Parker’s Cottage sleeps five guests in three bedrooms and is a nicely presented, Grade II listed property. This lovely detached cottage affords wonderful views across Dentdale and beyond to Whernside, the highest of the Three Peaks. Located just a mile and a half from Dentdale’s cobbled village (with a choice of three pubs), the cottage is within easy reach of amenities.
Dent is a pretty village with cobbled streets and authentic northern charm. It has long been the main village of an active farming community, and you can find out more about the people who shaped the village at the Dent Heritage Centre. Dent train station, four miles from the village, is the highest train station in England, at 1,100 feet above sea level. It is part of the famous Carlisle to Settle Railway line which crosses the Ribblehead Viaduct and is one of the most scenic routes in Britain.
As well as being home to part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Dent is only 15 miles from the Lake District National Park, and there are miles of footpaths and bridleways to explore. The Pennine Cycleway (Sustrans route 68) passes through Dent on its 350-mile route between Derby and Berwick-upon-Tweed, and there are also some excellent local loops that explore the countryside around the village. The beautiful River Dee is nearby with lovely riverside walks and fishing on offer. Beach 25 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 2 miles.
Parkers Cottage can be booked together with Willans Farm House (ref UK12661, ½ mile away) to accommodate up to 12 guests.
