Nice Cottage in Excellent Location
We stayed over New year and had a great time. The cottage is well equipped and clean and the village is quaint and well located for lots of attractions. The cottage has three levels with the living room on the third floor and the kitchen on the second. This wasn't a problem for us but needs to be remembered if you are less mobile. The central heating worked really well - so well that we only used the log burner a couple of times and that was only for an hour or so (more out of novelty factor than necessity). The village has plenty of places to eat and drink (good real ale in three places). The Indian and Chinese restaurants have closed down but there is now an Italian restaurant (where the Indian used to be we think). The nearest car park is about 50 yards away and cost £10 for the week. There is a 4 mile circular walk to the top of the Winder Hill and back via the pubs in the village which can be done from the front door of the cottage. It took us about 3 very leisurely hours (plus pub time) - great views across to Morecambe bay and over to Yorkshire. There are plenty of other places to visit within a short drive.

Beautiful cottage in a Beautiful location
This is a very deceptive and characterful cottage. It has loads of space but is very cosy and very clean and nicely decorated. There is everything in the cottage that you need including a games room and area for your dirty boots and outside coats etc without encroaching on your living space. All your needs have been catered for and the views are spectacular. Sedbergh is a lovely location with all the amenities you need, surrounded by beautiful landscape. I cannot wait to go and stay again and would recommend the cottage to everyone - it has the wow factor.

Great location in the Dales and close to the Lake District
As a family of four (including young adult children) our stay after Easter had mixed weather but plenty of things to do in the village and access to stunning scenery within a few minutes walk or drive. Kendal is 30 minutes away and the drive to and from was gorgeous with snow-capped peaks in the lakes and the view of the high dales. The walk to Winder was good with lots of wildlife, small streams and views in every direction to keep your motivation going to get to the top. Easier coming back down and refreshments in every direction with all the cafes, coffee shops. On the Roll is well worth a visit with salads, sandwiches and hot baguettes. Great way to refuel yourself before heading back out again. Plenty of spaces to take breaks too with the antique shop, the book shops and Information centre. The wood burner was needed once or twice for those cold evenings and much preferable to central heating (although that was available). We'd stay again and hope to soon.

family holiday in a charming old cottage
Stayed in cottage with family for one week. The cottage has everything you would need and only 5 miles from the motorway. The cottage is old and full of character and I would recommend it for a stay. The only bad point of the cottage was the stained and ripped bed sheet in the attic bedroom which I would not have slept on but did find another one in the cupboard but really should be replaced. The cottage is also close to all the attractions in the lake district and the dales. There is a supermarket and little shops nearby and was very quite. We tried the indian takeaway nearby which was good and the chinese takeaway which was pretty bad but maybe it was an off night,

Beautiful cottage and very friendly village
We had a fantastic bank holiday break here. The cottage is very clean and spacious and located in the centre of the village, as well as with in easy reach of some brilliant walks. Everyone we met was very friendly and helpful. Local food outlets were great and I had the best Sunday lunch I've had in a long time. I am looking forward to a return visit!!!
