Description

Sedbergh is set to the west of the Yorkshire Dales National Park but is also close to the eastern fells of the Lake District, only 30 minutes drive from Windermere and is therefore ideal for exploring both areas of unspoilt and protected countryside. Sedbergh has a variety of narrow lanes and small clusters of old buildings including a 12th Century Norman church (restored in 1886) and, overlooking the town, is the site of Castlehaw, an ancient motte and bailey castle. However Sedbergh has a new status, ’Book Town for England’, and as such has a growing number of book  shops, both new and second hand and is set to evolve over the coming months and years into a  literary paradise.
Ingmire Hall is a superb example of 15th Century architecture, on the fringes of the main town and is reached down a tree lined driveway opening out onto a glorious courtyard in front of this impressive ancient building, complete with water feature, lawned terraces and other fascinating features. The Hall has been sympathetically divided to create some very appealing properties, The Dovery being to the rear of the main building and having a delightful small terrace accessed from one of the bedrooms as well as a paved terrace to the ground floor. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable and ideal for the larger party, the combination of 21st Century facilities blending effortlessly with 15th Century history.

About the local area

Kirkby Lonsdale is in Cumbria's south east in between the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales; an historic market town in an area of great natural beauty with riverside and country walks.

There are many riverside and country walks in the area, and historic buildings to see in the town itself, including the 11th century Norman parish church. While some market towns have become spoilt over the years, Kirkby Lonsdale and its surrounding area of outstanding landscape still retain the same beauty appreciated by Constable, Turner, and Ruskin.

Further north lays Kirkby Stephen at the head of the Eden Valley, a popular centre for walkers and situated on the Cumbria Cycle Way - a great route for all keen cyclists.

Half an hour's drive from Kirkby Stephen is the beautiful area of Silverdale - an Area of Outstanding Beauty, offering a truly inspiring escape from the pace and pressures of everyday life. Don't miss the headland of Jack Scout leading to Jenny Brown's Point. From here, look out across the bay to see Humphrey Head where, so legend has it, the last wolf in England was slain.
