Oakdene is the perfect holiday property for large groups wanting to explore the Yorkshire Dales or Lake District National Parks. The property is located just outside Sedbergh, on the western side of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Oakdene also offers easy access to the Lake District which is just 15 miles away.
There is an excellent network of footpaths to explore, which lead right from the door step offering differing walks and cycle rides to suit every visitor, whether you are looking for an quiet afternoon stroll or a more energetic and invigorating fell walk or ride.
Farfield Mill built in 1837, is just a few hundred yards away. The Mill now houses an Arts and Heritage Centre with craft studios, tearoom and shop, exhibitions and demonstrations of cloth weaving.
Sedbergh, England’s book town, is less than a mile away. The stone-built, historic market town has a twelfth century Norman church to explore, as well as Castlehaw, the site of an ancient motte and bailey castle which overlooks the town.
Just 5 miles away is the beautiful cobbled village of Dent, where you will find an art gallery, blacksmith’s shop and memorial fountain to it’s famous son, geologist Adam Sedgwick.
The whole of the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District are within easy drving distance with an abundance of interests and attractions on offer, from exploring pretty lakeside villages, to spotting red squirrels in Snaizeholme or for the more adventurous canoeing the local rivers.
Very comfortable accommodation and everything we needed was there. Lovely surroundings and lots of interesting places to visit.
