Sedbergh cottages

Sedbergh is an attractive old market town in Dentdale, a hidden gem on the very fringes of Cumbria. Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, the town sits just within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Sedbergh lies at the foot of the Howgill Fells at the northern end of Dentdale which stretches southwards to the moors below Whernside, the highest fell in the Yorkshire Dales. The town, with its narrow cobbled streets, has an olde worlde atmosphere. Sedbergh is England’s book town. There are just three official Booktowns in Britain, Hay-on-Wye in Wales and Wigtown in South West Scotland being the others. The Sedbergh Booktown project was started after the 2001 Foot and Mouth Disease outbreak to encourage visitors to the town. Sedbergh already had a core of book-related businesses but since then more bookshops have opened and, in 2006, the town was officially recognised as England’s Booktown. Sedbergh is also famous for its public school, set in magnificent parkland on the edge of the town.
