Welcome to The Howgills

Welcome to Sedbergh, in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

Superbly located beneath the picturesque Howgill Fells, or 'Sleeping Elephants', the small thirteenth century town of Sedbergh provides a convenient base for exploring the local dales, including Dentdale, Garsdale, Lunesdale, Swaledale and Wensleydale. Sedbergh also provides an ideal base for exploring the Eden Valley, the Three Peaks, and the nearby Lake District, all of which are within easy striking distance.

The River Clough

This is where the Yorkshire Dales geologically meets the Lake District, creating a picturesque landscape comprising of magnificent fells and attractive dales. The contrasting uplands and lowlands combine with the woodlands and trout streams to create an area of outstanding natural beauty just waiting to be explored.

Pretty villages are dotted amongst this unique backdrop and the area is home to a wide and varied wildlife population including Red Squirrels, Badgers, Ravens, Buzzards and Peregrines

Located at the North-western tip of the Yorkshire Dales, Sedbergh lies within easy reach of the Lake District, thereby making it an ideal base for anybody wishing to explore two of the most popular National Parks in England.

People visiting The Howgills for the first time are often amazed how the area has managed to avoid the busy hustle bustle of the Lake District's more popular venues, despite Sedbergh being located just 5 miles from the M6 motorway (J37).
