About Ellerbank Cottage

Perfect for couples looking to escape away, Ellerbank Cottage has one king-size bedroom and has been beautifully designed just for two. This cosy garden retreat has a log burner for winter breaks and plenty of outside space for when the sunshines. It sits in the tranquil hamlet of Gawthrop, just half a mile walk from the picturesque Cumbrian cobbled village of Dent, providing the perfect base for exploring both the Yorkshire Dales National Park on the doorstep, and the Lake District National Park within easy driving distance.

The cottage nestles within the ground of Ellerbank House and affords magnificent views that encompass both ends of Dentdale. It is just perfect for those with a passion for spectacular scenery and walking. Whether you spend your days exploring the Dales and Lakes by foot or car, there are no end of things to see and do to make every day of your holiday special.

Dentdale's breathtaking beauty is sure to overwhelm you from the moment you arrive. Drenched in history and culture, there is a strong sense of pride amongst the locals living in this picturesque part of the Yorkshire Dales. Popular amongst walkers, artists, cyclists and photographers, Dent's cobbled village is at the very heart of the dale and just a half mile walk pleasant walk along the River Dee or through the fields from Ellerbank Cottage. The village offers a choice of three pubs for a local pint or meal out, two cafes for a cup of tea and slice of hearty cake once you have worked up an appetite, and the Heritage Centre where you can find out about local life.

The dale is a stunning area with a myriad of footpaths criss-crossing the landscape abundant with wildlife. It's country lanes, off-road tracks and the Pennine Cycleway (accessible from Dent village) provide superb opportunities for cyclists; or for something a little more leisurely, hop on the Settle-Carlisle Railway from Dent station (the highest in the country!) and visit Leeds or Carlisle. The rail journey offers stunning views which have won it the accolade of being one of the world's most scenic train journeys, so it's a 'must' for any holiday itinerary.

With amazing walking, jaw-dropping scenery and an abundance of attractions within easy reach both within the Yorkshire Dales and Cumbria, you will not want to leave Ellerbank Cottage and this tranquil paradise.
