Bedroom 1 has a bathroom en-suite and there is another bathroom: both have a bath, wc and basin. There are a number of characterful features in the cottage such as an Elizabethan staircase and the remains of a bread oven. As well as numerous books, games and puzzles, there is also an electric organ to provide entertainment for cosy evenings in.

There are views from all windows, with views from the rooms on the front particularly spectacular. Outside there is a small garden and patio immediately in front of the cottage and, on the other side of the track (public footpath), there is a car parking area for at least two cars and a wilder garden, which has a stream running through it. Due to the unevenness of the floors and the resulting steps around the cottage, it may not be suitable for those with mobility problems. Cot and high chair are available on request. The cottage has the capacity to comfortably sleep more than 6 but numbers above this may put a strain on the private water supply and sewerage/septic tank system: please contact the owner to discuss this further if your group is large.

Dent Village with village store, pub and post office is 2½ miles away although a more local country pub is just over a mile away. Other services are at Sedbergh (8 miles) or Kendal (19 miles). Dent Station, on the famous Settle-Carlisle railway line, is 1 mile away and the Dales Way runs through the dale, at the bottom of the drive.

The cottage suits those looking for a quiet rural retreat with lots of walks from the doorstep. It is also suitable for those looking for a base from which to explore both the Dales and the Lake District.

Location description from owner

The England region

The Yorkshire Dales National Park is an expansive area of hill country in the north of England straddling the central Pennines in the counties of North Yorkshire and Cumbria, rising in the Three Peaks to over 2,300ft (700 metres). Rivers have cut deep valleys (dales) of which there are over 20 named examples, each distinctive in character and atmosphere. The area was established as a National Park in 1954, and covers an area of 1,762 square kilometres (680 square miles). It has outstanding scenery, a range of wildlife habitats and a rich cultural heritage. It is a fantastic outdoor arena for recreation and peaceful relaxation and a haven for wildlife. It is one of the most important areas of the United Kingdom for its rich and diverse wildlife heritage and has the largest area of nationally and internationally important habitats of any National Park. This ranges from the wildflower rich hay meadows and pastures in the dale bottoms, through to the moorland fringe with its rush pastures so important for wading birds and the windswept uplands with their open heather moorland and blanket bog, to the unique limestone pavements. It is also home to a wide range of species, many of which are rare or scarce nationally. Geology and natural processes have been the fundamental force behind the creation of this dramatic landscape and of the variety found within it, from the classic limestone (Karst) scenery in the south, the distinctive stepped profiles of the main peaks, the extensive moorland plateaux and the western Howgills, a series of grassy rounded hills with deep ravines that result from different geology and contrast markedly in appearance from the rest of the National Park. In contrast to the stillness and tranquility of the moors and meadows, there are numerous cascading streams and dramatic waterfalls, bringing movement and sound.

Dent

Dentdale is one of the smaller and quieter dales and where you will find yourself immersed in natural beauty, stunning scenery, a depth of heritage and the culture of a Dales community that attracts artists and lovers of wildlife and landscapes. Spend time strolling from the cottage itself through beautiful meadows and lush riverside pastures, or exploring the surrounding hills. The Dales Way long distance path runs along the length of the valley, as does the River Dee. Dent (4km) is the only village in Dentdale, with its delightful cobbled streets. Further afield are other beautiful dales and picturesque towns. Dentdale's position in the Western dales allows for easy visits to the Lake District too.

Getting around

A car is recommended for sightseeing and exploring the dales but if you enjoy walking or cycling, you could spend a week exploring Dentdale and the Whernside area on foot or by bike, or Sedbergh/Kendal, with the aid of the local bus service (once or twice a week depending on season). We are within 2 km of Dent Station, on the famous Settle-Carlisle line and with trains straight through to Leeds.

The cottage will be prepared for your stay by our housekeeper. We do not live close by ourselves but will be in contact before your arrival to give you essential information, like the code to the key box, and are always on the other end of the telephone should you need help or advice.
