The Coach House sleeps four guests in two bedrooms and has open-plan style living on the ground floor. Detached and sitting within the grounds of Cowgill Grange, this welcoming holiday cottage affords a peaceful position in the little hamlet of Cowgill within Dentdale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and has been beautifully presented to offer a wonderfully relaxed yet stylish environment.
Outdoor enthusiasts will love the location of The Coach House. Cowgill is close to Sedbergh and within walking distance of the mighty River Dee and less than a mile from the riverside Sportsman’s Inn pub. People from Yorkshire agree with the Norwegian saying (coined in English by the famous fell-walker, Alfred Wainwright) that there is no bad weather, only bad clothing. The weather in the Yorkshire Dales is gloriously unpredictable - misty mornings give way to sunny afternoons, and a picnic can go from relaxing to unforgettable with the sudden arrival of dramatic rainclouds. Instead of wasting time waiting for “good” weather, you can be out in all conditions - taking to the hilltops when it’s fine and staying in lower, sheltered areas when it’s not-so-fine.
Guests can walk to Dent Station, the highest mainline station in England, in around 20 minutes, and there are miles of footpaths, mountain bike trails and bridleways to navigate, taking you from one stunning scene to the next. Alternatively, give you legs a break and climb aboard the Settle-Carlisle Railway for even more spectacular views.
Dent, with its charming cobbled lanes, is about four miles from The Coach House, while Sedbergh, Kendal, and Kirkby Lonsdale are all within 20 miles. Staying at Cowgill means that you’re also close to the Lake District National Park and the Forest of Bowland, so there’s no way you’ll run out of ideas for ways to have fun.
