Comments by walkers who stayed at Yew Tree Cottage in Sedbergh on The Dales Way
This was such a lovely place to stay, Anne made us so welcome, and the house is pretty and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, and Anne was so friendly. We really enjoyed our stay.

A great place to stay in a convenient location not far from the route and close to the main part of Sedbergh. Anne is a gracious and welcoming host and the house is filled with interesting treasures.

After a long, long day we arrived in Sedburgh to be greeted at this delightful cottage by our wonderful hostess Anne. To say she is a character is an understatement. She was fun, entertaining and very informative and helpful. Our rooms were bright, roomy and very comfortable despite being dated. We even had use of a very comfortable lounge to ourselves. Breakfast was sumptuous , probably the best on the whole trip. We will definitely return!!

Anne was a very welcoming hostess and an interesting lady to talk to. She gave us a very good recommendation for an evening meal, the Red Lion, not far up the road and not only Jennings beer (amongst others) but a very good lamb shoulder and friendly staff.
Anne doesn't provide packed lunches because the B&B is in town so after an excellent breakfast we resumed our trek via "On a Roll" on Main St, where we purchased filled bagettes for lunch - another spot-on recommendation from Anne.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Anne! She was warm, laid back and had a good sense of humour. It's a traditional B and B, with old fashioned comfort. Our breakfast was delicious-the best scrambled eggs I've had in a long time! Anne was helpful arranging accommodation for two in our group of four, since there the Yew Tree was full. In a good location in town, with everything close by.
Thanks for your wonderful hospitality Anne!

A lovely place to stop at whilst on the Dales Way. We were very pleased with the welcome we received (the toasted teacakes were really nice). The accommodation was really first class and comfortable, the breakfast was really great just was was need to set us up for the next stage of the walk. We would certainly stay here again and would have no problems in recommending Yew Tree to friends and relatives.

Bramaskew is a beautifully located working farm directly on one of the finest sections of the Dales Way and enjoying terrific views of the Lune valley and the Howgills. The welcome was warm; the en-suite rooms were large, clean, well-appointed and comfortable. The evening meal and breakfast were both excellent. A stay at Bramaskew is well worth the additional miles walking from Sedbergh (or a taxi for the desperate), particularly for those spending the previous night in Cowgill or Dent. I would recommend Bramaskew without hesitation and hope to visit again.

Very friendly hostess Anne, we enjoyed our 3 nights and we were allowed our small dog. The cottage is charming, central to Sedbergh (which is a lovely spot) and the accommodation spacious and very comfortable, if I a little dated, but for a family we had tonnes of space (we had both rooms which are large) and a large bathroom to share. Lovely breakfast, lots to eat.
More than happy.

Lovely warm welcome at this cosy B&B but its the traditional sort so don't go looking for modern fitments or furnishings. Rooms have shared facilities but although other walkers were in that caused no problems.
Anne was off to a parish council meeting and was a treasure trove about local history and planning developments for Sedburgh. The National Park Authority are selling off their centre in the town and local organisations are pondering if they can raise enough cash to run it as a community concern.
Anne and Martyn, left on 14 June 2011
Traditional B&B, friendly welcome and excellent breakfast. Food at the Dalesman pub was really good.
Mark, left on 08 August 2010
A warm welcome in a traditional B&B. Rooms are comfortable and there was plenty of good advice about where to eat.

A lovely friendly place to stay, very cosy and comfortable. Evening meal taken at the nearby Dalesman pub which was very nice. Breakfast at Yew Tree was lovely. Thoroughly recommended.
David Proctor, left on 16 May 2010
An easy stroll over the moors on day 5. Yew Tree Cottage is a lovely place to stay. Anne is very friendly and helpful. There is a seperate lounge for guests to relax in. Not many dog friendly places to eat in Sedburgh but had an excellent meal at the Duo Cafe and Bistro.
Andrew and Elaine, left on 26 April 2010
What a delightful place to stay, we could not have been more comfortable and well looked after. Lovely big room with all facilities one could possibly want and excellent breakfast. Most warm and welcoming. We had a great evening meal at the Dalesman too. It was a most refreshing change after the horrors of the Station Inn at Ribblehead the night before. Would highly recommend Ann Jones at Yew Tree Cottage!.
Zoe and Joyce, left on 12 October 2009
It was our pleasure to stay an evening with Anne in May of this year. Her warm smile was a bright spot along the Dales Way. We had a very comfortable room, a good night's rest, and a tasty breakfast before she saw us off in the morning. Sedburgh is an interesting town, too, so two nights at this B&B would come highly recommended. It's not far off the Way,either, just up the hill from the bridge at Millthrop.

Josef & Clare, left on 07 April 2008
A very welcoming B + B, Anne was excellent at making us feel at home and reccomended and excellend place to eat that evening (The dalesman - has just been refurbished and looks very trendy but the food hasn't suffered - it was excellent) She even rang us to check we were OK when we arrived later than scheduled and it was getting dark. Breakfast was good, and room very comfortable

Lovely cottage, very warm and welcoming, bedroom and bed comfortable and the breakfast was smashing. Quiet location too.

We wholeheartedly agree with all the other comments Annie was great and made our stay a memorable one Kath and Chris
kath Broscombe, left on 10 October 2007
Stayed here July 07. We had a very warm welcome at this cosy cottage from Anne, who insisted we go straight in, wet boots, mud and all; newspaper was quickly provided for boot stuffing. We spent a very comfortable night and were waved off at the front door like old friends the next morning, leaving us with a warm glow.
Sue & David, left on 30 July 2007
Stayed here June 2007. Agree with all other comments. Just right.
Chris Spicer, left on 11 June 2007
This is a first class b & b. Annie was unbelievably helpful as we arrived by taxi, with my wife having felt faint (probably mild sunstroke). Annie took everything on for us as we decided to take a day off from the walk, finding us a room for tomorrow (as she was full) and contacting sherpa for us too. Everything was done cheerfully and you felt that nothing would be to much trouble. The following morning she drove us to our new b&b. At a time when we were exhausted and a little confused it was so wonderful to have such a competent and helpful woman on our side! The cottage itself is delightul, the breakfast sound and the guest lounge unusually roomy. We will be returning and recommend whole heartedly this great b& b to others.
Shaun, left on 29 May 2007
You will always get a warm welcome from Annie
We arrived on day 3 of the Dales Way, very late after a very long walk from Rasgills. Annie's face at eight oclock in the evening when she opened the door was a lasting memory. Two absolutely drowned rats, we stood there wet,hungry, cold and tired. Annie made us so welcome and nothing was to much trouble.
So much so that if we go walking in the Howgills we always take the time to knock on the door to say hello to this lovely lady, who always has the kettle on and a smile on her face.
Carol & Olivia, left on 08 May 2007
Anne is quite simply marvellous. She's a lovely host, has a cracking little B&B and her welcome and breakfasts are second to none.
We always stay there whenever we're in the area.
An absolute must - she knows lots about Sedbergh and her dining recommendations are always spot on.
Andrew Ross, left on 22 February 2007
Wonderful welcome from Anne, lovely room, very comfortable, excellent substantial breakfast. Anne very helpful and charismatic host. Meal at Dalesman very good and reasonable price.

Anne was a wonderful host and this was one of the biggest and most comfortable rooms we had all week.

At Anne's recommendation we ate in the Indian Restaurant which made a nice change from Pub food.

This place is amazing value for money and was one of the highlights of the week
Liz and Wendy, left on 19 August 2006
Very welcoming. We were provided with plenty of newspaper to dry our wet boots. Very comfortable bedroom with drinks making facilities. The guest sitting room had plenty of reading material and comfort, whilst enabling us to view the bird table visitors to a pretty garden. We were treated to a delicious and generous breakfast. On recommendation, we had an excellent Indian meal at the Taj Mahal in the centre of town.

Excellent B.+B ,Anne is a very friendly host,very informative about local area.Dalesman Inn provided our best evening meal on Dales Way.Yew Tree Cottage was definately our favourite stop,Anne couldnt have been more helpful.
J Power, left on 25 September 2004
This was our favourite stopover on the Dales Way. Anne treated us as though we were the first guests she had ever had, and clip said that she would seriously consider taking Anne on as her third grandma. The breakfast was great, the room was very nice, Milly the cat was cute and fat, the whole cottage was very charming and we highly recommend this B&B.
clip and clop, left on 26 July 2004
We had a three night stop in Sedbergh staying (a good base for exploring the Howgills) while walking the Dalesway. Anne gave us a warm welcome in her comfortable home. Loads of hot water, lovely bedroom, and excellent breakfasts. A definite recommendation by us.

And also `The Dalesman` Inn - about 400 yards away - provided the best evening meals of our whole holiday.
Jane and Andrew Pal, left on 04 August 2003
whilst recently walking the Dalesway we stayed with Anne and we were made very welcome and had a very comfortable stay and a super breakfast. Just what we needed after several days walking.
