A characterful converted Victorian school in Upper Dentdale in the western corner of the Yorkshire Dales National Park this is a wonderful base for walking holidays: the Dales Way follows the River Dee just opposite Kirkthwaite Cottage.
Artists and writers will find tranquil beauty here and enjoy refreshing contact with nature. Equally ideal for those looking for a quiet break away from it all.
Cowgill is in a remote, tranquil spot yet is only 20 minutes' walk from Dent Station on the scenic Settle-Carlisle railway.
The limestone dale is rich with flower meadows in late spring and supports a rich diversity of wildlife – from rare orchids to red squirrels!
