    “There was a lot of confusion about where to park for the property, in the details it suggested you could purchase a weekly parking ticket for the nearby car park.”

    I contacted the owner to ask if he knew how to get one and he suggested not to bother as there were parking spots in the surrounding streets. But unfortunately there was a county cricket match on at the local private school for 4 days so it would have been an impossible task to park anywhere near the property. So I contacted the information centre that is in the car park to see about getting a weekly ticket and they said it was up to the landlord to apply for one. So I tried to phone the owner ...

    I contacted the owner to ask if he knew how to get one and he suggested not to bother as there were parking spots in the surrounding streets.

So I contacted the information centre that is in the car park to see about getting a weekly ticket and they said it was up to the landlord to apply for one. So I tried to phone the owner 4 times without success, he was always out or in a meeting so I e-mailed instead and got a reply a few days before going to the cottage. They told me just to park in the streets nearby so we assumed they were not going to apply for a weekly ticket for us. So on arrival to the property we parked in the car park and enquired in the information centre to see if we could get a weekly pass ourselves and was told you can purchase one at the machine in the car park yourself !! So we purchased a ticket for the week. Why didn't the owner know this ? it is his property and he should know all this. So on entering the cottage there was supposed to be a welcome pack, all we got was a folder with a little information about the cottage and how to operate the appliances and a bit about the area plus a little green parking permit from the local council, no information as to what it was exactly for, we assumed it was to do with parking in the streets as some areas have residents only parking areas. But on enquiring in the information centre as to where it entitled you to park it was apparently for the car park !! so we had paid for one but the owner had purchased one anyway !!! why didn't he tell us, he had my mobile number a text would have done. But we had purchased our ticket before entering the property so had no idea. Very poor communication from him. We did tell the lady who services the property of our disappointment about it and she spoke to him the next day and he told her to tell us he would sort it with us directly, we have heard nothing from him and don't expect to either. Wont be booking his property again. Cottage otherwise was clean and comfortable, only other issue was no shower but we knew this and had asked for a rubber bath mat to ensure no slipping while standing in the bath as my husband is unable to sit in one, he wouldn't be able to get up again. There wasn't one supplied but the lady who came got us one, or we would have had to purchase one ourselves. Beautiful area though, lovely little town, very friendly locals. Would recommend the area and the cottage now has a car parking permit !!!

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.
