Welcome to Sandbed Cottage
Self catering accommodation in a region of outstanding natural beauty
Sandbed Cottage nestles at the foot of the slopes of Harter Fell, part of the spectacular Howgills, with stunning limestone pavements on the other side of the dale just a short way away. These little known hills and fells are a paradise for walkers, horse riders or mountain bikers, with easy access to open fell.
Sandbed Cottage is ideal for a good strenuous walk or ride up breathtaking Wild Boar Fell or a gentler meander along a valley bottom where your only companions are likely to be free roaming fell ponies, sheep and pheasant. Whichever you choose, the scenery is delightful with buzzards and the call of the curlew the only sounds to be heard. If you are lucky you may spot one of the area's wild deer or red squirrels.
Sandbed Cottage is situated in a perfect position for exploring both Lakes and Dales. It is only 7 miles from the book town of Sedbergh and 3 miles from Ravenstonedale, a lovely little village with a pub serving restaurant and bar meals. There is a playground in Ravenstonedale and some Gilbertine ruins in the grounds of St. Oswald's church, famous for it's triple decked pulpit and inward facing pews. The area also offers river fishing on the Eden, Belah and Lune. The Settle-Carlisle railway is nearby and vintage buses tour this spectacular area.
The area surrounding Sandbed Cottage is excellent for horse riding, both for experienced and novice riders. To support riders we offer 2 stables and a tack room for rent. This ensures that your horse or ponies are close at hand to enjoy the hills, fells and bridle ways of this quiet and peaceful part of the Eden Valley.
