About Weathercock Cottage

Weathercock Cottage sleeps six guests in three bedrooms and is an attractive holiday cottage with a hot tub, perfectly placed just a mile from the small market town of Sedbergh on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in Cumbria. Ideal for exploring both the Dales and the nearby Lake District National Park (Windermere is just twenty miles away), this is an excellent holiday choice for friends and families with an abundance of wonderful walks and attractions for great days out.

Whatever the weather, this delightful cottage has all the right ingredients for a relaxing break. Bubble your aches away after a long day walking in the hot tub whilst soaking in the wonderful views over the surrounding countryside; or snuggle up in front of a roaring log fire in the sitting room after supper.

Sitting at the northern end of the beautiful valley of Dentdale, Sedbergh has immense historic charm with its cobbled alleyways and tiny little streets which are home to a good selection of traditional shops and pubs. Mentioned in the Domesday Book, the town has a long history and lays claim to being England's very own Book Town, adding to its nostalgic charm. It is home to Castlehaw, a small Motte and Bailey Castle sitting high above the town, and has a weekly Wednesday market, and monthly farmers market (last Wednesday of the month), as well as a number of festivals throughout the year.

Much loved by Wainwright, who described the Howgills as looking like 'a herd of sleeping elephants', the area offers some of the finest walking you will find anywhere in the country (the cottage is on The Dales Way long distance path), and England's highest waterfall (Cautley Spout - well worth the walk!). There are also good opportunities for those who enjoy a game of golf, cycling and pony trekking, as well as caving at nearby Ingleton and water sports at Killington Lake.

Other popular attractions include the nearby pretty cobbled village of Dent (with the highest mainline station in the country which is a stopping point for the famous Settle to Carlisle Railway), and Fairfield Mill Arts and Heritage Centre.

With a hot tub and large garden for relaxing, wonderful walks all around, incredible scenery and so many places to visit throughout both the Yorkshire Dales and Lake District National Parks, Weathercock Cottage is perfect for a lazy or energetic holiday at any time of the year.
