The town itself, with its narrow streets, little shops and traditional pubs also boasts a famous school dating back to 1536 and an impressive 12th Century church with an old-world atmosphere.

Great location for visiting the Dales and the Lakes. House is immaculate with every possible item needed at hand. Quaint but perfectly maintained. Stone built cottage but without the downsides. Warm, great fire, fittings all modern and effective. Bed very comfortable and as warm as you want. Very peaceful place, only five minutes into Sedburgh - really nice pubs (Black Bull is stylish with great food, including breakfasts) and cafes. Walks on doorstep if needed. Keswick 25 mins away, Windermere just beyond if you fancy lakes instead of hills. The owners are very responsive if needed, not that there is anything much that isn't already catered for. Recommend.

The cottage we hired far exceeded our expectations.. The surroundings were gorgeous and the cottage was perfect - Complete with dogs, turkeys and chickens to really complement the perfect country stay. All the facilities were great and perfect for our group of 5. The pool table come dining room table, was especially great. From the beginning of our trip Mrs Joyce was an accommodating and helpful host. She was always nearby, or contactable if we needed anything and really went out her way to make sure we had everything we needed. 5 star stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at Brant View with its peaceful and beautiful surroundings.. It was lovely to be staying at a farm seeing everyday the sheep, chickens, a turkey and of course, the owner's two friendly Border Collie sheepdogs. The owners looked after us ensuring we had a lovely time.

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at Brant View.. The cottage really is like a home from home, we felt relaxed as soon as we first walked through the door. We were holidaying as a family of 5, the youngest being 8 and the cottage was perfect. The children loved being met most mornings by the Turkey sitting on the door step, or the very friendly dogs waiting for a play in the garden. The owners, who are very attentive but not intrusive could not have been more helpful, even taking in my washing when we were out and it began to rain. We holidayed during a hot, sunny and mainly dry spell and so did not need any heating on, there was however instant and plentiful hot water when ever we needed it. The windows in the bedrooms have wooden shutters which we all liked and we slept with the windows open and the shutters closed most nights. We went for a walk up the nearby Cautley Spout, Englands highest waterfall above ground and continued to walk on the fells when we'd reached the top. The Lakes are not far from the house and we had a swim in Wast water, England's deepest Lake. Closer to Cautley, Sedbergh is just a short drive away and a lovely village, lots of walks and playing in the rivers, it also has a great older style sweet shop....lots of jars of sweets on the shelves which the children loved. We had a wonderful and peaceful holiday at Brant View coming home feeling refreshed and rested.(The children did not want to leave, one cried....a true mark of a great cottage and holiday)
Mrs Honeyman

Lovely cottage in a beautiful setting.. Lots of space, very comfortable and welcoming hosts. We enjoyed being able to walk and run from the doorstep and our teenagers enjoyed the pool table and the regular visits from Jess and Meg. We would like to go back again.

Arrived in the property up a track with wooland sides,to the first glimpse of thecottage.Very pretty surroundings,even the external presentation was pleasing. We met Mrs Joyce with the key,and were shown round with emphasis on any important points. First glance at the living room,all three of us were shocked by the size,very large, the online pictures dont do it justice!!Also that the bedrooms are on a second floor, wasnt clear from the images,very nice. The views across the valley are impressive.Its a short drive to Sedbergh, about 3kms ish. We had indepth conversations with Mr&Mrs Joyce,who made us feel welcome, would help us with anything if we needed. We spent most of our week,walkineg and caving around the Ingleton and Clapham area,and it was a pleasure to arrive back at our cottage in the evening, all in all,10/10 For location,comfort, hospitality, and we will be back next year!!!
May 2018
First time here for a 5 night stay and enjoyed every minute. Brant View is warm, comfortable and secluded; a great place to relax and explore a beautiful area. The cottage had everything we needed including the all important open fire for chilly evenings and a lovely garden when the sun shone.
May 2018
Wonderful cottage with beautiful views.. The cottage was spacious and clean. The owners made us feel at home with the warm welcome. We would definitely go back and recommend to anyone.
Mrs Burton
December 2017
Brant View was as described in website.. A comfortable barn conversion, very clean and spacious. Owners are very very accommodating and extremely pleasant. Their two sheepdogs are adorable. Being December the weather was cold and crisp but we were kept stocked up well with logs and kindling for the open fire - really cosy. The setting is beautiful with walks direct from the door. The athletic one in our party enjoyed the steep climbs around the cottage and spent most of his time walking. We visited a couple of the market towns and also the Lakes, we endured a white knuckle trip over the Buttertub pass in part icy conditions - not for anyone with a a fear of heights. Would definitely visit again.
Mrs Pedlar

Great property, warm spacious and comfortable.. Enjoyed the log fires. Welcoming hosts. Beautiful surroundings. Ideal place to tour either the Lakes or Dales from would go again. Two other properties on site so could make a large family get together.

We had an amazing time. The property was close to amenities and attractions. Brant View has a warm and homely feel, with absolutely breathtaking views. The owners made us feel so welcome and they are two of the nicest people I have met. They were both very kind and helpful. My daughter has such fond memories of her time spent there and was sad to leave. We will definitely be going back next year and would highly recommend Brant View.
Mr Whitby

Stayed in the cottage for a family holiday, the cottage was very well equipped and an ideal location for exploring the lake district and Yorkshire dales. The owners of the cottage were very welcoming and couldn't of been more helpful. We will definitely be visiting again.
Mr Williamson

When we first saw the cottage, we knew we were going to have a great time. Excellent scenery around the cottage and it's a good starting point to get round the lakes. We would recommend this holiday to everybody.
Mrs Stewart

The house was in a delightful setting with easy access to walks from the door. The fire was fantastic, which was great as the weather turned cold while we were there. The hosts were more than friendly and welcoming, and everything about our stay was great.

Sedbergh/Kirby Stephen area is quite literally Far from the Madding Crowd, much quieter than in the central Lake District. You can just walk around in the nearby hills that have fantastic views. The working farm is in a great setting, if you enjoy walking, and the owners were very friendly. On our trip in Easter we had sensational weather!

Escaped to Brant View for a week of utter peace and quiet and got exactly that! The location is perfect being situated away from the main road and in the tranquility of the countryside. Only a few miles from Sedbergh for local amenities and very pleasant walks/ drives in the countryside. The house is perfect with plenty of space to chill out and relax. The kitchen is ample and cooking utensils are satisfactory. Very spacious sitting/ dining area and the real fire is a delight, especially at night time. Bedrooms comfortable and the wooden shutters on the windows certainly block out the light to ensure a good night's sleep. Would gladly recommend for those seeking to get away from it all!
September 2013
This is the 3rd time we have stayed at Brant View and it wont be the last, since the last time we visited Alan and Lily have added another good sized double bedroom and joy of joys a pool table. The property now sleeps 6, 1 x king, 1 x double and 2 x single beds. The cottage is very spacious and has been renovated to a high standard, the surrounding countryside is absolutely beautiful. Being situated away from the main road its very quiet and peaceful and is a great place to kick back and relax. It is in an ideal spot to use as a base for both the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District national parks. The owners are extremely friendly and are an absolute pleasure to deal with. This is the nicest cottage we have ever stayed in hence the 3 visits so far !!! and i would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful and relaxing place to stay.
Mr Robertson
May 2013
The cottage is placed in a quiet location with magnificent views, the owners were very welcoming and helpful. Due to the time of year, they had lambs that they allowed us and our child to bottle feed, and their dogs were very well behaved and patient. The open fire has to be experienced.
March 2013
Charming hosts, comfortable place to stay - we have stayed at Birks Farm - both in Brant View and Knotts View three times and would have no hesitation in recommending the accommodation. We stayed longer than a week at all times and Lilly was very kind to give us extra linen and towels too! The open fire place in Brants View was a joy and Alan got some logs for us... we enjoyed playing with the 3 dogs and had some wonderful walks around the area. There are some good eating places nearby - so all in all would def. go back

A lovely secluded cottage run by a delightful family. The accommodation is spotlessly clean, warm, very well equiped and really cosy and comfortable.There is everything you need for a great stay- and if you would like anything else then nothing seems too much for the owners.

Would definitely recommend to family and friends. The open fire in the living area was a lovely sight when it was lit. The seperate area of the lounge where you can sit and read was a good idea.
