The picturesque village of Dent lies in the Southern Lakeland district of Cumbria, quietly nestling on the western slopes of the Pennines which borders the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, this small village lies in the peaceful valley of Dentdale, attracting visitors all year round due to its tranquil atmosphere and walking opportunities.

A place of magnificent natural beauty, Dent boasts beautiful buildings, cobbled streets, stunning scenery, excellent walks and delightful annual festivals, further adding to its appeal as a holiday destination. Also a real hit with visitors who share a passion for the outdoors, with the Dalesway path and River Dee running along the edge of the valley, Dent offers a haven of outdoor landscapes for the visitor to explore.

The village itself boasts a local store, post office and three pubs, all of which serve award-winning ale from the Dent microbrewery, situated in nearby Cowgill. Dent's 12th century St Andrews church is also well worth a visit, where visitors can marvel at the remaining Norman features in its tower. Also home to a heritage centre, which showcases the lives of historical villagers gone by, where visitors can enjoy the tea rooms or a spot of delicious local ice cream, this small village has plenty to offer holidaymakers.

For those who are not travelling by car, Dent can be reached via Dent Railway Station, which is located 4.5 miles away from the village and is the highest railway station in Britain, some 1100 feet above sea level on the famous Carlisle to Settle railway.
