About the property

This traditional, characterful cottage offers a cosy retreat with beamed ceilings and a Morso wood burning stove. The porch leads onto a comfortable lounge with a well equipped gallery kitchen, housing an induction hob, fan assisted oven and fridge. Upstairs there is a double bedroom and shower room with an original 18th century pine dividing wall – in places you can see the candle burns where somebody got a little too close! (You may need to watch your head in places and the stairs are quite steep.) Outside is a flower filled patio with a table and chairs for al fresco dining, and a very cute annex which houses the washing machine, a small freezer and room to store bicycles securely. Free wi-fi is available in the cottage.

Sedbergh is an ancient market town nestling in a verdant valley under the fells and as well as a variety of shops, pubs and cafes still has a Wednesday market. Perfectly situated in the Yorkshire Dales National Park but also in Cumbria, and only 5 miles off the M6, there is easy access to both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales National Parks from the cottage. The Howgill Fells offer superb walking straight from the doorstep, and there are many beautiful footpaths along the valley too. The area is also popular with cyclists, with winding country lanes offering wonderful views.

About Sue and Neil Kernahan

We bought Tardis Cottage almost 20 years ago as a weekend retreat and fell in love with Sedbergh and its' friendly people, so now we live here! Our home is four doors away across the cobbled courtyard.

Neil is a semi-retired craftsman upholsterer whose workshop, “Howgill Upholstery”, is in the barn near to the cottage. He can offer tuition if you would like to combine your holiday with a chance to learn something new or improve your skills. Perhaps you might like to make a Yorkshire Tweed footstool to take home with you?

Sue and Neil Kernahan purchased this cottage in 1997

Why Sue and Neil Kernahan chose Kendal & South Lakes

As soon as we walked into Tardis Cottage we knew that we had found our ideal place to get away from it all, it is perfect for a couple on holiday. Situated in the heart of Sedbergh you can easily spend a week here without using a car, there are a good variety of shops to cater for your needs and an assortment of places to eat out a stones throw away. There is plenty to do too, even if you don't want to drive into the Lakes or Dales.

What makes this cottage unique

In one of the oldest parts of Sedbergh, the cottage is around 200 years old and is so pretty, with its' beams, alcoves, muntin and plank wall, and vaulted bedroom ceiling.

If you are wondering about the name, the previous owner was a policeman - so his grandchildren decided the cottage was a "Police Box" and the most famous one of all is The Tardis! Sadly, as the walls are around a metre thick, it is not bigger on the inside though.

Wow what a lovely little cottage with loads of caricature

  • 5 of 5

Sue and Neil (owners) were very friendly and welcoming and willing to give advise on days out. The cottage is fantastic full of quaint rustic caricature and clean + tidy . Sofa is great to snuggle up on in front of the log burner after a cold day out .

Would recommend the Tardis cottage to everyone , we will definitely be going back for another stay

Very sweet and homely cottage, with such welcoming owners - would definitely stay again!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cottage for my first week starting a new job in Sedbergh. Completely new to the area we were warmly welcomed by Neil and Sue and the Tardis was a home from home and beautifully furbished, with everything we needed.

We really enjoyed the multi fuel stove which was such a treat, especially given it was -6degrees at one point, which we settled in front of over a cuppa and enjoyed our welcome biscuits! Thank you.

If we were not now living here we would stay again and we would definitely recommend and will be passing on the details to family and friends!

Beautiful, cosy, comfortable cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just spent four nights in Tardis Cottage and have had such a wonderful time!!!

Sue and Neil were absolutely fantastic! Both very friendly and very kind. They live in the village of Sedbergh so are there if you need anything at all...which you wouldn't because the cottage is one of the most well equipped self catering holidays we've ever had!!!

The cottage itself is very comfortable and very cosy in the colder months when you get the log burner going! I don't feel the pictures do it justice?! It is bigger than I thought it would be which was a concern as my husband is 6ft 5in and thought he'd bump his head on low beams, but it's bigger than it looks. Not massive but perfect for two :-)

You can just see the rolling hills of the dales from the bedroom window and the village of sedbergh itself is charming and delightful, people are very friendly! There's a butchers, green grocers and a beautiful bakery where you can get a fresh loaf every morning! There is also a lovely pub less than 1 minute walk from the cottage where we had a superb meal.

Can't praise it enough. We will definitely be returning, we've fallen in love with the north :-)

Thanks again Neil and Sue!!!

Small but perfectly packaged Tardis Cottage is full of charm and character; an ideal base for two.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Tardis Cottage, which provided the perfect base for us during our 4 night stay. It is full of charm and character, little quirks you would expect in a property of this age - you do need to mind your head in one or two places and the stairs are quite steep and narrow; however these were not an issue for us. Tardis Cottage is beautifully and lovingly presented for its guests right down to the welcoming tea, coffee and biscuits. It has all the amenities you need with the comforts of home, which we made full use of. Sue and Neil are excellent and friendly hosts who live just about next door and were available when needed; our thanks to you both for your welcome and knowledge of the area. We loved our stay at Tardis; it was perfect for us and Sedbergh is a lovely market town providing an excellent base for exploring the Lakes, Dales and the Howgills.
