Sedbergh is a pretty market town in the county of Cumbria. Located 10 miles east of Kendal, it lies at the foot of the Howgill Fells, within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Thanks to its position at the confluence of four rivers, Sedbergh grew as an important trading point, and has held a market since the 13th century. Sedbergh holiday cottages are popular among visitors who want to hike in the spectacular surrounding countryside, while experiencing life in an authentic Cumbrian community. Arriving by road, the view of the hills rising sharply around the town are unforgettable. Sedbergh is easily explored by foot, with a maze of narrow, cobbled streets and lanes, lined with historic homes and family-run businesses. There are several book shops, and an artisan market is held monthly at Joss Lane Car Park.

Self-catering holidays in Sedbergh would be incomplete without visiting some of the town’s historic landmarks, including the beautiful Norman church of St Andrew’s. Nearby, on a hillside overlooking the town, Castlehaw is an ancient motte and bailey castle which was built to defend the town from the Scots. On the outskirts of Sedbergh, the former Victorian woollen mill of Farfield has been restored by local people and is now a base for 16 artists and craftspeople.
