The Old Dam is an attractive detached self-catering cottage nestling in a peaceful spot in the village of Cowgill and less than five miles from Dent's quaint cobbled village within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Accommodating six guests the cottage has three bedrooms and affords incredible far reaching views up to Arten Gill viaduct in the distance where the Settle to Carlisle railway passes (an impressive sight!). Providing an 'away from it all' retreat, yet within walking distance of a pub, The Old Dam offers all the comforts of home and is perfect for a break or longer holiday whatever the season.

Sitting room with multi-fuel burning stove set in a stoone fireplace, comfortable seating, TV, DVD player, wooden beams and delightful views over the garden and rolling countryside beyond.
