About Syke Fold Country House

Syke Fold Country House sleeps ten guests in five bedrooms (three are en-suite) and is located just two miles from the cobbled centre of Dent village offering three popular pubs. Affording a beautiful rural setting this delightful holiday home is set in a large garden and offers views over Dentdale with Whernside (the highest of The Three Peaks) providing a majestic backdrop.

The Cumbrian village of Dent attracts walkers and tourists all year round with its quaint little cobbled streets, stunning scenery and miles of fabulous walks. Visit the Heritage Centre in the village, enjoy a pint of locally brewed Dent Bitter, take a ride on the famous Carlisle to Settle Railway which stops at Dent's railway station just outside the village (the highest of its kind in the country), or relax over a mug of tea and a slice of cake in Meadowside Cafe after a walk by the river.

For those who want to explore the wider area, there are a multitude of attractions for day trips out with both the Yorkshire Dales National Park on the doorstep and the Lake District National Park just fifteen miles away by car. If you have bought new walking boots for the trip, test them out on the five mile circular route that passes through Flintergill and Dentdale, or challenge yourself on a hilly 11-mile walk that takes in the three peaks Whernside, Great Coum and Crag Hill. For those who prefer to get about on two wheels, the Pennine Cycleway is accessible from the village, or mountain bikers can head to the Forest of Bowland where they are a number of different tracks to enjoy.

Note that there are security cameras covering the parking areas within the grounds.

Syke Fold Country House is a welcoming retreat for fmailies and friends at any time of the year and two dogs are welcome too.
