Area Information

Garsdale sits in a narrow spectacular valley which defines the south eastern edge of the Howgill Fells, on the western slopes of the Pennines, between Baugh Fell to the north and Rise Hill to the south.  It is made up of stone cottages and farmhouses, nestled together with a village hall, church and chapel, resting at the foot of the Dale alongside the meandering river Clough.The nearest market towns are Sedbergh, 7 miles to the west, and Hawes, 9 miles to the east, both of which retain their ancient character and traditions and are well suited for shops, banks and traditional pubs.Further north lays Kirkby Stephen at the head of the Eden Valley, a popular centre for walkers and situated on the Cumbrian Way – a great route for all keen cyclists.To the south you will find Kirkby Lonsdale, and its surrounding area of outstanding landscape still retains the same beauty appreciated by Constable, Turner and Ruskin.With wonderful walks on your doorstep, and the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park surrounding you, this is an idyllic and peaceful setting for your holiday.
