About the Owner

My Name is Matthew Clayton and I live in Dentdale with my partner Ella and my 3 boys who all go to the local school. We enjoy walking, travelling and family time together, we always book cottages for our holidays, it's a great way to spend quality time together. I have worked the length & breath of the UK for the last 25 years and Dentdale is a very special place, tucked away on the far West of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and just inside the Cumbrian border, Dentdale is a great place to start your adventure & holiday.

I felt compelled to write a review after our stay at Bridge cottage and the subsequent help that the owners gave me.

Our group consisted of 4 adults and 3 young boys and we were staying during half-term.

The cottage itself is well-presented with all modern equipment and facilities (TV, wifi, modern kitchen) but retaining a cosy charm (tastefully furnished, comfy beds, with a log burner). There were toys/books for the boys as well.

The cottage is situated in a small hamlet up a hill with a stream running alongside the cottage. Dent is about a mile away and Sedbergh is the nearest town. Gawthrop is a good spot for day trips. We went to Settle (via rail from Dent), White scar caves, Ingleton and Bowness.

Lovely cottage, in a good location and a very pleasant stay was had. I have no problem recommending this to anyone who looking for a comfortable base in the South Lakes.

To top it all, after we had left, the owner found and forwarded a mobile phone that I had left.

From the Owner

Bridge cottage & Hazel cottage was a tea shop & B&B back in the 60's, 70's & 80's a place to stop and have lunch whilst doing the Dales way, or cycling past. The properties are over 200 years old and we have totally renovated them both in 2010 with great love & care, our focus of attention was to restore the character of the buildings with the finest of materials & achitectual design. Hazel cottage is a cute bolt hole for 2, whilst Bridge cottage is a spacious open plan design which sleeps up to 6. Both properties are next to each other and can be rented for a party of 8.

From the Owner

Just relax and take in the views, sit and have lunch by the stream. The viewing deck balcony at Bridge cottage offers endless sitting and enjoyment by the stream, the well constructed bridge over Oliver's Gyhl was built by Oliver Cronwell. Use the private garden whilst staying at Hazel, it's a great place for a picnic or to paddle your feet in the stream. Dentdale is only 10 miles from the M6 turn off to Kendal (Lake District) and on the door step to the Yorkshire Dales, including Hawes, Ingleton and the cosmopolitan town of Kirkby Lonsdale. Once you have been to Dentdale you will always want to come back.
