Welcome to The Penthouse, a stylish bolthole for 2/4 people in the beautifully situated town of Sedbergh. Woven into the Victorian fabric of The Yorkshire Dales while being a thoroughly modern and stylish apartment, it makes a gorgeous lofty vantage point to take in the views. The owners have taken great care in renovating the space to make it comfortable by enhancing the period features such as exposed beams and window seats with high-spec fittings and a keen eye for modern decor. It makes the perfect place for a couple but the wonderfully quirky mezzanine does have sofa beds to accommodate two further guests (please call the office on booking to arrange this).

Sedbergh dates from as early as Saxon times however it's now known chiefly as England's book town and has a charming bustling feel about it. Surrounded on all sides by the mighty Howgills and rolling green countryside, it retains much of its old-world charm and is perfect for exploring on foot. There are gentle riverside ambles and challenging fell walks available right from the door. You could get well kitted out and head to Cautley Spout, arguably England's highest waterfall, a few miles out of town. Set in a restored Victorian Woollen Mill just outside town, Farfield Mill has been developed to showcase textile arts and give a window into the history of the industry. Gorgeous crafts are available to buy there and the cafe makes a great place to stop for a treat.

The town boasts several good pubs and cafes within a short potter and countless places to peruse books for the bibliophiles among you.  Sedbergh's privileged situation on the western side of the Yorkshire Dales and within easy reach of the Eastern Lake District makes it a fantastic spring board for exploration. You could take a ride on the Settle to Carlisle railway from Garsdale, visit stunning caves at Ingleborough or explore the world of Beatrix Potter in the southern Lake District all within an easy drive of this special little town.
