An ancient Celtic Kingdom deservedly known as 'The jewel of the Dales' Dent is 16 miles East of Kendal in the South East corner of Cumbria, only 3 miles from Sedbergh and lies at the Western edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park and on the fringes of the Lake District National Park. An ideal base for visitors wishing to enjoy the nearby countryside, there is an outstanding variety of walks from the door, to the top of Helm Knott and Whernside, one of the famous Yorkshire Three Peaks, to a delightful stroll along the Dee, part of the Dales Way which passes through Dentdale. The craft centre at Helmside and just 100 yards from Helmswood Farmhouse, offers a collection of goods produced by local Dales folk, everything from watercolours and prints to walking sticks and pottery, ideal souveniers of your stay.
Helmswood Farmhouse dates back to the 17th Century and displays a wealth of original features to remind you of its ancient past by way of exposed beams, flagged floors and even the odd piece of farming ironmongery or two. The rooms are spacious and characterful and the Farmhouse has wonderful views from all rooms to the front and side of the house, even from the bath! Every possible facility has been provided, from broadband internet access and full sky package to the sumptuous beds and mattresses - carefully chosen to ensure a good night's rest.
The orchard garden shared with the two smaller cottages next door is fully enclosed, the trees providing plenty of shade in warmer weather and the grounds enable you to get even closer to the stunning views of the Dales that are literally on your doorstep, beckoning walkers of all abilities to get out and explore. This really is a super, quality property well suited to a special gathering of family or friends at any time of the year.

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.

The property is very well appointed and clean, and we feel benefits from being maintained by the owners, who we met on arrival and obviously cared that everything was OK. The property is in a beautiful location. It is certainly amongst the best, if not the best, we have stayed in.
The property exceeded our expectations and we were given full instructions from the owner on how to work everything. It was clean and tastefully furnished and helped us to have an excellent relaxing break.
