The Old Potting Shed is a romantic hideaway for two set in the walled garden of the owners' house with its own private entrance. The retreat is totally secluded, but still just a minutes walk to Sedbergh's lovely pubs and cafes. It's the perfect base: head out walking in the hills straight from your door or use our electric bikes to explore the quiet lanes. When you get back, soak in the wood fired hot tub and enjoy a drink on the terrace while admiring the wonderful view of the fells.

The space
Originally part of an alpine nursery, the building has been sympathetically renovated to a very high standard with every modern comfort.
Inside you'll find: underfloor heating, a wood burner, bean-to-cup coffee maker, hob, toaster, fridge, a comfy sofa, somewhere to sit and eat or work, a king size bed and a bathroom with a lovely hot shower. Outside is the wood- fired hot tub with a view of the rear garden. At the front there is a patio with chairs and a fire pit.

Where you’ll be

Cumbria, England, United Kingdom

Sedbergh is a lovely quiet little market town and is the perfect base to explore the Yorkshire Dales or the Lake District. Wensleydale and Windermere are both about half an hour away. You can use our mini iPad with OS maps to plan walks and take it along so you won't get lost!
