Cottage
A Grade 2 listed character cottage situated in the upper part of Dentdale, one of the quieter, yet more beautiful, dales in the west of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is in a peaceful, elevated, south facing position, with commanding views over the dale and surrounding hills, with nationally listed walks from the porch. The cottage is comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The ground floor accommodation consists of sitting room (with multi-fuel stove), dining room (both with ample seating), kitchen with separate breakfast area (seating includes a church pew and an organ bench), pantry and boot room (bikes could be stored here). On the first floor there are three bedrooms: Bedroom 1, with a king-sized bed, one single bed and a full-size sofa bed, Bedroom 2 with a double bed and B...A Grade 2 listed character cottage situated in the upper part of Dentdale, one of the quieter, yet more beautiful, dales in the west of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is in a peaceful, elevated, south facing position, with commanding views over the dale and surrounding hills, with nationally listed walks from the porch. The cottage is comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The ground floor accommodation consists of sitting room (with multi-fuel stove), dining room (both with ample seating), kitchen with separate breakfast area (seating includes a church pew and an organ bench), pantry and boot room (bikes could be stored here). On the first floor there are three bedrooms: Bedroom 1, with a king-sized bed, one single bed and a full-size sofa bed, Bedroom 2 with a double bed and Bedroom 3 with two single beds. Bedroom 1 has a (newly fitted as of May 2018) bathroom en-suite with electric shower, basin and wc and there is another bathroom with bath, electric shower, basin and wc, also re-fitted in May 2018. 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.More

About the neighbourhood
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.
