It was a very nice stay at Blake Rigg. The house is beautiful with well decorated rooms,, clean and very causy The views from the house are outstanding. The only remark we had were the four gates we had to open and close when we left the property.

charming cottage in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Blake Rigg is in an incredible location far away from civilisation and a wonderful place to detox from everyday life. The cottage is very comfortable inside and the garden is idyllic. There is so much to see in the Dales that you could easily fill a week in the area (Bolton Castle, Aysgarth Falls, Jervaulx Abbey, Hawes for the Wensleydale Creamery etc etc). And if you're a walker you're in heaven. Just keep your fingers crossed for good weather as there is a reason everything is so green! We had 2 stunning days and 2 wet ones, although even in bad weather the landscape is breathtaking.

lovely secluded home.

  • 5 of 5

The views are lovely and the position is very remote (only downside was the very narrow winding track to the property). Feels like you're stepping back in time but with the advantage of electricity and heating! Loved using the aga for stew and dumplings ready and waiting after a cold, wet walk. Lots of walks straight from the door and very scenic. Water is supplied from a stream but drinking water was provided in bottles. Might be worth taking a few extra bottles if you prefer to use bottled rather than boiled water as shops are a bit of a drive. The rooms are full of character with the beams, wood burner and stone staircase and the bedrooms, especially, are very pretty. Best thing for us was seeing the sheep walk past the windows and occasionally peep in! A beautiful, cosy escape from it all (no mobile reception at all in the area but the wifi connection was very good and there's a landline so you're not completely isolated). Very well maintained and spotlessly clean with a very thoughtful welcome tray to greet us. Really enjoyed our stay.

There are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy in the area which is a haven for walkers where stunning countryside and wildlife abound. A vast array of footpaths criss cross the landscape allowing you to explore the area including the Heritage Trail and intriguing Flintergill. Alternatively, take a more sedate stroll alongside the River Dee. Cycling is another popular pursuit with pretty country lanes for a leisurely ride and off-road tracks providing an excellent way of experiencing the beauty of the Yorkshire Dales and also the Pennine Cycleways which call be accessed directly via Dentdale village.

The Settle-Carlisle Railway passes through Dentdale (stopping at its station which is the highest in England!) and is one of the most spectacular railway journeys in the world. You can take a train to Carlisle or Leeds for a great day out and sit back and enjoy the stunning views of the Yorkshire Dales and Pennines on your way.

Dent Village has a Heritage Centre which reveals the working lives of the Dale's people since the 16th Century and the Meditation Centre which is an ideal place for quiet contemplation. The village also has three pubs and two cafes offering the opportunity to enjoy a meal out or pint of local ale at the end of a long walk!

With wonderful walking, spectacular scenery and so many places within easy reach both within the Yorkshire Dales and Cumbria, you are sure to want to return time and time again to this peaceful paradise.
