An ancient Celtic Kingdom deservedly known as 'The jewel of the Dales' !
Dent is 16 miles east of Kendal in the south east corner of Cumbria. Though Dentdale is in Cumbria it lies at the western edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Stretching from the windswept moors of Widdale Fell to the meeting of the rivers Dee and Rawthey near Sedbergh. Dentdale is the most secluded of the Dales and among the most lush and verdant. At the heart of this enclosed valley lies Dent itself with its stone built houses and narrow cobbled streets. You could be forgiven for thinking you'd stepped back in time but this is no museum piece its a working Dales Village. Visit www.dentdale.com for more information.
