Sedbergh - pronounced Sed-Ber – is an ancient market town situated in northern Dentdale within the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The town itself boasts narrow streets, little shops, traditional pubs and a famous school, dating back to 1536. There is also an atmospheric 12th Century church. Dentdale is located amongst rolling hills and stretches 14 miles from the windswept moors below Whernside to the rivers Dee and Rawthey. At the heart of the dale is the town of Dent, which has existed since Norman times and is a labyrinth of winding cobbled streets. There are three golf courses in the vicinity as well as tennis, horse riding and fishing. With such incredible scenery and so many fascinating trails, the area is a great place for walkers and cyclists. This, together with the surrounding valleys and two National Parks, makes Sedburgh a fantastic spot for a holiday outdoors.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

The Barn is a wonderful property which was well furnished and very peaceful. It was really enjoyed by all the family.
Mr Todd

Lovely barn conversion, keeping the old outside with a modern feel. Brilliant views and just an all round good place to stay to have a relaxing break.

We liked the setting amid the Howgills velvety-green hills; the ever-changing lights, peace and near absence of other people on the hills. Also, the sheer quality and ingeniousness of the barn conversion. The owners were friendly and their farm is nearby, but they don't intrude.

The Barn was much larger than we expected, a real gem! We booked it for a surprise 60th for my husband so all the family gathered. There was loads of space all round, it was exceptionally well laid out throughout, and was very warm comfortable. There were lots of lovely walks despite the rain! Would recommend this lovely quiet place to anyone!

This holiday home is to the highest standard - excellent. Both the Lakes and Dales are magnificent and this house is ideally placed for both.

The house was presented to a very high standard, could not have been better.

Lots of space in the accommodation, very comfortable, fabulous location. The folder was excellent for information for usage of all electrical equipment, however we would have liked local information contained within the folder such as local doctors dentist etc and recycling information and possibly local restaurants. There was a wealth of information for visitor attractions in the wider area. We would definitely recommend this property to friends and family. The photos on the website do not do the property justice.

The Barn was delightful. Beautiful scenery, very quiet and lots of walks for all standards of walkers. The Barn was very spacious and there was lots of room for 7 people. It was very easy to find just off the M6.

The property was fantastic, there were 8 people and there was plenty of room for all. It was fully equipped, could not ask for a better place, would recommend everyone to go. The owners were so friendly and helpful.

A brilliant house for our Christmas family get together. The house was exceptionally clean and was great for our needs. The large kitchen was brilliant, as was the large lounge and the ample seating. All the bedrooms were equally as good and there were no fights over the best ones!

Would not change a thing, it was a lovely property, a little out of the way, but well worth it when you get there. Cannot praise the property enough. Lots of space for 8 people. Very nice and helpful owner.

Great place for large groups, very modern but cosy, maintained to a high standard. Views are amazing, great place to rest and relax but close to Sedbergh and Kendal if you wanted to look around and shop. Beds are super comfy.
November 2016
Just returned from a lovely weekend break at Riddings Barn. Excellent retreat. Superb location. Quality property.
June 2013
7 June 2013. Spent a wonderful week at Riddings in accommodation which could not be bettered. We have stayed at many self catering establishments in our time, but Riddings is clearly the best for quality of conversion; the furniture and all fittings, kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, are all top of the range. The owners provided many, many extras in sundries which you would expect to supply yourself. The location is perfect for peace, views and as much walking as one could ask for -right from the front door, without the need to drive! A hidden gem which we thoroughly recommend.

Excellent place to stay. All rooms to a very high standard and has everything you could possibly need. Very warm and cosy despite the awful weather and close enough to town for the essentials
