For a small town, Sedbergh bustles with activities and community events and there is much to see and do. For all the ‘thrill seekers’ out there, please keep in mind that we can also arrange activities for your stay from archery to bushcraft!
Don’t leave Sedbergh until you’ve…
- Browsed the local guide ‘Look around’ which provides a great read and information about local events and activities. Available from most shops in town.
- Explored the many ginnels, nooks and crannies hiding a wealth history…what are those cannons lying around the town?!
- Tasted the artisan breads and cakes freshly made at ‘early o’clock’ by James and Nina at the Three Hares.
- Watched one of Farfield Mill’s resident textile artists creating something wonderful, bought one of the many beautiful handmade items in the galleries or created your own woolly wonder by joining the ‘Knitters and Natter’ group in the Weavers’ Café.
- Exhilarated yourself with an off track mountain bike trek up Winder.
- Walked a part of the Dales Way and admired the stunning rivers and hills.
