About Gibbs Hall Barn

Gibbs Hall Barn is a gorgeous, character filled cottage with a large private garden that is surrounded by the beautiful Cumbrian countryside in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. It is spacious enough to comfortably accommodate up to seven people - perfect if you have a large family or are travelling with friends - yet period features like original exposed beams, thick stone walls and an open fireplace make it welcoming and cosy even for couples. Less than three miles from Dent, the cottage is the ideal compromise between escaping to the countryside while staying within easy reach of great pubs and a well-stocked village store.

Dent is well-known for different reasons. If you appreciate history, you may have heard of Dent’s cobbled Main Street, impressive Norman church and the scandal created by “The Terrible Knitters of Dent”. If you love being outdoors, then the beauty of the surrounding landscape may have brought Dent to your attention. The village is in the Yorkshire Dales National Park yet also close to the Lake District National Park, and there are endless miles of walking and cycling trails. Fancy a pint? Real ales feature in both village pubs. Dent also has two thriving tea rooms/cafes and an impressive local museum.

As charming as the villages are, it is the stunning landscape that will remain a lasting memory of your holiday in Dent. The incredible scenery has inspired artists, poets and writers for centuries and you will understand why as you stand on a high bluff, enjoying the rewards of your effort in a view that stretches for miles, or meander beside the river spotting heron, ducks and other waterfowl. Both the Dales Way footpath and the Yorkshire Dales Cycleway pass through Dent, and you can find more information on local walks, cycling and mountain biking routes at the visitor information centre in nearby Sedbergh.

The Settle-Carlisle Railway is a treat for all ages. Not only is it an excellent way to enjoy the scenery (the route goes over two impressive viaducts at Dent Head and Arten Gill) but it is a relaxing way to get to Carlisle or Leeds for an exciting day of shopping and sightseeing. Dent station, at more than 1,100 feet above sea level, is the highest train station in England. Visit White Scar Cave, or spend the day happily wandering and browsing the shops in Sedbergh or Kirkby Lonsdale.

The location of Gibbs Hall Barn means that you could quite happily leave the car behind and head out walking or cycling in a new direction every day. However, There are some fantastic local attractions to visit if you feel like having a different sort of day out.
