A Warm Welcome to The Old Craft Barn & Cottage, Dent

Welcome to this affordable luxury, 5 star country Bed and Breakfast in a beautiful  location close to Dent and in The Yorkshire Dales National Park.

The Old Craft Barn can be found on the sunny side of Dentdale, nestling under Helms Knott, midway between the quaint village of Dent and the historic town of Sedbergh.

Dentdale is often said to be the most hidden and appealing of all of the Yorkshire Dales, ideal for visiting both the Lake District and the Western Dales. Perfect for walking, (The Dalesway) cycling (The Lakes & Dales Loop) and indeed motoring.

The Old Craft Barn offers the luxury of Five Star Bed and Breakfast to the more discerning traveller. It has been presented with a “Gold Award” and a “Breakfast Award” from Visit Britain and a ‘Certificate of Excellence’ from Tripadvisor. Three individually designed ensuite bedrooms offer a choice of,  king size with bathroom,  double with shower-room and  twin with shower-room.

A comfortable welcoming guest lounge with spectacular views of Combe Scar is an ideal ‘get-together’ space for friends or relatives wishing to spend some time together in the evening. The adjoining  breakfast room has individual tables but these can be rearranged inorder that a small party of guests can sit together and enjoy a first class breakfast.


The Cottage is an adjoining, cosy self-catering cottage for a maximum of four people. It has a ground floor double bedroom with en suite shower room and a first floor twin bedroom with en suite bathroom. Although it retains many of the original features it is equipped with all the modern day requirements.

Parking. There is ample free parking for all our guests on a private car-park and secure storing for cycles overnight. ( Please note, no responsibility can be accepted for loss or damage to any vehicles or their contents. )
