Dent is a tiny village of stone cottages and cobbled streets close to the head of Dentdale, about five miles southeast of Sedbergh. It has two pubs, cafés, an art gallery, a blacksmith shop, a campsite and a few B&Bs. The local museum, the Dent Heritage Centre, houses an eclectic collection of artefacts relating to life in the valley over the last few centuries.
The Dales Way
The Dales Way, an 80-mile walking route from Ilkley to Windermere, skirts the edge of the village as it follows the River Dee downstream. For walkers with their sights set on higher things, Whernside, the highest peak in the Yorkshire Dales, can be climbed from Dent. Whernside is also one of the notorious three peaks.
Dent Station, England’s highest mainline railway station, is served by the Settle to Carlisle Railway but is more than four miles from the village.
