About Belinda Strachan

We live in Yorkshire but my husband and I have frequently visited Sedbergh over the last 15 years where we particularly enjoy walking in the Howgills and Yorkshire Dales.

We can drive to Sedbergh in under two hours and until we bought the cottage this was near enough to spend the day in the area. Now we have the cottage we can spend longer periods and really enjoy all the area has to offer.

Belinda Strachan purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Belinda Strachan chose Kendal & South Lakes

Sedbergh is a walkers paradise, with lovely walks on the doorstep. From the cottage, there is a footpath that takes you to the top of Winder and beyond. You have a view of Winder from the bedroom and kitchen windows. There are also many riverside paths along the banks of the Rawthey and the Dee. The countryside is easily accessible but feels remote and on the fells you may have the place to yourselves.

Sedbergh town is 5 to 10 minutes walk from the cottage and has a wide variety of shops.It specialises in book shops. Its narrow streets, 12C church and famous school dating back to 1525 provide a charming olde worlde atmosphere.

There's lots to do apart from walking, making this location a perfect holiday destination.

What makes this cottage unique

This modern mid-terrace cottage is cosy, warm, well equipped and furnished and decorated to a high standard.

There is an enclosed rear garden with garden furniture and barbeque to relax in after an energetic day.

Welcome tea tray on arrival. Complimentary toiletteries

The cottage is 5–10 minutes easy walk to the charming market town of Sedbergh which has a variety of independent shops.

Sedbergh is in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and there are plenty of lovely walks straight from the cottage. It is also a fantastic base for visiting the Dales and the Lake District and numerous places of interest nearby.

Lovely cottage in Sedbergh

  • 5 of 5

Cozy cottage in quiet and beautiful part of Sedbergh. The enclosed garden is great for dogs and my terrier was happily stretched out in it after some fell walking! Will visit again, Spar is just around the corner handy if you run low on anything. Cafes and shops in the town 5 min walk away. Very good value for money too, if you dont mind being away from central lakes this is ideal.

Perfect Peace

A very enjoyable stay at Bramble Cottage. Great location for dales and lakes and so peaceful, most noise we heard was from the birds-delightful! Very well equipped and very comfortable, wished we could have stayed longer.

Everything you need

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is close to the Spar in Sedbergh, within walking distance of the town centre and has a lovely view of the fells from upstairs. It's not enormous but more than adequate for 2 people. Comfy beds, good quality towels and sheets, everything you need such as hairdryer, iron etc. Has its own parking space on a quiet cul de sac. Lovely walking literally yards away from the cottage. Takeaways, pubs, coffee shops, bookshops and other quirky shops in Sedbergh. Would happily stay again

Beautiful tiny cottage in a lovely village near Lake District!

  • 4 of 5

Hello,

My stay at the Bramble cottage was exceptionally good. From the interpersonal conversations with the host, and helping out while we got to the cottage, along with assistance to get the keys, was all very smooth and easy. When we got to the cottage, there was abundant information on what to do in the area, places to see and restaurants/pubs to visit.

The cottage is in Sedbergh, which is a beautiful,friendly and homely village (country side), about 25 minutes drive away from Windemere. For those who wish to stay close to the tourist spots, but not directly at them, this is the best recommended stay in the area.

The 2 bed accommodation was very well looked after and there were enough facilities within the house which helped when we wanted to make some breakfast at home before we set off to the Lake District. I would definitely recommend going to the Bramble cottage and will definitely go back again if I went to the Lake District.
