Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It's like stepping back in time (apart from the cars!). Beautifully kept cottages, a superb church, good pubs and a car park with clean toilets, all set in a simply stunning valley. There's even a tiny but useful shop. I could spend all summer here.

This ancient Dales village is approached by winding roads amid beautiful scenery, but its age means motorists have to tolerate some inconvenience. Much of the road surface is cobbled. There is a large car park (e-vehicles supported) with public toilets.
Nearby is a large museum ( entrance fee) displaying the arts and crafts of Dales farming folk and lots of people history. Locally-produced woollens are on sale.
We spent an hour in here without realising.
There are two pubs, three cafes and one shop - Dent Stores, 200 years old - which also offers excellent B&B. (See my review).
The pioneer geologist Adam Sedgewick was born here in 1785, commemorated by a rough-hewn rock in the village.

Altogether an attractive place to stay for walkers particularly.

The drive through Dent Dale is a lovely experience and one to take slowly stopping where you can to take in the views and atmosphere.
We followed two large farm vehicles for some of the way and what would have happened if a vehicle came the other way I do not know.
The village of Dent is well worth stopping to have a walk around……….Great area to explore.

This is a charming village in scenic Dentdale with a quaint cobbled street. The church of St Andrews is well worth a visit for its stained glass windows. Its other claim to fame, is the Sedgwick dynasty of ministers, one of whom, Adam Sedgwick, was a pioneer geologist who became Professor of Geology at Cambridge University. Our visit was made more atmospheric by a recent fall of snow.

Dent was mostly closed. 2 x pubs; one opens from Wednesday to Sunday and doesn’t do food the other opens Thursday to Sunday and does do food but only until 6:45 in the evening. October may not be high season but I was amazed nearby Sedbergh was also mostly closed - especially on a Sunday.

A lovely village with wonderful views. The drive through Dentdale is great. The cobblestone streets with old houses make it all very interesting. Well worth a stop.

Have an available parking officer to deal with on the spot issues. I got charged £30 for a weekly ticket instead of a day, which should have been £5. I tried for an hour to contact someone but to no avail. I emailed the following morning to be told the person who deals with its on holiday. Since I have been told they do not refund errors. I use it a lot and not happened before. TAKE CARE if you use the car park.

A very beautiful village in a fabulous glacial valley. The Sun Inn has been closed for many months, without a second pub this lovely village will struggle to cope with the demands of tourists in peak season. The George and Dragon provides great ales and pub food. The accommodation there looks very nice. A friendly quiet location, providing a good base for walking and touring the surrounding attractions. Campsites available.
