Cottage was warm and in a lovely area with wonderful views and very peaceful plenty of parking

Reviewed by Katherine, 11th August 2018

The cottage was quaint and in a good location for where we wanted to be - which was near to Sedbergh where our son was on a residential course. It proved to be a comfortable location to hide from the truly atrocious and torrential rain and gales that week.

Fantastic week in beautiful Dentdale. Helmknott is large and comfortable with all mod cons. Location is great.

Reviewed by Alison, 22nd October 2017

Cosy, comfortable and quirky. Lovely quiet spot in a beautiful position. Ideally placed for the Howgills, Yorkshire Dales or the Lake District. Well equipped, warm and a great place to come back to at the end of the day. The boys loved sleeping amongst the beams and playing in the garden.
