Coronavirus news - 4th June 2020

Although government regulations limiting the spread of Coronavirus now allow recreational travel they do not yet allow overnight accommodation.

The information on our accommodation pages is for the benefit of those contemplating a visit after regulations become relaxed to allow overnight stays.

If you are planning a trip to the Sedbergh area please read this advice to help keep yourself and our community free from Coronavirus.

  • If you think you may be ill, please stay at home.
  • Only day trips are currently allowed. Please do not stay overnight in your caravan, campervan, tent or second home.
  • Toilets and most shops in Sedbergh remain closed, as do pubs and cafés.
  • We have an ageing and at-risk community. Please help us by respecting social distancing rules both in the town and on footpaths in the countryside.
  • Many of our footpaths pass through farmyards and the ageing farming community are particularly vulnerable.
  • We are blessed with lots of empty space so please plan your route to avoid other people as far as possible.
  • Mountain rescue teams may not be available as they rely on volunteers, many of whom work in the NHS and other frontline professions.
  • Motorcyclists – the roads may be emptier than usual but please ride safely and responsibly.

Further details and information about the risks and problems facing rural areas such as ours can be found on the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Lake District websites.


Sleeps up to 4

Handpicked pieces of furniture, some restored to create a mix of old and modern, result in a most charming cottage. The oak staircase is hand-made by a local craftsman and the cottage is fitted with iron work made by Steve and designed especially for the cottage. On the spacious landing there are two comfortable chairs providing a view over the garden with its bird and squirrel feeders.

The cottage is located in a rural location at the foot of Harter Fell, near the unspoiled village of Ravenstonedale. Just a short walk from the cottage is the limestone pavement of Fell End Clouds and the ancient Murthwaite woods, where you may see red squirrels, deer or buzzards overhead. The fells surrounding Sandbed Cottage are grazed by Swaledale sheep (with Rough Fell sheep on the Howgills) and wild fell ponies with open access across the fells for walkers.

There is an orchard garden with a BBQ, bench and a stunning view of the fells. Outside the French doors we have bird feeders which attract a large variety of birds, and if you are lucky you may even see red squirrels feeding only metres away from the door.
