About this location
The Cumbria region
Dentdale is a spectacular river valley and Dee Side House is located in Upper Dentdale within a mile of the source of the River Dee but also within 2 miles of the sources of the River Ure and the River Ribble. Views are simply stunning and local walks are spectacular with one close-by visiting a farmyard featuring exotic poultry before proceeding to the north portal of Blea Moor Tunnel where the footpath follows the course of the railway on its way to Ribblehead and its famous viaduct.
During the summer there are as many as four steam trains a week, often with famous express locomotives such as Tornado and Sir Nigel Gresley. Dent Station at 1150ft is England’s highest mainline station and the station furthest (5 miles) from the village it is named after. In 1947 a train was buried in snow close to Dent Station for several weeks.
Within 10 minutes drive is the spectacular White Scar Cave which features the longest show cave in the UK. Ideal for a visit on a rainy day. The charming cobbled streets of Hawes are a similar distance away. Market day is Tuesday and other attractions include the Wensleydale Creamery (where the celebrated cheeses are made) and Outhwaites Rope Factory.
The local museum includes Hawes Station which is scheduled to reopen one day when the Wensleydale Railway is eventually extended back to join the Settle & Carlisle at nearby Garsdale Station which has recently been restored by the Friends of the Settle & Carlisle Railway. A mile north of Hawes is Hardraw which features one of England’s highest waterfalls at the Green Dragon Inn which hosts annual folk music and brassband festivals. The nearby Simonstone Hall and Old Dairy Farm are both superb eating places. Two miles north of Hardraw is the superb Buttertubs Pass (one of Clarkson’s favourite roads) which leads up towards England’s highest pub, the Tan Hill Inn.
The uniquely charming cobbled village of Dent is six miles to the west and features two pubs, the George and Dragon and the Sun, the latter of which features live folk music on Saturday evenings. The village hosts Dentdale Music & Beer Festival on the last weekend in June and Dent Show and Dent Gala on August Bank Holiday weekend – all of these being free-entry events. Dent Village Heritage Centre is well worth a visit and features a scale model of the valley complete with S&C model railway.
