Great house in a fantastic area
About the Owner
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.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Many thanks. We had a lovely week even managing one breakfast in the garden [March]. The cottage was very well presented and comfortable. We hope to come again.

Great house in a fantastic area
Very impressed with Bramble Cottage, small but perfectly formed and very well equiped. It was lovely and quiet and everything was just ass described. Handy that there is a Spar supermarket just 2 mnutes down the road but the town is only about 5 minutes away and there is just about everything you need there. Fantastic scenery and plenty of walks in the area. I will definately be recommending the cottage and would use it again if we returned to the area.
Beautiful tiny cottage in a lovely village near Lake District!
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.
Lovely little cottage and has everything that you need,it's in a very quiet little close! Village is small but has everything you could need, people that live there are so friendly.
Excellent, quiet, comfortable cottage in an area of outstanding scenery.
The cottage was perfect for two of us and wire fox terrier dog. The owner had thought of everything we would need for our stay. There was a modern smart TV and a cupboard with games and DVDs. Also a well stocked book shelf. The property had an enclosed secure back garden which meant I didn't have to worry about letting the dog out. This had a table and chairs and a BBQ. The cottage was clean, tidy and modern in a very quiet area with excellent walks from the front door. The bed was so comfortable. Sedgbergh town was in walking distance with nice shops and eating places. There is a small supermarket at the end of the road.
All contact with the owner was dealt with promptly and professionally.
I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending to anyone.
Perfect Cottage for fell walking in Lakes and Dales
We had a 3 night stay over the Bank Holiday weekend and Bramble cottage gave us the perfect base. The cottage has everything that you need, Spar is around the corner for supplies and the pubs in the village are a short walk. Although I would say the Dalesman is very expensive for food (and I live in London!) Windermere is only 30 mins drive so worked out as exactly what we wanted.
Good location. Small but comfortable house with everything we needed for a short stay.
Nice walks by the river and on the Dales Way. We were able to leave the car and walk from the house.
The town seemed a little run down but the people were friendly and welcoming.
From the Owner
“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.”
