About Blake Rigg

Attractive and impressive, Blake Rigg sleeps six guests and is a detached country cottage with immense charm dating as far back as the 17th Century. Affording an enviable position, Blake Rigg has picturesque views over Deepdale and nestles on the slopes of Whernside, providing an ideal retreat for those seeking peace and tranquility. Whilst feeling away from it all, Dent's quaint cobbled village (with a choice of three pubs) is just two miles from Blake Rigg and guests can enjoy fantastic walks from the front door.

The hilly cobbled streets, picturesque stone cottages and beautiful surrounding countryside attracts walkers and visitors to the Cumbrian village of Dent all year round. For those who come to explore the local footpaths you will not be disappointed! The five mile circular walk that passes through Flintergill and Dentdale is a good warm up to the more hilly eleven mile hike that includes the three peaks of Whernside, Great Coum and Crag Hill. If you would rather explore the scenery from the comfort of a train hop on board the Carlisle to Settle Railway which passes over the impressive Ribblehead's viaduct. End the day with a slice of cake and Yorkshire cup of tea at the Meadowside Café.

The Yorkshire Dales is an outdoor enthusiasts’ paradise with a number of walks, cycling routes and even caves to explore. Just a little further afield you will find even more trails, tracks and routes in Lake District National Park and the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. If you want to hang up your walking boots for a day visit the pretty market town of Hawes – home to the famous Yorkshire Wensleydale cheese as well as a number of galleries, antique shops and eateries.

It is always a pleasure to return to the comfort of Blake Rigg after an exciting day exploring this beautiful part of the country.
