About Oak Cottage

Oak Cottage is wonderfully stylish, but guests would be forgiven for eschewing the comfort of indoors to be outside from dawn until dusk, admiring the breathtaking views from the terrace. The period cottage has been updated and modernised to welcome up to four guests in two bedrooms and has a layout that is ideal for couples or friends. The village shop, cafes and two friendly pubs - The Sun Inn and the George & Dragon - are all within a five-minute walk.

Dent is a fantastic place to stay while exploring the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Its cobbled streets, real ale pubs, and sweeping views make it a favourite with walkers and mountain bikers, but there is also plenty to offer visitors who come for the history, food and atmosphere. Dent is just south of Sedburgh, sitting on the Dales Way long-distance footpath, the River Dee, and the Settle-to-Carlisle Railway, so there are lots of ways to get around if you choose to leave the car behind.

North of the village, Sedbergh is the biggest town in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and a good choice for a day out. It is at the foot of the Howgills and fans of Alfred Wainwright will recognise the spectacular mountain range which attracts keen walkers. Sedburgh is England's only dedicated book town and there are lots of specialist booksellers as well as independent shops, cafes and pubs, and a weekly market every Wednesday.

In addition to being in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Dent is only a 40-minute drive from Kendal and the southern area of the Lake District National Park. Morecambe Bay is less than an hour's drive for a day at the seaside, while the North Pennines and the Forest of Bowland are also within driving distance.

The scenery of the Yorkshire Dales, and Dentdale in particular, never fails to raise the spirits. Whether you are there in spring when the meadows are full of wildflowers, see the lush summer fields and pastures, or admire the peace of the fells in winter, the views are far-reaching and spectacular. Oak Cottage is perfect all year round, with its fantastic location, spacious terrace to enjoy in the summer and a cosy log burner that adds to the welcoming atmosphere in cold weather.
