    “Our cottage stay in Sedbergh”

    Have given 3 stars but would ideally have given 3.5. We think the property is GOOD so sits between 3 (average) and 4 (very good).The cottage is in a good location in Sedbergh. It is next door to the tourist information office and very close to Joss Lane carpark which is really useful for unloading / loading suitcases / bags etc. We were there from 8th to 15th August. It costs just £10 for a week’s car parking. Pay at the car park ticket machine. Found the cottage to be very clean and ...

    Have given 3 stars but would ideally have given 3.5. We think the property is GOOD so sits between 3 (average) and 4 (very good).The cottage is in a good location in Sedbergh. It is next door to the tourist information office and very close to Joss Lane carpark which is really useful for unloading / loading suitcases / bags etc. We were there from 8th to 15th August. It costs just £10 for a week’s car parking. Pay at the car park ticket machine. Found the cottage to be very clean and welcoming. Cottage is very quaint and has decent lounge / diner with gas effect log burner. Lounge has very nice large screen smart TV. Area is not blessed with lots of TV channels and the property does not have wifi so, at times, we connected to the TV using our own mobile hotspot. Very good 4G mobile connection using EE. Excellent kitchen facilities – all looks pretty new. Oven. Hob unit. Toaster. Fridge but no freezer. Washing machine and dishwasher. Microwave. Crockery and cutlery. Tea towels, hand towels, bath towels and bedding / pillows all there. Staircase to upstairs a little narrow and steep but good handrail. Two bedrooms. Double bed in one, two single beds in the other. Smart TV in main bedroom and, again, could connect TV to internet etc. via own mobile hotspot. Good sized wardrobe and drawer units for clothes etc. Bathroom clean and tidy. Overall, a very decent and clean little cottage. We had two issues with our stay in the property. The first issue occurred when there was a massive rainstorm one evening. Rain drops were falling down the chimney and hitting some metallic surface somewhere in the lounge log effect gas fire. It sounded like someone pinging a small bell and that went on for a few hours until it stopped raining. Drove us nuts !! The second, and more annoying, issue for us was using the shower facility. The property is advertised with shower over but is, in reality, a shower hose / head that needs to be held. Water pressure is great. Unfortunately there is no shower screen, shower curtain or shower head vertical rail so it’s very difficult to have a shower holding the shower head in one hand, washing with the other hand and not getting the floor flooded at the same time. So, so awkward to do and is really not acceptable. The property owner should really give consideration to resolving this problem. Fitting a cheap, simple vertical shower rail and shower curtain around the bath would completely get rid of the issue. A very simple and quick thing to do. Our daughter and her partner recently moved to live in Sedbergh so, from now on, we will be looking to book somewhere to stay in / around Sedbergh a few times a year. We would be quite happy to re-book this cottage again but only when / if we are told that the shower facility has been improved and that raindrops can no longer fall down the chimney. If these two issues were to be resolved we would definitely give it a 4 star rating.

The property

Mini Milestone is a tastefully furnished, mid-terrace cottage that lies in the small town of Sedbergh, just on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales.

Renovated to a high standard, the cottage would appeal to a small family or two couples who are looking for a relaxing break to this beautiful region.

After a day of exploring, put your feet up and relax next to the cosy gas woodburner in the sitting room.

The contemporary kitchen sparkles with its granite worktops and white units, offering a resourceful setup for your culinary requests.

The double and twin bedrooms can be found upstairs, which are served by the family bathroom.

It must be noted that the shower is not over the bath and must be hand-held.

Stepping outside there is a small patio area, an ideal spot to dine alfresco style.

The central location of the cottage means there are a range of amenities available from the doorstep.

Wander the narrow streets of Sedbergh and you will find many independent bookshops, traditional pubs and a Victorian woollen mill that holds an interesting exhibition of fine art.

Walk in the clouds atop of the spectacular Howgill Fells, offering a display of complete natural beauty.

A 20 minute drive away are the market towns of Kendal and Kirkby Lonsdale.

Whom will provide for a greater range of shopping and eating choices, while a visit to the popular Lake District National Park promises more beautiful landscapes, accompanied by the touristy villages of Bowness and Ambleside.

An ideal base for recharging and exploring Cumbria and the surrounding areas.

About the location

SEDBERGH

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.
