Quaint Stone Cottage in Heart of the Howgills, Sleeps 4

Pippin Cottage is a quaint stone and slate built holiday retreat, or romantic hideaway, situated just off the main street of the village, walking distance to all that this pretty town has to offer.

This characterful barn converted cottage is the perfect base for the many stunning walks, cycle routes, bookshops and atmospheric cafe’s and restaurants.  Pippin sleeps up to four people in its two bedrooms, but is perfectly suited to two friends or a couple.

Sedbergh is a small stone built town nestling in the Howgills on the border of the Yorkshire Dales and the Cumbrian Lake District, approximately seven miles from Kendal.

The area is fantastic for walkers, mountain bikers or even just to relax and admire the breathtaking countryside.  It is known as England’s Booktown in the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is mentioned in the Domesday book. As well as the bookshops there are several excellent pubs, cafe’s serving cream teas and sweet shops, so you won't be short of a well-earned rest after your day's activities.

We're dog friendly. There are so many wonderful walks in and around Sedbergh, it would be a shame not to be able to experience them with your four-legged friend. There are also several cafes, pubs & bistros that allow dogs to sit with you. We kindly ask that dogs are not allowed on the furniture or beds.

We are delighted to have achieved a Three Star Self Catering rating from Visit Britain, sitting at the upper end of the band. Had the cottage been a little larger for a bath, washing machine & dishwasher we would achieve a further star. Quality Cumbria grades us as Four Stars.

Get in touch if you have any questions or to enquire about your preferred dates.
