Whilst your children enjoy the Sedbergh Courses why not treat yourselves?

James and Nina have won countless awards since opening the Black Bull in 2018, just a few of which are highlighted below, along with some of the guides in which they can be found.

With the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales on the doorstep, use The Black Bull in Sedbergh as your base and explore all that’s on offer.
