    • “This is a lovely and welcoming cottage. It is very clean although a small cottage it will comfortably sleep four in the two double bedrooms. It has central heating and an open fire, there is a tv with freeview and many dvd's. There is a very well equipped kitchen and a lounge/diner.There is also a very small but nice gravel garden which is accessed via the first floor back door.The cottage is on the main road, which is very narrow and larger vehicles appear very close to the cottage, something to consider with dogs or young children, obviously keeping the front door locked alleviates any danger. The cottage opens out onto a very narrow foot path. The village is a sleepy little place, it has a butchers, chemist and green grocers, and a spar is about 10 minutes walk away. a nearby (12 miles away) market town has a booths supermarket ( a northern Waitrose clone) so the cottage is well placed. It is close to both the Dales and the Lakes so a good situation. There is parking a short walk away from the cottage. The cottage is called Sheep Fold and there are glorious views of sheep grazing from the bedroom windows. We found the rather kitsch decor a bit OTT, the doormat is decorated with sheep and then every other surface is crowded with the sheep motive, even the crockery, we found this amusing and the owners are certainly not advocates of the less is more motive. This is a small quibble though as overall the cottage is lovely, the village is lovely as well and i hope to return one day.”

    • “This is such a welcoming cottage. We were very touched by the treat for our dog, the milk in the fridge and the local biscuits to greet us after a long journey. The cottage is very well placed for the Lakes and the Dales and Sedbergh itself has some lovely walks. Very dog friendly everywhere we went, we will definitely be back.”

    • “A winner in every way. Brilliant comfy beds. Would highly recommend for small party . A previous reviewer commented door steps straight onto street which it does. Just need to train your dog ! Double glazing very effective. Perfect location. Lovely pubs at Ravenstonedale for excellent food. Red Lion in Sedbergh good simple fare. Farfield Mill (1.5 miles )good coffee house for dayt time eats. Update lounge picture on first page of trip advisor as it shows old TV .”

    • “A first visit to Sheepfold cottage & to Sedbergh. We will be back to Sheepfold, the cottage had everything we needed. Took our little dog'Lucky' with us & she loved it too ( and the treats). The cottage was well stocked, beds firm, kitchen well equipped. We are walkers and the hills were within walking distance of the cottage. The open fire was a luxury. Looking to return later this year.”

    • “Stayed here for 3 nights recently. This really is a lovely little cottage, with a 'really nice feel'! Guests obviously buy into the sheep theme, and it seems that it's become a bit of a tradition to leave an addition to the sheep family on leaving, we certainly did! It has everything you need and the wifi connection was fab! It's also very dog friendly, a big dog bed and treats were left for our little dog and the little garden/patio at the back is totally secure. It's a shame that in the end we left our dog with a friend as he would have loved it - there are plenty of dog friendly walks from the doorstep and nearly everywhere in Sedbergh is dog friendly too. The garden, whilst small, is really pretty and certainly big enough to sit out in. Sedbergh is a really friendly little town and the surrounding areas are absolutely stunning. We were very lucky to have glorious weather too. I really would recommend this cottage, and will certainly return in the future.”

    • “This cosy cottage may be small but it has everything you need - the kitchen's particularly well equipped and it's great to have the real fire to warm you up after a day's walking. The village is friendly too. The only downside is not having parking right outside or next to the property, however, there is free parking on the roadside just a few yards away. Great location, easy access for M5 and the Lakes, especially Kendal, and what a joy neighbouring Kirby Lonsdale was - lovely shops and cafes.”

The cottage itself was cosy, comfortable and full of charm and had everything you needed. We walked the fells and the Howgills a must whilst you stay there. The Red Lion pub offers great hime cooked food and a great atmosphere. Will definetly be going again.”

    • “Lovely little cottage, nicely equipped. Personally found the double bed to be quite hard. Front door opens onto street which makes it awkward getting dogs in and out.”

    • “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sheepfold Cottage in Sedburgh. The cottage was very comfortable and our boys loved counting all the sheep! We really enjoyed the open fire. Sedburgh is a delightful village in stunning countryside and we enjoyed many walks in the area and lovely food and drinks in the many cafes and pubs. We also loved spending a few hours exploring the book shops of Sedburgh. A lovely break, would definitely recommend and maybe return again.”

    • “People renting cottage need to be more aware of parking problems in Sedbergh. We didn't have a problem last year, but this year, we had to use public pay car park on several occasions, £1 an hour is costly addition.”

Regional Information

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.
