Comments by walkers who stayed at Wheelwright Cottage in Sedbergh on The Dales Way
Wonderful Yorkshire welcome to a cottage that has retained all it's old world charm. The lovely lady who owns the B&B even sorted my boots as I slept. The breakfast was excellent

This stay was after our short days walking so we arrived a little early, no problem we were made very welcome by Suzy and shown to a very clean comfortable room close to an pleasant adjoining bathroom.
We were given a key to come & go as we pleased and had the use of a lounge with TV etc.
Suzy gave us good advice for the best place for evening meals after which we had a very comfortable night.
Breakfast was a delight and set us up for the next days walking. Recommended stop in Sedbergh.

I agree with the other comments, the best thing about Wheelright Cottage is the host Suzi. The bedroom provided a lovely stay but the morning conversation and information was a joy. One of the best breakfasts all week, we could have stayed and chatted but had to get on with the walk!
Col and Maggie Havercroft, left on 31 August 2010
As previously mentioned, this B&B is run by a lovely lady, Suzi and her three dogs. We were given a warm welcome, and yes, it did smell a bit doggy. The rooms are clean,and furnished with items collected by Suzi over her years in the antiques trade.
Breakfast is served in the little front room, which also is filled with emphemera and Suzi is a attentive host and always ready to chat about her life.
A lovely, quirky place to stay.

Wheelwright Cottage is run by a delightful lady who, after 54 years in Sedbergh (pronounced Serber, she reliably informed us) hasn't lost her Australian accent. Don't be put off by the somewhat doggy smell of the reception area (the owner has 3 of her own long-haired daschunds which are kept away from guests and communal areas) - the bedrooms smell clean and are bright and spacious and although not en-suite, the bathroom was only a couple of steps away. The owner gave us advice as to the best pub in the area (The Dalesman) and we too heartily recommend it for your evening meal.
Debby Cassapi, left on 27 July 2008
Very pleasant nights stay - warm, comfortable and clean. Great breakfast.
Did notice the doggy smell in the living room mentioned by others, but not a problem. Can recommend the Dalesman for a meal - a bit pricey but top quality.
Steve - Scunthorpe, left on 01 November 2007
Clean and comfortable room. We had a great evening meal at the Dalesman pub as recommended by Susie.
Katherine, left on 03 October 2007
Had the double room at the front. A small B&B with character opposite the rugby fields. Our host was friendly and welcoming. Room cosy.
Pam Sharp, left on 23 September 2007
When we arrived Susie was already prepared for us with a handful of newspaper for our boots and there was plenty of hot water! The cottage was lovely and there were fantastic views from our room. The breakfast was ample and kept us going to Burneside. Susie was very knowledgeable about the walk and about places to eat in Sedbergh. However, the smell of the dogs was a little off putting at times.
Charlotte, left on 01 August 2007
Had a great time here in this very quirky house full of some lovely antiques and books. The rooms were nice and the breakfast was great.Must say i didn`t notice any dog smells.Had a fantastic meal in The Dalesman pub, highly recommended for food.

Suzy is a wonderful person.... Rooms and baths upstairs were clean. Main floor smelled too doggy, however, for us to imagine eating breakfast there...and we left to find a bakery and coffee in town.
A shame...but I can't recommend it at this time.
Sisters - Peg and Marilyn, left on 03 June 2007
Suzie is a friendly and accomodating hostess. The breakfast was also good. The house does smell very doggy though.
Shaun, left on 29 May 2007
We stayed with Suzy in June 2006. She was an excellent hostess and seemed very interested in making us comfortable. The room was light and airy and very comfortable. The shower was one of the best we experienced on our trip. The location of the B & B was very convenient to the rest of Sedbergh. We also enjoyed meeting Suzy's little dogs.
Peter and Alixandra Brevig, left on 24 August 2006
Suzy is a lovely hostess. We were made to feel very welcome in her home which is full of interesting items. Although the facilities were shared there was plenty of hot water and the rooms were warm and comfortable. I had one of the best nights sleep of the week, along the Dales Way and the breakfast was more than adequate to send us on our 16 mile walk to Burneside.
Jeanette & Mike Owen, left on 05 June 2006
Our stay here was most comfortable. Susie Thurlby was an excellent host. The house was basic & very quirky, and we were as warm as toast after a really hot bath. She served up a very substantial breakfast. Nothing was too much trouble. Incredibly good value for money! We ate in the cafe/chip shop (closed at 7.30pm) Very good reasonable food.
Alan & Hild@ Heaton, left on 23 May 2005
Quirky house and great hostess. The room was light, clean and comfortable and everything was done beautifully. My favourite of the five places we stayed. Would definitely go back.
Libby Strutt, left on 19 May 2004
Miss Thurlby was anexcellent host. The rooms were clean and tidy and nothing was too much trouble. An excellent breakfast. Good luck to Miss Thurlby.
Chris Burley, left on 19 September 2002
My sister in law and I sayed here when walking the Dales Way several years ago. Suzy Thurbly was a wonderful host and the accommodations whilst plain were clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were huge and loaded with everything you could possible want and Suzy`s little dogs were a treat. I would must certainly stay at the Stable Antiques again. A most warm welcome.
