Located in the Dentdale Valley, the village of Dent is a delightfully tranquil place to visit and is surrounded by some truly magnificent countryside.
Paved with cobbled streets that narrowly wind their way through rows of historic stone houses, Dent has an ambience all of its own. In the centre of the village, you will find a unique fountain constructed of pink granite, a focal point for tourists and residents alike.
The nearby village of Sedbergh is home to the Dent Heritage Centre which tells the tale of Dent’s history, the area and its people. Another place of note near Dent is Dent Railway Station, which happens to be highest main line station in England. At a height of over 1100 feet above sea level, it is hardly surprising that the views from here are pretty spectacular.
Back in the village of Dent itself, the pub sells a range of beers from the local Dent Brewery. Actually located in nearby Cowgill, Dent Brewery is one of the remotest breweries in the country. In addition to producing award-winning ales that can be sampled at many of the local pubs, the brewery also offers visitors a chance to tour their premises.
With easy access to both the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, Dent is an ideal place to stay for a peaceful and scenic break. Search for cottages in Dent now for more information.
