With two bedrooms sleeping up to four guests, this lodge suits families, friends and couples alike, providing off-road parking for two cars, high-quality facilities, and exceptional views of the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. Be welcomed into an open-plan living space with a classic rustic interior, alongside stylish and contemporary furnishings. The kitchen area has everything you need for a self-catering holiday; prepare home-cooked dinners using the electric oven, gas hob, and microwave, whilst the dishwasher does all the cleaning. Gather around the table for four, or perhaps you'd prefer to dine outside on summer days? The bi-fold doors bring in plenty of natural light and open onto your private patio with a picnic bench, plus panoramic views of the Coniston and Langdale mountains, and the Howgill Fells! An ideal base all year-round, colder nights can be spent in the sitting area by the warmth of the woodburning stove, whilst you relax on the sofas and watch the Smart TV. You'll also find a handy washer and dryer right by the front door, ideal for throwing your walking gear straight in after adventuring through the Dales or Lakes. Step into the walk-in shower of the stylish bathroom or unwind with a bubble bath, before choosing between two king-size bedrooms, both of which have been thoughtfully decorated with storage space, artwork, and beautiful wooden furnishings. The owners of this property run the local stud, Willowsway Stud, where you will be able to book horse riding and pony experiences, great for the whole family! Your nearby conveniences include Kitridding Farm Shop for picking up local produce, whilst The Club Inn in Gatebeck is a family-friendly pub to stop for dinner and a drink.

About the location


Kendal 9 miles.

An attractive market town, Kirkby Lonsdale is situated in the heart of the Lune Valley, midway between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. The town was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, and holds a 13th century Market Charter. Nowadays, Thursday is market day, a perfect opportunity for visitors to explore the variety of distinctive independent shops in the town, or the many 17th and 18th century buildings which still stand. The town was also a finalist for the High Street of the Year Award in 2016. This part of the Lune Valley was a favourite haunt of the artist Turner, and was made famous by Ruskin – his "view" of the valley is still spectacular. The medieval Devil’s Bridge spans the river, and the quiet country lanes are ideal for exploring by car, bike, or even horse. There are three golf courses nearby, as well as tennis, riding, fishing and a variety of riverside and country walks, making the area an ideal location for a break, whatever time of year. When voting Kirkby Lonsdale as the ‘Best Place to Live in The North West’ in 2019, The Sunday Times commented it is “An unbeatable Lake District location, bags of community spirit and one of the cleanest high streets in the country".
