook work, which you accepted. I accept that there was some disruption on the last two days of your stay which we tried to minimise, however, I am pleased that you chose to stay until your scheduled time of departure and hope you enjoyed Sedbergh. Thank you Julie and Brian Property Owner

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.
