The Details...

The Penthouse has been woven into the very fabric of its surroundings in the Yorkshire Dales, but while traditional charm has been maintained it has also been given a modern twist. The stylish apartment has been lovingly renovated to a high spec but without ever forgetting its roots.

Sleeping up to six guests, the social hub of the property is the open plan living area. At one end of the room is the sleek and fully equipped kitchen, which flows into the dining space with a long table by the window with benches and chairs, ideal for sociable evenings in around the dinner table. The sitting area is at the other end, but those preparing a feast can still be socially involved with those relaxing on the leather sofa - which opens out to become a bed.

The king size, super-comfy bedroom is also on this level and is complete with a pretty window seat - one of original features along with the exposed beams. Also on this level is the stylish bathroom with shower cubicle. Meanwhile, a stair ladder from the living area heads up into the quirky mezzanine. This acts as both the second bedroom with a bed tucked away under the beams, but also as a quiet seating area for those who want to escape with a book or glass of wine.

The Penthouse sits in the heart of Sedbergh, which is affectionately known as England's book town. There are fantastic views across the rolling countryside and mighty Howgills that surrounds the Saxon settlement, as well as easy access to the bustling charm of Sedbergh and its array of pubs, cafes, and shops.

Guests can also embark on a number of walks for all abilities right on the doorstep. Set on the western side of the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District is also within reach for those prepared for a hike and Cautley Spout - which is among Britain's highest waterfalls - is just a few miles away. Alternatively, amble along the river to Farfield Mill just out of town and its showcase of textile arts. Or hop on the Settle to Carlisle railway and trundle through amazing surroundings, visiting the caves at Ingleborough or the World of Beatrix Potter.
